Houston Texans Week 17 injury report
By Jair Lopez
The Houston Texans released their injury report and game status report for Week 17.
The Houston Texans will host the Jacksonville Jaguars in NRG Stadium as the Texans are fighting to maintain a home-field advantage in the wild-card round of the playoffs and continue to hold out for the opportunity to get a bye week with a defeat of the New England Patriots against the New York Jets. With the Texans winning on Sunday, they would secure at worst the third seed and win the AFC South for the third time in five seasons since head coach Bill O’Brien was brought in 2014.
All of the Texans players have practiced to a certain extent, wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins (ankle), Keke Coutee (hamstring), cornerback Johnathan Joseph (neck), and defensive lineman J.J. Watt (knee), and Brandon Dunn (ankle) were all limited in practice according to the injury report.
Wide receiver DeAndre Carter (knee), defensive lineman Christian Covington (knee), inside linebackers Benardrick McKinney (foot), Dylan Cole (wrist), right guard Zach Fulton (hand), left guard Senio Kelemete (elbow/rib), offensive lineman Greg Mancz (knee), running back Lamar Miller (ankle), quarterback Joe Webb III (ankle), defensive backs Kareem Jackson (knee), Andre Hal (ankle), Mike Tyson (concussion) and Justin Reid (shoulder/wrist) were all full participants in practice towards the end of the week.
Miller is expected to be ready to go when the Texans play the Jaguars in Week 17 after missing last week due to an ankle injury. Although Coutee, Joseph, and Dunn are all listed as questionable for the last game of the regular season.
