Texans WR-RS Trindon Holliday will have to wait a year before his NFL debut — he will have surgery on a broken left thumb that will sideline him for the 2010 season.
Head coach Gary Kubiak announced after practice that Holliday would undergo surgery on Wednesday. The 5-foot-5 rookie out of LSU is the reigning NCAA champion in the 100-meter dash and he ran a 4.34 at the Combine.
Holliday joins RB Ben Tate as Texans rookies out for the year. Tate broke his ankle in the Texans' first preseason game.
In the Pro Football Weekly 2010 Draft Preview, Nolan Nawrocki said Holliday "only needs a sliver of daylight to take it the distance."
