The Houston Texans running back Dameon Pierce is expected to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, a source familiar with the matter revealed on Saturday night. The running back was listed as questionable for the game due to suffering an ankle injury.
Pierce’s inclusion in Sunday’s game will be a major relief for the Texans. Appearing in seven games this season, Pierce has rushed for 327 yards and managed a touchdown on 109 carries. He is second on the team in rushing behind Devin Singletary with 471 yards.
The Texans have enjoyed a strong start to the current season, winning three straight games to ensure four wins out of five. This puts the team just one game behind the Jaguars for first place in the AFC South, meaning that Sunday’s game could result in the Texans overtaking them with a win.
