Tight end Owen Daniels said Wednesday he still hopes to return for a Dec. 5 game at Jacksonville.

Daniels last played Oct. 6 in a loss at San Francisco. After fracturing his right fibula, he was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return.

Daniels, 31, is the Texans’ primary tight end. He has 24 receptions for 252 yards and three touchdowns this season
