Will Texans QB CJ Stroud play against Colts? Reviewing the latest update from both camps ahead of crunch week 18 tie

This season, the Houston Texans have been one of the teams to beat under the tutelage of DaMeco Ryans. Their performances have grown increasingly stronger and the squad looks as cohesive as ever heading into the business end of the regular season.

With the likes of CJ Stroud in their ranks, the team looks like strong playoff contenders. However, their talismanic quarterback is himself a doubt heading into a crucial game against the Indianapolis Colts. Let’s find out more about his availability.

Will CJ Stroud play against Colts?

Texans fans see a whole other animal when CJ Stroud suits up. That’s been the story throughout the entire season, as the rookie sensation has taken the league by storm. Earning the praise for sporting greats like LeBron James, Stroud has stood up as one of the saviors in this resurgent Texans outfit, ready to use his skill and guile to take the team through to the playoffs.

Fortunately for the Texans faithful, the name of CJ Stroud does not feature on the injury list sent out by the Houston Texans heading into week 18 of the regular season. This means that the 22-year-old will be stepping onto the gridiron in arguably the most important game of their season so far.

The playoff situation for the Houston Texans is as precarious as ever. However, the equation is fairly simple; win and you’re in. That is exactly the mentality coach Ryans will expect from every member of the squad as they take on the Colts in their next game.

We’ve come into a great situation and right now is the time to pick up and make our chemistry better than ever,” said Stroud

He continued, “It’s like night and day from week 2 to now,” signifying the fact that the team has indeed grown as a whole and plays with a dynamic approach as opposed to a static one.
