Horton, in the statement through the Texans, said, “I’m currently dealing with a personal health matter that will keep me away from the team for an indefinite period of time. I want to thank my family, my teammates and the entire Houston Texans organization for the support and care they have already provided me.

“I will provide updates from time to time, but my main focus right now is on my health and recovery,” he continued. “Thank you and God bless.”
