Reeves out this week with compound fracture

Cornerback Jacques Reeves, who has yet to play this season because of a fractured fibula, was expected to return this week against the Raiders. But Reeves was sidelined by a finger injury during warm-ups on Wednesday, and it turns out the injury will keep Reeves out at least one more game.

"Jacques will not be able to play this week," head coach Gary Kubiak said after practice on Thursday. "As I told you guys yesterday, he was going through warm-ups, got a ball thrown to him. A compound fracture is the way I understand it; came out of his skin.

"He's in the hospital right now. He had it fixed. He should be out of the hospital sometime this evening. Will not be available this weekend, hopefully next weekend. So we'll see."

Reeves started all 16 games and led the Texans with four interceptions last season. He fractured his left fibula during training camp on Aug. 4 and was projected to return around Week 2.

"It's been rough," Kubiak said. "But the good news is, hopefully he'll be back next week."
