Texans TE Daniels ruled out for Sunday

Houston Texans tight end Owen Daniels has been ruled out for Sunday night's game at Chicago.

Daniels did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday before participating in a limited basis on Friday due to a hip injury suffered in last week's 21-9 victory over the Buffalo Bills.

Garrett Graham will get the start in place of Daniels.

Daniels leads the Texans with five touchdown catches, while his 37 receptions and 478 receiving yards rank second on the team this season.

Graham has 10 receptions for 122 yards and a touchdown through eight games this season.

Houston will also be without starting nose tackle Shaun Cody, who was ruled out on Friday with broken ribs and a punctured lung.

Cody has started seven of Houston's first eight games and totaled 13 tackles.
