He gave them a scare, but it appears that Jake Long’s MCL sprain, suffered last week in practice, was of the minor variety and he will be able to play against Houston this week. He’s listed as probable and practiced in full Friday. If he hadn’t been able to go, simply put, the Dolphins would have been screwed against a Texans defense that ranked 4th in scoring and 6th in defense last year, with a raw rookie quarterback under center, no good receivers, and no true above average starter on the offensive line. Even with Long though, their outlook looks pretty bleak against the Texans in Houston.

Anyone who plays Survivor Leagues should feel confident in picking Houston this week.
