At this point in the season players are hurt, but it depends on if they are injured or not. The Houston Texans had 16 players listed on their Friday injury report, and seven of those were fully able to participate. Starting wide receiver Andre Johnson was limited in practice, and backup running back Ben Tate was actually held out completely with a toe injury.
Johnson has been slowed down by a groin injury, but it has not hindered his ability to play in all four games this season. Starting tight end Owen Daniels was another player who was held back on Friday, as he has been bothered with a thigh injury all week.
