Two stars missing Colts-Texans opener

Share This Story



Colts quarterback Peyton Manning was inactive for Sunday's opener in Houston with a neck injury, officially ending his streak of 227 consecutive starts, including playoffs.


The NFL is in full swing, and we've got all the best action from opening weekend.

Texans running back Arian Foster was also inactive after sitting out practice all week to nurse a left hamstring injury. Foster, the NFL's leading rusher in 2010, rushed for 231 yards in a season-opening victory over the Colts last year.

The four-time MVP did not travel with the team after undergoing more surgery Thursday. Kerry Collins, signed on Aug. 24, will start in Manning's place.

The Colts' other inactive players included receivers Anthony Gonzalez and Blair White, running back Darren Evans and guard Jamey Richard.
