Texans vs. Patriots injury report: both teams relatively healthy heading into divisional round

USA TODAY Sports

Both the Texans and the Patriots are relatively healthy heading into their Divisional Round playoff game in Foxborough.

The Texans and the Patriots took the field today to prepare for their Divisional Round matchup in Foxborough on Sunday afternoon, which is a rematch of the two teams' Week 14 game, which the Patriots won by a score of 42-14. According to the injury reports, both teams are relatively healthy as well, which will be important for both sides as the winner will take on the Broncos or the Ravens in the AFC Championship game.

For the Texans, the only player that didn't practice in some capacity on Wednesday was backup cornerback Alan Ball, who is suffering from a foot injury. Owen Daniels was limited in practice due to shoulder injury, but he will likely play on Sunday. The most important players on the injury report, such as cornerback Johnathan Joseph and others, however, all practiced fully.

For the Patriots, no players have been ruled out and there wasn't a single player that was held out of practice on Wednesday either. There were several players, however, that were limited in practice, including Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Jerod Mayo and Wes Welker. These players are likely considered probable, however.

The Patriots are looking to recreate the results of their Week 14 win over the Texans at home, while Houston is looking to get firing on all cylinders to propel themselves to their first AFC Championship game.
