This game means nothing for the Houston Texans in terms of seeding for the playoffs as they are locked in as the No. 3 seed. So there could be more players out then normal if this game meant something. Heading into the game the Texans knew they would be without guard Mike Brisiel, cornerback Sherrick McManis and safety Troy Nolan.
A few more players have been added to the Texans inactive list with starting running back Arian Foster and starting tight end Owen Daniels sitting out this game. Daniels was listed as probable heading into this game with a knee injury, and Foster was a surprise scratch as he has not been listed on the injury report all week.
