Texans Injury Update: Brian Cushing, Arian Foster, Andre Johnson expected to play

The Houston Texans head into their week six contest against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday night on just three short days of rest. On Tuesday, veterans Brian Cushing, Arian Foster and Andre Johnson were all held out of practice, but Coach Bill O'Brien said not to worry and expects to have a "full complement of players" for the game, according to Dale Robertson of

O'Brien added he is erring on the side of caution with his veterans and rest is far more important than practice on such a short week. When asked specifically about Forster (hamstring) and Cushing (knee), O'Brien said they should be good to go.

Arian Foster has been dealing with the hamstring issue since training camp, but has taken the field the last two weeks. He had a superb game in week five rushing for 157 yards and adding two scores in Houston's overtime loss to the Cowboys.

It was reported that Brian Cushing was ruled out for Thursday's game, but according to Evan Koch on Twitter, it was reported in error:
Wide receiver Andre Johnson is officially listed as questionable as he continues to battle an ankle injury, but according to PFT, Johnson is expected to play and start on Thursday night.
