Texans CB Kayvon Webster placed on IR

Kayvon Webster

The 2018 NFL season of Houston Texans cornerback Kayvon Webster is almost like an illusion, as he only made one appearance for the team before being placed on the injured reserve list, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Webster played in only two snaps during his debut in Texans threads in last Sunday’s 19-16 overtime home win over the Dallas Cowboys but it was all it took for his body to suffer a quadriceps injury. This injury is another bad break in the career of Kayvon Webster, who made his Texans debut following an arduous rehabilitation to recover from an Achilles issue.

With Webster out for at least eight weeks – and likely for the rest of the season – Houston felt it was necessary to promote defensive back Mike Tyson, also according to Rapoport.

The Texans’ secondary is one of the most banged up of its kind in the NFL. Webster is the third Houston cornerback to get placed on the injured reserve, joining the pair of Kevin Johnson and Aaron Colvin on the list.

Webster was signed by the Texans to a one-year deal worth $2.25 million back in August, but will now concentrate more on getting back to 100 percent form in time for next year’s free agency period. The 27-year old South Florida product previously suited up for the Los Angeles Rams, playing 11 games for the team last year before sustaining the aforementioned Achilles injury that ended his 2017 season.

The Texans, meanwhile, will look to get their third-straight victory this coming Sunday against the Buffalo Bills at home.
