Myers, Reeves leave practice with injuries

Two Texans starters left practice on Tuesday morning with apparent leg injuries: center Chris Myers and cornerback Jacques Reeves.

Myers "got rolled up," according to coach Gary Kubiak.

"We were pretty sloppy this morning as a team, and we were on the play and the back got pushed into him," Kubiak said. "So we'll sit here and hope for the best, go get a look at it."

Reeves got tangled up covering wide receiver André Davis in the end zone. Kubiak said after practice that Reeves will be sent in for an X-ray. He expects to have an answer on Reeves' health this afternoon.

Both Myers and Reeves started all 16 games for the Texans last season. The Texans are already down some bodies in camp at their respective position groups: left guard Chester Pitts (shoulder) and cornerbacks Glover Quin (leg), Antwaun Molden (Active/PUP list, foot) and Dunta Robinson (contract).

Backups Antoine Caldwell and Chris White will get reps in Myers' place if Myers misses any time. Kubiak said that right guard Mike Brisiel can move over and play center if needed as well.

More details to come.
