HOUSTON -- The Texans’ defense won’t get any major help from injuries today.
Houston will need to slow both and have a solid defensive effort to maximize the chances for rookie quarterback T.J. Yates to guide the Texans to their sixth consecutive win.
Turner is a load, and sure tackling with quick-arriving support will be a necessity.
The Falcons are without two of their top four cornerbacks in Brent Grimes and Kelvin Hayden, which could mean increased opportunity for Yates to connect with Andre Johnson. Dominique Franks will start at left corner for Grimes.
