The Texans defense faced Aaron Rodgers without one of their best pass rushers in Jadeveon Clowney. Whether or not they will also take on Andrew Luck without him remains to be seen.
"I'll probably know that better later in the week," head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday.
The third-year starting defensive end missed his first start of the season when he did not travel for Sunday's game at Green Bay. Clowney had been limited in practice last week with an elbow/wrist injury and was questionable for the game.
"Look, he's beat up," O'Brien said after Sunday's 21-13 loss to the Packers. "Didn't really practice much during the week and we felt like, not him, we felt like he wasn't ready to play so we'd like to get him ready to play the following week instead of potentially losing him for the rest of the season and so I thought that was the right decision."
Prior to Sunday's game, Clowney was tied for fourth in the NFL with 12 tackles for loss. Through 11 games, he also recorded 41 tackles, including 34 solo, 11 quarterback hits, 3 sacks, and one pass defensed.
The Texans will travel to Indianapolis to play the Colts on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. on CBS and SportsRadio 610.
