The Houston Texans are going to have to rely on backups Geron Christian and Charlie Heck at their tackle spots against the Indianapolis Colts.
The Houston Texans are getting younger at right tackle. A back injury to starter Marcus Cannon has forced the Texans to place the former New England Patriots 2011 fifth-round pick from TCU on injured reserve. Taking his place is second-year tackle Charlie Heck, who started in Week 5 against New England.
"We hope so," Texans coach David Culley said of Amendola's potential availability this week against the Indianapolis Colts. "He was close this week. By Friday, we felt like he needed another week."
