Daniels is being placed on injured reserve with the designation for return, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Under NFL rules, that means Daniels has to miss at least the next eight weeks.
So the soonest we could see Daniels on the field again is Houston’s Week 14 game on Thursday, December 5, at Jacksonville. Considering the way the Texans have been playing lately, it’s entirely possible that by Week 14, Houston will be out of the playoff hunt.
