Texans could lose Mario Williams for season

With the reinvention of the Texans defense under new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, Mario Williams was going to be the cornerstone with his new responsibilities as a hand-on-the-ground pass-rusher and a stand-up outside linebacker.

So far this season, Williams had been nasty, accumulating five sacks and helping the Texans to 3-1 start as Houston allowed 13 points or less in three of its four games. But after recording another sack Sunday against the Raiders on Sunday, Williams might have prematurely ended his season on the very next play.

That’s when he injured his pectoral muscle, and if, as some expect, it’s torn, the rest of Williams’ year is in doubt. According to the Houston Chronicle, Williams will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his injury.

Without Williams around on defense and without Andre Johnson around on an offense that was non-inspirational Sunday, the Texans allowed the Raiders to pull off the emotional victory. And if Williams is gone for a long period of time, how much will that affect the Texans defense? Who knows? At this point, we're not sure how bad the injury is.

"I'm not a doctor, so I don't know,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said after the game. “I hate to answer that right now in the state of mind I'm in, so let's see what happens."

Williams’ replacement, rookie Brooks Reed, played well, accumulating four tackles and two quarterback hurries. But when Williams left the game, it was also evident to the rest of the defense that a big void was missing.

"As the game is going on, you know, you start looking around and thinking, 'Where's Mario?'" safety Danieal Manning said. "I didn't know if he was OK, and I still don't know."
