Houston Texans cornerback Jonathan Joseph told CSNHouston.com that he played with a groin injury as well as two sports hernias during the 2012 season.
“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.”
Now that Joseph’s injuries are behind him, he’s feeling a lot better.
“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 playing through multiple injuries, Joseph recorded 55 tackles 2 interceptions and 11 passes defended.

It was a hot day for the Houston Texans and probably one of the more fast paced practices of the OTAs. The Texans concentrated on red zone offense and defense which upped the intensity on the field.
It was a normal off day for some veterans but the team was running full speed during the last official week of OTAs.
