Texans injury report: Brooks Reed, Shaun Cody, Glover Quin all probable

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

The Houston defense is looking relatively healthy as most players dealing with injuries are listed as probable.

The Houston Texans are pretty damn healthy, which bodes well for a team playing for a first round bye and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. Alan Ball will miss this Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings, but everyone else on the injury report is listed as probable, including Brooks Reed. The linebacker's return from a groin injury is huge for the Texans as they get ready to take on Adrian Peterson.

Glover Quin and Shaun Cody are also listed as probable, giving that Houston defense an additional boost. Offensively, Owen Daniels is also probable.

At 18 players long, the Houston injury report is a bit daunting, but it actually looks pretty good with so many on it looking like good bets to play. That is huge considering what is on the line against the Vikings.

If the Texans win this weekend, they will clinch a first round bye and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. If either the New England Patriots or the Denver Broncos lose, the Texas will still clinch a first round bye even with a loss, while a loss by both wraps up home-field advantage throughout .
