Texans’ Jonathan Joseph, DeAndre Hopkins, Lamar Miller all questionable vs. Eagles
The Houston Texans have some key injuries for this upcoming week against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. According to Charean Williams, cornerback Johnathan Joseph is dealing with an illness and is questionable to play this Sunday. While wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and running back Lamar Miller are both questionable with respective ankle injuries. The Texans will need each of these key players in a very significant matchup.
Hopkins has shown up on the Texans’ injury report a lot this season, but he has yet to miss a game. Hopkins has been as fantastic as ever this season and continues to prove that he is a top receiver in the league. The former Clemson star will more than likely see the field on Sunday against a very beatable Philadelphia secondary. Philadelphia has been without a majority of their starting cornerbacks this season, and opposing offenses have taken advantage of their misfortunes.
Lamar Miller, on the other hand, was held out of action for the remainder of this past Saturday’s game against the New York Jets after suffering an injury early on in the game. Miller has been a solid aspect of the Texans offense this season, but they are a pass-first team and quarterback Deshaun Watson has been a more efficient run producer than Miller. Miller is always good for a few monster games each season, but he lacks consistency and dependability. The Texans don’t use him very often on passing downs either. However, Miller does provide strength for an already powerful offense.
