It's unclear how serious the injury suffered this morning by Texans center Chris Myers is, and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, didn't immediately return an e-mail.

But coach Gary Kubiak didn't sound happy about the practice in which Myers got hurt.

"He got rolled up," Kubiak said according to the team's transcript. "We were pretty sloppy this morning as a team, and we were on the play and the back got pushed into him and he got rolled up. So we'll sit here and hope for the best, go get a look at it."

More from Kubiak:

On that being a part of camp but still hating it: "Oh, absolutely. You come out here every day and you want every guy healthy. The key to staying healthy is keeping people off the ground and practicing fast, and we didn't do that today. We were sloppy as a football team."

On what in particular was sloppy in practice: "Everything was. We weren't very good today, not very good. We didn't get better today."

On another injury, to cornerback Jacques Reeves: "I don't know, either, with him. He got tied up there in a pass route. We'll send him in and do an X-ray. We'll see. I'll have an answer for you guys this afternoon."

The Chronicle's camp insider has a picture that makes it appear Reeves hurt his right leg or foot.

At center, backups Chris White and rookie Antoine Caldwell are in line to take snaps for however long Myers is out and guard Mike Brisiel can also shift over.
