Here is a look at the Houston Texans Wednesday injury report:
Did Not Participate
LB Neville Hewitt (Hamstring)
DT Maliek Collins (Chest)
WR Nico Collins (Groin)
RB Dameon Pierce (Chest / Shoulder)
WR Brandin Cooks (Wrist)
LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin (Groin)
G Justin McCray (Concussion)
WR Phillip Dorsett (Ankle)
DT Jaleel Johnson (Illness)
It would have been a welcoming sight to see starting running back Dameon Pierce and starting wide receivers Nico Collins and Brandin Cooks as full participants after being limited on Wednesday. Friday’s injury report should let us know more about their injury status.
Wide receiver Brandin Cooks practiced on a limited basis and could be available this weekend for Houston. Here is what Texans offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton had to say about Cooks:
“Brandin is a pro. He’ll be ready to go.”
Teams release updates on the injury report Wednesday-Friday, with Friday designating players as healthy, probable, questionable, doubtful or out. Then, 90 minutes before kickoff on Sunday, teams release their inactive lists, which may include players on the injury report.
