C.J. Fiedorowicz did not practice Wednesday, and his status remains uncertain for the Texans upcoming matchup against Jacksonville.

“I’d put him in the day-to-day category,” head coach Bill O’Brien said Wednesday. “He’s played a lot of snaps for us this year. He’s pretty banged up but I know he’s going to do everything he can to try to play on Sunday. I know that.”

The third-year tight end exited Sunday’s game at Indianapolis early to be evaluated for a concussion. He had three receptions for 32 yards in the Texans 22-17 win over the Colts.

“C.J.’s a big part of what we’ve been doing," O'Brien said. "Obviously, he’s had a good year. He’s a guy that does both things well, blocks well and obviously he’s had a good year in the passing game."

Fiedorowicz, who has not missed a start this season, is second on the team behind DeAndre Hopkins in receptions (48), receiving yards (505) and touchdowns (3). He is also currently the only tight end in the NFL with at least three receptions in every game since Week 4.

The (7-6) Texans will host the (2-11) Jaguars in Week 15. Sunday’s kickoff is set for 12 p.m. CT on CBS and SportsRadio 610.
