Joseph returned an interception for a touchdown in Sunday's 20-13 win over the Bills.
Joseph picked an ideal time for his first interception of the season. With the game tied at 13-13, he jumped Kelvin Benjamin's out route and picked off Nathan Peterman for a 28-yard interception return for a touchdown with 1:23 left in the game. As injuries have hit the Texans' secondary, the 34-year-old Joseph, who has missed just seven games in seven-plus seasons in Houston, remains durable and without much dropoff in his game.
Joseph battled injuries throughout the 2017 season but still started all 16 games for Houston, recording 47 tackles (37 solo), two interceptions and one return touchdown. The veteran cornerback will turn 34 in April and should continue to be a key contributor in the Texans secondary.

Joseph was deemed day-to-day after injuring his shoulder in Sunday's loss to the Titans, but his return to full practice four days later clears up any concern regarding his availability for the Week 14 matchup with the Texans. Since earning AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 6 back in October for his two-interception effort against Cleveland, Joseph hasn't generated any turnovers in his subsequent six outings.
Joseph (shoulder) considers himself day-to-day and hopes to play against the 49ers next week, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.
Joseph is hardly providing an official diagnosis, but it's still good news after he was unable to return to Sunday's game. The veteran cornerback's practice reps this week should provide a clearer indication of his status for Week 14.
Joseph has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Titans due to a shoulder injury, Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Joseph's injury figures to result in additional snaps for Marcus Williams and Kevin Johnson at cornerback across from starter Kareem Jackson. The severity of Joseph's shoulder injury is somewhat unclear at this point, so his status for next week's matchup against the 49ers could be in question.
