Kareem Jackson expected to return vs. Broncos

Kareem Jackson is expected to be ready for the Texans Monday night game at Denver, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. 
Following a hamstring injury, Jackson was a full participant in Thursday's practice after being inactive in Weeks 5 and 6 against Minnesota and Indianapolis. It's good news for Houston's secondary, which is dealing with multiple injuries, including second-year cornerback Kevin Johnson (foot), Johnathan Joseph (forearm), Quintin Demps (calf). 
"I think one thing we had this year in the secondary is we had a lot of competition because of who we've had there," defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel said. "As a result of the competition, it makes everybody better and so all those guys have gotten better. So, when we lose a guy then the next guy is able to step in and perform some." 
In Sunday's 26-23 overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts, safety Corey Moore started the first game of his career while cornerback Robert Nelson made his regular season debut and intercepted Andrew Luck in the second quarter. 
The (4-2) Texans travel to Denver to face the (4-2) Broncos on Monday Night Football in Week 7. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. CT on ESPN and SportsRadio 610.
