Schaub Hospitalized Overnight, Misses Practice, Expected Back Tomorrow

Only two real surprises on the injury report today. Texans quarterback Matt Schaub had his bursa sac drained in his knee Tuesday night and was hopsitalized after the procedure today. Most players would probably miss a game after the procedure, but given how important the quarterback position is to NFL teams and how important Schaub in particular is to the slim odds that the Texans will make the playoffs, expect to see him practicing tomorrow. Sorry if that goes against your injury-prone ideal of him.

On the other side of the spectrum: someone who actually is injury prone, Xavier Adibi, practiced in full for the first time since…I can’t remember. Probably sometime before Brian Cushing came back. So if the Texans need someone to be horrendous in pass coverage and tackle with the full force of mediocrity, they should have him back on the bench.

Here’s the whole list, via Scurfield:

Texans

TE Owen Daniels (hamstring), WR Andre Johnson (ankle), DE Jesse Nading (knee), QB Matt Schaub (knee)

Limited Participation in Practice
P Matt Turk (hip), DE Mario Williams (groin)

Week 10 Texans Injury Report: Barber To IR With Knee Injury Suffered In Practice

We go again to our pal Nick Scurfield, who has all the news you want to know

Texans
Out
S Dominique Barber (knee)

Did Not Participate in Practice
LB Xavier Adibi (hamstring), TE Owen Daniels (hamstring), WR Andre Johnson (ankle)

Limited Participation in Practice
DT Shaun Cody (knee), DE Jesse Nading (ankle), CB Glover Quin (neck), DE Mario Williams (groin)

Full Participation in Practice
DE Mark Anderson (arm), LB Kevin Bentley (knee), G Mike Brisiel (back), TE Garrett Graham (shoulder), LB Stanford Keglar (thigh), DT Earl Mitchell (ankle), CB Karl Paymah (wrist), QB Matt Schaub (ribs)

Jaguars

Did Not Participate in Practice
DT Tyson Alualu (knee)

Limited Participation in Practice
FB Greg Jones (ankle), DE Aaron Kampman (knee), DE Jeremy Mincey (hand)

Full Participation in Practice
LB Daryl Smith (back)

Kampman injured his knee in practice, and went to get a scope, which could make this the third straight week the Texans have gotten luck on the opponent’s injury front. Alualu’s rode the bikes today.

No news on the Daniels front, he again didn’t practice. Johnson and Schaub should be good to go. Barber injured his knee in practice and it swelled up enough to make the Texans put him on IR. New arrival Jason Allen is his roster replacement. Gary Kubiak said that losing Barber would put tremendous strain on special teams.

Week 9 Texans Injury Report: Four Chargers, Including Antonio Gates, Doubtful

Rotoworld's Evan Silva notes that not a single player that has been listed as doubtful for the Chargers under Norv Turner has wound up playing. Good news for the Texans here, who could be seeing the Chargers without  four of their top five receivers last year, as Vincent Jackson still will be sitting out. Here are your full lists from the man, the myth, the Nick Scurfield: 

Texans
...
Questionable
LB Xavier Adibi (hamstring/DNP), DT Shaun Cody (knee/DNP), TE Owen Daniels (hamstring/DNP), DT Earl Mitchell (ankle/full), DE Jesse Nading (ankle/DNP)
Probable
LB Kevin Bentley (knee/full), G Mike Brisiel (knee/full), TE Garrett Graham (shoulder/full), WR Andre Johnson (ankle/limited), LB Stanford Keglar (thigh/full), CB Karl Paymah (wrist/full), LB Darryl Sharpton (ankle/full), DE Mario Williams (hip/limited)

Chargers
Out
K Nate Kaeding (rt. groin/DNP)
Doubtful
WR Malcolm Floyd (hamstring/DNP), TE Antonio Gates (toe/DNP), WR Legedu Naanee (hamstring/DNP), LB Brandon Siler (foot/DNP)
Questionable
LB Larry English (foot/limited), WR Richard Goodman (hamstring/limited)
Full Participation in Practice
LB Kevin Burnett (shoulder/full), G Kris Dielman (neck/full), CB Quetin Jammer (no injury/DNP)

With Mitchell getting full practice time and Cody not, it will be interesting to see who gets more snaps at defensive tackle this week. Andre Johnson and Mario Williams should both play through their injuries, as usual. 

With Nate Kaeding out, former Texan Kris Brown gets to return to town. I'm sure that might send some Houston fans into conditioned booing at some point during the game.

Week 9 Texans Injury Report: Daniels Sidelined By Hammy

The Texans injury report shed a couple of big names in Mario Williams and Andre Johnson from the DNP list, but Owen Daniels continues to sit with a nagging hamstring that he aggravated against the Colts. Xavier "DNP" Adibi joined him on the sidelines while everyone else at least got a little work in on the side: 

Did Not Participate in Practice
LB Xavier Adibi (hamstring), TE Owen Daniels (hamstring)

Limited Participation in Practice
DT Shaun Cody (knee), WR Andre Johnson (ankle), DT Earl Mitchell (ankle), DE Jesse Nading (ankle), DE Mario Williams (hip)

Full Participation in Practice
LB Kevin Bentley (knee), G Mike Brisiel (knee), TE Garrett Graham (shoulder), LB Stanford Keglar (thigh), CB Karl Paymah (wrist), LB Darryl Sharpton (ankle)

Cody was a new addition to the report, but he often takes a day here or there off when the Texans are indoors due to his problems with turf. It looks like Brisiel will be good to go.

On the Chargers side of things, Antonio Gates again sat out and is looking more and more likely to miss the game on Sunday. The other two Chargers wideouts, Malcolm Floyd and Legedu Naanee, also sat out. The Chargers signed Kelley Washington to help reinforce the position today, so it's likely that at least one of the two won't be out there on Sunday. If you're looking for the Chargers players who will have big fantasy days against the terrible Texans defense, try Patrick Crayton and Randy McMichael.
