Today is Wednesday. Tomorrow is Thursday. Soon it will be Sunday. After practice today, news came out that is very important to the Texans’ game against the New England Patriots this Sunday. With the amount of injuries and dents in the Texans’ depth chart, there sure is a lot of it.

Johnathan Joseph is going to play this Sunday. He hurt his shoulder last Thursday against the Bengals and his recovery is in the right direction. This is integral with Kevin Johnson being out for the next four to six weeks.

Bruce Ellington, Chris Clark, Ryan Griffin, and Marcus Burley all had a wide variety of injuries, but were full participants in practice today.

Expect all of them to be back on the field this Sunday.

Everyone’s favorite running back, Alfred Blue, may play on Sunday. If he does, it will be primarily on special teams with Lamar Miller and D’Onta Foreman getting 100% of the carries at RB.

The limited participants today were: Xavier Su’a-Filo, J.J. Watt, Stephen Anderson, Alfred Blue, and Johnathan Joseph.

A tweet told me Watt’s broken digit hasn’t affected his play.

There are two players already not expected to suit up on Sunday.

Will Fuller V has practiced this week, but is still out after landing on his collarbone this preseason. He may be back next week against the Titans. He may not. Regardless, Fuller is expected to play soon.

Jeff Allen is still not practicing with an ankle injury, and the Texans are better for it. Greg Mancz will continue to start at right guard.

After last week’s injury-ravaged roster, things look significantly better for the Texans this week.
