We told you early Sunday that Texans defensive end Connor Barwin suffered a gruesome injury against the Colts.
Unfortunately, the injury proved as painful as it looked. Barwin is expected to miss the season with a dislocated ankle, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
"That's a tough loss," coach Gary Kubiak said. "He's a fine young player doing some great things for us. They're trying to get the pain under control right now. Obviously, we'll have to fix (surgery) it, but I don't know when."
We know Aaron Schobel says he doesn't want to play, but perhaps this will help Houston offer him a little more money to return to football. Barwin's replacement on Sunday was second-year undrafted Jesse Nading.
