LB Brooks Reed (groin) ruled out
Reed appeared to be favoring his left leg as he gingerly walked toward the sideline in the first quarter Thursday. He later was carted toward the locker room.
Reed has 2.5 sacks after contributing six last season as a rookie.
Texans offensive tackle Derek Newton left in the first half Thursday with a knee injury.
