Fantasy Impact:

Tunsil was hopeful that he would be able to play through the injury but will wind up getting the surgery. He is expected to be sidelined for four weeks after injuring the thumb against the New England Patriots. Geron Christian will likely draw the start in Tunsil's absence. Tunsil being sidelined is bad news for Brandin Cooks, Mark Ingram, and the entire Texans offense.
