Slaton, Davis Injury Updates

A few injury updates on the Texans. reported that Andre Davis, according to Gary Kubiak, “is still up in the air.” His hip and tailbone injuries will likely keep him out for the preseason.  Kubiak said on Davis:

“We’ve been told by some (doctors) that he could possibly make it back in a certain period of time.  Other guys don’t feel that way. We’re trying to weigh all the information, talk to Andre. When we cut to our final 53, we’ll have to take all that into consideration.”

Danny Clark’s strained knee injury is along the way, but Kubiak said if he were to play today (Monday),”no way he’s playing.  Kubiak said, “So we’ll see.” Clark is planned to help the Texans fill-in at linebacker during Cushing’s absence.

Steve Slaton, too, is out of commission.  On Monday he was seen on the sidelines in a walking boot while dealing with turf toe.  Slaton expects to be ready to play Week 1 at Reliant against the Colts. Kris Brown joined Slaton on the sidelines Monday as he’s dealing with plantar fasciitis. He played through the injury that strains every movement of the foot against the Cowboys this past Saturday.  Kubiak expects Brown to be ready to go again Thursday.
