Jonathan Joseph finally healthy

Johnathan Joseph was not healthy for much of the 2012 season.

Even with struggling through a groin injury for a large part of the season, Joseph managed to go to his second straight Pro Bowl. But according to the 29-year old cornerback, not only was a sore groin slowing him down, but two sports hernias too.

"With the groin issues and everything behind me and the sports hernia on both sides, I had both those fixed," Joseph said Thursday. "Now I have more pop, more explosion with my legs. I can run all day again."

Joseph is feeling better than ever and was anxious to get back on the field to test his finally healthy legs.

"I'm just glad to have it behind me," Joseph said. "I'm feeling better than I've ever felt. I told somebody that yesterday. I was just excited that I got it fixed just to see where I am at on the field. And I'm having probably the best OTAs I've had in four or five years."

Joseph finished the 2012 season with two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, 11 passes defensed and 53 tackles.

The Texans led the NFL in passes defensed in 2012 and rank third in pass defense since 2011.
