Houston Texans Inactives: Kareem Jackson, Arian Foster Inactive Against Cleveland Browns

New, comments

Our hallowed Houston Texans will be playing in (with?) snow today along the shores of Lake Erie as they challenge the Cleveland Browns, leaders of the AFC North. However, not all of our guys will be suiting up, either due to injury, ineptitude, or an inability to get out of a certain man's doghouse.

We're going to miss this guy today, but we get two cogs back.

Well, fellow Texans fans, we got our wish to see some more of Brian Cushing and Jadeveon Clowney, both of whom will be suiting up today.

Unfortunately, CB Kareem Jackson is missing with a sprained MCL, but at least his counterpart Johnathan Joseph has recovered from his first career concussion to make the cut. This should give A.J. Bouye further opportunities to show what he's made of.

Likewise, Our RB-Offensive Weapon extraordinaire Arian Foster left the game against Philly with a groin injury, and unfortunately, wasn't able to sufficiently recover, despite the bye last week. Theoretically, this should allow Alfred Blue a chance to showcase his skillset, and we might again see something of Jonathan Grimes, whose season totals of seven carries for 23 yards leave much to be desired.

On the other hand, miracles do happen, and we get to see the return of Darryl Morris after missing a month with an ankle injury.

HOU Inactives

  • T Jeff Adams, coach's decision
  • DB, Josh Aubrey, coach's decision
  • ILB Max Bullough, coach's decision
  • RB Arian Foster, groin
  • CB Kareem Jackson, knee
  • WR DeVier Posey, coach's decision
  • QB Tom Savage, coach's decision

On the shores of Lake Erie, it's a similar tale. They lost DL Phil Taylor when he was IR-ed with a knee injury Friday, and have two players, including TE Jordan Cameron, still working their way back from concussions.

CLE Inactives

  • DB Johnson Bademosi, concussion
  • TE Jordan Cameron, concussion
  • CB Pierre Desir
