With Andre Johnson out, the Texans need all the offensive weapons that they can get on the field.  Even against the Colts.

So it’s great news for Houston that Owen Daniels will be available on Thursday night despite not practicing during the week. Daniels is Houston’s leading receiver this year and is struggling with a knee injury.

Inactive for Houston:  quarterback Jeff Garcia, tight end Garrett Graham,  guard Mike Brisiel, tackle Andrew Gardner, cornerback Sherrick McManis, safety Troy Nolan, and wideout Andre Johnson.

Dallas Clark is out for the Colts, as expected.  Also out: Peyton Manning, tackle Quinn Ojinnaka, defensive end Mario Addison, linebacker Phillip Wheeler, linebacker Scott Lutrus, and cornerback Mike Holmes.

    I wonder how effective he will be tonight. Atleast the Texans have one guy on the field who can catch the ball. Lets hope the rinning game is moving the ball tonight.

    I hope hes the main weapon because i stand to make the title game (the only thing in fantasy that matters at all. I cant stand people worrying about their lineups. Keep it to yourself nobody cares)
