Found June 03, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
While he was able to earn a trip to his second consecutive Pro Bowl last season, Houston Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph wasn’t healthy for much of the year. He recently told James Palmer of CSN Houston that his groin issue and sports hernia are things of the past, as he’s finally healthy again. "With the groin issues and everything behind me and the sports hernia on both sides, I had both those fixed," Joseph said Thursday. "Now I have more pop, more explosion with my legs. I can run all day again." Joseph played through a groin injury for a large part of last season, but it was discovered this offseason that it wasn’t the only ailment the cornerback was dealing with. Joseph was also dealing with a pair of sports hernias. He’s now anxious to get back on the field with the injuries behind him. "I'm just glad to have it behind me," Joseph said. "I'm feeling better than I've ever felt. I told somebody that yesterday. I was just excited that I got it fixed just to see where I am at on the field. And I'm having probably the best OTAs I've had in four or five years." Despite the injuries, Joseph finished the 2012 campaign with two interceptions, 11 passes defensed and 53 tackles.
