T.J. Yates, you got the juice now brother. No Matt Schaub and no Matt Leinart in your way, feel free to sling the pigskin all across the field. You need someone to throw the ball to? Well...your tight ends are dinged up, but both Owen Daniels and Joel Dreessen are toughing it out and did practice today. Your star wideout? Well...Andre Johnson's knee is dinged a bit, still recovering from issues pre-Thanksgiving but he's limited in practice today.
Maybe T.J. should just hand the ball off to Arian Foster and Ben Tate, let those receivers heal up.
