In addition to receivers Cecil Shorts and Nate Washington, the Texans have ruled out linebacker Akeem Dent (hamstring), running back Jonathan Grimes (hamstring) and safety Quintin Demps (hamstring). Safety Lonnie Ballentine (knee), outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus (thigh) and running back Chris Polk (knee) are questionable.

The Texans will be without two of their top three receivers on Thursday, having ruled out Cecil Shorts and Nate Washington. That likely means rookies Jaelen Strong and Chandler Worthy will be active. Both were inactive last week and Strong has been inactive the past three weeks. Running back Jonathan Grimes, who missed Sunday's game with a hamstring injury, will be out again with the same injury.
