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

He went to the locker room about halfway through the second quarter. With Kareem Jackson (ankle) already sidelined, the Texans are now without their top two corners. Joseph did not record any tackles before exiting.

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 CB Johnathan Joseph exited Sunday's Week 13 game with an Achilles' injury.

We always get worried when players suffer "Achilles'" injuries without any descriptions. Joseph is considered questionable to return.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (concussion) has been cleared.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph left Sunday's Week 9 game against the Eagles in the first quarter with a concussion.

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

Joseph was limited in Wednesday's practice, but is expected to play this week at less than 100 percent. Jadeveon Clowney has also been cleared to start and is no longer listed on the Texans' injury report.

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.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (toe) was active for the start of camp.

Joseph sat out the offseason program recovering from surgery on a toe that bothered him all last season. Now healthy, Joseph will look to bounce back from his inconsistent 2013 campaign.

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (toe) is sitting out OTAs.

Joseph's toe was an issue for all of 2013 before landing him on injured reserve in Week 17. He underwent subsequent surgery. We'd expect he'll be ready for Week 1.
Tue, May 27, 2014 08:11:00 PM

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.
