Browns, Texans playoff injury report: Long list of DNPs on Tuesday for both teams

Will Anderson, Amari Cooper among the big names with injury designations

Major injuries decided the season for a lot of teams in the NFL. The Cleveland Browns did not allow all the major injuries that they had to deal with decide their season. Instead, the Browns lost player after player and still cruised to an 11-6 record and no need to care about Week 18’s results.

The Houston Texans, like every team, have had their fare share of injuries on the way to their AFC South championship as well.

Both teams are hoping injuries don’t define the Wild Card game but both had a long list of players not participating in the first practice of the week on Tuesday.

Unlike the regular season where only the last day mattered, this week the second day of practice has a little more weight. Many of the above players who did not practice today also did not practice much or at all last week and would benefit from two days of practice in advance of the most important game of the season.

Texans Injury Report

  • DE Will Anderson Jr. - Ankle - DNP
  • WR Noah Brown - Back - DNP
  • DT Maliek Collins - Hip - DNP
  • DE Jonathan Greenard - Ankle - DNP
  • DE Jerry Hughes - Ankle -DNP
  • DT Sheldon Rankins - Shoulder - DNP
  • WR Robert Woods - Hip - DNP
  • OL Shaq Mason - Rest - DNP
  • OL Laremy Tunsil - Rest - DNP
  • FB Andrew Beck - Calf - Limited
  • OL Michael Deiter - Elbow - Limited

The vast majority of Houston’s defensive line starters and rotation did not practice today due to ankle and hip issues. Something to watch as Tuesday rolls into Wednesday.


Is there a player on each team whose injury status above could decide the game if they can’t play on Saturday?
