Lineman Justin McCray evaluated for a concussion vs. Titans

After managing to stay healthy for the first half of their Week 8 matchup against the Tennessee Titans, the floodgates have opened for the Houston Texans as offensive lineman Justin McCray was evaluated for a concussion in the fourth quarter. The news of McCray’s status came just minutes after it was reported that defensive back Grayland Arnold was deemed to be questionable to return with a quad injury before eventually being ruled out.

McCray was filling in for veteran A.J. Cann as a starter on the Texans’ offensive line and had been something of a liability up front for Houston before taking a big hit and exiting the game. The team marked several key players on their Friday injury report, which has played a major role in the Texans’ struggles in this matchup.

The injured lineman is a nine-year pro who some thought would be able to buoy Houston’s offensive front this season with his veteran leadership. While his status remains in question for the rest of this matchup, the role he is able to play in the coming weeks will be something to keep your eye on as Houston looks to eke out their second win of the season against challenging opponents in the middle part of their schedule.
