Joseph (neck) said he's trending in the right direction and is optimistic he'll play in Saturday's first-round playoff game against the Colts, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Joseph sat out Sunday's 20-3 win over the Jaguars, the second game he's missed this season due to injury and just his ninth over eight seasons with Houston. The Texans have the advantage of being at home, but they need all hands on deck in the secondary against Indianapolis' Andrew Luck, who completed 67 of 103 passes for 863 yards, six touchdowns and one interception in two games against them this year.
