The Houston Texans enter their AFC Wild-Card game against the Oakland Raiders rather healthy, compared to their opponent.
The Texans released their list of inactive players for the game 90 minutes prior to kickoff, and here’s who will not be suiting up for the team:
One of the most notable players on the Texans’ inactive list is WR Wendall Williams, who was promoted in early December when Braxton Miller was put onto the injured reserve list. But the absence of Williams, who will sit the game with an injury on the roster means that the Houston will play with just three active wide receivers (DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Keith Mumphery).
Texans ILB Max Bullough, who typically plays in a backup roll on defense and is known for his play on special teams, is sidelined with an injury.
The Texans and Raiders will play each other with a 4:35 p.m. Eastern kickoff time from NRG Stadium in Houston. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
