Ballentine will miss the remainder of the season.
It was previously reported that Ballentine, 22, sustained a ACL tear when he left Sunday’s game in the fourth quarter after colliding with Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson. Following the injury, Ballentine was fitted for an air cast and carted off the field by medical personnel.
Before being sidelined, Ballentine had recorded three tackles with a pass deflection during the eventual 31–20 win.
Ballentine, who played college football at Memphis, was selected by the Texans with the final pick of the 2014 draft.
The Texans (2–4) will travel to Miami to face the Dolphins (2–3) on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
