Texans coaches are concerned with three players suffering from injuries -- offensive tackle Duane Brown (turf toe), receiver Andre Johnson (concussion) and free safety Ed Reed (hip). Brown, who's wearing a walking boot because of a sore toe, could miss the Baltimore game. Johnson is expected back at practice Thursday and should start against the Ravens. As for Reed and his unofficial homecoming, nobody has a clue. Brown was injured in the victory over Tennessee but continued to play.

Eluding cornerbacks with quick moves or tossing them aside with a mean stiff arm, wide receiver Steve Smith has been busy establishing himself as the Ravens' top offensive weapon through two games. Smith has been thrown to a team-high 25 times heading into Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, making 13 catches for 189 yards and a touchdown. Signed to a three-year, $11 million contract in March, the five-time Pro Bowl selection quickly has become the featured wide receiver that Andre Johnson was in Gary Kubiak's Houston Texans offense.

Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak can't say definitively at this point that Ed Reed will play Sunday against his former team. However, he said in a conference call with Ravens' reporters today that the safety is “as close to playing as [he has] been.” “His progress has been really good,” Kubiak said. “It was a tough decision [last] Sunday because I think he was very, very close, but we decided to go in the other direction. We'll see where we're at. It's a day-to-day deal.

Texans fans might be angry at former Texan Bernard Pollard, and some of Andre Johnson's teammates probably are, too. But Johnson, speaking for the first time Friday since the high and hard sideline tackle by Pollard deep in Titans territory Sunday forced him to go through the NFL's concussion protocol, said there's nothing to be angry about. Johnson, 32, expected to start in Baltimore on Sunday after receiving clearance from an independent doctor, doesn't believe Pollard was trying to injure him. No malice on play Johnson said what gave him blurred vision and a migraine was "my head (slamming)

The Ravens aren't the only team preparing for the rest of 2012 without Ray Lewis. The Houston Texans, Sunday's opponent, must also adjust their game plan on attacking a Ravens defense that will rely on Jameel McClain, Dannell Ellerbe, Brendon Ayanbadejo and perhaps Albert McClellan to fill the void created by the absence of the 13-time Pro Bowl inside linebacker, who tore his right triceps in Sunday's 31-29 win against the Dallas Cowboys. Houston can empathize with the Ravens after losing inside linebacker Brian Cushing in a win against the New York Jets on Oct. 8 with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Packers (9-1) @ Lions (6-4) -- After losing two in a row, the Lions will be scrambling for a wild-card berth on Thanksgiving. The Packers are playing for home-field advantage in the NFC. Texans (5-5) @ Browns (6-4) -- The Texans are a different team with Andre Johnson. The Browns, legitimate playoff contenders, are just different.

Three things that need to go right … 1. Terrell Suggs continues to sizzle. The Ravens linebacker proved he could take over a game Sunday night against Pittsburgh. He should dominate again against left tackle Duane Brown, who has allowed 24 ½ sacks the past three seasons. 2. Contain wide receiver Andre Johnson. The Ravens have a history of quieting Houston's top target, holding him to 11 receptions, 136 yards and no touchdowns in two meetings. A high ankle sprain is keeping Johnson from playing at full strength.

FUTURE IS NOW FOR COWBOYS With the Eagles up next, the Cowboys' eighth loss effectively ended Bill Parcells' playoff pipe dream. Dallas wasn't going to do anything in the postseason, anyway, which begs the question, why not Drew Henson? HELP WANTED The Patriots need to get CBs Ty Law and Tyrone Poole healthy for the postseason because their makeshift secondary won't hold up. END OF LINE As great as RB Eddie George has been, he needs to take a hint from his de-activation in Dallas yesterday.

Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak said five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Andre Johnson (right hamstring) is out for Sunday's contest against the Ravens. Speaking on a conference call with Baltimore media Wednesday morning, Kubiak mentioned Johnson's status while discussing the reasoning behind acquiring former Ravens wide receiver Derrick Mason from the New York Jets Tuesday night. Kubiak said the timetable for Johnson's return is still undefined. “He's day-to-day,” Kubiak said.

Derrick Mason will be playing at M&T Bank Stadium Sunday for the second time in three weeks. The Houston Chronicle is reporting that the Houston Texans, who play the Ravens this weekend, have acquired the veteran wide receiver from the New York Jets for a conditional draft pick. The move makes plenty of sense because Andre Johnson, the Texans' star receiver, is out with a hamstring injury, and Mason had clearly fallen out of favor in New York. Mason played just five snaps in the Jets' 30-21 loss to the New England Patriots last Sunday as rookie Jeremy Kerley took over third receiver duties.

Andre Johnson didn't earn five Pro Bowl invites and a reputation as being one of the most dangerous wide receivers in the NFL by being a wallflower. But there's no denying that the Houston Texans is off to the quietest start of his 10-year career. Through six games, the 31-year-old Johnson has caught 25 passes for 358 yards and two touchdowns. The number of receptions and receiving yards are the lowest to open a season in which he has played the first six contests. Houston coach Gary Kubiak conceded that the team has trimmed about 20 snaps per game from Johnson's usual rotation in an effort to keep him healthy for the entire season, but Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees said he's not buying that as the sole reason for Johnson's reduced production.

Wide receiver Jacoby Jones, who signed a two-year deal earlier this month, is excited to join a Ravens team that knocked his former team, the Houston Texans, out of the playoffs in January. “Who wouldn't take this opportunity to come play for this team?” the 27-year-old said. “It's always good for a breath of fresh air, something new, so I'm taking my breaths slowly but surely.” Jones has started in 21 of his 75 career games, making 127 receptions for 1,741 yards and 11 touchdowns.

In many ways, this season was a new frontier for the Houston Texans, who captured their first AFC South title, earned their first postseason berth, and then cemented their first playoff win with a 31-10 rout of the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday evening. So reaching the AFC divisional round is quite an accomplishment for this franchise, but just making an appearance against the Ravens on Sunday isn't the objective, according to Houston wide receiver Andre Johnson. “We want to win,” he said during a conference call Wednesday with Baltimore media.

While there is no timetable for the return of Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, many reports have the five-time Pro Bowl selection at least missing Sunday's game against the Ravens and likely the Oct. 23 game against the Tennessee Titans. Johnson underwent surgery last week to repair his injured hamstring, which would suggest at least a few weeks on the shelf. But Houston coach Gary Kubiak wouldn't rule out Johnson during his weekly news conference Monday. “I don't know,” Kubiak said in comments distributed by the Texans.

The Texans don't expect Jacoby Jones to be as good as Andre Johnson. That's not the issue. Even at his best, Jones is nowhere close. Almost no one in the NFL is. From the moment Johnson got hurt, the Texans knew everything they do on offense would be more difficult. They guessed Arian Foster might have less room to run and Matt Schaub might have less time to throw and that they'd have less margin for error across the board. But the thing that both excites and frustrates them about Jones is that he can and should be so much better than he has been the last two weeks.

When the Ravens defeated the Houston Texans, 29-14, on Oct. 16, Houston was forced to play without wide receiver Andre Johnson, who missed the game because of a strained hamstring. Ed Reed is aware that the defense dodged a bullet with Johnson's absence. “Different ballgame with Andre playing,” the eight-time Pro Bowl free safety said of Sunday's rematch in the AFC divisional round at M&T Bank Stadium. “Me and Andre played in school [at the University of Miami] together, and we won a national championship together.

We are into the nitty-gritty of the fantasy playoffs, so let's get down to business with some injury updates, a few waiver-wire pickups if you're desperate, and more. If your squad needs help, shoot me a note. And feel free to leave your fantasy sob stories in the comments section if your team has already been dismissed. Down goes DeMarco Murray: This is a huge blow if you own Murray, who was a waiver-wire All-Star this season and one of the most productive fantasy players over the past two months.
