Eagles-Texans Week 9 injury report, with analysis

The Philadelphia Eagles remain a relatively healthy team, even after Jordan Davis suffered a concerning ankle injury on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Their Week 9 opponent, the Houston Texans, have eight players on their initial injury report, plus some notable players on injured reserve. 

Here’s the Eagles-Texans injury report, with analysis.

Player  Injury  Mon* Tues Wed Status 
DT Jordan Davis Ankle DNP
CB Josiah Scott   Ankle   DNP       

Monday notes (walkthrough only):

• Davis is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, according to initial reporting from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. If that timeframe for return is accurate, the Eagles will likely place Davis on injured reserve, and he would be eligible to return to the active roster Week 13.

Notable players on IR, PUP, suspension, etc.

• DE Derek Barnett (IR): Barnett tore his ACL Week 1 against the Lions, and his season is over. After a 2021 season in which he had 8 penalties vs. 2.5 sacks, Barnett lost his starting job, but remained a depth player poised to get his share of snaps in 2022.


Player  Injury  Mon*  Tues  Wed  Status 
DT Maliek Collins Chest DNP
WR Nico Collins   Groin   DNP       
LB Neville Hewitt  Hamstring   DNP       
OG Justin McCray  Concussion   DNP       
S Grayland Arnold  Quad   DNP       
OG A.J. Cann  Illness   Limited       
LB Christian Harris  Thigh   Limited       
 S Desmond King Knee   Limited       

Monday notes (walkthrough only)

• The most notable name among the players who didn’t practice for the Texans on Monday is probably Nico Collins, a starting wide receiver who has 18 receptions for 305 yards and 0 TDs this season.

Notable players on IR, PUP, suspension, etc.

• WR John Metchie (NFI): The Texans released a statement from Metchie this summer that he has been diagnosed with leukemia. 

Metchie is a rookie second-round pick who was potentially in line for a starting role on a Texans offense that lacks quality receivers. His health is what matters more here, obviously.

C Justin Britt (NFI): Britt was the Texans’ starting center Week 1, but he left the team for personal reasons, and is now on the reserve/non-football illness list. Scott Quessenberry has started at center since.

DB Tavierre Thomas: Thomas played in all 17 games at slot corner for the Texans in 2021, starting 8. He had high number of tackles (86) for a corner, as well as 2 INTs and a forced fumble. He has not yet played in 2022, but is designated for return from injured reserve.

DE Jonathan Greenard (IR): Greenard is a third-year player who had 8 sacks and two forced fumbles in 2021. He was off to a decent start in 2022 (9 tackles, 1.5 sacks) in 2022 before landing on injured reserve after Week 4.

DT Michael Dwumfour (IR): Dwumfour was part of the Texans’ defensive line rotation earlier this season, playing 112 snaps in the first four games. He was oddly unproductive, making just two tackles before landing on injured reserve.
