We got word that Jadeveon Clowney had a significant foot injury that might have kept him out of today's game, only to find out that it will indeed keep him inactive. That's a bummer, because his work against the run could have proven handy today, but we have to move on from that because we've got a game to win.

The Texans listed Clowney as questionable with his foot injury, but the rest of the squad is probable to play, including DeAndre Hopkins (hand), Ryan Griffin (achilles), J.J. Watt (groin, hand), and Shane Lechler (hamstring).

The Chiefs already ruled out Mitch Morse (concussion). They list Husain Abdullah (concussion), Dee Ford (concussion, wrist), and Tamba Hali (thumb, knee) as questionable. They should be getting Justin Houston (knee) back today, though there are questions about his conditioning after missing so many games.
