Texans CB Joseph plans to sit out preseason opener with toe injury
Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph said he's not planning to play in Saturday's preseason opener at Arizona but expects to be ready for the start of the regular season.
Joseph, 30, had surgery in December to repair a torn ligament in his toe. The two-time Pro Bowler recorded 47 tackles and three interceptions over 15 starts last season.
Joseph said he did not suffer a setback in his rehabilitation. From the Houston Chronicle:
“I’m just taking it a day at a time, a week at a time,” Joseph said. “Just still working towards getting better, preparing myself for the season.”
On Tuesday, the Texans released their unofficial depth chart for Saturday's game
Houston, who finished with an NFL-low two wins in 2013, opens the upcoming season Sept. 7 against Washington.
