Texans vs. Colts injury report: Johnathan Joseph limited, Brooks Reed sits

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

The Texans are riddled with injuries ahead of their AFC South battle with the Indianapolis Colts.

After a 42-14 drubbing at the hands of the New England Patriots on Monday night, the Houston Texans are trying to stay healthy ahead of their critical matchup with the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday. The Texans are hanging on to the top seed in the AFC by just a game, trailing by the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos.

In practice ahead of the matchup, the Texans continue to deal with numerous injuries. Cornerback Johnathan Joseph was limited for the second straight day with a groin injury. Defensive end Antonio Smith was also limited with an ankle injury. Linebacker Brooks Reed sat out of practice for the second straight day with a groin injury and defensive back Alan Ball also sat out of his second day of practice this week because of a foot injury. Punter Donnie Jones was able to return to Thursday's practice as he deals with an issue in his right knee.

Things are a little better on offense where running back Ben Tate was a full participant in practice Thursday while dealing with a hamstring and foot issue. Tackle Derek Newton (knee) and guard Wade Smith (knee/ribs) were both limited for the second consecutive day.
