The Texans are supposed to have tight end Owen Daniels back for the Baltimore game Dec. 13, and that's a good thing because they could be losing Joel Dreessen.
Dreessen, starting in place of Daniels in recent weeks, took a hard shot to his left rib cage early in the game and was in great pain afterward. It's possible he has a cracked rib or two.
"It was so painful there at the end I was nauseous," he said. "But you want to win so bad you keep playing."
