The Texans and Colts are set to begin a Thursday Night Football match-up that should determine the AFC South this season. I’ve always wanted a Week 17 AFC South Championship game. I guess Week 12 will have to do.
The following players won’t be playing for the Texans:
Houston will be missing the majority of their secondary. Lonnie Johnson Jr., Bradley Roby, Mike Adams, and Justin Reid all won’t make it. Tashaun Gipson, A.J. Moore, Gareon Conley, Johnathan Joseph, Vernon Hargreaves III, tell me how you feel.
The BIG news is that Will Fuller V will be back out there. I missed his puppy dog face, his long blond hair, and the fact that the Texans refuse to throw the ball downfield without him. Hopefully they finally push one past 20 yards this time.
Oh, it also appears that Keke Coutee is a healthy scratch. Guess he’s back outside Bill O’Brien’s circle of trust.
It doesn’t get much easier tonight, though. T.Y. Hilton ACTIVE. Eric Ebron ACTIVE. Rock Ya-Sin and Khari Willis won’t suit up, but the Colts are deep enough in the secondary to get by.
The game starts at 7:20 p.m. See you then.
