The Houston Texans offense didn’t look so good in the season opener, but C.J. Stroud could have a prime reinforcement for the second game of the campaign.

According to a report by ProFootballTalk, WR John Metchie could finally make his NFL debut on Sunday when they face the Indianapolis Colts.

Metchie was forced to miss his entire rookie season after being diagnosed with leukemia.

He was able to overcome that life-changing situation and was cleared to return, and he had drawn rave reviews throughout the course of training camp.

Metchie even played in the preseason before suffering a hamstring injury during practice, so he couldn’t be on the field for Week 1’s matchup vs. the Baltimore Ravens.

He practiced again on Wednesday, and with the Texans placing Noah Brown on Injured Reserve (IR) earlier this week, it all points out at Metchie finally getting the nod.

Needless to say, this is going to be quite an emotional moment for him, his teammates, and even the fan base.

He’s had to overcome so much to get to this point, and this is just the beginning of what could end up being a very promising career.

Metchie and C.J. Stroud seemingly developed strong chemistry during training camp and the preseason, and he could find himself being the No. 1 weapon in the passing game right away.

It’ll be a while before the Texans are ready to compete, but Metchie has already won the most important game of his life.
