Does anyone know if Mathis is due back in action against PITT? I am interested to see if he will change the game any.

i hope he comes back. with his speed, any time he touches the ball is potentially game changing.

Rookie wide receiver Jerome Mathis, who has been bothered by a sore hamstring, returned to practice Thursday and should be available for Sunday's home opener against the Steelers.

The Texans need someone to come in and shake up their passing game, and Mathis with his sub-4.3 speed just might be the guy. There's a chance he may still be deactivated Sunday, but the fact that he's healthy enough to practice has to warm Texans coach Dom Capers' heart.

We really need him to get good field position on kickoffs and punt returns.

Injury update
Texans coach Dom Capers was ecstatic to announce after practice Thursday that all players participated in drills and are expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Rookie receiver Jerome Mathis , who has been bothered by a sore hamstring, might still be inactive, but that will be a game-time decision.

Guess good ol'Dom has to look at the stats and write a few things down in his notebook before figuring out if he plays. If he's healthy or hurt, let the man play. If he injured, let'em ride the bench.

He'll be de-activated for a 3rd or 4th tight end.
