The injured shoulder of Houston Texans’ cornerback Jonathan Joseph’s held up against the New England Patriots.

It’s safe to say that the Houston Texans’ secondary is a big concern after they gave up five touchdowns against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots this past Sunday.

One piece of good news is that Texans’ starting cornerback Jonathan Joseph didn’t suffer any setbacks after injuring his shoulder against the Cincinnati Bengals the week before.

Joseph told the Houston Chronicle that the training staff did a great job when it comes to making sure he was ready to play.

"“I was good to go,” Joseph said. “The training staff did a good job of getting me ready for the game.”"

I’m not sure how the Texans are going to fix their issues at the backend of their defense, but the fact that Joseph came away from Sunday’s loss without suffering a setback is great news as they prepare to face off against a division foe in the Tennessee Titans this coming Sunday.

Hopefully safeties Andre Hal, Marcus Gilcrhist and Corey Moore can do more to make sure they don’t give up too many yards through the air.

The good news for the Texans is that the Tennessee Titans are a run-first team, which plays right into their strength as a defense..
