Daniels Practices & Hopes to Play Monday Night

HoustonTexans.com reported that Owen Daniels was back at practice Monday, and head coach Gary Kubiak has declared the Pro Bowl tight end day-to-day.  After practice, Daniels said he felt great, and if it weren’t for the Thursday night game last week, he would have played on Sunday.

“It feels great,” he said after practice. “I didn’t feel anything today. I actually stretched out for a ball that the trainers were saying I should’ve been a little more careful. It’s hard when it feels good. It’s good to be able to stretch out like that and run and feel normal.”

“I think if that game last week was on Sunday, I probably would’ve played,” Daniels said. “The extra days definitely helped out. There’s always some uncertainty right when you think you’re feeling good, but when it comes to hammies they tell you to wait another week. So maybe it was a blessing in disguise that we did play on Thursday, so I’ll be feeling really good for next Monday.”

Head coach Gary Kubiak, who said Daniels was “pretty darn close” to playing Thursday, said that he hopes Daniels can suit up Monday against the Ravens at Reliant Stadium.

“I’ve got to see if he’s ready to play first.  I’m just hoping that he’s available to play and we go from there, but right now it’s a day-to-day (question).”
