Texans - Colts: Inactives For Thursday Night Football

New, comments

The Texans had already ruled out five players for tonight's contest in a release yesterday, including two of their top three receivers in Cecil Shorts and Nate Washington. On top of that, Jonathan Grimes, Quintin Demps, and Akeem Dent were all announced to be sidelined as well. Be prepared to see quite a bit of rookie trio Benardrick McKinney, Jaelen Strong, and Keith Mumphery in this one, folks.

Whitney Mercilus, Lonnie Ballentine, and Chris Polk were also listed as questionable as of yesterday. Here is the official inactives list, per Aaron Wilson.

Speaking of inactives, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is now officially OUT tonight.

There will never be a better opportunity for the Texans to score a big win on a national stage. Indianapolis' second favorite son is on the sidelines, and J.J. Watt has a lot of pent up anger from last week that he wants to unleash on a beleaguered Colts offensive line. It's now or never, folks.

Now. Or. Never.
