An update on the Houston Texans’ COVID-19 list
Lonnie Johnson Jr., Ka’imi Fairbairn, Brandin Cooks, Eric Murray, AJ Moore Jr., Jordan Jenkins, Jonathan Greenard, Eric Wilson, Lane Taylor, Justin Britt, Tytus Howard, Roy Lopez, Jaleel Johnson, Derek Rivers, Maliek Collins , and now David Johnson, Paul Quessenberry, and Neville Hewitt are on the COVID-19 list.
A week after beating the Los Angeles Chargers with 23 players on the COVID-19 reserve roster, the roster added three more names. Running back David Johnson, injured on the quad last week, backup linebacker Neville Newitt, who is now starting linebacker, and practice team full-back Paul Quessenberry are on the roster. Hopefully some of the players from last week will be reinstated this week to accommodate the San Francisco 49ers.
This has led to changes. Like we learn what a Connor Strachan is, that Chris Owens is JJ Watt, and Jonathan Owens will be making Justin Reid a consumable next year. Tremon Smith is now a running back. This. Yes. This. So much that.
The 49ers, on the other hand, only have their bettor Mitch wishnowsky on the COVID-19 list. One team needs their team to come back, and the other is complete. The Texans and 49ers are set to play this Sunday, Jan.3 at 3:05 p.m.
