Slaton may miss game

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

Numbness in his right thumb, caused by unspecified nerve issues in his neck and shoulder, could keep running back Steve Slaton out of the Texans’ crucial game with Jacksonville on Sunday. And rookie defensive back Glover Quin, a key reserve in the secondary, is a definite scratch because of the head injury he suffered against the Indianapolis Colts.

Although Slaton has been bothered by the numbness for several weeks, coach Gary Kubiak said the condition had worsened in the last day or so and the decision was made to hold him out of practice Friday. Neither Kubiak nor Slaton himself would completely discount his chances of playing against the Jaguars, but it appears likely Chris Brown will get the start with Ryan Moats becoming the backup.
