Texans' Jon Greenard didn't practice Thursday, Justin Britt returns

Texans starting defensive end Jon Greenard didn't practice Thursday due to a lingering foot injury.

Greenard was limited Wednesday before being downgraded Thursday.

Greenard leads the Texans with a career-high eight sacks.

Defensive tackle Maliek Collins and cornerback Terrance Mitchell returned to practice from non-COVID-19 illnesses and participated fully. Wide receiver Nico Collins (thigh) participated fully.

Center Justin Britt returned to practice from a knee injury, participating on a limited basis, along with tight end Brevin Jordan (hand).

Defensive end Jacob Martin (knee) participated fully.

Texans offensive guard Justin McCray participated fully as he's on track to clear concussion protocol after being sidelined for one game.

The veteran blocker, as long as he remains free of symptoms and passes baseline neurological exams, is set to return to the starting lineup at right offensive guard. Max Scharping started against the Indianapolis Colts with McCray out.

“It helps a lot," Texans offensive coordinator Tim Kelly said of McCray being back. "He’s a versatile guy, he’s smart, he can play in multiple positions. So, again, he’s a guy that has some position flexibility that allows us to get our five best guys on the field. It’s good to have him back.”
