Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph (hamstring), linebacker Tim Dobbins (shoulder) and receiver-returner DeVier Posey (knee-hamstring) missed practice Tuesday and all figure to be game-time decisions in Detroit on Thursday morning, coach Gary Kubiak said.
Josephs health is a concern, defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said, especially considering the Lions have the most explosive quarterback-receiver combination in the NFL in Mathew Stafford and Calvin Johnson.
But the coaches arent writing off Joseph yet.
We trust Jay-Jo, Kubiak said. If he says he can go, well let him go. I sent him in about halfway through practice today to get some extra treatment.
Despite the short week, Kubiak is approaching the Lions game with an all-hands-on-deck mentality.
I dont want to wait (on any of the injured players), he said. If a guys ready to go, lets play. Every games important. I want them all ready to play.
Including backup running back Ben Tate, who has missed the last three games since suffering the pull on his final carry against Baltimore. Kubiak said Tate worked harder than whole team today. He ran his tail off with the trainers. If he walks in here (Wednesday) and says he feels good, theres a much greater chance well play him. Source: Houston Chronicle Attached Thumbnails

This was the scene as Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson leaped into the Reliant Stadium stands after his game winning catch and run against the Jags on Sunday in overtime.

Talk about one of the wildest games we have seen the Houston Texans involved in, but this shootout was one that Texans’ fans can be proud of. It provided 640 yards of offense for the Texans and a game for the franchise history book for Andre Johnson.

This weekend, the Houston Texans nearly dropped a game to one of the worst teams in the NFL. It was an offensive shootout with little defense to speak of from either team, and the Texans emerged from overtime with the victory.
The other story line that came from the Texans near-miss was the possible end of the Blaine Gabbert era in Jacksonville. After leaving the game early with...

Houston Texans (9-1) at Detroit Lions (5-5)
Every year the Lions have a Thanksgiving home game and every year they struggle. They’ve covered just once in their last 9 Thanksgiving home games. Even last year when they were good and made the playoffs for the first time in a decade, they didn’t play well on Thanksgiving, losing 27-15 against the Green Bay Packers. Most of these...
Last week: 1 (+0)
They’re still the #1 team, but maybe only by default. I’m still not sold on any one team right now and maybe they’re just keeping this seat warm for the 49ers, who I’ll be sold on in a way I’m sold on no other if Kaepernick continues to start and proves last Monday was not a fluke. Instead, for right now, I think there are 6 teams that are...

Detroit wideout Calvin Johnson hauled in eight receptions on 17 targets for 140 yards and a touchdown Thursday versus Houston.Fantasy Spin:Texans CB Johnathan Joseph was inactive so we expected Johnson to see even more looks than he normally gets. Johnson showed why he's the No. 1 fantasy receiver by far with another elite line.
