Jamison Out for the Season with Achilles Injury

In Sunday night’s crushing loss to the Green Bay Packers, the Houston Texans endured the loss of another defensive player, backup defensive end Tim Jamison.

Jamison was helped off the field in the first quarter with what appears to be a right Achilles injury and was out the remainder of the contest. Although Jamison has not been getting the snaps this season for the Texans defensive unit, the team needs every defensive contributor available after the season ending injury to inside linebacker and Texans defensive leader Brian Cushing.

In backing up J.J. Watt, Jamison has played in each of the Texans first six games in 2012, recording 3 tackles, 1 sack and a deflected pass. Other than that, Jamison has been pretty quiet for the Texans when he gets in, as has the rest of the defensive front besides Watt. Jamison was great depth for the Texans and losing him does not help the team moving forward.

Jamison was given a contract extension before the season started to keep him in Houston for two more seasons, instead of giving him a chance to hit the open market.

The team will be making a corresponding move within the coming days to replace Jamison.
