Houston Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph said he plans to play in the team's season opener Sunday against the Redskins, according to reports.

Joseph, who is listed as a starter on Houston's depth chart, sat out the preseason and was limited in preseason practice after having surgery in December to repair a torn ligament in his toe. 

Joseph was asked if he was completely healthy.

"Somewhere along the lines," he said, according to ESPN.com. "...You're never 100 percent in this league."
