HOUSTON (AP) Miami tight end Dustin Keller has sustained what appears to be a serious right leg injury in the second quarter against the Houston Texans.

Keller's leg bent unnaturally when he was tackled on the right knee by D.J. Swearinger on an incomplete pass Saturday night. He immediately grabbed his right knee and was soon carted off the field.

The team didn't provide any official word on his injury.

Keller spent his first five seasons with the New York Jets before signing with the Dolphins in the offseason.

He had one reception for 14 yards on Saturday.
