Johnathan Joseph expected to play vs. Titans

Houston Texans' cornerback Johnathan Joseph looks like he will be ready to go when the Tennessee Titans visit Reliant Stadium on Sunday. He had been battling a sore groin all week and missed practices, but he was out on the practice field today.

Had Joseph not been able to play, Alan Ball would have likely started for him at cornerback. But Joseph will be out there, strengthening the NFL's fourth-best pass defense.

The Titans pass offense has been pretty good this season, ranking 11th in the NFL. A solid chunk of that has been to Nate Washington, who has made his chances count with 185 yards and two touchdowns on just seven catches this year. Having Joseph out there to help take away that big play threat will be big for the Texans.
