NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)

Houston Texans fullback James Casey and receiver Andre Johnson are inactive against Tennessee, which is sitting defensive end William Hayes.

The Texans had Casey listed as doubtful while he recovers from a strained pectoral muscle, but he will miss a second straight game Sunday. Lawrence Vickers is starting in his place. Johnson had been declared out and is missing his third straight game as he recovers from surgery on his hamstring.

Hayes had back spasms in practice Friday and will miss his second game this season.

The Texans also are sitting quarterback T.J. Yates, cornerback Brandon Harris, guard Thomas Austin, tackle Andrew Gardner and defensive end Tim Bulman.

Tennessee also is without Chris Hope (broken left forearm) and linebacker Colin McCarthy (hamstring).
