Texans RB Steve Slaton (neck questionable) missed practice Friday after practicing earlier in the week. Slaton was experiencing numbness in his arms related to a previously undisclosed shoulder injury, and the Houston Chronicle reported earlier today that he is unlikely to play.

Neither is a great play because Chris Brown is, well, not very good and Ryan Moats workload is yet to be determined as the backup. The game figures to be played mostly through the air. Still, either back could be serviceable if you are a Slaton owner without any other options.
