Texans' Cooks, Conley, David Johnson dealing with non-COVID illness

The spread of non-COVID illnesses through the Texans' locker room that prompted them to cancel practice Wednesday as a precautionary measure has affected several key players.

That includes wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Chris Conley and starting running back David Johnson being listed as not practicing on an estimated injury report.

Cooks leads the Texans with 62 receptions for 704 yards and three touchdowns.

Several players have been dealing with flu symptoms in recent weeks, including wide receiver Davion Davis.

Meanwhile, also listed as not being able to practice if it had been held: wide receiver Danny Amendola (arthroscopic knee surgery, torn meniscus), safety Terrence Brooks (hamstring), defensive end DeMarcus Walker (hamstring), center-guard Justin McCray, who's in the concussion protocol and center Cole Toner (illness) and quarterback Deshaun Watson (non-injury reasons-personal matter).

Defensive ends Jon Greenard (foot) and Jacob Martin (shin) were listed as limited.

The Texans' offensive line is expected to be comprised of left tackle Tytus Howard, left guard Lane Taylor, right guard Max Scharping and right tackle Charlie Heck on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. The Texans are hopeful of veteran center Justin Britt returning as soon as this week. If he can't go after returning to practice last week when he was designated for return from injured reserve, then rookie Jimmy Morrissey would start his fourth game in a row.
