"What's wrong with Owen? Owen's fine. He's got a sore hamstring," Kubiak said.
We'll take his word for it. Kubiak also hinted that linebacker Brooks Reed (groin) would play "more snaps than he played" in a Week 16 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Any help the Texans can get at linebacker will be welcomed.
The Texans are still fighting for a playoff bye in the AFC.
A win over the Colts would secure the top seed. Losing Sunday's finale might be deadly, because the Denver Broncos and even the New England Patriots could drop Houston into the third seed if both teams win and the Texans fall to Andrew Luck and friends.
