108.*Lee Evans BAL at Sea
Note: (Ankle) Practiced Thursday for the second day in a row. ***Listed as doubtful.***
109.*Andre Johnson HOU at TB
Note: (Hamstring) Had a good workout Monday, but obviously the practice reports matter more, plus the Texans have a bye in Week 11. Doing 'extremely well' and could be a game-time decision. *** OUT AGAIN THIS WEEK. ***
