The Houston Texas are prepping for a big divisional matchup against the Tennessee Titans in Week 8, and they now probably think they have a real opportunity to win with the Titans starting rookie QB Malik Willis.

Nico Collins Injury Update

However, we now know Houston will officially be without its No. 2 wideout Nico Collins, who has been ruled out due to a groin injury.

Collins has had a solid season thus far opposite of Brandon Cooks. In six games, Collins has 18 catches for 305 yards, though he has failed to find the end zone yet. In Collins' absence you can expect Brandon Cooks, Chris Moore and Phillip Dorsett to pick up his targets, although Cooks is questionable himself.

The Texans are 1-point home favorites in Week 8 against the Titans, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
