Texans 'Concerned' About CB Jonathan Joseph's Injury
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.
Joseph’s 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 aren’t writing off Joseph yet.
“We trust Jay-Jo,” Kubiak said. “If he says he can go, we’ll 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 don’t want to wait (on any of the injured players),” he said. “If a guy’s ready to go, let’s play. Every game’s 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, there’s a much greater chance we’ll play him.”
