Houston Texans right tackle Tytus Howard won’t be traveling back with the team after the 27-20 loss to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The former 2019 first-round pick from Alabama State will be staying behind at an Indianapolis hospital overnight, which is a standard precaution after a player has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Howard sustained the concussion with 12:27 to go in the second quarter of the loss that sent the Texans to 4-10 on the season. Swing tackle Roderick Johnson replaced Howard for the remainder of the game.

If Howard misses any time, the Texans could possibly activate fourth-round rookie Charlie Heck to serve as swing tackle as Johnson would substitute for Howard for a game.
