Houston Texans Week 3 NFL Injury Report

Arian Foster looks to be a game-time decision, but what about Jacoby and Kevin Walter?

What's the latest injury news with our Texans as they get ready to take on the New Orleans Saints this afternoon?

RB Ben Tate - Probable

Tate (back) has positioned himself to become just the second back in NFL history to gain more than 100 yards rushing in his first three NFL starts, the Houston Chronicle reports.

CB Johnathan Joseph - Probable

Joseph (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Without Johnathan Joseph, I don't even want to think about the field day that Drew Brees could have against our defense. I can't envision him not playing in this game though.

WR Kevin Walter - Probable

Walter (shoulder) practiced for a third straight day Friday and appears read to play this week against New Orleans, the Texans' official site reports.

It appears that K-Dub will be returning to his starting receiver spot today, and I think he will be very important if Jacoby can't make it.

WR Jacoby Jones - Questionable

Jones (knee) practiced Friday, the Texans' official site reports.

After a complete practice on Friday, I fully expect Jacoby to be playing this afternoon. His absence would be crucial if this game turns into a shootout.

RB Arian Foster - Questionable

Coach Gary Kubiak said that Foster (hamstring) will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Saints, the Texans' official site reports.

With Derrick Ward officially ruled out, it would be nice if Arian can play today. If he can't make it, I would expect RB Chris Ogbonnaya to be activated from the practice squad in time for the game.
