The Houston Texans used their bye week to heal some bodies and add to a depleted roster. Added this week were three running backs (Dennis Johnson, Deji Karim & Roy Graham) as well as two inside linebackers (Tavares Gooden & Jeff Tarpinian).
“Well, two of them (running backs) couldn’t play right now, so somebody’s got to play,” Head Coach Gary Kubiak said. “We better start getting these young guys ready and we’re concerned about special teams health really. We’re talking about three guys that should help us on special teams.”
The Colts are also coming off a bye week and the week prior beat the then undefeated Denver Broncos.
