Cole (wrist/knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Cole was activated off injured reserve Tuesday and appears good to go for Sunday's game against the Browns after undergoing wrist surgery as well as arthroscopic knee surgery in late September. The 24-year-old should return to a rotational role at inside linebacker with the rest of the position group healthy.
Cole underwent surgery to repair a dislocated wrist and had arthroscopic knee surgery in late September. The Texans began Cole's 21-day practice window last week. The second-year linebacker recorded nine tackles before going down in Week 3, and the Texans hope he will be a key piece for the team's stretch run.
Cole (wrist) began the 21-day practice window to return from injured reserve Wednesday.
Starting Wednesday, the Texans have the next 21 days to decide if Cole should return this season. Head coach Bill O'Brien has voiced his optimism as to whether Cole can return in 2018. Cole can return to practice Wednesday, but isn't eligible to play -- if the team decides he can play -- until Dec. 9 against the Colts.
Coach Bill O'Brien said that Cole (wrist) has a "good chance" to return from injured reserve and play again during the 2018 season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Cole was placed on injured reserve during late September after undergoing wrist and knee surgery, and was initially expected to miss the entire 2018 season. If the second-year linebacker is able to eventually resume practicing and return to the field this season, he'll serve as a depth option and special teams asset.
Cole underwent wrist and knee surgery Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Cole dislocated his wrist during Sunday's loss to the Giants and was subsequently placed on injured reserve Monday. Per the report, the second-year linebacker's knee also went under the knife, though that surgery would've been delayed until a later date if not for his wrist needing immediate attention. Cole will miss the rest of the season and will attempt to fully recover in time for training camp in 2019.
