The list of inactives is out for today’s game, and includes the following names:
LB Xavier Adibi, WR David Anderson, TE Owen Daniels, QB Matt Leinart (#3 QB), CB Brice McCain, DE Jesse Nading, DT Malcolm Sheppard, G Kasey Studdard
DE Dave Ball, WR Kenny Britt, WR Lavelle Hawkins, S Robert Johnson, DT Jason Jones, T/G Troy Kropog, QB Chris Simms (#3 QB), LB David Thornton
Two lineup changes for both teams today, as Joel Dresseen replaced Owen Daniels at TE and rookie Daryl Sharpton sends Zac Diles to the bench at WOLB for the Texans, while Sen’Derrick Marks starts at DT for Jones and Jacob Ford gets the start for Dave Ball. For the Texans, DT Shaun Cody was questionable but will play today. For the Titans, Craig Stevens, Tony Brown, and Kerry Collins will all play despite being questionable. In a mild surprise, Collins is the backup to Rusty Smith while Simms is the third quarterback.
