(SportsRadio 610) -- Texans wide receiver Randall Cobb is headed to the injured reserve, but the team hopes he can return later this season, according to a report by the Houston Chronicle.
The Texans are placing Cobb on injured reserve with a minor designation, the Chronicle reports.
The Texans officially ruled out Cobb for Thursday's game against the Detroit Lions. Fullback Cullen Gillaspia (back), defensive tackle P.J. Hall (knee / shoulder), quarterback Josh McCown (illness) and wide receiver Kenny Stills (quadricep) were also ruled out for the Thanksgiving Day game and did not travel to Detroit.
Cobb was injured in Sunday's win against the New England Patriots, when he caught a touchdown pass in the first quarter.
Third-year slot receiver Keke Coutee stepped in his place and later caught his first touchdown pass of the season, after not seeing the field since Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Cobb, formerly of the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys, is in the first season of a three-year, $27 million contract with the Texans. He has 441 receiving yards and three touchdowns on 38 catches.
