Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels is expected to be a game-time decision after his limited participation in Friday's practice. Daniels has been nursing a hip injury and did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. "He was very limited today," Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. "He did some of the individual stuff today early in practice, took a couple reps. Still very sore. We've got a little extra time because we play Sunday night, so we'll continue to give him every opportunity go get there. I know it's very important to him, but yet he's got a way to go."
If Daniels is held out Sunday, backups James Casey and Garrett Graham would take over. Daniels is having a great year, comparable to his 2008 season which really put him on the map. For our fantasy purpose, if he have a good backup, it might be best to look in his direction even if Daniels is ready to play. The Texans are matchup against the Chicago Bears this week and even a healthy Daniels could have been shut down by that defense.
