Before their game against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 7, the Houston Texans, who have had a difficult start to the 2022 season, appear to have learned more terrible news about one of their top pass rushers, Jonathan Greenard.
Jonathan Greenard injury update
Greenard had an ankle injury during the Texans’ Week 4 game against the Los Angeles Chargers, and hasn’t played since. After Houston’s bye week in Week 6, Greenard was set to return for their game in Week 7. However, he ended up hurting his calf during practise this week. Greenard is now anticipated to be sidelined for the following four to six weeks, suggesting that it appeared to be significant enough to necessitate a trip to the injured reserve.

Jonathan Greenard, the defensive end who leads the Texans in pass rushes, has injured his calf and will now be placed on injured reserve. Greenard is anticipated to return within 4-6 weeks.
The Texans are devastated by this loss since Greenard had a significant impact early in the season. Although he has only recorded 1.5 sacks so far this season, the defence has looked much better with him in it. The Texans already have a lengthy list of problems, and losing him for at least the next four games won’t help.
Greenard’s absence suggests that Rasheem Green will step in for the time being. Green has played well for the Texans so far this season, recording 2.5 sacks through the team’s first four games. In order to prevent the Texans’ situation from getting worse while Greenard is out injured, he will need to continue producing at this level going forward.
