Texans' Graham questionable, Posey out
By Tania Ganguli
HOUSTON -- Texans interim head coach Wade Phillips said earlier in the week that it wasn't looking good for tight end Garrett Graham to play on Sunday.
Today, Phillips said after practice that Graham would be listed as questionable on the roster. Phillips has said prior that Graham's situation this week mirrored last week. Graham was listed as questionable in Indianapolis, too, and didn't play. He's been dealing with a hamstring injury.
Graham took over as the starter at tight end after Owen Daniels suffered a non-displaced fibula fracture in Week 5. Daniels is still not available to the Texans, though he could have been removed from short-term injured reserve two weeks ago.
If Graham doesn't play, rookie Ryan Griffin will start. Griffin led the team with six catches for 62 yards in Indianapolis.
The Texans will be without receiver DeVier Posey, who suffered a high ankle sprain on Sunday, Phillips said. And of course, as Phillips announced on Wednesday, quarterback Case Keenum will be out. He spent all week with a splint on his thumb.
