NT Sonny Harris Out for the Year with a Torn Triceps

Texans nose tackle Sonny Harris will miss the rest of the season with a torn triceps muscle, Nick Scurfield of Houstontexans.com reports.

Coach Gary Kubiak announced the news on Wednesday afternoon at Reliant Stadium. Harris, a second-year pro out of Oregon, was injured during an individual period of practice on Tuesday.

“It’s a very unfortunate situation,” Kubiak said. “He had been playing really good for us, but he’s going to go on I.R.”

The loss of Harris leaves the Texans with two healthy nose tackles for their upcoming preseason game at New Orleans. Starter Shaun Cody is out with a lower back injury. Earl Mitchell, who rotates with Cody, and Hebron Fangupo, an undrafted rookie from BYU, will play against the Saints.
