Rapoport says the injury is considered significant and Roby will certainly miss multiple games. Houston has a bye in Week 10 that hopefully will limit the amount of time it has to play without Roby.
Roby, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $6.95 million rookie contract when the Broncos picked up his fifth-year option.
Roby made a base salary of $8.526 million for the 2018 season and was allowed to leave as an unrestricted free agent by Denver. He signed a one-year, $10 million deal with the Texans after receiving interest from a number of teams.
In 2019, Roby has appeared in six games for the Texans and recorded 24 total tackles, one forced fumble, no interceptions and four pass defenses.
