With Texans DE Mario Williams out for the season because of a sports hernia, ex-Bears DE Mark Anderson and former undrafted free agent Tim Jamison stand to play more. Anderson could step into Williams' spot in the lineup, but head coach Gary Kubiak indicated Jamison, who had begun to see increased playing time recently with Williams ailing, figures to play a "whole lot" and that Anderson and Jamison could rotate. Anderson, whom the Texans signed in October, has notched three sacks with Houston, and the extended playing time gives the Texans a chance to see what they have in the one-time Chicago pass-rush star. The Texans recorded a season-high five sacks vs. Baltimore in Week 14, even with Williams, their unquestioned best pass rusher when healthy, playing a limited role. Four of the sacks came from players other than defensive linemen, with Anderson notching the other sack. The Texans had just two sacks from linebackers or defensive backs in the first 12 games.
