The aches and pains of a long season catch up to players. Especially on a short week... traveling across the country to play a game... in the rain. Might as well not even make the trip. For one Keke Coutee that is exactly the case as did not accompany the team to New York because he has been dealing with an injured hamstring. The one other player Texans fans have had their eye on the injury report for, RB D’Onta Foreman is out of the game.
For the 4-9 Jets, rookie QB Sam Darnold will be without several of his offensive weapons. Leading rusher Isaiah Crowell was put on IR this past week and on top of that their reception leader Quincy Enunwa is unavailable with an ankle injury. Expect the Texans to double team WR Robby Anderson as he will be the primary target for Darnold.
Keep an eye out for Jordan Jenkins, the Jets OLB who was listed as questionable before the game. The Houston-born linebacker has both a shoulder and ankle injury and is one of their best pass rushers.
