Which Players Will Return for Houston Texas In Week 2?
The Houston Texans face a divisional opponent and huge a rival in the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. With Chris Johnson and a much improved defense, the Texans will need everyone back, especially if they start this game the way they did against the Chargers. So the question is, who has a chance of coming back?
Antonio Smith was suspended for the final two preseason games and the first regular season game for his scuffle with Richie Incognito, and is guaranteed to return to the playing field Sunday. He was returned to the Texans roster on Tuesday, sending David Quessenberry to the injured reserve. The best news about Smith returning now is that according to him, he is the healthiest he’s been in years.
J.J. Watt played in the game against the San Diego Chargers, but sustained a minor quad bruise that led to a little concern that he might miss the game Sunday. However, head coach Gary Kubiak relieved all fears about Watt’s status at his press conference Thursday.
Darryl Sharpton is another good candidate to return for the Texans as he had a successful practice Thursday. He’s expected to pass the final stage of the NFL concussion protocol, and be active against the Titans at Reliant Stadium. Sadly, Shiloh Keo will be starting for Ed Reed once again. Reed is still recovering from hip surgery in April and didn’t play in the game against San Diego on Monday. He’s once again a game-time decision.
