Indianapolis Colts cornerback Vontae Davis appears to be heading back into the lineup for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.

Davis practiced Wednesday, albeit with a non-contact red jersey, because he's still going through the NFL's concussion protocol. He missed last weekend's game against the Cleveland Browns because he still hadn't been cleared from the concussion suffered against the Washington Redskins on Nov. 30. The plan, according to coach Chuck Pagano, is for Davis to practice again Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

This is important because it will impact the Houston receivers. Davis covered Andre Johnson for most of the previous matchup, but that was before Hopkins established himself as the Texans' top receiver. Johnson is recovering from his own concussion and is iffy for Sunday. if he's out, Davis will very likely spend a lot of time covering Hopkins.

Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) did not practice Wednesday. This is typical for Foster. He’s a solid RB1 against Indianapolis.

Andre Johnson (concussion) considered day-to-day

Texans WR Andre Johnson must undergo the league’s five-step concussion protocol before his status for Sunday's game at Indianapolis can be determined.

“That’s exactly where it stands though,” head coach Bill O’Brien said Monday. “He has to pass the concussion test to be able to be cleared. I would say that’s definitely a day-to-day thing.”

Fantasy Impact:

If Johnson can't start, O'Brien said wide receiver DeVier Posey is a candidate to play. Posey has been inactive for each game this season. Johnson left early in the second quarter after suffering a helmet-to-helmet hit by Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith. The All-Pro receiver headed for the locker room after being examined on the field by team’s medical staff.

Sunday seemed to be the first time in a while when there was a conscious effort to get Jags WR Cecil Shorts going early. He was targeted on the first three plays of the game.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley was vague when asked about the start, saying the plan was to get everyone involved. However, QB Blake Bortles acknowledged the script called for Shorts to be the primary read on those plays.

The plan made sense. Houston entered the game ranked 29th defending the pass. Its secondary was vulnerable.

Fantasy Impact:

Shorts should have had a productive day against the Texans. Bortles targeted Shorts 10 times, but the end result was a stat line that’s hard to duplicate in its hideousness, the story said - Shorts caught two passes for 3 yards ... on 10 targets. The piece makes it seem like Shorts' opportunities are slipping away. With a younger crop of WRs, it's possible Shorts won't be part of the growing process next year. He has four games left on his rookie contract and has also been hindered by injuries this season.

Andre Johnson suffers concussion

Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson left Sunday’s game against the Jaguars at EverBank Field due to a concussion.

Johnson went down near Jacksonville’s end zone after being hit in the head at the four-yard line. He lost his helmet on the play.

Johnson, 33, needed eight catches Sunday to reach 1,000 career receptions, tying Marvin Harrison for the fastest in NFL history to reach the mark. Johnson caught four balls for 17 yards before leaving the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Johnson has suffered two concussions in less than two years. He received a concussion Week 2 against Tennessee last season. We'll continue to update his status leading up to Week 15.
