Texans rookie WR Nico Collins is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with a shoulder injury that he sustained in Sunday’s loss to Browns, per source.
Collins hasn't been a huge factor so far, but did add his second catch of the season in Week 2 with a 32-yard grab. Brandin Cooks remains the big threat in the offense at WR catching 9 passes for 78 yards and a TD.
The release of Coutee is a bit of a surprise considering the Texans aren't necessarily loaded at the position. Outside of Cooks, a lot of playing time and targets will be up for grabs and among them should be Collins and Conley at this point.
The injury was called a “slight dislocation” immediately after the game. Miller previously underwent surgeries on his left shoulder after experiencing dislocations, however this injury was to his right shoulder. This will obviously set him back for any kind of significant playing time upon his return.
This is not a surprise according to Wilson, but on a team that is unsettled at the position, it is noteworthy to see Conley as a starter. The Texans should be an avoid in all drafts as long as Deshaun Watson is not under center.
