Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Miller should be able to play against the Colts, but he’s certainly a risk for an in-game setback given how beat up he’s been recently.

Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Fuller should be able to play through the injury. He’s had a couple of productive weeks in a row and is worth a look given his favorable matchup with the Colts.

Texans RB Lamar Miller dealing with rib injury

Texans RB Lamar Miller left the game in the first quarter with a ribs injury, but returned to action later in the first half. He wound up with 22 yards on 14 carries.

Related players: Alfred Blue, Jonathan Grimes

Fantasy Impact:

Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes saw action and produced much better results. We can assume Miller should be fine for Week 14 but ribs can be tricky and it could very well mean a reduced role. It's something to monitor this week.

Osweiler: Texans 'close to exploding as an offense'

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

There have been plenty of games this season when the play of quarterback Brock Osweiler was a major negative for the Texans, but he turned in one of his better games of the year in Green Bay on Sunday.

Osweiler didn’t turn the ball over while completing 22-of-35 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown in the 21-13 loss. While that wasn’t enough for the team to get a win or score more than two touchdowns for the second time this season, it was enough for Osweiler to say after the game that he feels the offense is close to catching fire.

“I feel like we’re very close to exploding as an offense,” Osweiler said, via ESPN.com. “We are three, four plays away from changing multiple football games. Because of that, I don’t think we can get discouraged. … We’re tired of being close. We really are, as a team. We’re all able to see it on the film. We see it on the film every single week that we’re so close to turning that corner.”

Fantasy Impact:

The Texans are in Indianapolis next Sunday and close out the year in Tennessee, so it would be a fine time for Osweiler and company to turn that corner once and for all, the story pointed out.

The Texans initially listed the rookie WR as questionable, but they ruled him out at the start of the second half.
