Game Day: Jaguars at Texans

Gearing up

The Texans injury report looks better with each passing day and the team should be near full strength when Jacksonville visits Sunday afternoon.

Right tackle Todd Wade practiced some Friday. Head coach Dom Capers said he will be available for Sunday’s game but would likely back up Marcus Spears at the position. But safety Jason Simmons missed practice for the fourth-straight day Friday and will not play Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Capers had updated Simmons progress all week and while the seven-year veteran is improving after suffering a concussion at Tennessee Oct. 17, nagging headaches will keep him on the sideline. Eric Brown is scheduled to start at strong safety Sunday and will be backed up by Marlon McCree. Capers said McCree will also play as a defensive back in certain packages in place of Simmons.

McCree started 11 games at free safety last season after the Texans claimed him off waivers from the Jaguars. He had 31 tackles and an interception returned for a touchdown. He started every game for Jacksonville in 2002, finishing with 63 tackles and six interceptions. “Basically everyone else practiced and did what we anticipated them doing,” Capers said Friday.

The importance of the game seems to grow by the day. The Texans (3-3, 1-0) will become the only undefeated team in division play with a victory over the Jaguars (5-2, 2-1). In a bit of a scheduling abnormality the Texans did not play an AFC South game until the sixth game of the season, which makes this game, and every division game that follows, even more important down the stretch. The Jaguars are first in the division after defeating Indianapolis last week.
Oh yeah, Sunday is also Battle Red Day.

Excited? The Texans are. “I think our team understands what this game means,” Capers said. “We’ve got a team that’s leading our division coming into our stadium. They’ve won both of their road division games so obviously this is an important game to both teams.”

Need Some Fantasy Help
 
Hello fellow Texans fans I need some help with my fantasy team. I am starting
Tomlinson as one of my RB but I need to know who should I start as the other RB, C. Taylor vs. Eagles or A. Pinner vs Cowboys. It's a touchdown only league. idonno:

Jagsbch 10-31-2004 11:40 AM

Put it all on the line
I want to see front line action.
Hard hitting Donaven Darius Football action,
Balls and bodies flying vicariously through the air
Players gasping for air
Players seeing their bodies from above
And living to tell about it
Sask him once
Sack him twice
Sack him till he can't see daylight.
What the hell it's holloween.


Jack and Capers are about to draw
Byron and Carr about to Draw
Smith and Johnson are about to Draw
This is going to be a shoot out.

Excuse me while I shout
HOW BOUT THEM JAGUARS

Watching ESPN's pregame right now. Another Leftwich feature. Look, the kid's tough, but do we have to see the exact same @*(&@#% story every week? Isn't there ANYONE else on the Jags worth talking about????

Jwwillis 10-31-2004 11:53 AM

A win today will go a long way toward national exposure.

Did that show that clip of him in college where he played 1 play with a broken leg where his linemen caried him to the line of scrimmage? I have seen that clip about 72 times in the last two weeks.
