Inactives, lineup changes for Texans-Raiders

Here are the hot-off-the-press inactives and starting lineup changes for the Texans-Raiders game. Kickoff is at noon CT.

Inactives - Texans:
7 QB Dan Orlovsky (3QB)
17 WR Glenn Martinez
26 S Eugene Wilson
28 CB Antwaun Molden
35 CB Jacques Reeves
62 C Antoine Caldwell
87 TE Anthony Hill
97 DT Frank Okam

Starting lineup changes - Texans:
Dominique Barber will start at free safety for Wilson. Bernard Pollard will start at strong safety for John Busing. Glover Quin will start at left cornerback for Fred Bennett.

Notable:Wilson was not listed on the injury report this week, so I'll have to find out what happened to him (UPDATE: He's out with an illness, but it's confirmed that it's not swine flu). At corner, it's the first start of Quin's career. Rookie corner Brice McCain also is expected to get more playing time this week. Quin, a fourth-round draft pick out of New Mexico, got a lot of playing time in the preseason with Reeves injured and Dunta Robinson not reporting. He has good size (6-0, 203) and showed a nose for the ball during practices throughout the offseason. Pollard is the third player to start at strong safety for the Texans this season, following Dominique Barber and Busing. He was a second-round pick of the Chiefs in 2006 and signed with the Texans less than two weeks ago.

Inactives - Raiders:
3 QB Charlie Frye (3QB)
34 S Hiram Eugene
76 G Robert Gallery
79 G Paul McQuistan
81 WR Chaz Schilens
83 TE Brandon Myers
84 WR Javon Walker
89 WR Nick Miller

Starting lineup changes - Raiders:Michael Huff will start at free safety for Eugene.
