It looks like Arian Foster will be playing today against Pittsburgh, but what else is going on?
With only a few hours remaining until our Texans kick off against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Reliant, let's take a quick look at the latest injury news..
CB Kareem Jackson - Questionable
Jackson (knee) didn't practice Friday one day after being pulled from practice, the Houston Chronicle reports.
RB Ben Tate - Probable
Tate (back/hip) is probable for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
WR Kevin Walter - Probable
Walter (shoulder) was limited at practice this week, but is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, the Texans' official site reports.
WR Jacoby Jones - Probable
Jones (knee) was limited at practice this week, but is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, the Texans' official site reports.
WR Andre Johnson - Probable
Johnson (knee/toe) was limited at practice again Friday, but is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Steelers, the Texans' official site reports.
I don't even see the need of listing Andre on the injury report, you know he's going to play through pain and tear it up week in and week out.
RB Arian Foster - Probable
Coach Gary Kubiak said that Foster (hamstring) "looks good," adding that the Texans are "going to put him back to work full-time and see how he holds up" Sunday against the Steelers, HoustonTexans.com's Nick Scurfield reports.
Even though Ben Tate has filled in nicely in Foster's absence, it will still be very nice to have Arian back on the field today. With the Steelers' impressive run defense, I wouldn't expect any kind of big day from Foster but an effective one nonetheless.
