Tight end Owen Daniels said Wednesday he still hopes to return for a Dec. 5 game at Jacksonville.
Daniels last played Oct. 6 in a loss at San Francisco. After fracturing his right fibula, he was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return.
Through five weeks, Daniels was the #10 TE, so needy teams could find him useful if he can knock off the rust quickly in his return. Keep in mind that his QB has changed, so it may take some time to get on the same page. Case Keenum also likes to throw to his receivers more than did Matt Schaub. Garrett Graham's production has been a disappointment in Daniels's absence.
