Inactives from NFL.com:

Texans: QB Craig Nail (3rd), SS Nick Ferguson, CB Matterral Richardson, FS Will Demps, LB Kevis Coley, G Kasey Studdard, OT Rashad Butler, TE Mark Bruener.

Analysis: QB Matt Schaub is active and will start, as expected.

Packers: QB Brian Brohm (3rd), SS Atari Bigby, CB Joe Porter, RB DeShawn Wynn, OLB Brandon Chillar, T Breno Giacomini, G Allen Barbre, DE Jeremy Thompson.

Analysis: RB Ryan Grant is active and will start, as expected. He’s a fine play against the Texans. RB Brandon Jackson and CB Charles Woodson are also active for the Packers.

Starting S Atari Bigby and LB Brandon Chillar are out. This doesn't help a defense that is struggling and has little depth at either position. I expect QB Matt Schaub and RB Steve Slaton will have big games and the defense will have to force turnovers to keep them from scoring.

Although the same can be said for Houston. They're missing two safeties (Ferguson and Demps) and S Eugene Wilson is playing through an injury.
