D.J. Swearinger says he will do what it takes to be ready for Sunday's game against the New York Giants.
"I'm feeling good,"Swearinger said Wednesday. "We'll take it day-to-day and we're going to be ready for Sunday."
The second-year safety hyperextended his left elbow when he collided with Brian Cushing during the Texans 30-14 win in Oakland.
Swearinger was wearing elbow brace, slightly more high-tech than the one J.J. Watt wears, on Wednesday in the locker room. The safety wasn't bothered about having to play with it, if necessary.
"Yes, it limits (mobility) to a certain extent but I'll be ready," he said.
Swearinger left in the third quarter of Sunday's game and did not return. He finished with three tackles, one forced fumble, and a fumble recovery against the Raiders.
Houston (2-0) will face the New York Giants (0-2) at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. Kickoff is scheduled for 12 p.m. CT (CBS KHOU-11, SportsRadio 610).
