Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels suffered a broken leg toward the end of the San Francisco game Sunday night and will be out at least 4-6 weeks,KPRC-TV Houston reports.
Head coach Gary Kubiak said Garrett Graham will start in Daniels' place.
Despite Graham playing well this season, the injury is a blow to a team trying to turn things around after three consecutive losses.
"Obviously, you want OD out there, but he's gonna heal up, he's got time. The bye week will come at a good time for him," said JJ Watt. "Garrett's a great football player and so he's gonna come in and he's gonna do great for us."
Daniels had 24 receptions for 252 yards and 3 TDs so far this season.
He could miss up to 8 weeks if he's placed on the Injured Reserve - Designated to Return list. The Texans host the Rams at Reliant Stadium on Sunday.
