Johnathan Joseph Misses Thursday's Practice Due To Groin Injury, Expected To Play Sunday

We have gone from no need to panic to the slightest of concerns, only because of the alternative mentioned.

All Pro cornerback Johnathan Joseph was
expected to practice today, but his groin was still sore. Joseph was the only Texan not to practice, aside from the recovering LeStar Jean. Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak does believe that Joseph will play on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

Do you want to know about the aforementioned mentioned alternative?
Per Kubiak, if Joseph cannot play then Alan Ball’s reps pick up and Brandon Harris slides into the dime cornerback role. Do not worry, if you cringed at the mention of Ball’s name then you are not alone.

Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips tried to ease nerves
by saying Ball had "two or three interceptions in practice today" and that they were confident in his ability to play. While I trust Wade, I remember seeing Ball struggle against second- and third-stringers. Joseph’s groin will be on the mind of every Texans fan as we head towards Sunday’s game.
