The Houston Texans will get some key players back for their week three match-up against the New England Patriots.
With the Houston Texans ready to face off against the New England Patriots in about 48 hours, here are some updates on some of the walking wounded.
The Texans received some good news on Friday when it was revealed that wide receiver Bruce Ellington and tight end Stephen Anderson have both been cleared after suffering concussions during Houston’s week one loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
While Texans’s running back Alfred Blue is almost ready to go after suffering a high ankle sprain during training camp, he will not play against the Patriots. Even if he did, it would only be on special teams and not on offense.
Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien told reporters earlier in the week that Lamar Miller and D’Onta Foreman will continue to get the carries when Blue returns.
Here’s the official report for the Texans.
We do know that cornerback Kevin Johnson, wide receiver Will Fuller V, offensive guard Jeff Allen will not play against the Patriots.
Even with Blue listed as a questionable, I wouldn’t expect him to play.
When it comes to the Patriots, both wide receiver Chris Hogan and tight end Rob Gronkowski will be ready to go after getting banged up against the New Orleans Saints last week.
If the Texans can slow down Gronk they will greatly increase their chances of coming away with a win up in Foxboro.
