Houston Texans Injury News: Andre Hal Is Back At Practice, Zach Fulton’s Ankle Hurts

One last update before the weekend begins.

Hell, yes. Great news.

Andre Hal is back on the practice field after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma right before the season started. He’s still on the Non-Football Illness list. But maybe, just maybe, he can get back onto the field and add even more fluidity and talent to a Texans’ secondary that desperately needs it.

That’s the great news that extends past the I like football and the Houston Texans, I want to watch Hal play, and the Texans be good part of it.

The bad news is that Zach Fulton didn’t participate in practice today. He has an ankle injury. In his place will be the Texans’ third interior offensive linemen, Greg Mancz. Although he’s undersized, Mancz is a good outside zone blocker and pass blocker. Even if Fulton does’t play against the Jaguars, Houston should still survive. I hope so at least.

The last bit of news probably doesn’t mean anything at all. It’s probably just a precaution.

DeAndre Hopkins didn’t practice yesterday because of a foot injury. He better play. Jalen Ramsey versus Hopkins happens only twice a year.

This can’t be taken away from us.
