The Houston Texans take on the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night in a game where the winner gets into the playoffs and the loser is eliminated from playoff contention. The Texans will be without wide receiver Noah Brown, who has been ruled out with a back injury.

Noah Brown injury updates

Thursday update: Brown was unable to practice once ahead of Week 18 and has been ruled out with a back injury. Nico Collins, Robert Woods, John Metchie and Xavier Hutchinson should be the Top 4 wide receivers for this matchup.

Fantasy football analysis

Brown is a big loss after already losing Tank Dell for the season. When healthy, he has played well, including a huge 7 receptions for 172 yards in Week 10. Thankfully the Texans got Nico Collins back from his calf injury and he should see plenty of work Saturday night. Robert Woods is next on the list and has some fantasy appeal along with tight end Dalton Schultz.
