The Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans announced their inactive lists for Sunday's game and there are not many surprises. For the Raiders, Louis Murphy was unable to get back to 100% for this week and will sit one more week. It is worth noting that the Raiders signed fullback Manase Tonga off the practice squad and officially placed Ricky Brown on injured reserve with a concussion. Marcel Reece has been dealing with an ankle injury and will sit due to that. Tonga will get some fullback chances.
As expected, Andre Johnson is sitting out the game. The Texans do have Ben Tate active as backup to Arian Foster, but Foster will get the bulk of the carries for the Texans. With Andre Johnson sidelined, the Raiders will have to focus their attention on Foster and Owen Daniels.
Raiders Inactives: Louis Murphy, Chimdi Chekwa, Chris Johnson, Marcel Reece, Stephon Heyer, Matt Shaughnessy, Richard Gordon.
Texans Inactives: TJ Yates, Sherrick McManis, Derrick Ward, Tim Dobbins, Thomas Austin, Andrew Gardner, Andre Johnson.
