Xavier Adibi also didn't play and is also a game-time decision, but no quotes were given on whether he'd be able to play without practicing.
If Daniels can't go, Joel Dreessen would get the start. Dreessen has been a big part of the Texans game plan anyway, so tight end James Casey would benefit the most from Daniels absence. The starting outside linebacker spot that Adibi played while Brian Cushing was suspended is currently being filled by Kevin Bentley. Although there is a chance that Darryl Sharpton could play his way into the lineup at some point.
