HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) – Kenny Stills left Sunday’s loss to the Panthers late in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and didn’t return.  When Stills gets back on the playing field is now up in the air. 

“We’re going to have to wait and see what happens here while he sees the doctors today (Monday),” Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien said during his Monday press conference.

Stills, through four games, has caught 11 passes for 188 yards and a touchdown after being included in the Laremy Tunsil trade from Miami. 

If Stills were to miss action, the Texans could turn to Keke Coutee and DeAndre Carter to help out in the slot.

While DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller have the outside spots covered, they could see their snap count percentage increase.

“Anytime you lose a guy like Kenny, it’s not easy.  Kenny is a productive player, he’s done a good job for us,” O’Brien added.  “That’s what we’re upstairs right now trying to figure that out as we move forward.  We have Keke (Coutee), we have DeAndre Carter, they’re different types of players though than him.”
