Texans Place Running Back David Johnson on Injured Reserve

The short-handed Texans will be hurting at the running back spot against Cleveland Sunday, as the club Saturday put running back David Johnson on injured reserve.

Johnson left the team’s Week 9 game in Jacksonville with a concussion after taking a hit from linebacker Myles Jack in the second quarter.

With David Johnson out the team will turn to Duke Johnson, who had a career-high 20 touches in the win over the Jaguars.

In the game he had 41 yards on 16 carries with a touchdown, and also caught four passes for 32 yards.

Without David Johnson the Texans promoted running back C.J. Prosise to the active roster.

The team also has running back Buddy Howell on the roster, but he’s not taken an offensive snap this season.

Saturday the team also placed linebacker Dylan Cole on injured reserve.
