- Texans coach Gary Kubiak just announced that rookie TE Anthony Hill is out for season with a torn ACL (42 minutes ago)
- Kubiak was impressed with rookie RB Arian Foster yesterday. Said they plan to get him more involved (41 minutes ago)
- Kubiak on rookie CB Brice McCain, who's been improving on special teams & defense: "You're going to see him play some more football." (37 minutes ago)
Hill, a fourth-round draft pick out of North Carolina State, had one catch in five games this season. Here's some of what Kubiak said about his injury:
"We didn't know the severity of his injury (during the game). We knew he got hurt. He ended up playing. He played like 10-12 plays in the game, then they checked him out today and he did have a tear. I think it's the same one he tore in college, so he's got a long road ahead of him. So we'll get that fixed as quick as possible."
