Texans worried TE Owen Daniels might miss 'a few weeks'

Texans tight end Owen Daniels @owendaniels underwent a couple of MRIs on Monday to find out the source of his leg soreness. The team hasn't made the test results public, but according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans are "worried" that Daniels' injury -- officially being labeled a fibula injury -- could "cause him to miss a few weeks." Daniels has 24 catches for 252 yards and three touchdowns on the year.

Fantasy Analysis:

Garrett Graham @gra89ham, who also has three touchdowns in his first five games, would see a jump in snaps if Daniels needs some time off. He looks like a boom-or-bust starter if you are in a pinch and need a TE for Week 6. The Texans host the Rams. Losing Daniels hurt Matt Schaub @MSchaub8 and an offense that is already short on dependable receivers.
