Gesicki (shoulder) was a full participant during a walk-through Wednesday, while Derby (foot) was limited.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill (shoulder), wide receiver Kenny Stills (groin) and defensive end Charles Harris (calf) all were ruled out Wednesday, confirming what Head Coach Adam Gase had said earlier in the week.
Wide receiver Albert Wilson was placed on injured reserve Wednesday because of the hip injury he sustained in the game against Detroit on Sunday.
The Dolphins injury report included 13 other players, but none of them had game status designations, meaning they all will be available for the game against Houston.
Houston ruled out seven players Wednesday, including starters CB Aaron Calvin (ankle), WR Keke Coutee (hamstring), TE Ryan Griffin (illness) and G Zach Fulton (ankle).
Also ruled out were safety Andre Hal, linebacker Brian Peters (ankle) and cornerback Shareece Wright (shoulder/hand/groin).
