One of the NFL's best rushing attacks will face off against one of the top rushing defenses in the league on Sunday, with the Houston Texans apparently ready to get a key member of the defense back on the field against Minnesota.
Outside linebacker Brooks Reed returned to practice on Wednesday -- albeit listed as having limited participation -- after having missed the past four games with a groin injury. Safety Glover Quin participated in practice in limited fashion, as did tackle Derek Newton, as nine players total were on the injury report with a limited capacity in practice on Wednesday.
Defensive back Alan Ball was not at practice once more, having missed the past three games with a foot injury. He was the only player that did not participate in practice on Wednesday.
The Texans, who have already locked up a playoff spot, take the field against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at 12 p.m. CT.
