Did not participate

DL Zach Allen (hand), WR Robbie Anderson (back), S Chris Banjo (concussion), LB Zaven Collins (calf), RB James Conner (shin), CB Antonio Hamilton (hip), WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee), DL Jonathan Ledbetter (knee), QB Colt McCoy (concussion)

This list is the same as Wednesday, minus one player who was upgraded to limited.

Limited participation

OL Kelvin Beachum (knee, ankle), DL Leki Fotu (shoulder), CB Josh Jackson (hamstring), OL Billy Price (knee), LB Tanner Vallejo (knee, wrist), DL J.J. Watt (groin), CB Marco Wilson (neck)

Beachum was upgraded, suggesting he is set to start the finale, meaning he will be the only offensive player to start all 17 games.

Watt was a new addition to the injury report, but since he is playing for the final time in his career, it is hard to imagine that he will not play.


Full participation

WR Marquise Brown (wrist), LB Isaiah Simmons (ankle)

Simmons was upgraded after being limited in Wednesday’s walkthrough.
