The Saints placed backup offensive lineman Michael Ola on injured reserve after he was hurt in Sunday's win at Tampa Bay. They added veteran tackle Derek Newton, who was a starter for five years with the Texans before rupturing the patellar tendon in both knees in 2016, which sidelined him for all of 2017 as well.

The Texans have lost to the Colts, 24-21, ending their nine game winning streak. Houston had a chance to gain ground in playoff race as the No. 2 seed Patriots lost to the Dolphins on a last-minute touchdown but could not complete a comeback against Indianapolis.

For the first time during their nine game winning streak, the Texans are trailing at halftime. The Colts lead 17-7, scoring 17 unanswered points. Houston got off to a good start -- especially on defense -- but the game quickly turned in the second quarter. Houston's running game has struggled -- Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue have combined for five yards on eight carries -- and Deshaun Watson has completed 12 of 16 passes for 105 yards.
