The Houston Texans have released their list of inactive players ahead of their game against the New York Jets.
Houston Texans have announced the seven players that will be inactive in Week 15 against the New York Jets in MetLife Stadium. On offense, the Texans will sit offensive tackle Roderick Johnson and wide receivers Vyncint Smith and Keke Coutee. The team had announced prior to making their trip on the road that Coutee would stay in Houston to continue to rehabilitate from his hamstring injury.
Smith hasn’t been active on the game-day roster since Week 9 when the Texans traveled to Mile High Stadium to face the Denver Broncos. Wide receiver DeAndre Carter is out of concussion protocol and is expected to play today. Carter is expected to resume his role as the Texans slot receiver until Coutee returns from his injury.
Right guard Zach Fulton is also expected to make a return to the offensive line after missing the last game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a hand injury he suffered in Week 13 against the Cleveland Browns. The offensive line is expected to have it’s entire group back after the Texans nine-game winning streak was snapped.
Running back D’Onta Foreman is also inactive for the second consecutive week after being promoted to the active roster from the PUP list. Cornerback Deante Burton and defensive ends Joel Heath and Carlos Watkins were also listed as inactive this week. Burton hasn’t been activated to the game-day roster since being signed during the Texans bye week.
