Kareem Jackson will start Thursday night against Indianapolis. It's good news for the Texans defense, which saw injuries to safety Quintin Demps and outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus in Houston's 48-21 loss to the Falcons.
"Kareem Jackson passed his concussion test. He passes it Sunday and he passed it again on Monday morning so he's not in the concussion protocol and he will be available for Thursday's game."
Jackson, who exited Sunday's game early, returned to practice on Tuesday. The team has a short week as they prepare for their first AFC South division game of the season. The (1-3) Texans host the (2-2) Colts on Thursday night with kickoff scheduled for 7:25 p.m. CT.
