The Texans haven’t faced a cataclysmic injury yet this season. Will Fuller V tearing his ACL is the closes they’ve gotten, but other than that, they’ve managed to stay pretty healthy, keeping their premier players and losing some helpful and good ones along the way.
Aaron Colvin has been out for five games with a sprained ankle. Johnathan Joseph missed last week after being rolled up on by Jadeveon Clowney. The Texans are seeing more Shareece Wright and Natrell Jamerson than they ever though they would. The good news is both Colvin and Joseph will try to make it back on the field after the bye.

Keke Coutee is the team’s slot receiver and third most productive receiver. He hasn’t been seen since re-injuring his hamstring against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Unlike Joseph and Colvin, we don’t know when Coutee will be back out there. He’s doing what he should do, and what we all should do more often, take it day by day. Hopefully he’s 100% soon and he’s back on the field by December at the latest.

Lastly, the Texans are still using Alfred Blue as their second running back. He’s averaging 3.2 yards a carry. The Texans could use Foreman, or anyone to play the RB2 role. However, nothing is new about Foreman other than the usual. He’s trending upwards. He’s hoping to get back out there soon. Maybe one day he will, hopefully it’s soon.
Bill O’Brien had this to say regarding his activation:
“I don’t know. We’re still talking about that. I know he’s trending upwards. He’s worked very hard. I don’t know if it’s something we’re going to do right now. I’m not sure about that right now.”
