Street Clothes Special: Texans at Dolphins Inactives

New, comments

Morning, folks. We're all dressed and ready for game day. See who'll be slumming it in sweats on the sidelines.

No B-Mac today.

While we're all dressed to impress in our best game day attire, which hopefully includes undies, not all of the Texans are so attired. We already know that Kareem Jackson is out for the game, as are Benardrick McKinney and Cecil Shorts III. Sadly, Brandon Brooks' toe didn't heal enough for the big guy to man the line against the Dolphins' formidable defensive line. Also, new father Jadeveon Clowney's ankle has recovered enough for him to play in the game (and hopefully work with the rest of the front seven to harass Ryan Tannehill) today).

With Jackson out today, we're expecting rookie Kevin Johnson to start opposite Johnathan Joseph. Of course, since our safety situation is essentially unsafe to our defense's attempts to get off the field on 3rd down, Jackson was assisting in trying to keep Eddie unPleasant off the field, so K-Jo was seeing a ton of time anyways.

The Dolphins have moved away from ineptitude, dropping their head coach and defensive coordinator two weeks ago. Now, they welcome the Texans at their place with former Texans CB Brice McCain (he of the HOF quality) out due to a knee injury.
