HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- The Texans are expected to be without one of their starting cornerbacks after a significant hamstring injury, according to multiple media reports.

Bradley Roby went down in the third quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs and did not return. 

NFL Ian Rapoport cited sources saying the injury “is considered significant” and that he’s likely to miss about a month. 

The Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson reported the hamstring injury is significant enough for Roby to miss the remainder of the month. 

The Texans were already without veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph due to a hamstring injury when Roby had to leave the game. 

That left opportunities for Lonnie Johnson Jr., Phillip Gaines and Keion Crossen, who all filled in respectably. 

Roby was signed to a one-year, $10 million deal in the offseason from Denver, replacing longtime Texans DB Kareem Jackson, who signed with the Broncos. 

Wilson of the Chronicle also reported Tytus Howard has a partially torn MCL, but no ACL tear and surgery is not expected.

When head coach Bill O'Brien was asked about injuried players Monday, he said they would be meeting to see where everyone is.
