Indianapolis Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney will miss Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.
Bet NFL Week 12
Freeney was out of practice all week with an abdomen injury for the Colts, who have won 19 consecutive regular-season games.
Coach Jim Caldwell said Wednesday he wasn't uncertain if Freeney could play. The Colts added depth this week by re-signing defensive end Josh Thomas.
With Freeney out, the Colts are likely to start versatile defensive lineman Raheem Brock in Freeney's spot. Brock has played end and tackle.
Indy (10-0) can clinch the AFC South title with a win and a Jacksonville loss.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction have made the Colts 3.5-point favorites over the Texans in Week 12. The over/under total for Sunday’s game has been set at 47.5.
