The Houston Texans just can't catch a break in 2020. Running back David Johnson has been one of the team's bright spots in 2020, but he suffered a concussion in Week 9.

Not practicing on Wednesday, it sounds like Johnson may not be available for the Texans' Week 10 matchup against the Cleveland Browns.

Through seven full games, Johnson had averaged 79 yards from scrimmage on 14.4 rush attempts and 2.3 receptions per game. He only saw two carries before being knocked out of the game last week, and with David Johnson on the shelf this becomes Duke Johnson's backfield instead.

Duke racked up 16 carries and 4 receptions in a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, and no other Texans RB played more than 5 snaps.

Playing on the road with their starting RB iffy to play, FanDuel Sportsbook has the Texans as 3-point underdogs against the Browns on Sunday.
