Texans enter Week 14 clash vs. Jags relatively healthy
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/5/14) The Texans enter their Week 14 clash against the Jaguars relatively healthy, with 13 of 16 players on the final injury report deemed probable. Those players include: Tackle Tyson Clabo (foot), inside linebacker Brian Cushing (knee), tight end Anthony Denham (illness), inside linebacker Akeem Dent (neck), running back Arian Foster (groin), running back Jonathan Grimes (ankle), cornerback Kareem Jackson (knee), wide receiver Andre Johnson (rest), cornerback Johnathan Joseph (ankle), punter Shane Lechler (biceps), tackle Derek Newton (knee) and nose tackle Ryan Pickett (back).|
Safety Danieal Manning (hamstring) was the only player on the report deemed questionable, while tight end Garrett Graham (ankle) and outside linebacke Jadeveon Clowney (knee) were ruled out. Clowney's disappointing rookie season has come to an end this week, as the team placed him on season-ending injured reserve and will undergo another surgery on his right knee.
|When Brian Cushing is healthy, he's a terror for opponents and a stud for Fantasy owners. Problem is, he doesn't have a stellar track record of staying on the field over the last two seasons, missing 11 games in 2012 with a torn ACL and nine games in 2013 with a broken leg and torn LCL. In the past we've suggested he's worth the mid-round risk as a No. 2 Fantasy linebacker but we can't buy into that any further. Because there's no promise he'll play even 10 games, Fantasy owners shouldn't put much into Cushing. A mid- to late-round pick is about what Cushing is worth in drafts this summer.
