11/29/15RBAlfred BlueBACKPROBABLEBlue (back) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Saints after being limited in practice Friday.

All 16 players the Texans listed on their Week 12 injury report drew probable designations, but given that Blue was one of just three limited at Friday's practice his status is still worth confirming in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff.

11/29/15CBA.J. BouyeCONCUSSIONPROBABLETexans cornerback A.J. Bouye left Thursday night's game against Indianapolis with a quadriceps injury, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Bouye, who started the game in Houston's nickel package, will be checked out in the coming days.

11/29/15LBMax BulloughSHOULDER, HAMSTRINGPROBABLEThe Texans placed linebacker Max Bullough on injured reserve and promoted tight end Anthony Denham from the practice squad, reports ESPN.com.
11/29/15LBJadeveon ClowneyWRISTPROBABLEClowney (back) recorded two tackles (one solo), including half a sack, a quarterback hit and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Clowney had sat out the Texans' previous game with a muscular issue in his back.

11/29/15DTChristian CovingtonHIPPROBABLECovington had two tackles, including his first sack of the season, in Monday night's 10-6 win over the Bengals.

Covington is starting to get more playing time, taking snaps away from Vince Wilfork who has been a better personality than a tackler for Houston.

11/29/15LBAkeem DentHAMSTRINGPROBABLEThe Texans will re-sign veteran linebacker Akeem Dent to a two-year contract, according to a report from ESPN's Josina Anderson
11/29/15QBBrian HoyerCONCUSSIONPROBABLEHoyer (concussion) is slated to start Sunday's game against the Saints.

Working in Hoyer's favor in Week 12 is that he'll take aim at a Saints' defense that has allowed a league-high 28 passing TDs to date, while giving up an average of 293.1 passing yards per game. On that front, only the Giants have allowed more (309.9) yardage in the air.

11/29/15CBKareem JacksonANKLEPROBABLEJackson (ankle) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

Jackson, who has been inactive the last four games with an ankle injury, looks like he'll be returning to the active lineup Week 12 against the Saints.

(Updated 11/25/2015)
11/29/15CBCharles JamesFOOTPROBABLEJames was claimed off waivers by the Texans, the Houston Chronicle reports.

James will provide some depth on special teams but also on defense as the team announced starting cornerback Kareem Jackson (ankle) unlikely to play Week 7 against Miami.

11/29/15CBen JonesHANDPROBABLE
11/29/15CBJohnathan JosephKNEE, WRISTPROBABLEJoseph (knee) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Joseph injured his knee during Week 11's win over the Jets, but we also learned Wednesday that he has a wrist injury.

(Updated 11/26/2015)
11/29/15LBWhitney MercilusBACKPROBABLEMercilus filled in for the injured Jadeveon Clowney (back) and had 3.5 sacks, four quarterback hits and four tackles for loss in Sunday's win over the Titans.

Mercilus has seen his snap count reduced since Clowney has been available, but he's not around, Mercilus has been productive with 5.5 sacks this season.

11/29/15SEddie PleasantNECKPROBABLEEvery player listed as "probable" on the Texans injury report is active Thursday against the Colts. 
11/29/15RBChris PolkKNEE, HAMSTRINGPROBABLEPolk (knee, hamstring) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Saints, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Polk's fantasy utility remains limited to deeper formats as long as both Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes remain healthy enough to play. With that in mind, Blue was limited at practice Friday, but still listed as probable for Sunday's contest.

(Updated 11/27/2015)
11/29/15WRNate WashingtonHIPPROBABLEWashington (hip) caught two of six targets for 13 yards in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Washington had a two-week run in which caught 13 balls, three touchdowns and gained over 200 yards, but has been limited to four catches for 45 yards the last two weeks. It should be noted that Washington's lean weeks coincided with Cecil Shorts returning to action. As Houston's quarterbacks have a full complement of wideout targets, Washington's role has been reduced.
