Houston Texans linebacker Dylan Cole will miss the rest of the season. He suffered a torn ACL in his right leg on Thursday Night Football against the Indianapolis Colts.
He has already been placed on injured reserve, as he will miss the final weeks of the season.
He suffered the injury on a kickoff where he was not hit when he went down with his injury. After he went down with his injury, the team’s medical staff came to his aid.
Cole would eventually need help to get off of the field.
The 25-year-old undrafted free agent appeared in 11 games before his injury on Thursday night. He had nine tackles, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and one pass deflection.
This is the third straight season he has had to deal with an injury to begin his career. In 2018, he suffered a dislocated wrist that ultimately needed surgery.
He appeared in eight games on the season. Cole had 13 tackles, including one tackle for a loss and three pass deflections.
As a rookie in 2017, he also battled a hamstring injury. He appeared in 12 games, including one start – his lone start in the NFL.
He also had 25 tackles, including four tackles for a loss and two quarterback hits. He also had 1.0 sacks, two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown; and three pass deflections.
