Texans vs. Vikings injury report: Brooks Reed returns to practice

Bob Levey

The Houston Texans had nine players total listed with limited participation in practice on Wednesday.

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.
