Owen Daniels cleared to return to Texans

A visit to Dr. James Andrews today proved fruitful to Texans tight end Owen Daniels, who has been cleared to return to action for the first time since suffering a torn ACL on November 1.

Owen’s been cleared; totally healthy,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said, per Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com. “I was out on the practice field during special teams and he called [head athletic trainer Geoff Kaplan] and we talked to Dr. Andrews, and boy, he’s fired up. It’s great for our team.”

Daniels won’t play in the preseason, but he is expected to return to practice next week and play in the Texans’ Week One game against the Colts.

Kubiak said he’s proud of the work Daniels has done to rehab his knee and glad to get Daniels back on the field.

“He’s a fine player,” Kubiak said. “He’s a good young man. He’s what we stand for as a team, and for our players to see what he’s been through and then to see how disappointing it was for him to have a setback and now he’s still going to be there opening day, just tells you a lot about what he’s all about.”

    I just wish he would have taken HGH like wes welker did.Then he would have been at full speed for week 1.

    It’s too bad Daniels is always having knee issues because he has earned a contract extension, but has not gotten it for this exact reason.
