 HOUSTON (AP) -Houston Texans defensive tackle Cedric Killings was taken off the field on a stretcher Sunday after a headfirst collision with Indianapolis receiver Roy Hall.
The 6-foot-3, 310-pound Killings, playing special teams, hit Hall on a block as Jerome Mathis was returning a kickoff in the second quarter. The Texans said Killings suffered a neck injury, but had feeling in his extremities. Killings was taken to a hospital.
Hall and Killings went down together and Hall walked slowly off the field with trainers helping him.
Killings lay motionless as trainers attended to him and a stretcher was wheeled onto the field. Coach Gary Kubiak watched medical personnel strap Killings to the stretcher as players from both sides watched intently.
The 30-year-old Killings was cut by the Texans on Sept. 1, then re-signed on Sept. 14 to add depth to the defensive line when Travis Johnson injured his ankle.
In the season opener, the Buffalo Bills lost tight end Kevin Everett to a life-threatening spinal cord injury. Everett, however, is making a strong recovery and doctors expect he'll be able to walk again.
Early in the second quarter Sunday, Houston running back Ahman Green left the game with a left knee injury.
Green, Houston's leading rusher, caught a short pass and was tackled after a 9-yard gain by Colts safety Bob Sanders. Green hopped up, but limped off the field as trainers attended to him on the sideline.
Green hobbled to a training table behind the bench as Kris Brown kicked a 33-yard field goal to put the Texans up 10-7.
On Wednesday, the Texans said Green was limited at practice with a knee injury.
Samkon Gado replaced Green on the Texans' next offensive series. Green sat on the bench with ice wrapped around his left knee.
