Bengals vs. Texans NFL injuries: Texans avoid serious injury

USA TODAY Sports

Houston advanced past the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday, managing to avoid serious injury.

The Texans have had their share of injuries recently, but Houston was able to avoid any serious injuries during the team's Wild Card win against the Cincinnati Bengals.

In addition to avoiding any new injuries, the Texans were also able to avoid suffering any setbacks. A few players, including linebacker Brooks Reed, returned and played well. Brooks finished with three tackles and a sack against Cincinnati. Reed did not play in Houston's first meeting with New England, so his presence could provide a boost this time around.

On the offensive side, tight end Garrett Graham battled injuries near the end of the season, but had his most productive game in weeks against Cincinnati. Graham caught three passes for 29 yards on Saturday, the most receptions he's caught since Week 12. Fellow tight end Owen Daniels has battled through several injuries late in the season, but was extremely effective on Saturday. Daniels caught nine passes for 91 yards. A healthy Daniels would be a big boost for Houston against New England.
