* *Tight end Garrett Graham has been cleared to play against the New England Patriots on Sunday after suffering a concussion in the Wild Card round.

Coach Gary Kubiak said Friday that Graham had passed all of the NFL's concussion testing protocols and was ready to play. Graham has practiced all week after suffering a concussion Saturday late in the fourth quarter of the Texans' 19-13 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals at Reliant Stadium.

The Texans are 100 percent healthy as they head into their Divisional Round game at Gillette Stadium. Every player on the active roster participated in practice on Friday, including cornerback Alan Ball, who missed practice on Wednesday with a foot injury.

Graham, starting right tackle Derek Newton (knee) and outside linebacker Brooks Reed (groin) all will play against New England after missing the Texans' Dec. 10 game in Foxboro because of injuries. Having Graham will be crucial for the Texans' offense, which often features Graham in two- and three-tight end sets with Owen Daniels and fullback James Casey.
