The New York Jets' struggling offense will be without tight end Dustin Keller, wide receiver Stephen Hill and fullback John Conner against the Houston Texans with hamstring injuries.

All three are inactive Monday night after not practicing last week. The Jets are already playing without top wide receiver Santonio Holmes, who suffered a season-ending foot injury last week, leaving Chaz Schilens and Jeremy Kerley as the starters.

Also inactive are cornerback Darrelle Revis, out with a torn knee ligament, nose tackle Sione Po'uha, third-string quarterback Greg McElroy and guard Caleb Schlauderaff.

Texans backup running back Ben Tate is inactive with a toe injury. Also not playing for Houston are safety Quintin Demps, wide receiver Lestar Jean, offensive linemen Brandon Brooks and Andrew Gardner, and cornerbacks Brandon Harris and Roc Carmichael.
