Texans defense largely healthy Thursday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/5/13) The Texans' injury report for Week 14 featured a lengthy list of injured defenders, but all but one player from that side of the ball was able to take the field Thursday against the Jaguars. While defensive back Jawanza Starling (foot) was inactive prior to kickoff, 11 other injured players were able to play through their issues.

Defensive lineman Antonio Smith (not injury related), linebackers Joe Mays (knee), Mike Mohamed (hamstring), Darryl Sharpton (knee), Whitney Mercilus (hip) and Jeff Tarpinian (groin), and defensive backs Brice McCain (hamstring), Johnathan Joseph (groin), Kareem Jackson (ribs), D.J. Swearinger (foot) and Shiloh Keo (neck) are all in uniform Thursday.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/4/13) Eleven Texans defenders have been placed on the injury report for the game Thursday against the Jaguars, but all are probable.

The listed linebackers are Joe Mays (knee), Whitney Mercilus (hip), Mike Mohamed (hamstring), Darryl Sharpton (knee) and Jeff Tarpinian (groin). The lone lineman is Antonio Smith (not injury related).

Whitney Mercilus keeps up the heat
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/7/13) Texans linebacker Whitney Mercilus sacked Colin Kaepernick for a 6-yard loss in the loss at San Francisco, giving him 4 1/2 sacks this season. That's tied for eighth in the NFL.

Mercilus has 3 1/2 sacks in the past two weeks.

Texans get several players back
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/13) Several Texans will suit up Monday night after being listed as probable on the injury report. They include corners A.J. Bouye (knee) and Brice McCain (knee), tight end Garrett Graham (hip), linebacker Whitney Mercilus (hamstring), safety Eddie Pleasant (knee), wideout DeVier Posey (Achilles), guard Wade Smith (knee) and linebacker Brooks Reed (back).
Whitney Mercilus ready to play opener
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/7/13) It's all but official: Texans outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus will play Monday night. He has overcome a hamstring injury to practice every day this week, including Saturday, and is listed as probable for the game.

Mercilus looks to take the momentum gained in his rookie year of 2012 and run with it. He started just three of 16 games, but registered six sacks to begin justifying his first-round draft status.
