COMMENTARIES ARE ESSENTIALLY UNCHANGED.

COLE WAS WAS UPGRADED TO LIMITED IN PRACTICE............THIS WAS A NON CONTACT PRACTICE. BACK ISSUES ARE INJURIES THAT ARE EASILY AGGRAVATED, ESPECIALLY WITH HARD-HITTING THAT IS UNAVOIDABLE BY A LB IN A GAME. SUCH INJURIES SHOULD BE KEPT OUT OF A GAME IF THERE IS NOT A FULL WEEK OF FULL PRACTICE. IF HE ENDS UP QUESTIONABLE AND TRIES TO PLAY SUNDAY, IT WOULD NOT BE SURPRISING FOR HIM NOT TO BE ABLE TO COMPLETE THE GAME.

Although he did not show on this week's Injury Report, I thought I should include his injury history returning to this game. The pic below was taken Wednesday November 11. This was during
the week's only contact practice day. He shed his knee brace yesterday for the first time since mid October when he injured his right knee.

RB NICK CHUBB [KNEE]...................MISSED LAST 4 GAMES BEFORE THE BYE WEEK WITH A GRADE II MCL TEAR OF HIS RIGHT KNEE SUFFERED IN WEEK 4..............OCT 2015, HE SUFFERED A LEFT KNEE DISLOCATION WHICH INVOLVED RUPTURES OF HIS MCL, LCL AND PCL (THE ACL WAS SPARED) ALONG WITH SIGNIFICANT ARTICULAR CARTILAGE DAMAGE............THE BYE AFFORDED HIM GOOD ADDITIONAL REST AND REHAB TIME...............IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE IF HE HAS ANY RESIDUAL EFFECTS OF HIS MOST RECENT INJURY.

The Texans are getting notorious for not posting their Injury and Status Reports until well into the evenings. But here is what I have learned so far.

KELEMETE HAS BEEN RULED OUT.

DAVID JOHNSON HAS BEEN RULED OUT.

OMENIHU HAS BEEN RULED QUESTIONABLE.

COLE HAS BEEN RULED QUESTIONABLE.

I STILL HAVE SIGNIFICANT DOUBT THAT OMENIHU OR COLE WILL BE ABLE TO PLAY.........AND IF THEY TRY, I QUESTION HOW EFFECTIVE THEY WILL BE AND IF THEY COMPLETE THE GAME WITHOUT AGGRAVATING THEIR INJURIES.

As I expected, Cole is OUT for Sunday..............he has been placed on IR.
