Houston Texans depleted at tight end

Houston Texans interim head coach Wade Phillips admits that the team is struggling at the tight end position.

The Houston Texans have said that they are having to make adjustments following a string of injuries at tight end.

Owen Daniels is yet to return to practice after breaking his leg, while Garrett Graham has missed this week with a hamstring injury, which could keep him out of their game with the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday.

Interim head coach Wade Phillips told reporters: "[Owen's] still not practising any. Certainly wouldn't look for him this week. I think maybe they're shooting for next week, but I don't know for sure.

"Well, [Graham] hasn't practised the last two days. We're obviously worried about that. We're down to two tight ends, but only one of them has played. And he's played as a backup. [Ryan] Griffin's really the only that's played.

"We have that in our package to be able to put a tackle in at tight end, those kind of things. We still have a full back. We still have a two-back offense and we'd have to make some adjustments as far as two tight ends."

The Texans currently have the worst record in the league, having lost their last 11 games.
