HOUSTON (AP) - Already without Ed Reed while he recovers from offseason hip surgery, injuries sustained this weekend have left the Houston Texans thin at safety entering Sunday's third preseason game against New Orleans.

Safeties Shiloh Keo, Eddie Pleasant and rookie Orhian Johnson were all injured on Saturday against the Dolphins, leaving coach Gary Kubiak concerned about the group.

Things looked better on Monday when Kubiak said Johnson was fine and Keo was doing better and participated in some portions of practice. Pleasant remained out with a sprained knee.

Kubiak was worried on Sunday that the team might have to pick up another safety, but he now says that he believes the group will be OK since it looks as if only Pleasant is likely to miss this week's game.
