HOUSTON: (CBS Houston) – The Houston Texans will be without their star tight end after Owen Daniels suffered a broken fibula in Sunday Night’s 34-3 loss at San Francisco. The injury means 4-8 weeks on the sidelines for the two time pro bowler and Matt Schaub’s favorite target behind Andre Johnson.

Daniels had an MRI on his leg on Monday and the Sports Radio 610 and Houston Chronicle’s John McClain is reporting the injury healing time is based on where the break is. Backup tight end Garrett Graham, who is tied with Owen Daniels for the team lead in touchdown catches (3), will take up the role as the featured tight end in the Texans offense. Rookie Ryan Griffin will move up in the depth chart to the backup spot.

No word on if J.J. Watt will see time in three tight end sets. The coaching staff took a look at Watt at tight end before the season started.

Daniels has caught 24 passes for 254 yards and three touchdowns for the Texans so far this season.
