Texans safety Jalen Pitre spent Sunday night in a Baltimore hospital with a bruised lung.

He was scheduled to return to Houston with team trainers on Monday, per multiple reports.

Pitre, 24, exited Sunday’s season-opening 25-9 loss to the Ravens just before halftime.

He appeared to take a knee to his chest from Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Pitre started the game and recorded two tackles and one QB hit before departing.

The 2022 second-round pick led Houston in tackles (147) and interceptions (five) during his rookie season.
