AFC South champion Indianapolis will be missing six starters

against Houston.

Cornerback Greg Toler is out again with a groin injury, while

ankle injury.

The other players sitting out Sunday were outside linebacker Pat

Angerer, fullback Stanley Havili, defensive tackle Ricky Jean

Francois, right guard Jeff Linkenbach and center Samson Satele.

injury and will be replaced by rookie Ryan Griffin.

The Texans’ other inactives are offensive linemen Andrew

Gardner, Alex Kupper and Cody White; defensive end Tim Jamison;
