According to Adam Caplan of FOXSports.com, Texans starting DE Mario Williams was dealing with a groin injury coming into Thursday night’s game against the Eagles. Apparently, the injury was worse than first thought. “Obviously it’s been bothering him but he’s been fighting through it for the team,” head coach Gary Kubiak said Friday.
“I know it’s bothering him, just watching him play last night, watching him try to fight through it. He had some injections on Wednesday in Philadelphia before the game. Sometimes it takes a few days for those injections to kick in. He’s been doing all he can but I know it’s obviously bothering him. So we’ll continue to treat him the same way we’ve been doing it, trying to bring him along to each game day. I think he’s trying to give us everything he’s got, but it’s obviously been bothering him.” Kubiak confirmed exactly what Williams’ injury is. “Mario’s sports hernia, you know he’s been battling through that all year long. And that’s about it.”
