Report: Lamar Miller confirmed to have torn ACL

The Houston Texans will not have their workhorse running back in 2019.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, an MRI confirmed that running back Lamar Miller has a torn ACL, which will end his season before it has even started.

This one definitely hurts for the Texans. Miller was set to be the lead back, just as he has been since joining Houston in 2016. He suffered the injury during Saturday’s preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys.

The 28-year-old rushed for a total of 2,934 yards over his three seasons with the Texans. His absence opens the door for recently-acquired Duke Johnson, and the former Cleveland Brown will likely see the bulk of the action in the backfield with Miller sidelined.
