The Houston Texans are entering their Sunday matchup with the Oakland Raiders with plenty of injury concerns, especially in the secondary. 

The Texans have ruled out wide receiver Will Fuller V, offensive tackle Tytus Howard, and offensive lineman Greg Mancz. 

Mancz has missed the past four games with a concussion and has not been out of the protocol since entering it after week three. 

Howard is working back from a partially torn MCL while Fuller is recovering from a hamstring injury he suffered last week in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts. 

The secondary remains a problem spot with their health, and their starting group is banged up. 

Starting cornerbacks Bradley Roby and Johnathan Joseph both are questionable heading into the game. 

Roby is more than likely not going to play with a hamstring injury while Joseph is nursing a hamstring and neck issue. 

Safety Tashaun Gipson is the hast the most ailments with a back, wrist, and hamstring injuries. Veteran safety Jahleel Addae will fill in for Gipson if he can't play against the Raiders. 

Also, the current starting right tackle Roderick Johnson is dealing with a neck issue he sustained last week against the Colts. Offensive tackle Dan Skipper will fill in for Johnson if he can not get on the field against the Raiders.
