Getting Greg Mancz back is huge for the Houston Texans going forward.
The Houston Texans are certainly getting healthier with each passing week.
On Wednesday, guard Greg Mancz returned to practice after missing this past Sunday’s win over the Tennessee Titans with a knee injury.
While Mancz did say he’s feeling better, he wouldn’t say whether or not he’ll play this Sunday night against the undefeated 4-0 Kansas City Chiefs, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
The good news is that Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien says Mancz could play this week. So it sounds like his availability will depend on how his knee holds up during practice this week.
With the Chiefs’ defense already racking up 11 sacks through the first four weeks of the season, they will need Mancz’s help in order to fortify their offensive line.
The only Texans’ starter that will definitely miss this Sunday’s game is cornerback Kevin Johnson, who be out for another two weeks after going down with a knee injury against the Cincinnati Bengals in week two.
Update: Johnson and Kyle Fuller were held out of practice.

Texans made two roster moves.
There was a report on Tuesday that running back Tyler Ervin would be placed on injured reserve and Houston would sign free agent safety Marcus Cromartie.
As you can see below, the moves are now official, according to the Texans.
I’m kind of surprised that the Texans added another safety with Andre Hal, Corey Moore and Marcus Gilchrist all playing pretty well this season.
Comment below and give us your thoughts on Mancz possibly playing this week against the Chiefs.
