Texans' Johnathan Joseph: No Week 7 absence expected
Joseph (forearm) is not anticipated to miss next Monday's game against the Broncos, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Joseph sustained an injury to his forearm during Sunday night's win over the Colts, and although the results of his Monday MRI have yet to surface, the veteran's ailment still isn't expected to sideline him. That comes as good news for the Texans, especially after teammate Kevin Johnson suffered a broken foot Sunday. With Johnson out, and fellow starter Kareem Jackson (hamstring) nursing an injury of his own, Joseph's importance to Houston's secondary is magnified, so the team will certainly hope he's indeed fine to play in next Monday's tilt.
