Texans Getting Healthy in Time for Postseason



The Houston Texans hope to get linebacker Brooks Reed back this week after he didn’t play against the Indianapolis Colts because of a groin injury, but he did return to practice on Tuesday and will likely be ready to play Saturday.

Tight end Owen Daniels has been bothered by a hamstring injury, but hasn’t missed any games, and head coach Gary Kubiak says the team is being as cautious as possbile with their Pro Bowl TE:

He’s had some nicks, had his back issue. He had some hamstring issue. He’s missed a lot of practice for all the right reasons. We’re trying to get him to game day.

We’ve got to get him more involved with what we’re doing. He’s holding up. It’s just that time of year, been through a lot of things where some people you’re just trying to get to the next Sunday, or the next Saturday in this case, so they can help your team.

Daniels is the teams’ second leading receiver with 62 receptions on 103 targets for 716 yards (11.5 avg) and six touchdowns.

The Texans will also be down a starting linebacker for this weekend’s playoff game, as the team placed Darryl Sharpton on IR and he is now done for the season after suffering a hip injury in Sunday’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Cornerback Alan Ball, who missed much of the last month with a foot injury, returned to practice on Tuesday and Kubiak said he would likely play if he practiced the rest of the week without any setbacks.
