Texans are expected to be without Justin Reid, Mike Adams vs. Colts

Texans, Justin Reid, Mike Adams, Colts

If the Houston Texans are going to beat the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night, they are going to have to do it without two of their safeties.

According to Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle, both Justin Reid and Mike Adams will be sidelined for the Texans’ Week 12 AFC South showdown with the Colts.

Both players suffered concussions during their team’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens this past Sunday.

Obviously, Reid is the bigger loss here, as he is a starter for Houston.

In 10 games this season, Reid has logged 54 tackles, an interception and a couple of passes defended.

The 22-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Stanford, was originally selected by the Texans in the third round (68th pick overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft.

He appeared in 16 contests during his rookie campaign, finishing with 88 tackles, three picks, a forced fumble, a pair of fumble recoveries, 10 passes defended and a defensive touchdown.

Meanwhile, Adams just joined the Texans in October.

He has appeared in just three contests with Houston this season, tallying one tackle.

Since joining the NFL in 2004, the 38-year-old has played for the San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, Colts and Carolina Panthers before linking up with the Texans. He made a couple of Pro Bowls during his time in Indianapolis.

Houston fell to 6-4 on the season with its loss to the Ravens in Week 11, causing it to drop into a tie with the Colts for first place in the AFC South. However, the Colts currently own the tiebreaker, as they defeated the Texans in Indy earlier in the year.
