The injury picture for the Houston Texans is coming into focus for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

No surprise there. By all accounts, Foster is progressing. Decent to good chance he makes his return next week against the Falcons, which I'll gladly take after initial reports on the severity of Foster's injury.

That's big. While Nuk's status is still subject to change up until inactives are announced 90 minutes before kickoff, the idea that he's more likely than not to play on Sunday has to be a big relief for the Texans' offense.
