The Texans don't plan to active running back Scottie Phillips from injured reserve this week.
Phillips is recovering from a high ankle sprain. He is expected to play again at some point this season, according to coach David Culley.
"I’m not really sure what the timetable is for that, but we do expect him to come off of it," Culley said. "He’s much, much better, but he’s not there yet.”
Phillips got hurt against the Miami Dolphins. Herushed for two yards on his only carry of the game.
Phillips has been active for three games this season, and he had more of a role in the wake of the Texans trading leading rusher Mark Ingram to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for a 2024 seventh-round draft pick.
A former undrafted free agent from Mississippi, Phillips has rushed for 13 yards on six carries this season with two receptions for nine yards.
