Green Bay Packers defensive tackle B.J. Raji will miss his first start since the 2009 season on Sunday night against the Houston Texans. Raji has been listed as inactive with an ankle injury. Meanwhile, tight end Jermichael Finley, who was listed as questionable on the Packers' latest injury report, is active.
Raji will join wide receiver Greg Jennings, who continues to be bothered by a groin injury, on the sideline. Raji was injured in the Packers' loss to the Indianapolis Colts last week. Jennings has only started two games this season, but did catch his 50th career touchdown pass against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4. Also inactive for the Packers are S Sean Richardson, CB Davon House, LB Terrell Manning, G Greg Van Roten and TE D.J. Williams.
Safety Quintin Demps is the Texans' only injury-related inactive, as he'll sit with thumb and forearm ailments. Demps has appeared in just 15 games across three seasons with the Texans. CB Roc Carmichael, CB Brandon Harris, T Andrew Gardner, G Cody White, G Brandon Brooks and LB Barrett Ruud are also on the inactive list. Running backs Arian Foster and Ben Tate were listed as probable on the Texans' latest injury report, and are active as expected.
