Gameday for the Houston Texans is around 24 hours away when they welcome the first-place Denver Broncos to Reliant Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

The game should be all Broncos, but with the 2-12 Texans playing for some pride, who knows what will happen with Matt Schaub more than likely making his final start for the Texans at Reliant Stadium.

One question mark for the Texans headed into Sunday’s game is the health of tight end Garrett Graham who missed last week’s 25-3 loss to the Indianapolis Colts with  an injury.

ESPN’s Tania Ganguli wrote about the health of Graham, who last week was replaced in the starting lineup by Ryan Griffin. Ganguli wrote:

"“Phillips has said prior that Graham’s situation this week mirrored last week. Graham was listed as questionable in Indianapolis, too, and didn’t play. He’s been dealing with a hamstring injury.”"

Our friends over at Just Blog Baby posted their second round mock draft. At No. 33 they have the Texans selecting La’el Colling, an offensive tackle from LSU.

They wrote:

"“Collins has been very impressive at LT thus far for LSU and adding him may provide more stability for this offense.”"

Andre Johnson is about to tie an NFL record for most 100-reception seasons.

The Houston Chronicle reported on their Ultimate Texans blog:

"“Andre Johnson needs one catch to give him a fifth 100-reception season, tying him with Denver’s Wes Welker for the most in NFL history.”"

Here is a To-Do list from Deepi Sidhu on the Houston Texans official web site. She wrote:

"“Putting the reins on Bronco receivers: What makes Denver such an offensive powerhouse is its abundance of weapons. The Broncos have four players with 8-plus receiving touchdowns this season.”"
