J.J. Watt, Brian Cushing and Jadeveon Clowney were back at practice on Friday.
The defensive end and linebackers didn't participate in Wednesday or Thursday's work because of injuries, but were back with their teammates on the practice field at the Houston Methodist Training Center. Despite their absence in the week's first two practices, head coach Bill O'Brien said all three would play against the Colts in Week 15.
"We had a good practice today, and everybody was out there," O'Brien said on Friday. "They had a good day today."
The Texans fly to Indianapolis on Saturday, and face the Colts on Sunday at noon CT inside Lucas Oil Stadium.
