BREAKING: Houston Texans Rising Star Wide Receiver Has Injury Status Revealed…
The Houston Texans, via stud rookie quarterback, C.J Stroud, and impressive offensive coordinator, Bobby Slowik, have turned what looked like a lacklustre group of pass catchers into one of the premier young receiver corps in the National Football League.
And one of the rising stars of this receiver group has now had his likely playing status revealed, per Houston Texans insider and reporter, Aaron Wilson:
How Does This Impact The Houston Texans Offense?
The Houston Texans’ offense has been firing on all cylinders this season, with receivers Tank Dell, Nico Collins and Robert Woods – alongside Brown – having showcased excellent form over the first 12 weeks of the 2023 season. The Texans rank 6th in the NFL in total yards, including 2nd in passing yards. Needless to say, the passing attack has been lethal for the team that finished 31st in total yards and a 3-13-1 record less than one year ago – in what has been a borderline miraculous turnaround from head coach DeMeco Ryans.
#Texans veteran wide receiver Noah Brown (knee contusion) expected to play Sunday against #Broncos sources tell me and @KPRC2Ari Big-play threat missed past two games. If warmups go smooth, as expected, should be good to go.

However, even with the return of Brown and Tank Dell, who was previously listed as questionable, are both ready to go for Sunday, the Texans are still missing a core part of their offense, with impressive starting tight end, Dalton Schultz, ruled out for tomorrow’s game. Schultz only ranks 12th amongst tight ends in receiving yards, but joint 2nd in touchdowns, with only the now out-for-the-season, Mark Andrews, surpassing him.
Thus, the Texans will still be down a key red zone threat against a Denver Broncos team whose defense has had somewhat of a resurgence during a 5 game win streak, during which they have turned the ball over a staggering 16 times. Yet, the Texans are still 3 point favorites at home against the Broncos, in one of the earliest crucial playoff games, where a loss for either side puts them truly behind the sticks in the race for one of the three wild card spots.
