The Houston Texans are in Baltimore for an early kickoff against the Ravens.  The team will be without starting left tackle Duane Brown, who sprained his toe in last week’s win over Tennessee.


The team is dealing with another distraction, after running back Arian Foster admitted he accepted outside money during his college playing days at Tennessee.  The admission sparked ESPN analyst Dick Vitale to refer to Foster and others as “prostitutes” on Twitter, a comment he later retracted.


Also look for the Texans debut of defensive back Ed Reed, who has been working hard to play against his former team.
