Texans TE Pharaoh Brown held from practice with hamstring injury


(SportsRadio 610) - Texans tight end Pharaoh Brown stood on the sidelines for Wednesday's practice while he deals with a hamstring injury, head coach Lovie Smith said.

Brown and second-year pro Brevin Jordan are considered the Texans' top two tight ends. It's a thin group after that. Antony Auclair, a veteran mostly used for his blocking ability, is also out with a knee injury.

The Texans have gone to undrafted rookie Seth Green, who played college ball at the University of Houston, for depth. They drafted Teagan Quitoriano out of Oregon State in the fifth round, but he's also dealt with a lingering knee injury since the start of training camp.

To address the whole at tight end, Houston tried trading for Adam Shaheen from the Miami Dolphins. But Shaheen failed his physical due to his own knee injury, voiding the trade, and has since been placed by on the injured reserve for season-ending knee surgery.
