Houston Texans receiver DeVier Posey suffered a torn Achilles tendon in Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots, the Houston Chronicle reported.
"It felt like I got shot. I've never felt anything like it," Posey told the Chronicle.
A torn Achilles is a serious injury that will require surgery, and it is uncertain whether he will be ready for the start of the 2013 season.
Posey, a rookie, did not have any receptions in the first 12 games of the season, but had six catches for 87 yards in the last four regular-season games. He had three catches for 47 yards in Sunday's game before the injury.
