HOUSTON (AP) - Houston's Demaryius Thomas was carted off the field in the fourth quarter after injuring his right leg. The CBS broadcasting crew said it was an Achilles injury.
Thomas was not hit on the play. He turned to make a block after Deshaun Watson's pass sailed over his head to DeAndre Hopkins.
Thomas went down to the ground and players from both teams walked over to the cart to comfort the distraught Thomas, who was a terrific midseason pickup from the Denver Broncos.
Earlier this month, Thomas' former teammate Emmanuel Sanders ruptured his right Achilles tendon at practice.
