Starting at about 11:30 a.m. Eastern, keep refreshing this post consistently as we give you all of the notable active and inactives in the early games.
ESPN's Texans reporter Tania Ganguli was asked Friday via Twitter what the chances are that running back Arian Foster will play Sunday against the Bengals. Her response: "Very, very low." As such, Foster, who has not played since Week 9 due to a groin injury, will likely be replaced in the starting lineup once again by Alfred Blue. The rookie did most of the heavy lifting for Houston out of its backfield against the Browns, rushing 36 times for 156 yards.

Updating a previous story, Houston Texans RB Arian Foster has been officially downgraded to out for Week 11 with a groin injury. Foster was initially listed as questionable for Sunday's game with the Browns, but now won't make the trip to Cleveland. Rookie RB Alfred Blue will shoulder the load in Foster's absence.
Titans tight end Delanie Walker cleared a major hurdle on Saturday in his effort to play in Week 11. But ultimate clearance still eludes him.
Titans tight end Delanie Walker missed practice again on Friday as he continues to suffer from issues related to the concussion he sustained in Week 10. It's looking less and less likely that he'll play in Week 11 versus Pittsburgh.
Texans RB Arian Foster is unlikely to play this Sunday versus the Browns due to the groin injury he suffered in Week 9.
