CJ Fiedorowicz Placed on IR with Concussion; Jaelen Strong Activated

13 September 2017

Houston will be scrambling to fill the roster spots in time to field a full team on the abbreviated work week. Houston was ransacked by the Jacksonville Jaguars defense en route to 10 sacks and a 29-7 loss.

The Texans now have 5 players out with concussions, including all active tight ends: C.J. Fiedorowicz, Ryan Griffin, Stephen Anderson, Bruce Ellington, and Brian Cushing.

It's unfortunate that Fiedorowicz's season is already over, but he just suffered a concussion during the preseason and there is clearly some concern on the side of the Texans.

Fiedorowicz had his breakout season in 2016, making 54 catches for 559 yards and four touchdowns after combining for 21 receptions, 195 yards and two scores in his first two seasons.

For his 2016 efforts, he was given a three-year extension on August 31. Strong was suspended for one game before the season for being arrested for possession of marijuana before the 2015 season in Phoenix.

"I'm ready", Baylis told the Houston Chronicle.

The Texans go on the road this Thursday night for a game with the Cincinnati Bengals.
