Texans starting outside linebacker Brooks Reed, who has 18 quarterback hurries this season and generally a strong run defender, returned to practice on Tuesday after suffering a groin injury against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day. He returned against the Vikings in Week 16 but was inactive against the Colts last weekend.
Though Texans head coach Gary Kubiak is hesitant to offer much in projections for Saturday, defensive end J.J. Watt is enthusiastic.
"It's great to have Brooks back," Watt said. "We have good chemistry. It's good to have him out there as a pass rusher and as a run player. He's a very good player, a lot of intensity, and it's going to be nice to have him out there."
Cornerback Alan Ball also returned to practice on Tuesday after dealing with a foot injury throughout much of December.

I saw a monkey smoking a cigarette and drinking a beer in Cancun, Mexico so not much surprises me with these things. This Monkey riding a dog at the Colts game was just hilarious though. The thing is so small, yet it looks like warrior riding a horse back in the day. Just good stuff. Check out the video below. Chuck Pagano also made his return to the NFL in this game...

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By KRISTIE RIEKEN AP Sports Writer With one mighty swat, J.J. Watt knocked down Andy Dalton's pass, intercepted it and returned it for a touchdown in last year's playoff win over Cincinnati for one of the biggest plays in Texans' history.
A year later, the second-year defensive end is one of the league's top defenders, and he'...

The Houston Texans are hosting the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday to begin the NFL playoffs for the second straight year.
This time, Matt Schaub will be in the spotlight.
Schaub will make his first postseason start as the stumbling Texans try to eliminate Cincinnati in the wild-card round, a year after they did so with a third-string quarterback.
Houston's first playoff game...
LAST WEEK: 11-5
REGULAR SEASON: 168-86-1 (66%)
The Texans have been really disappointing the last few weeks, but I don't see that continuing this week. Everyone knows that Schaub has been struggling, but Dalton hasn't been too sharp either. I think his struggles will outweigh Schaub's in this playoff game. Both of these rosters are very similar...
