Texans CB Brice McCain has been diagnosed with a broken foot, and will be sidelined for roughly six weeks.
The Texans' slot corner underwent surgery on Monday. In theory, McCain could return if the Texans make a deep playoff run, but he's almost certainly played his final snap of football this season. With Johnathan Joseph (hamstring) still banged up, McCain's injury leaves Houston perilously thin at corner. Brandon Harris will be forced to start in Week 14 if Joseph isn't ready. A former sixth-round pick, McCain is in the final year of his rookie contract.
