After a crushing defeat to the Rams on Sunday, the Texans took another loss on Monday.

According to head coach Gary Kubiak, Danieal Manning has a significant knee injury.

"Danieal, as it’s explained to me, has a significant knee injury," Kubiak said. "And something that’s going to take some time. We’re trying to evaluate exactly how much time before we make some decisions moving forward."

The Houston Chronicle previously reported that  Manning would be out for 6-8 weeks with a fracture in his fibula. Kubiak said that was untrue.

Manning, 31, will be replaced by Shiloh Keo, who started for Ed Reed before the veteran was healthy. Manning has played very well this season.
