Dennard will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Dennard, a first-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, got his first career start in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, filling in for an injured Adam Jones (foot). Dennard has yet to make a strong impression, but he also hasn't had much of an opportunity, as the Bengals have a slew of former first-round draft picks at his position.
Jones (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game in Arizona.
According to ESPN's Coley Harvey, Darqueze Dennard is expected to replace Jones at right cornerback when the Bengals are in their nickel defense. It's likely a significant downgrade, especially with Jones playing at such a high level this season. He didn't practice all week and was listed as doubtful, so he may end up missing time beyond Week 11.
Per coach Bill O'Brien, Hoyer passed his final concussion test and will be the Texans' starter at QB this coming Sunday against the Saints.
T.J. Yates drew the start at quarterback for the Texans in this past Sunday's 24-17 win over the Jets, but the team will return to Hoyer in Week 12 and he'll have a chance to take aim at a Saints' defense that has allowed a league-high 28 passing TDs to date, en route to giving up an average of 293.1 passing yards per game. Only the Giants have allowed more (309.9).
Jackson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Jackson has now been ruled out of his fourth consecutive game after he was unable to practice at all Friday due to a sprained ankle. Kevin Johnson will likely get the start in place of the 27-year-old.
Joseph, who briefly left Sunday's win over the Jets to have his knee examined, downplayed the severity of the injury, calling it a bruise, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Joseph was able to finish off the game, making two tackles and recording two passes defensed in the win. We'll need to see if the knee flares up during the practice week as the Texans prep for a Week 12 game against New Orleans.
