We knew from the end of Sunday’s bout with Jacksonville that many of the Houston Texans players would be sidelined this week. Several were injured in the matchup with the Jags, and then Brian Cushing was suspended earlier this week for PEDs.
Houston’s tight end position suffered significantly, with C.J. Fiedorowicz headed to IR and both Stephen Anderson and Ryan Griffin in concussion protocol.
Houston Texans inactives:
- G Jeff Allen (ankle)
- TE Stephen Anderson (concussion)
- RB Alfred Blue (ankle)
- WR Bruce Ellington (concussion)
- WR Will Fuller V (shoulder)
- TE Ryan Griffin (concussion)
Cincinnati Bengals inactives:
- G Trey Hopkins (knee)
- DE Michael Johnson (concussion)
- TE C.J. Uzomah
- WR Tyler Boyd
- WR Josh Malone
- OL Alex Redmond
- CB KeiVarae Russell
