Texans' secondary a primary concern

(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- The loss of cornerback A.J. Bouye to the Jacksonville Jaguars during free agency represented a mighty blow to the Houston Texans' defense.

Bouye emerged as one of the top corners in the NFL last season and was rewarded with a five-year, $67.5 million contract that included $26 million guaranteed.

The Texans' secondary, partly because of a sprained medial collateral ligament that has kept cornerback Kevin Johnson out for the past four games and because of the absence of Bouye's shutdown presence, has resulted in a revolving door at cornerback besides reliable veterans Johnathan Joseph and Kareem Jackson.
