Houston Texans cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. suffered a hamstring injury in Wednesday's practice, sources told ESPN's DJ Bien-Aime.

Stingley will miss Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars but could miss more contests as his recovery timeline remains undetermined, Bien-Aime adds.

The 22-year-old started the season's first two games, recording nine tackles.

Injuries have plagued the Texans' secondary early in the 2023 campaign. Safety Jimmie Ward missed the first two games with a hip injury but returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday. Defensive back Jalen Pitre missed the Week 2 loss to the Indianapolis Colts with a chest injury.

After getting drafted third overall in 2022, hamstring troubles limited Stingley to nine games in his rookie season.
