Texans CB Johnathan Joseph has been a full participant during training camp.

Joseph was sidelined this offseason following arthroscopic knee surgery, but he is already back to full strength. "I was full-go, I've been 100 percent for a while," Joseph said. "I'm pleased with where I'm at right now." Evan at 32, Joseph remains one of the better corners in the league.
Aug 1 - 11:23 AM

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph is recovering from "minor arthroscopic" knee surgery, but has already resumed running.

"Minor" surgeries often become more major as the offseason drags on, but there's no reason to doubt the team's account in this instance. Joseph suffered a knee injury in late November, but didn't miss any games. Now 32, Joseph remained highly effective in 2015.

Texans LCB Johnathan Joseph left Week 11 against the Jets with a knee injury and is questionable to return.

Texans signed LCB Johnathan Joseph to a three-year, $22 million contract through 2017.

Joseph, 31, was set to count $12.25 million against the cap in the final year of his deal. He gets two years added onto it and $11.5 million guaranteed. The extension had as much to do with rewarding the veteran as it did with knocking down that cap number. The Texans now have Joseph and RCB Kareem Jackson under contract for the immediate future. First-round CB Kevin Johnson can be eased in on sub-packages. Joseph was PFF's No. 20 cover corner last season.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Johnathan Joseph (toe surgery) will start Sunday against Washington.

Wed, Sep 3, 2014 07:48:00 PM

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (toe surgery) still isn't 100 percent, but is ready for the start of the regular season.

Joseph at less than 100 percent could be a scary thought for Texans fans, as he's been extremely inconsistent throughout his three years in Houston, especially as he played through his toe issue in 2013. He's again starting opposite Kareem Jackson.

The New York Daily News believes the Jets could have interest in trading for Texans CB Johnathan Joseph.

The Jets are desperate for corner depth with Dee Milliner (ankle) sidelined, leaving Darrin Walls and Antonio Allen to start in base sets. Joseph missed the entire preseason recovering from toe surgery, but is expected to be ready for Week 1. His $11.25 million cap number makes any trade unlikely.
