Wade Phillips Has Surgery, In Stable Condition; Updates On Andre Johnson And Joel Dreessen

The team issued a statement declaring that Wade underwent a procedure on his kidney and gallbladder today, declaring he "had completed the surgery and was in stable condition." Here's wishing a speedy recovery to the best acquisition any team made this past offseason.

In that same link, we learn that Andre Johnson and Joel Dreessen missed practice today. Kubes made it sound like one of 'em will play on Sunday, but the other won't. Who's who? You'll have to jump to find out.

Concerning Andre Johnson...

“Obviously, he’d have to make a lot of improvement, but the fact that we have him out here this week means that we’re getting closer to him being on the field,” Kubiak said. “I would not expect him to practice tomorrow, probably give you a decision after that, but we’re heading in the right direction.”

On Joel Dreessen...

“His knee is still swollen,” Kubiak said. “Joel doesn’t need to practice to play, so that was the decision that we made to make sure that we get the swelling down before Sunday, but I would expect him to be there.”
