INJURY ROUNDS

Lamar Miller | Ankle sprain | Day-to-Day

Miller suffered yet another late fourth quarter ankle injury. Despite Miller's insistence he'd be available this week, the mechanism on this one is more worrisome than the others. Although Miller's foot was in the air rather than planted, the tackle forced his ankle to rotate in a way consistent with a high ankle sprain. It wasn't a particularly violent mechanism but it's possible Miller misses practice midweek and is considered a game-time decision for the Texans' game on Saturday night.
