The Houston Texans have announced that they'e placed tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz on season ending injured reserve after suffering a concussion during this past Sunday's loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

According to Sarah Barshop of ESPN, head coach Bill O'Brien stated on Monday that each of these players will likely be out for Thursday's tilt in Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

There is a five-step process to be cleared from the concussion protocol, including a step that says a player must return to practice as a full participant. He was activated Tuesday and will start against the Texans at Paul Brown Stadium on Thursday night.

The Texans are really in a tough spot when it comes to their tight ends since Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson also each went down with a concussion against the Jags.
