Texans outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, who hasn't played since hurting his knee in the opener, has begun jogging as part of his rehab and expects to return "in a few weeks," reports the Houston Chronicle. Clowney would not provide a more exact timetable.
Texans cornerback Darryl Morris, who came down with the game-ending interception late in the fourth quarter to clinch a 23-17 win over the Bills in Week 4, was spotted wearing a brace on his left leg on Monday, per the Houston Chronicle. When asked if he'll play against the Cowboys in Week 5, Morris referred all injury questions to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Though Joique Bell missed practice Wednesday after leaving early in Week 4 with a concussion, the Lions aren't ruling him out for Week 5 against Buffalo. But even if he plays, you probably wouldn't want to start him in Fantasy.
Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who was seen limping noticeably before practice, was involved in the media portion of the Wednesday session, according to the Detroit News. But he was wearing a wrap on his right knee and was clearly limited.
As Chris Towers so deftly noted Sunday, Golden Tate's breakthrough performance in which he caught eight passes for 116 yards Week 4 at the Jets may have had something to do with Calvin Johnson playing only 57 percent of the Lions' snaps because of a sprained ankle. So presumably, Tate owners would like to know how Johnson is doing now.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz said rookie Devin Taylor will be asked to play a bigger role on defense after the team lost starting defensive end Jason Jones to a season-ending knee injury Sunday against the Redskins.
