Going into Week 1 against the Dolphins, the Houston Texans are healthy and ready to go.

Going into their first regular season game in 2012 against the Miami Dolphins, the Houston Texans are as healthy as an NFL team could hope to be after four preseason games. No starters are out with major injuries for Houston, and the players who did have minor problems with injury should be back on the field for Week 1, according to head coach Gary Kubiak:

"They’ll all be back and ready to go," Kubiak said. "The first thing I’m going to do is freshen them all up. I’m going to give them a break here this weekend as we finish putting this team together. Then we’ll have a little extra work on Monday and give them their normal Tuesday. So I think this weekend is about getting them all fresh and back, frame of mind, body, everything moving forward. Everybody should be there. I don’t foresee any issues."

The most major injury that the Texans suffered during the preseason was to backup right tackle Rashad Butler, who suffered a knee injury during Houston's final preseason game against the Vikings and was sent to injured reserve soon after. Houston signed Ryan Harris to take his place on the roster shortly after.
