Daniels has been out of action since week five of the season after sustaining a fractured leg in his side's defeat to the San Francisco 49ers and was placed on the Texans' injured reserve designated to return list.
"OD did work on the field — not with the team but on his own — and had a really good day," Kubiak told the Houston Chronicle.
"Obviously, he's not going to play this week. But he made a lot of progress, so we'll see where we're at heading into the weekend."
The Texans are 2-10 in their season going into their week 14 clash with the Jaguars.
