With kickoff between the Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns just less than 90 minutes away, each team released its inactive lists for the game.
Deshaun Watson is active for the first time this season and he’ll face his former team in his Cleveland debut. However, Watson will be without one of his potential top weapons in tight end David Njoku, who sits today with a knee injury.
Here’s a look at the Browns inactives:
QB Kellen Mond
WR Michael Woods II
CB Thomas Graham Jr.
DE Isaiah Thomas
TE David Njoku
DT Tommy Togiai
For the Texans, several key contributors are out. On the defensive side of the ball, rookie Derek Stingley Jr. is out for the second straight game with an injury. The offensive side of the ball, however, has a couple more blemishes. Brandin Cooks, O.J. Howard and Rex Burkhead are all down for today’s game. This means that we could see the debuts of wide receiver Amari Rodgers and running back Eno Benjamin for the Texans.
Here’s a look at the Texans inactives:
WR Brandin Cooks
CB Derek Stingley Jr.
RB Rex Burkhead
DL Thomas Booker
OL Austin Deculus
TE O.J. Howard
The Texans and Browns kick off at 12 noon at NRG Stadium.
