Linebacker Brooks Reed is active for the Houston Texans after missing three games with a groin injury, and Minnesota cornerback Chris Cook is also active after sitting out six games with a broken right arm.

Vikings defensive end Brian Robison, who has started each game this season, was inactive Sunday because of a sprained right shoulder. Everson Griffen was scheduled to start in his place. The Texans will be without safety Quintin Demps, inactive with a back injury.

Also inactive for the Texans were cornerbacks Alan Ball and Stanford Routt, guards Antoine Caldwell and Cody White, tackle Andrew Gardner and nose tackle Terrell McClain.

Minnesota's other inactive players were quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, receiver Stephen Burton, cornerback Brandon Burton, linebacker Audie Cole, tackle Troy Kropog and defensive end D'Aundre Reed.
