No Texans sit out of practice Wednesday

Posted Nov 14, 2012

For the first time all season, the Texans had a full complement of players on the practice field on Wednesday.


For the first time all season, the Texans had a full complement of players on the practice field on Wednesday.

All 53 players on the active roster participated in practice, as did inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton, who’s close to returning from the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Tight end Owen Daniels (ribs), nose tackle Shaun Cody (back/ribs) and running back Ben Tate (hamstring) were limited. All three have a chance to play Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars after sitting out in Week 10.

“We were kind of light in what we did, but they were all back in practice today, so should be all back out there tomorrow,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said.

Wednesday was the first time Tate practiced since injuring his hamstring in Week 7. Kubiak wasn’t ready to declare whether the third-year running back will play against Jacksonville.

“I can’t say that,” Kubiak said. “I don’t know until we push through the rest of the week. Obviously, tomorrow is our big work day and (then) we get into Friday. I think we’re heading in the right direction; a lot closer right now than we were at this time last week, so we’ll have to wait and see.”

Daniels was a game-time decision on Sunday at Chicago. He traveled with the team and worked on the field at Soldier Field before the game. Cody and Tate did not travel with the team, but Kubiak said Monday that Cody has “an excellent chance of playing this week.”

Inside linebacker Tim Dobbins (shoulder), defensive end Antonio Smith (ankle) and wide receiver Kevin Walter (groin) also were limited on Wednesday. Inside linebacker Bradie James (thumb), who like Dobbins suffered a minor injury against the Bears, practiced fully.
