Noah Brown (back) sidelined for Texans first Wild Card practice

Houston Texans wide receiver Noah Brown (back) did not practice on Tuesday for the Wild Card Game versus the Cleveland Browns.

What It Means:

Brown and Robert Woods (hip) both remained out after missing last week's game against the Indianapolis Colts. If either receiver is unable to play on Saturday against the Browns, there will be more work for John Metchie and Xavier Hutchinson behind Nico Collins.

numberFire's models project Brown for 5.4 targets, 3.0 receptions, and 43.1 yards. The Browns allowed the fourth-fewest FanDuel points to wide receivers this season and their pass defense finished first in our opponent-adjusted efficiency rankings.
