NFL: Texans C Justin Britt moved to non-football illness list
The Houston Texans placed starting center Justin Britt on the reserve/non-football illness list Tuesday.
Britt missed Houston’s Week 2 loss to the Denver Broncos. Coach Lovie Smith had told reporters Britt was away from the team due to “personal reasons.”
The 31-year-old is in his eighth season and his second with the Texans after spending his first six with the Seattle Seahawks (2014-19). A former second-round pick, Britt has primarily played center after starting out as a tackle for Seattle.
Houston also placed Kevin Pierre-Louis on injured reserve. The veteran linebacker was carted off during the Broncos game with a groin injury. He will have to miss a minimum of four games before being eligible to return.
