Texans place Nico Collins on IR

Texans starting wide receiver Nico Collins’ season is over.

He was placed on injured reserve due to a foot injury that has sidelined him since a loss to the Cleveland Browns.

Collins has been working out on the side with trainers, but hasn’t been able to practice.

Collins has 37 catches for 481 yards and two scores on 66 targets.

A former third-round draft pick from Michigan, Collins flashed big-play potential during his second NFL season with his imposing 6-foot-4, 215-pound size and ability to make contested catches over smaller defenders.

He was limited to 10 games overall.

The Texans get veteran wide receiver Brandin Cooks back from a foot injury for Saturday’s game against the Tennessee Titans.

The Texans activated safety Grayland Arnold from injured reserve after he recovered from a quadriceps injury.

Turner has 29 career receptions for 414 yards and four touchdowns. He has played for the Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers and Las Vegas Raiders.

He played collegiately at Illinois where he caught 143 career passes for 1,804 yards and 10 touchdowns.
