Houston Texans inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton is expected to take part in his first practice of the season come Wednesday.

Sharpton’s spent all year on the Physically Unable to Perform list after suffering a season-ending quadriceps injury last season.

In reference to Sharpton:

“I just left him about 10 minutes ago,” Texans head-coach Gary Kubiak said on Monday afternoon. “He looks really good. He’s basically been put through some really hard workouts the last four days, and he’s responded to them. All systems should be go for Wednesday to go back on the practice field.”

Once Sharpton returns to the practice field, Houston will then have a three-week window to place him on the active roster if/when they deem him fit and ready to play.

The Texans currently have just three insider linebackers on the roster following the loss of Pro Bowler Brian Cushing in Bradie James, Tim Dobbins and Barrett Rudd.

A fourth round pick out of Miami in 2011, Sharpton split snaps with DeMeco Ryans through the first eight games of last season before suffering the quad-injury.
