Houston Texans’ Tidbits:

Quintin Demps:  The dreaded hamstring that has plagued him for the past few weeks has flared up again.  This time, it was last week against the Raiders, causing him to exit the game early.  He has been limited in practice this week and has been ruled as questionable for tonight.  If Demps can’t go, Eddie Pleasant will be at the ready to take over.  I’d expect him to give it a go just to test it out.

John Simon He’s still reeling from that chest injury that he’s battling since the start of the second-half of the season.  It’s bad enough to where he’s been ruled out of games for the past weeks.  He was limited in practice this week and his status has been upgraded to questionable.  It wouldn’t be surprising if he sat this one out too but we’ll see.  If he can’t go, Brennan Scarlett will be around to step into his stead.

And here’s the injury report for the New England Patriots:

WR Danny Amendola, Ankle

WR Malcolm Mitchell, Knee

Mitchell has been ruled as QUESTIONABLE.  Amendola is PROBABLE.

New England Patriots Tidbits:

Malcolm Mitchell:  Mitchell has been dealing with a knee injury for the past few weeks and has been limited in practice as a result.  The rookie wide out has been out since Week 17 and I’d imagine the Pats were hoping the bye week for the playoffs to rest would help him.  Mitchell plays behind Julian Edelman so if Mitchell can’t go, Michael Floyd will be prepared to fill-in for him.

The Houston Texans hit the road to take on the Patriots for the AFC Divisional Game at Gillette Stadium.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. CST.

The game will be televised on CBS and broadcast on 610 SportsRadio AM/100.3 FM (KILT) & ESPN Deportes 1180 (KGOL) in Spanish.

Go Houston Texans.
