Per Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union, Jaguars DE John Chick will not play on Sunday when the Jaguars travel to Reliant Stadium to play the Texans. Ganguli reports that Chick strained an oblique muscle against the Ravens on Monday night.
What's curious is that Chick didn't appear on the injury report until Thursday, despite the fact that he didn't practice on Wednesday. Ganguli called it an "oversight" on the injury report, but an oversight could be bad for the Jaguars as the NFL takes reporting injuries very seriously.
Chick has quickly become a fan favorite as a pass rusher, recording two sacks in the last three games. He has five tackles on the season.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports that Texans All-Pro WR Andre Johnson will not play for the Texans on Sunday either. That's huge news as Johnson is arguably the best player on the Texans and easily the biggest weapon for Texans QB Matt Schaub in the passing game.
