With the Houston Texans arriving in West Virginia for training camp, players are getting their medical examinations prior to taking the field. It was not good news for two young players.
Defensive tackle Joel Heath and outside linebacker Dayon Pratt have both been placed on the active non-football injury list.
Heath played a progressively increasing role at defensive tackle in his rookie season. The Michigan State product wound up playing 237 snaps and did well enough to help mitigate fears of the loss of Vince Wilfork at nose tackle.
Pratt is an undrafted rookie for East Carolina. He is hoping to make a mark as a pass rusher and on special teams.
The team has yet to disclose the nature of the injury for either player.
