NFL injury report: Texans escape Week 14 without further damage

Michael Ivins-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Texans didn't appear to add to a lengthy injury report in Monday night's embarrassing loss to the Patriots.

Unless you count pride and public perception, the Houston Texans escaped the 42-14 Monday-night drubbing at the hands of the New England Patriots relatively unscathed on the injury front.

That doesn't mean Houston isn't without its injury concerns. Cornerback Alan Ball (foot) and defensive tackle Ron Brace (elbow) missed Monday night's game, and the team's injury report as of Tuesday morning was still loaded with players who were questionable going into the week.

The most notable names on the team's injury report going into the game with New England all managed to play (though it obviously didn't help on the scoreboard). Starting left tackle Duane Brown has been nursing a bad back, cornerback Johnathan Joseph has been playing in spite of a bad hamstring and running back Ben Tate was able to back up starter Arian Foster despite a bad hamstring. Tate rushed for 46 yards on eight carries in the loss Monday night.
