Texans placed NT D.J. Reader on injured reserve with a sprained knee, ending his season.
Last year's fifth-round pick, Reader replaced retired Vince Wilfork as the Texans' starting nose this season. He played really well, showing up as a pass rusher and run plugger in the middle. Reader graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 14 defensive tackle out of 74 qualifiers and should start in 2018. Wed, Dec 20, 2017 11:16:00 AM
