Houston Texans starting running back Lamar Miller was injured during Saturday's contest against the Dallas Cowboys and team officials feat he may have torn his ACL.

An MRI has been ordered to confirm the diagnosis.

Miller was seeing his first action of the preseason.  The injury happened in the first quarter.

Miller has been the Texans lead back since 2016.  Last season he played in 14 games and tallied 973 yards on 210 carries, scoring five touchdowns.

Houston traded for running back Duke Johnson earlier this month.
