Texans CB Johnathan Joseph practiced Wednesday after he left Thursday's game with a shoulder injury. He's hopeful he'll play Sunday vs. the Patriots. The Texans also got RB Alfred Blue (high ankle sprain) back. He's been out since the team's joint practice with the Saints.

J.J. Watt said his finger is broken, "but not bad" and that it won't bother him too much on Sunday. It's just a finger. If it were anything else, it'd be a problem," Watt said. "It's an injury that doesn't bother me whole lot because I didn't have use of that finger for a long time. I tore a tendon a few years back on it. So, it wasn't very useful anyway."

Veteran receiver Strong released by Texans

Receiver Jaelen Strong, who was suspended for the Texans' opener for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, was released by the team Monday.

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

The Texans released WR Jaelen Strong, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Texans only had three receivers active Thursday vs. the Bengals and Strong did not have a target. This leaves the Texans with DeAndre Hopkins, Braxton Miller, Bruce Ellington (concussion) and Will Fuller (broken collarbone) at wide receiver.

Rookie ILBs Zach Cunningham and Dylan Cole got game balls for their play on special teams on Thursday. Cunningham started in place of the suspended Brian Cushing. "Both those guys, they just need to keep getting better,” head coach Bill O'Brien said.

Ranking the NFL's 1-1 teams: Texans

With New England, Tennessee, Kansas City and Seattle on the Texans' schedule over their next five games, what chance will Deshaun Watson have?

Sarah Barshop ESPN Staff Writer 

The Texans have 10 days off between games after playing Thursday night, but even the extra days may not be enough for some of the players on the injury report to be back for Sunday's game in New England, especially the three players in the concussion protocol: tight ends Ryan Griffin and Stephen Anderson and wide receiver Bruce Ellington. If the three don't play, the Texans could have just one tight end and three receivers available against the Patriots.
