Texans lose Pitts for season
Pitts was injured Sunday against the Titans and underwent microfracture surgery on Wednesday. He will be placed on injured reserve.
Pitts was drafted in the second round in 2002. When Kasey Studdard starts in place of Pitts on Sunday, it will end Pitts' franchise-record streak of 114 straight starts.
