HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against Jacksonville. Gary Kubiak announced Jackson’s status in his Friday press conference.

Jackson said he is dealing with a broken first rib and that his status for next week is still in question.The first rib is located high up the torso near the collar-bone.

“The type of injury is one of those that’s got to heel on its own,” Jackson said.”I’m feeling a lot better than I have the last couple weeks and I am looking forward to next week and being able to do more and getting healthy.”

Jackson seemed disappointed that he couldn’t get back on the field and help his team break a franchise worst eight game losing skid.

“I definitely don’t want to be labeled as one of those players that is injury prone and misses games,” Jackson said. “This is something I don’t want to get used to.”

“It’s definitely tough only being able to watch (my team) on Sundays and not being able to fight with them.” Jackson added.

Jackson was not definitive on whether he would be healthy for next week but he is confident that he should be ready if his healing continues to progress at its current pace.

Sunday will be the second straight game Jackson will miss for the Texans. Jackson has not missed back-to-back game since Week 4 and 5 of the 2011 season.  Brice McCain will start for the Texans in Jackson’s place.

Kubiak also listed cornerback Elbert Mack and safety Jawanza Starling out for Sunday.
