Stuff that matters

Texans running backs Duke Johnson (neck) and C.J. Prosise (ankle) were both downgraded from limited to non-participants in Thursday’s practice.

Cornerback Cornell Armstrong (hamstring) was upgraded to limited from a non-participant on Wednesday. Running back David Johnson was also full after he had a rest day on Wednesday.

Wide receiver Brandin Cooks (neck), cornerback Phillip Gaines (knee), and cornerback John Reid (neck) remained limited. Tight end Pharaoh Brown (concussion) was full.
