Colts without 2 linemen against Texans

Indianapolis starting offensive linemen Samson Satele and
Winston Justice are inactive against the Houston Texans.

Colts interim coach Bruce Arians said earlier this week that
Satele (ankle), a center, and right tackle Justice (biceps) would
not travel with the team to Houston. A.Q. Shipley will start at
center and Jeff Linkenbach at tackle. Left guard Joe Reitz, who
missed last week’s game with a head injury, will start for the

Houston cornerback Alan Ball will miss his third straight game
with a sore foot, and linebacker Brooks Reed (groin) is also
inactive as expected.

Also inactive for Indianapolis are safety Tom Zbikowski, running
back Delone Carter, linebacker Kavell Conner, defensive end Clifton
Geathers and receiver Nathan Palmer. Houston’s other inactives were
running back Jonathan Grimes, guard Antoine Caldwell, guard Cody
White, nose tackle Terrell McClain and tackle Andrew Gardner.
