Chalk up another season ending injury to the Texans after their first day of contact training camp.

Alexander, who sat out last year for tearing his ACL, injured his knee in another spot and is likely gone for the year.


Alexander, who suffered a season-ending ACL tear last year, reinjured his same knee in a different spot during Sunday morning’s practice. Kubiak also expects him to miss the entire season.

“The surgery that he had held up fine,” Kubiak said. “He did not reinjure the knee in any shape or form from that standpoint. Basically, he cracked his kneecap on the same knee, so he will be done for the year.”

Kubiak noted that he will miss Alexander’s physical play and versatility, but he expects him to return to the gridiron in the future.

“He’s an excellent special teams player,” Kubiak said. “A very physical corner, I think he would have played well in our scheme, and I think he would have pushed for a spot on our team. That’s part of the game, you hate losing guys, but there’s two good kids right there that I think will make it back.”

The team re-signed Derrick Roberson from Rutger's, one of the UDFAs that were cut last week.
