The Texans' injury report for Week 14 featured a lengthy list of injured defenders, but all but one player from that side of the ball was able to take the field Thursday against the Jaguars. While defensive back Jawanza Starling (foot) was inactive prior to kickoff, 11 other injured players were able to play through their issues.

Defensive lineman Antonio Smith (not injury related), linebackers Joe Mays (knee), Mike Mohamed (hamstring), Darryl Sharpton (knee), Whitney Mercilus (hip) and Jeff Tarpinian (groin), and defensive backs Brice McCain (hamstring), Johnathan Joseph (groin), Kareem Jackson (ribs), D.J. Swearinger (foot) and Shiloh Keo (neck) are all in uniform Thursday.

Whitney Mercilus ready to play opener
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

It's all but official: Texans outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus will play Monday night. He has overcome a hamstring injury to practice every day this week, including Saturday, and is listed as probable for the game.

Mercilus looks to take the momentum gained in his rookie year of 2012 and run with it. He started just three of 16 games, but registered six sacks to begin justifying his first-round draft status.
