The Texans face the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday in the first game on Saturday. Head coach Gary Kubiak has said he is worried that Dobbins may have to miss the game.

“I think he’s still a game-time decision,” Kubiak said. “(Yesterday) we wanted the reps to go to (ILB) Barrett (Ruud), and obviously we’ve got (ILB) Mister (Alexander) that we picked up who needs a ton of reps to get ready to play real quick. We’ll see where we’re at tomorrow, but we knew it was a concern going into the week. I’ll hold out a promise here yet. He’s been beat up throughout the course of the year, but he’s always found some way to kind of answer the bell, so we’ll see. We’ll give him every bit of time we can.”

Dobbins made 43 tackles and an interception in 14 games, which includes six starts. He has been battling a shoulder injury in the latter part of the season.
