INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts receiver Austin Collie and running back Joseph Addai are inactive for Monday night's game against the Houston Texans.

Collie, the team's No. 2 receiver, is out after having surgery on his thumb. Addai, the team's leading rusher, is out with a nerve injury in his left shoulder.

Mike Hart will get his first career start in place of Addai. Regular No. 2 running back Donald Brown is active, but he won't start because of a hamstring injury.

The Colts already lost tight end Dallas Clark for the season after having wrist surgery. Jacob Tamme will start in his place.

Texans middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans is out for the season after rupturing his Achilles' tendon, and Brian Cushing will start in his place.
