HOUSTON Houston Texans left guard Wade Smith missed practice on Sunday morning after feeling sick when he arrived at the stadium.

He came in sick this morning, we ve sent him to the doctor, said Kubiak.

Smith is the second player to miss time because of an illness. Texans TE Garrett Graham has been out the first 3 practices as well.

Hopefully we don t have something going around, said Kubiak.

Graham was expected to return to Reliant Stadium on Sunday night and Kubiak believes he should be ready to go by the middle of the week.

He lost some weight and it s been a pretty rough go on him, said Kubiak. He s fine, it s just going to take some time and we ll get him back.

As for other injury concerns, rookie OLB Sam Montgomery was at practice, but was in a walking boot after injuring his ankle earlier in the week. He is listed as day-to-day.
