The Houston Texans announced their inactives ahead of their Week 7 encounter with the Green Bay Packers Sunday at 12:00 p.m. CT at NRG Stadium.

Tight end Jordan Akins (ankle/concussion) was listed as questionable, but will be inactive for the third straight week. Preparing for Green Bay, the third-year tight end didn’t practice a single day, which was a downgrade compared to Week 6 when he was limited for three days.

Linebacker Peter Kalambayi (hamstring) will be inactive for the sixth time this season. The former 2018 sixth-round pick played 16 special teams snaps for Houston in Week 1 an hasn’t been seen on game day since.

Houston’s other inactives include receiver Keke Coutee, cornerback John Reid, and offensive tackle Charlie Heck.

For the Packers, running back Aaron Jones (calf) is out after getting injured in Thursday’s practice and being held out on Friday. Initially, he was questionable. Running back Tyler Ervin (wrist) and defensive lineman Tyler Lancaster (shoulder) were declared out on Friday afternoon. Green Bay later declared offensive tackle David Bakhtiari (chest) out on Saturday.

The other inactives for Green Bay include safety Darnell Savage (quadricep), cornerback Kevin King, and quarterback Jordan Love.
