The Texans won't have one of their rotational pass rushers for the divisional round.

Receiver Nico Collins also did not practice on Thursday as a rest day.

Defensive end Will Anderson (ankle), defensive tackle Maliek Collins (hip), defensive end Jonathan Greenard (ankle), linebacker Denzel Perryman (ribs), defensive tackle Sheldon Rankin (ribs/shoulder), receiver Robert Woods (hip), cornerback Kris Boyd (hamstring), linebacker Blake Cashman (knee), guard Dieter Eiselen (illness), linebacker Christian Harris (calf), and receiver John Metchie (foot) are all off the injury report and set to play.
