HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- Texans wide receiver Keke Coutee is among the team’s six inactive players against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

It’s the fifth game this season in which Coutee, a former fourth-round pick for the Texans, has been inactive.

Coutee has spent most of his time on the bench since fumbling in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens. The turnover led to a Ravens touchdown and swung the momentum of the game.

Texans interim head coach Romeo Crennel said Friday that Coutee is working hard in practice, but sometimes you wait your turn and take advantage of your opportunity.

“I think that’s the same thing with any player who’s not playing, who’s not starting,” Crennel said. “They are waiting their turn and they’re trying to do the best they can in practice and hoping that they get an opportunity to play in the game.”

Also inactive for the Texans are tight end Jordan Akins, who left the Vikings game with a concussion two weeks ago; cornerback Cornell Armstrong; running back Buddy Howell; inside linebacker Peter Kalambayi; and rookie offensive tackle Charlie Heck.
