The Thursday practice report was good news for the Texans as upgrades were numerous: Andre Johnson and James Casey both participated after sitting out Wednesday. Johnson was limited, while Casey was able to go the whole way. Mario Williams, Amobi Okoye, and Owen Daniels were also held back a little, as has been usual so far this year.
Dez Bryant participated for the Cowboys, and Jason Witten managed to go the whole way and looks good to go. Mike Jenkins was still limited, and Jay Ratliff was excused for the second straight day to deal with a personal problem.
