The Houston Texans will be without some key contributors in week eight against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Houston Texans have released their final injury report ahead of this Sunday’s week eight match-up against the Seattle Seahawks up in the Pacific Northwest.

The Texans have already ruled out rookie linebacker Dylan Cole (hamstring), offensive tackle Chris Clark (calf) and defensive end Joel Heath (knee).

Cole has been a pleasant surprise for the Texans. They will certainly miss him this week.

When it comes to Clark, he’s done a nice job filling in for Duane Brown at left tackle. It’s a good thing that Brown decided to end his hold out so Houston won’t be left with Kendall Lamm filling in on the left side.

Defensive end Kendall Langford (back) and linebacker Jelani Jenkins (hand) have been listed as questionable.

The Texans are also suddenly thin along the defensive line with Joel Heath and Kendall Langford banged up and J.J. Watt of course out for the rest of the season.

The Seattle Seahawks will also be missing some key players with offensive lineman Luke Joeckel ruled out with a knee injury.

The Texans’ defense should have their way with the Seahawks’ offensive line, which has struggled this season. Not having Joeckel certainly won’t help them.

Dynamic Seahawks’ running back C.J. Procise is doubtful with an ankle injury.

Seattle defensive end Marcus Smith (ankle) and cornerback Jeremy Lane (groin/finger) are both questionable.

Comment below and tell us how you think the injuries on both teams could affect Sunday’s game between the Texans and Seahawks.
