The Texans begin their post-J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus season today, against the Cleveland Browns. The Browns are 0-5 and just switched from DeShone Kizer to Kevin Hogan at quarterback, but that doesn’t mean they’ll roll over.

The training staff for the Houston Texans continue to be some of the busiest people on Kirby. A total of 17 players made the injury report this week, the most so far. ILB Ben Heeney (knee), CB Kevin Johnson (knee), S Corey Moore (concussion), and RB Jordan Todman (calf) have already been ruled out. C Greg Mancz (knee), and ILB Benardick McKiney (hip) are questionable. Other Texans who have received extra treatment include OLB/DE Jadeveon Clowney (knee), CB Johnathan Joseph (groin), CB Marcus Burley (knee), ILB Dylan Cole (ankle), RB D’Onta Foreman (hip), G Kyle Fuller (hamstring), CB Kareem Jackson (hamstring), OLB Brennan Scarlett (shoulder), G Xavier Su’a-Filo (knee), WR Chris Thompson (wrist), and LS Jon Weeks (knee).

Hue Jackson’s Browns haven’t ruled anyone out yet. LB James Burgess (knee) is doubtful, while WR Kenny Britt (knee/groin), OL Shon Coleman (knee), and OL JC Tretter (knee) are questionable. Other Browns who were in the training room this week are LB B.J. Bello (neck), DL Myles Garrett (ankle), DL Jamie Meder (toe), DB Jamar Taylor (ribs), WR Sammie Coates (hamstring), LB Jamie Collins (concussion), DL Danny Shelton (calf), TE Randall Telfer (knee), OL Joe Thomas (knee), and OL Kevin Zeitler (thumb).
