New England Patriots RB Danny Woodhead is heading to the locker room in the Divisional Round game against the Houston Texans. Woodhead appears to have suffered a left wrist injury on the Patriots' first offensive play of the game, a handoff for no yards.
Woodhead had 76 carries for 301 yards and four touchdowns in the regular season, adding 40 receptions for 446 yards and an additional three touchdowns. He's never been a workhorse back, but the Patriots value his versatility.
The Texans currently lead the game 3-0 after a huge opening kickoff return from Danieal Manning brought them all the way down to the 12 yard line. They failed to capitalize, however, settling for a chip shot field goal.
WEEI's Christopher Price is reporting Woodhead's return is questionable.
