Houston Texans Place Bruce Ellington on the Injured Reserve

The Houston Texans have placed wide receiver Bruce Ellington on the injured reserve after injuring his hamstring on Sunday against the New York Giants. Ellington was injured on the 4th offensive snap of the game where he immediately reached for his left hamstring which ended his day for the Texans and possibly his stint with the organization.

Ellington has battled hamstring injuries since he arrived in the NFL and has been placed on the injured reserve the past two seasons with the Texans. Also, Ellington has not played 16 games during his NFL career due to injuries which is disappointing due to his athletic ability from the slot.

Simple out route. Ellington leaves holding his left hamstring.

Ellington turned into one of Deshaun Watson's favorite targets and worked well with both DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller in the middle of the field. With Ellington set to hit the injured reserve, it appears that rookie Keke Coutee is closer to joining the team after missing nearly two months due to his own hamstring injury.
