Sunday, January 1, 2012
HOUSTON (AP) -- Texans running back Arian Foster and cornerback Johnathan Joseph, both selected to the Pro Bowl this week, are inactive for Sunday's regular-season finale against Tennessee.
Tight end Owen Daniels is also inactive for the Texans (10-5), who are locked into the No. 3 seed for the AFC playoffs, regardless of the outcome of their game. Cornerback Sherrick McManis (ankle), guard Mike Brisiel (right ankle) and safety Troy Nolan (ankle) are also inactive.
Ben Tate, who needs 155 yards rushing to reach 1,000 for the season, is starting for Foster.
Defensive end Jason Jones (left ankle) and defensive tackle Shaun Smith (knee) are among the inactive players for Tennessee. The Titans (8-7) need a victory and help from other teams to make the playoffs.
