NFL Week 2: Amobi Okoye Game-Time Decision

Defensive tackle Amobi Okoye will be a game-time decision when the Houston Texans square off against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field on Sunday. Okoye was limited in practice on Friday, but according to head coach Gary Kubiak, today’s sessions weren’t very physical to begin with.

“He’s feeling better,” Kubiak told reporters of Okoye after practice Friday. “He did what we did today, but we weren’t very physical today.”

Kubiak said Okoye wore a boot Thursday as a precautionary measure.

“He tweaked his ankle, it swelled so we tried to get him off of it,” Kubiak said.

Rookie Earl Mitchell will see the field on Sunday even if Okoye is able to take some snaps. But if Okoye can’t go against the Redskins, Mitchell is expected to be ready to play extensively and productively:

“Earl has done some good stuff,” Kubiak said. “He hasn’t played extensively, all the plays that Amobi played last week. We had to move some guys around, but he’s a young kid who has shown some promise and if he gets an opportunity we’ll see.”
