INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts could have their first-round draft pick back when they play the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Werner
Linebacker Bjoern Werner practiced on a limited basis Monday. He’s been out with a torn plantar fascia since Sept. 29. He has five tackles and 0.5 sacks this season.

“We’ll see how he comes in [Tuesday],” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “He felt good with what he did leaving the practice field and hopefully he comes in [Tuesday] morning and feels great and then amp it up a little more on Wednesday. Always see the glass half-full on that kind of thing.”

While Werner continues to work his way back, safety Delano Howell (neck) and cornerback Josh Gordy (groin) are both doubtful against the Texans. Cornerback Greg Toler (groin) and linebacker Cam Johnson (ankle) are day-to-day.
