The latest on Texans injuries
Following Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, the Texans have a number of injuries to keep an eye on this week. Tight end Ryan Griffin, cornerback Johnathan Joseph, and right guard Jeff Allen are all in the league's concussion protocol. 
"That will be day-to-day basically," head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday.
Griffin was hit and down on the field for several minutes following his injury. After being attended to by team trainers and physicians, he walked off the field on his own. Safety Quintin Demps (calf) and linebacker Brian Peters (quadriceps), a big contributor on special teams, also left the game early and are considered day-to-day.
Starting left tackle Duane Brown returned from his quadriceps surgery for his first start of the 2016 season. While he was in a rotation with Chris Clark, Brown seemed to in his first game action in over nine months. 
"Duane Brown came out of the game and said he felt pretty good, so we'll check with him and see how he's doing and kind of go from there," O'Brien said.
