Texans vs. Titans injury report: Johnathan Joseph, Bradie James, Brooks Reed, Derek Newton out

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Multiple starting Houston Texans will miss Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans due to injury.

The Houston Texans injury list keeps growing longer. They will be without linebackers Bradie James and Brooks Reed, cornerback Johnathan Joseph, tackle Derek Newton, and guard Antoine Caldwell against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

James and Reed join Brian Cushing on the list of injured Texans linebackers. Reed and James both got injured in the Texans' Thanksgiving day win over the Detroit Lions. Reed injured his groin and James his hamstring. Rookie Whitney Mercilus will get the opportunity to start due to the injuries.

Newton (knee) and Caldwell (hip) both got injured against the Lions as well. Joseph injured his hamstring against the Jaguars on Nov. 18 and has not played since.

One of the men who helped to replace Joseph, Alan Ball is listed as questionable with a foot injury. The Texans listed 19 players as probable for Sunday's game. Tight end Owen Daniels and wide receiver Andre Johnson were both limited earlier in the week, but participated fully in practice on Friday and are expected to play.
