Derek Newton, the Houston Texans starting right tackle, left the game against the Denver Broncos on Monday night. He left in the first quarter of Monday Night Football.

An air cast was put on both of his legs, according to ESPN’s broadcast. Duane Brown, another Texans tackle, had to help the training staff to get Newton off the field and on the cart.

Newton had started 56 straight starts before missing last week’s game. He was replaced by Chris Clark.

Clark will have to try to guard Broncos All-Pro Von Miller the rest of the game.

Newton had his legs tangle with Miller on the third down play. Newton was down for several minutes before being removed from the field.

The Texans took a 3-0 lead on fourth down.
