NFL Thursday: Colts at Texans

Tonight: Colts at Texans, 8:25, Ch. 10, NFL

Line/OU: Texans by 1; 441/2

Both teams face questions about the health of some key offensive weapons. Indianapolis QB Andrew Luck missed the first game of his career last weekend and has been limited in practice with an injured right shoulder. Houston star RB Arian Foster returned Sunday from groin surgery but was largely ineffective, finishing with eight carries for 10 yards plus a costly fumble. … Ryan Mallett will start at QB for the Texans despite being benched late in Sunday's blowout loss to the Falcons. … Colts WR Andre Johnson faces his former team for the first time. Johnson, who holds the Texans' career record with 13,597 receiving yards, was released after his 12th season.
