Keller, Hill, Po'uha, Conner inactive vs. Texans
As expected, Dustin Keller will miss his fourth straight game Monday night with a nagging hamstring injury.
The tight end -- who is in a contract year -- has just one catch for seven yards this season.
The Jets (2-2) must also face the 4-0 Texans without their deep-field threat, rookie Stephen Hill, who also is sidelined by a hamstring injury.
Nose tackle Sione Po'uha (back) is inactive for the Jets, along with fullback John Conner (hamstring), backup quarterback Greg McElroy, offensive lineman Caleb Schlauderaff and cornerback Darrelle Revis (ACL tear).
Chaz Schilens will start in place of Hill, Jeff Cumberland will fill in for Keller and Kenrick Ellis will start for Po'uha.
Running back Ben Tate is inactive for Houston, along with receiver Lester Jean, cornerbacks Roc Carmichael and Brandon Harris, safety Quintin Demps, tackle Andrew Gardner, and guard Brandon Brooks.
