The Bulls and the Cats are playing today. Check out who’ll be dressed like us instead of in uniform.

Well, our best offensive lineman this season is down for the year, if not his career, (get well Derek Newton), so an offense that has been offensive all season has yet another change to handle this week. Here’s to hoping it does.

For the players who are still on the Texans roster, only Brian Peters (quad) has been ruled out. Jadeveon Clowney (elbow), Quintin Demps (calf), Jonathan Grimes (ankle), and Lamar Miller (shoulder) are all listed as questionable. Miller is expected to be a game time decision.

The Lions have ruled DeAndre Levy (knee/quad), and Darius Slay (hamstring) out. They have Eric Ebron (ankle/knee), Nevin Lawson (foot), Haloti Ngata (shoulder), Riley Reiff (illness), and Corey Robinson (ankle) listed as questionable for the game.

Houston Texans Injuries

  • T Jeff Adams (coach’s indifference)
  • G Oday Aboushi (coach’s indifference)
  • S Quintin Demps (calf)
  • Brandon Dunn (coach’s indifference)
  • WR Keith Mumphery (coach’s indifference)
  • ILB Brian Peters (quad)
  • QB Brandon Weeden (coach’s indifference)

Detroit Lions Injuries

  • LB DeAndre Levy (knee/quad)
  • DT Haloti Ngata (shoulder)
  • T Corey Robinson (ankle)
  • CB Darius Slay (hamstring)
  • RB Dwayne Washington (ankle)
  • TE Cole Wick (knee)
  • DL Anthony Zettel (coach’s indifference)

What impact do you think these guys being out will have? Are you worried about how Clowney performs with an elbow injury? What about Miller’s effectiveness with an injured shoulder?
