Both teams did well last week despite the injury to key players. Foster (hamstring) didn’t suit up for the Texans’ win against the Colts. Lewis (calf) didn’t finish the Jaguars' win against the Titans.
The Texans showed good running back depth as Derrick Ward scored a touchdown before he left the game with an ankle injury. (He didn’t practice Wednesday.) Ben Tate topped 100 yards as the primary back the rest of the day.
Against the blitz-heavy Jets, who defend the run well, the Jaguars would really miss Lewis.
