Strong missed Monday's practice due to illness, ESPN.com reports.

Strong is coming off a pair of touchdowns in Houston's most recent game, which came while teammates Nate Washington (hamstring) and Cecil Shorts (shoulder) were both sidelined. While those were Strong's only two targets so far this season, the rookie could benefit from extra reps once he returns healthy, but his current illness should solidify Keith Mumphery's superior standing on the depth chart ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
