Texans CB Johnathan Joseph Misses Another Day Of Practice
The Texans were hoping to have Johnathan Joseph back today after he missed Wednesday’s practice with a sore groin.
Joseph still had some soreness, though, so coach Gary Kubiak didn’t push him. He was the only player, other than receiver Lestar Jean who is recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, to miss practice today, Kubiak said.
If Joseph can’t play, Alan Ball could be asked to start at corner in his place.
“Alan can play,” defensive coordinator Wade Phillips said. “That’s what we brought him in for. He hasn’t played corner in a couple years so [he's working on] getting the techniques down. He had 2 or 3 interceptions in practice. Alan looks good; we’re confident he can play.”
Nickel corner Brice McCain is another options to move outside, and the loss of Joseph would also mean Brandon Harris would get involved in the game plan.
