Raiders vs. Texans Injury Report: Depleted Secondary to Face Johnsonless Receiving Corp

The Raiders secondary continues to be banged, nicked, dinged and crappy. The good news is that Huff has been practicing, and will likely play on Sunday. The bad news is that Chris Johnson still hasn't returned to the practice field and his backup Chimdi Chekwa tried to practice Wednesday but his tweaked hamstring suffered a nick. Don't expect Chekwa on the field on Sunday.

The other good news here is that injuries in the secondary will not be nearly as big a concern in this week. The Texans will be without Andre Johnson. Johnson has supplied nearly all of the Texans wide receiver production this season.

The Texans only have three other receivers to register a catch this season. Those three have combined for 12 catches for 156 yards and one touchdown.

The Raiders may also be without a fullback. Marcel Reece and Richard Gordon have both missed Wednesday and Thursday's practice. Manase Tonga may get a practice squad call-up.

Arian Foster is back to full strength for the Texans which is a good thing for them because both of his backups have yet to practice this week. Check out NFL.com's full injury report after the jump.
