    According to Ian Rapoport of Youth D.J. Reader Jersey , and updating the rumor that first circulated last night, the Texans are finalizing a trade with the Broncos that will bring WR Demaryius Thomas to Houston.Thomas has spent all nine of his NFL seasons with the Broncos and has been a centerpiece with the team since he arrived as a first-round pick in 2010.Thomas has 36 receptions so far this season, accounting for 402 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He’ll have a chance to exact revenge against his former team as early as this Sunday when the Texans visit the Broncos in Denver.What are your thoughts on this near trade, BRB? Are the Texans making the right move in giving Deshaun Watson another weapon?UPDATE:John McClain says the cost is a fourth-round pick.UPDATE II:If the trade does become official Youth Ryan Griffin Jersey , the financial ramifications for the Texans end at paying Thomas $4.5 million for the remainder of the season.UPDATE III:Adam Schefter says the Broncos are sending Thomas and a seventh-rounder to Houston in exchange for a fourth-round pick.UPDATE IV:Slight revision to the terms of the trade...the Texans aren’t simply getting Denver’s seventh-round pick; the teams are swapping seventh-round picks (presumably in the 2019 NFL Draft).UPDATE V:The trade is official, and Demaryius Thomas is a Houston Texan. Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel said Friday he expects to play both starting quarterback Marcus Mariota and backup Blaine Gabbert in Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.Mariota didn't throw during the open portion of practice Friday for the second straight day and was listed as limited and questionable on the team's final injury report.

We anticipate both of those guys playing in the game. We're going to have to do a lot of things to win this game, and I would anticipate both of those guys playing at some point in time. Marcus is going to do everything he can to get ready. Every player is going to do everything they can to get ready on Sunday. That's what our job is as pro football players and coaches Womens Julién Davenport Jersey , to exhaust all resources, time and energy to get ready to play in the game."Whoever plays at quarterback will be playing behind a makeshift offensive line missing left tackle Taylor Lewan, who sustained a concussion in the Dolphins game and didn't practice all week. Right tackle Jack Conklin, still recovering from anterior cruciate ligament surgery on his left knee in January , is out as well. Conklin's replacement - right tackle Dennis Kelly - was absent from practice Thursday and Friday due to illness.There is some good news for the Titans on the defensive side of the ball. Vrabel said he expects the team's top two draft picks - linebackers Rashaan Evans (hamstring) and Harold Landry (ankle) - to play Sunday. Both were injured before the season and missed the Dolphins game.Landry, Kelly, linebacker Derrick Morgan (knee) and tight end Luke Stocker (calf) are all listed as questionable on the Titans' official injury report.Safety Kendrick Lewis has been ruled out for the second straight week with a foot injury.
