Keep getting healthy, GG. - Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE
The Texans and Patriots are both looking relatively healthy ahead of their Sunday afternoon matchup in Foxborough. Most importantly for the Texans, signs are promising that TE Garrett Graham will be cleared to play.
Your Houston Texans are set to travel up to Foxborough to take on the New England Patriots in the final game of the NFL's Divisional Round. Heading into that game, it appears both the Texans and Patriots are relatively healthy.
For the Texans, the only player who completely sat out of practice on Wednesday, Alan Ball, returned to practice on Thursday, though he was limited with a foot injury. Most players practiced fully, with an exception of a few, including tight end Owen Daniels and guard Antoine Caldwell. Of greatest importance to the Texans and their fans is the great news that Garrett Graham was a full participant in practice on Thursday. Given the concerns about his status for Sunday's game, this has to be considered a positive step for Graham and the Texans.
For the Patriots, it seems that half the team is listed on the injury report. Everyone on the injury report practiced Thursday, though they were all limited. Those players include tight ends Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski, wide receiver Wes Welker, and linebackers Jerod Mayo and Brandon Spikes. None of these players have been ruled out for Sunday's game.
