HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON)

Texans cornerback Kareem Jackson told reporters after Friday’s practice that he will play in Sunday’s game against the AFC East leading New England Patriots.

Head Coach Gary Kubiak confirmed Jackson’s comments in his press conference. Jackson has missed the last two games for the Texans with a broken rib.

Jackson, who hasn’t missed consecutive games since the 2011 season. Is glad to be getting back on the field.

“Sitting out the last two games has been tough,” Jackson said. “To be able to be out there to fight with my teams, we are going to try to finish the season strong.”

Jackson mentioned he still isn’t at 100 percent from his rib injury, but is healthy enough to go. He mentioned several times he is testing it out and won’t know how strong he will be until gets out on the field and attempts a hit.

“I won’t know how I am feeling until I try to tackle somebody, ” Jackson said. “Hopefully it is fine and it is something I can fight through and play through.”

The Texans will need Jackson to defend against the New England passing attack which has improved during the month of November. The Patriots, while currently ranked 13th in the league in passing yards per game (245), averaged 340 yards per game through the air in November.
