The Houston Texans final injury report for week four is out and the good news is that D.J. Reader is ready to go.
The Houston Texans released their final week four injury report on Friday, ahead of Sunday’s divisional match-up against the Tennessee Titans.
The good news is that defensive tackle D.J. Reader fully practiced on Friday after missing Wednesday’s session and being limited on Thursday.
I have Reader as my x-factor for this week’s game against a team like the Titans who love to run the football.
Texans’ star defensive lineman J.J. Watt was also back at practice on Friday after taking a day off on Thursday. He will be ready to go as he continues to play with an injured finger.
The only player on the Texans’ injury report that’s listed as questionable is cornerback Marcus Burley.
Two players that have been ruled out are offensive lineman Greg Mancz (knee) and cornerback Kevin Johnson (knee).
The Texans are certainly missing Johnson after he went down in week two. Their secondary struggled a lot against the New England Patriots last week. They gave up big plays all afternoon up in Foxboro. Johnson won’t be back for a few more weeks.
Houston will also miss Mancz, who’s been a big help as an offensive guard after playing center last season.
With second-year wide receiver Will Fuller fully practicing on Friday, it looks like he will make his 2017 season debut on Sunday.
