During the first practice of the week, on Wednesday, two familiar faces returned to the Texans practice field at the Methodist Training Center.
After pulling himself from week 2’s contest against at the Dolphins due to “tightness” in his hamstring, questions have been surrounding the team as to whether or not he would be able to practice and be ready for Sunday’s matchup against the Saints. That remains to be seen, but it is most certainly a positive sign to see him out on the field at the start of the week.
Kevin Walter was also a question mark after the “4 letter network” incorrectly reported that he had his collar bone broken in the season opener against the Colts. As it turned out, he only suffered from a serious bone bruise and was expected to miss 1-2 weeks. He was listed as “a game time decision” by Gary Kubiak against the Fins, but did not play.
Whether or not the play, remains to be seen, but all can agree that having these two pieces of the Texans’ potent offense back is a positive sign.
