One Day Later: What Now With No Tank Dell?
How can the Texans handle Tank Dell's absence?
Tank Dell is going to miss the rest of the season due to his leg injury. DeMeco Ryans announced he is done for the season.
The rookie wideout has been electric. He’s the favorite target of C.J. Stroud and despite his size, Dell was capable of doing it all. He played inside and outside and caught short passes and bombs.
There is no replacing Tank Dell. There isn’t someone who replicates what Dell does on the Texans roster and there certainly doesn’t exist a player like Dell in free agency.
A lot of offense in the NFL is straining opposing defenses. Where can you create a stress point that allows other things to work for your offense? Bobby Slowik has done that pretty well over the course of the season but he loses one of his best chess pieces in trying to accomplish that feat.
