After being evaluated by Texans training staff, Ward was helped off the field. He was downgraded to out with a concussion with 13:09 left in the third quarter.
Ward has missed five games this season due to injury. His most recent run with an injury was a hamstring issue, which he missed three games for. Ward returned for Week 13 against Denver and ended up having the game-winning interception in the endzone to seal a crucial 22-17 Texans victory.
