Kareem Jackson "doing well", should play Sunday

Wednesday and Thursday were good days for Kareem Jackson.

The veteran cornerback practiced with his teammates both afternoons. It looks like he'll suit up this Sunday for the first time since exiting the Philadelphia game on November 2 with a knee injury.

"I'm back on the practice field," Jackson said. "It feels good to be back out there. It's day-to-day right now. I feel a ton, a lot better."

Head coach Bill O'Brien said Jackson is "doing well" on the fields at the Houston Methodist Training Center, and is optimistic about having the fifth-year pro back in the fold.

"He was out there today moving around well," O'Brien said. "I would expect him to be able to play in the game."

Jackson's started 67 of the 70 games he's played in since the Texans drafted him in the first round in 2010. He said the rehab from the injury has been good in that he's been helped back physically, but also put at ease mentally too.

"Honestly, I don't really have any concerns," Jackson said. "Like I said, our training staff has done a great job to getting me to the point where I am now. Getting me to the point to where I'm ready to go on Sunday."
