HOUSTON (AP) 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 Colts.
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.
