Report: DeVier Posey tears Achilles

ESPN.com news services

Houston Texans wide receiver DeVier Posey suffered a torn Achilles tendon during the team's 41-28 loss to the New England Patriots in an AFC divisional-round game on Sunday, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Posey suffered the injury in the final moments of the game, according to the newspaper. It soured a strong performance for the rookie out of Ohio State, who had three catches for 46 yards and a touchdown in the loss.

The scoring catch -- an acrobatic grab that was overturned by replay after he originally was ruled out of bounds -- was the first of Posey's career. It cut the Texans' deficit to 38-20 with 11:35 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Posey finished the regular season with six catches for 87 yards.

There was no immediate timetable for his recovery.
