Garrett Graham could miss season opener

Garrett Graham may not start in Week 1 against Washington. The Texans starting tight end did not practice Wednesday or Thursday due to a back issue. Head coach Bill O'Brien was asked if Graham was in danger of missing Sunday's game. He wasn't, according to O'Brien, but it could be a game-time decision.
"It hasn't been ruled on yet, though," O'Brien said. "I wouldn't use danger. He may not be able to play in the first game. Danger. You know, lets maybe not use that word. You know what I mean? We're still checking him out. He might be available. He's probably a guy that we'd have to work out on the morning of the game."
O'Brien indicated that Graham's injury, incurred in practice, wasn't major but could require longer than the few days remaining until the season opener to heal up completely.When

The fifth-year veteran, suffering from an ailing back, did not practice Wednesday or Thursday.

"It hasn't been ruled on yet, though," O'Brien said Thursday. "We're still checking him out. He might be available. He's probably a guy that we'd have to work out on the morning of the game."
