CSN Houston believes CB Johnathan Joseph could be a salary cap casualty.

Joseph is coming off an injury-marred season and has an $11.25 million 2014 cap number. He still managed to grade out as a top-25 corner by Pro Football Focus and is likely to return despite his high salary. Houston would clear $3.75 million in cap savings by cutting Joseph, but leave $7.5 million in dead money.

Texans placed CB Johnathan Joseph on injured reserve with a toe injury, ending his season.

This was simply a procedural move. Joseph had already been ruled out for Week 17 with a torn ligament in his toe and needs surgery. He's due $7.5 million in 2014 after an injury-riddled season. Joseph will turn 30 in April.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph is done for the season with a torn ligament in his toe.

Joseph requires surgery after suffering the injury in Sunday's loss to the Broncos. Joseph had been dealing with toe issues since September. It caps what's been an injury-marred and inconsistent season for the eight-year veteran. Joseph has graded out as the No. 21 cornerback in Pro Football Focus' ratings. It's unclear if he'll be ready for the Texans' offseason program. Signed through 2015, Joseph is due $7.5 million next season.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph exited Sunday's Week 16 game with a second-quarter foot injury.

Joseph suffered a groin injury last week. The increasingly injury-prone 29-year-old is not expected to return against the Broncos.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph suffered a groin injury in Sunday's loss.

He underwent an MRI on Monday, the results of which have yet to be revealed. For now, the Texans' No. 1 corner should be considered day to day. The timing of his injury couldn't be worse with the Texans set to host Peyton Manning and the Broncos in Week 16.

Johnathan Joseph (toe) is questionable for Week 4 against the Seahawks.

Joseph and Kareem Jackson (illness) returned to practice on a limited basis Friday. Both are expected to play this week despite being listed as questionable.

Texans starting CBs Johnathan Joseph (toe) and Kareem Jackson (illness) both missed their second consecutive practice on Thursday, but are expected to return on Friday.

They're expected to be fine for Sunday's showdown with the Seahawks. Both players are off to poor starts this season, and will face a major test in Russell Wilson.

Texans RCB Johnathan Joseph underwent double sports-hernia surgery after the season, but says he's back to 100 percent.

"With the groin issues and everything behind me and the sports hernia on both sides, I had both those fixed," Joseph said. "Now I have more pop, more explosion with my legs. I can run all day again. ... I'm having probably the best OTAs I've had in four or five years." Injured nearly all year, Joseph's play regressed sharply last season from his stellar 2011. He's a nice bounce-back candidate as long as he manages to stay healthy.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (hamstring, groin) told reporters Friday that he will definitely play on Monday Night Football at New England.

"I'm good to go," he said. Asked if he'll start, Joseph replied "No doubt. No doubt about it." Joseph figures to match up with Brandon Lloyd on the majority of Monday night's snaps, leaving Lloyd with a hazy Week 14 fantasy matchup.

Texans RCB Johnathan Joseph (hamstring, groin) will likely be a game-time decision for Monday's tilt in New England.

Coach Gary Kubiak said Joseph took close to half of the snaps in Thursday's practice and looked "very explosive." The Texans' injury-depleted secondary has surrendered an average of 368 yards to Chad Henne, Matthew Stafford, and Jake Locker the past three weeks.

Texans declared RCB Johnathan Joseph, ILB Bradie James, RT Derek Newton, CB Alan Ball, OLB Brooks Reed, G Antoine Caldwell, and G Cody White inactive for Week 13 against the Titans.

Joseph is out with a hamstring injury, so Brice McCain will get the start at right corner. James has a hamstring injury as well, and Newton is dealing with a knee issue. Barrett Ruud will start in place of James, while Ryan Harris gets the start at right tackle.

Texans RCB Johnathan Joseph (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Titans.

Houston's pass defense has struggled mightily with Joseph out of the lineup this season, which upgrades Jake Locker and Kenny Britt's Week 13 fantasy matchups. The Texans will turn to raw Brandon Harris as their nickel back, with Kareem Jackson and Bruce McCain starting on the corners.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (hamstring) will be a game-time decision against the Titans.

Coach Gary Kubiak doesn't expect Joseph to practice before Friday, and the tea leaves suggest he'll sit out against Jake Locker and company. Playing without Joseph on Thanksgiving, the Texans allowed Matthew Stafford to throw for 441 yards.
