Houston Texans nose tackle Shaun Cody has broken ribs and a punctured lung, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Texans coach Gary Kubiak referred to Cody's injury in his Monday press conference as "rib issues."
However, it appears to be much more serious than that, though Cody has not been ruled out yet for this week.
