Demps (calf) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice.
Demps hasn't played since Week 5 against Minnesota, but his return would be a big help given that safety Corey Moore remains under the concussion protocol after getting injured during the second half of Monday's loss to Denver. Demps has 21 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble in five games.
Peters (quadriceps) is out for Week 7's matchup against the Broncos.
Peters is still in the process of recovering from a quadriceps injury that he suffered against Minnesota in Week 5. His absence will thin the Texans' depth at linebacker, but shouldn't drastically affect their overall performance against the Broncos.
