The Houston Texans are getting some key players back from injury this week.
The Houston Texans have been ravaged by injuries since early August.
The good news is that tight end Ryan Griffin is now out of the concussion protocol after suffering a concussion during their week one loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Texans definitly need Griffin back with starting tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz done for the season after suffering his second concussion against the Jaguars.
Fiedorowicz was placed on season-ending injured reserve because he also suffered a concussion during the preseason.
Texans’ running back Alfred Blue is now back at practice after suffering a high ankle sprain during training camp.
Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien says that Blue’s main role will be on special teams. So he clearly will not cut into the work loads of either Lamar Miller or rookie D’Onta Freeman, for you fantasy nerds.
Texans’ starting cornerback Jonathan Joseph was at practice on Wednesday after suffering a shoulder injury last week against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The good news is that O’Brien says Joseph will play against the New England Patriots this Sunday.
"“Will Fuller will not be available Sunday,” O’Brien said. “Will be available soon.”"
Hopefully soon means that Fuller will be back within the next week or two.
Update: Blue will not play this week, but wide receiver Bruce Ellington will.
