I’m assuming everyone who is reading this at one time or another had to go see the school nurse.  Sometimes we were told to go back to class and other times we got to go home.

The reason I bring that up, is because Arian Foster had to skip out the last part of practice Wednesday with what Gary Kubiak and the Texans say is a “illness.”  If you’ll remember, Gary Kubiak said that Johnathan Joseph was battling a “illness” during Sunday’s win.  However with Foster, it is not expected to be an issue for Sunday’s game at Jacksonville.

“He came out and started practiced and about a quarter of the way into it started feeling very poorly so obviously we got some little bug going on or something so hopefully it doesn’t get too bad,” Kubiak said.

With that being said, Joseph was also listed as a limited participant in practice and should also be good to go against the Jaguars.

Antonio Smith was the only player to not practice on Wednesday, which makes people wonder whether or not the Richie Incognito incident could have led to the issue.  That will be something to pay attention to on Thursday.

Brian Braman returned to practice for the first time since being sidelined with a hamstring issue.  However, he was listed as a limited participant.  His status for Sunday has not yet been issued by the team.  But, Gary Kubiak says he should be ready for the game, if he has a “clean week” of practice.

Brian Cushing is still dealing with soreness to his ribs, especially after taking the shot he did on Sunday after bringing down the J.J. Watt batted pass of Ryan Tannehill.  Cushing isn’t concerned about it.

“This is just typical football, typical playing linebacker,” Cushing said.

Cushing along with JJ Watt and Shaun Cody were all full participants in practice on Wednesday.

Other players listed on the injury report for the Texans are Brook Reed (limited practice with a hip issue), Tim Dobbins (limited with a neck/nose issue), and Antonie Caldwell (full practice on an ankle issue.)

All total, a typical week of bumps and bruises for the Texans.  Let’s just keep players out of the nurses office…  Right?
