Griffin (ribs) was a full participant at Friday's practice.
Griffin has practiced fully all week and will play Monday night against Denver. This will be the first time in four weeks the Texans have a full complement of tight ends available as Stephen Anderson (hamstring) will play for the first time since Week 3. The tight end position has emerged as a viable target since head coach Bill O'Brien took over the play-calling duties, though the primary beneficiary of that focus as been C.J. Fiedorowicz.
Griffin and fellow tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz combined for 12 targets and nine catches on a night when the
Griffin (concussion) has been cleared to play in Week 6.
Griffin suffered a concussion in last week's game against Minnesota but was able to return to practice in full on Thursday and Friday. Te team removed his injury designation and he'll be ready to roll on Sunday, where he'll again backup C.J. Fiedorowicz.
Griffin (concussion) remains in the NFL's concussion protocol and did not participate in Wednesday's practice.
Griffin was deemed "day-to-day" by head coach Rex Ryan, but, even considering this endorsement of health, the tight end still seems unlikely to play against the Colts this weekend. To do so, the UConn product would need to progress rapidly through concussion protocol, which includes displaying the capability to participate in practice. Until that happens, Griffin's outlook will remain clouded.
Griffin caught two passes for eight yards prior to exiting Sunday's contest with what was initially termed as a neck injury. It's now known that he suffered a concussion, requiring him to enter the league's protocol. As a result, he won't be able to practice or play until being cleared, but teammate Stephen Anderson's (hamstring) expected Week 6 return at least helps Houston at tight end.
