Texans Receive Encouraging Update on Tank Dell’s Injury Rehabilitation

Tank Dell, the promising rookie for the Houston Texans, has embarked on his recovery journey from a broken fibula, initiating light pool exercises in January. According to a report by Will Kunkel of FOX 26 Houston, medical professionals overseeing Dell’s rehabilitation have indicated positive progress in his recovery. However, Kunkel underscored that Dell still faces a considerable road ahead, particularly given the late-season timing of his injury in Week 13 against the Denver Broncos.

Dell sustained his injury towards the end of a three-yard touchdown run by Dameon Pierce, which occurred when Houston held a 10-0 lead with approximately four minutes remaining in the first quarter. This setback interrupted Dell’s impressive performance streak, during which he achieved four consecutive games with a minimum of eight targets, 50 yards, and one touchdown. Reflecting on Dell’s injury in December, Texans offensive coordinator Bobby Slowik remarked, “That one hurts a lot. Not as a football player, it has nothing to do with football. Just as a person, as an individual, he’s a really special kid, and it’s been a joy to have him around. It’s been a joy to have him just be part of what we’ve done this year.”

Despite the setback, Dell’s rookie season statistics underscored his potential impact. With averages of 4.3 catches for 54.5 yards and 0.64 touchdowns per game, Dell showcased himself as a significant asset in the Texans offense. These figures are even more impressive considering he missed two early-season games due to injuries. Excluding the injury-affected games, Dell’s stats were notably higher, with averages of 5.1 catches for 77.3 yards and 0.88 touchdowns on 8.5 targets per game. Looking forward, the Houston offense appears poised for success with C.J. Stroud distributing passes to Dell, along with fellow breakout star from 2023, Nico Collins.
