Jacksonville, FL (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans tried to use the bye week to get healthy and get some key players back on the field, but not everyone was able to get right for their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 10.
The Texans will be missing some key components on offense and defense as they try to hold their game-and-a-half lead in the AFC South.
Starting wide receiver Will Fuller is going to miss the game with a hamstring injury that he injured against the Detroit Lions in Week 8. Also on offense, the Texans will be without fellow WR Jaelen Strong who injured his ankle against the Lions as well and is expected to miss a month.
On defense veteran nose tackle Vince Wilfork will miss the game with a groin injury and starting cornerback AJ Bouye is also inactive after hurting himself during Friday’s practice.
Running back Johnathon Grimes and linebacker Brian Peters are also missing the AFC South tilt with injury while quarterback Brandon Weeden is the only healthy scratch for the Texans.
