Darryl Sharpton won’t travel with Texans to San Diego

Darryl Sharpton won’t travel with the Texans to San Diego and is still dealing with concussion symptoms.

The third-year linebacker played in seven games last year, starting five. He’ll join starting defensive end Antonio Smith as Texans who are officially out for a season-opener Monday against the Chargers. Safety Ed Reed is a game-time decision but won’t start.

“It’s disappointing for Darryl because he’s had a really good camp and everything was going fine and he has this issue,” coach Gary Kubiak said Saturday at Reliant Stadium. “But we trust Darryl. He’s found a way when he’s healthy to really help this team. He’s a good football player and I don’t see this year being any different. I wish he was going to be there Monday night but hopefully this is a minor setback and he’s there for the next 15 (games).”
