The Houston Texans released their injury report and game status report ahead of their Wild Card game against the Indianapolis Colts.
The Houston Texans posted their injury report for their first round of the playoffs against the Indianapolis Colts. Rookie wide receiver Keke Coutee and running back/special teams contributor Gregory Howell are listed as questionable for against the Colts due to hamstring injuries. Coutee is considered to be a game-time decision, but this is the first time the whole season that he has been a full participant in practice since he has had issues with his hamstring since the preseason.
Running back D’Onta Foreman could be active if Howell is unable to go, they have different roles within the team, but Foreman could be wearing his game gear with the Texans normally bringing a minimum of three running backs on game day. Howell has been a valuable contributor for the Texans special teams and he is second on the team with nine tackles. Foreman has been a healthy scratch for the last three of the four games since he was activated from the PUP list.
Inside linebackers Benardrick McKinney (heel), Dylan Cole (wrist), right guard Zach Fulton (hand), left guard Senio Kelemete (knee/rib), defensive lineman Brandon Dunn (ankle), defensive backs Jonathan Joseph (neck), Andre Hal (ankle) and Justin Reid (wrist) were all full participants in practice towards the end of the week.
Defensive end J.J. Watt (knee) and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) were both limited in practice, but they are expected to be ready to play against the Colts. Safety Mike Tyson who didn’t practice early this week was placed on IR with knee and ankle injury, safety A.J. Hendy was signed off the Los Angeles Chargers practice squad and into the Texans active roster.
