Noah Brown (back) out again Wednesday for Texans

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

What It Means:

Robert Woods (hip) returned to practice on Wednesday, but Brown remained out. If Brown is unavailable on Saturday against the Browns, there will be more work for John Metchie and Xavier Hutchinson behind Nico Collins and Woods.

numberFire's models project Brown for 5.4 targets, 3.1 receptions, and 43.7 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.
