ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Houston Texans cornerback Marcus Coleman and linebacker Antwan Peek were suspended for an unspecified violation of team policy and will miss Sunday's game against Buffalo.

Coleman, who has started 65 straight games, leads the team with four interceptions, tying him for fourth in the AFC. The eight-year veteran is also the Texans' fifth-leading tackler with 45.

Kenny Wright will start in place of Coleman.

Peek, a third-round pick in 2003, is injured with a dislocated toe on his left foot. Neither he nor Coleman traveled to Buffalo; they will rejoin the team Monday.

The Texans signed linebacker Shantee Orr from the practice squad to the active roster.
