Injury and roster news for the week as the Texans get ready to play Cleveland.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Houston Texans Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

Dang, it’s already Wednesday. Monday feels so long ago. Here we are. And with it comes injury and roster news as the Texans quickly shuffle onwards to hosting the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

First things first: D’Onta Foreman is practicing but still isn’t ready to play yet. The Texans’ second year running back, who tore his Achilles a year ago, still hasn’t made it back to the point that he’s ready for game action. Unfortunately, it’s going to be another week of Alfred Blue getting 13 carries for 40 yards.

On a positive note, everyone’s favorite scrappy inside linebacker will be back this week. Dylan Cole has been activated and Josh Keyes has been released to make room for him. Cole went to the shop to repair a dislocated wrist and had arthroscopic knee surgery during his stay at the doctor’s office. Cole is back just in time to play Cleveland. Sadly, DeShone Kizer and Kevin Hogan aren’t around to play musical chairs while Hue Jackson refuses to stop the CD from spinning.

Keke Coutee left Monday’s game with a hamstring injury. That same vile piece of soft issue that has been hampering him all year long. He’s trending to play this Sunday, but he still may not. For insurance purposes, the Texans worked out former Jets wide receiver Devin Smith.

That’s all we got for now. All that’s left to do is wait around for Sunday to get here.
