    Well assuming these guys are out with minor niggles and its more for rest, and nothing more serious, I'm very happy with this decision.

    I'll be interested to see how they divide the playing time at the CB position, hoping they give someone else plenty of snaps and not just leave KJ and Allen out there all game. Don't want to get into another KJ vs. Allen debate, merely saying with the sheer number of CB's we have on the books, it'd be nice if KJ and JA shared snaps at #1 and thereby don't overdo it, and we see some Brandon Harris, thrown into the mix alongside McCain and McMannis for evaluation purposes. Let's not forget we've got Roc Carmichael to come off IR in the offseason and that surely leaves more bodies than roster spaces next season. Give the young guns a chance to show what they've got.

    Tate and Ward are a good duo. The running game is going to be straight ahead pounding today. The Titans line will get tired from that soon enough.

    Wow, well....so much for having a great chance at beating the Titans and keeping them out of the playoffs. Geez.

    AJ doesn't offset the loss of the other three players. In fact, the loss of OD and Joseph is the most damaging of the inactives. IMO.

    Ben Tate needs 155 rushing yds for 1,000. He & Arian Foster would be 7th pair of teammates in NFL history w/ 1k in same season #Texans

    If Foster didn't exist, Tate & Ward would be the best duo this franchise has ever had. Thats true depth. Been quite surprised at Wards lack of touches this season tbh, thought he'd have seen a little more action, especially given the injury problems both Tate and Foster have suffered.
