Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – Texans Wide Receiver Jaelen Strong returned to practice Wednesday. Strong has been inactive four straight games since he injured his ankle in Week 8 against the Lions. However, not practicing today out of the receiving core was Rookie Braxton Miller.
Defensive End Jadeveon Clowney, Defensive Back Johnathan Joseph, Quarterback Tom Savage and Running Back Tyler Ervin all did not practice today as well.
Whether or not Strong will be ready for Sunday though is not up to him. “Got to ask Coach O’Brien, he’s making all the decision on who plays… Got to ask him,” Jaelen said. “It’s a process, just one day at a time. Just thankful to be back out there with the guys.”
Strong was limited in practice today along with Linebackers Brian Cushing and Benardrick McKinney, Wide Receiver Will Fuller, Defensive Back Kareem Jackson, Defensive Lineman Vince Wilfork and Running Back Lamar Miller.
“I’m good, you know, I’m getting there. In this part of the season everyone is nicked up a little bit but you know I’ve been getting a lot treatment. Just try to be ready by Sunday,” Lamar said.
The Texans will look to end a three game losing streak Sunday in Indianapolis. Both the Colts and Texans are (6-6) on the season, but the AFC South currently belongs to Houston with an undefeated division record. Indianapolis has won three of their last four games.
