Texans punter Shane Lechler has been hospitalized with the flu, coach Gary Kubiak said Thursday. Lechler will remain in the hospital overnight and is expected to be cleared Friday. Kubiak said he expects Lechler to play Sunday against Oakland, who Lechler played for the Raiders during his initial 13 seasons in the NFL. What will the Texans do if Lechler, their lone punter, can’t take the field? “Go for it, I guess,” Kubiak joked.
