First, the players who ARE active: Titans QB Vince Young (though he won't start; Kerry Collins will) Browns QB Seneca Wallace, Browns LB Marcus Benard, Texans WR Andre Johnson, Colts TE Jacob Tamme.
Now, the players who are NOT active:
Chris Crocker, Bengals, FS: This isn’t a big surprise, because Crocker has been dealing with a calf injury. But Crocker is a solid centerfielder, and Chinedum Ndukwe, who isn’t quite as good, will take his place in the starting lineup.
Jake Delhomme, Browns, QB: He still hasn’t completely recovered from his ankle injury, but it’s unclear whether the man who was the opening day starter would reclaim his role. Especially with the way Colt McCoy is playing. For the record, Seneca Wallace is active, but McCoy is starting.
Jason Allen, Texans, CB: There was talk that Allen, who was waived by the Dolphins earlier this week, could get some playing time this week for his new team in Houston. Apparently, that won’t happen.
Joseph Addai/Mike Hart, Colts, RBs: The top two Indianapolis backs are inactives. That means it's up to Donald Brown to jumpstart the Colts running attack.
Gary Brackett/Clint Session, Colts, LBs: Considering how many players Indianapolis will be missing, the Bengals might actually have a chance in this game.
Austin Collie, Colts, WR: I mean, seriously. How will the Bengals not win this game?
Owen Daniels, Texans, TE: We knew this already, but now it's clear Joel Dreessen will take his place in the starting lineup.
