The Houston Texans host the Baltimore Ravens in front of an empty NRG Stadium at 3:25 PM today. As the game approaches, the inactives list is out, so let’s see who will not be suiting up as the Texans desperately try to avoid an 0-2 start:
As expected, RB Duke Johnson is inactive for today’s game, so it’s a good thing Bill O’Brien sees $10 million-dollar man David Johnson as an every-down back. The Texans will go into this contest with David Johnson, Buddy Howell, and C.J. Prosise comprising their RB corps.
Also notable is Keke Coutee’s absence from this list. Randall Cobb and his $9 million failed to make ANY impact last week, even when the Chiefs were focused on taking away Houston’s deep passing threat. Let’s hope Coutee can first “get” and then STAY out of Bill O’Brien’s doghouse long enough for us to see some of the incredible potential he possesses come to fruition.
Here are Baltimore’s inactives:
