With the Houston Texans imploding as they head toward their first playoff berth, there is the possibility the team may need to make a lineup change.

John McClain of the Houston Chronicle says 2010 first-round pick Kareem Jackson, who has struggled at times this season, could be headed to the bench after allowing the game-deciding TD pass to Reggie Wayne in a 19-16 loss to the suddenly resurgent Indianapolis Colts.

The Texans have already won the AFC South, but they aren't exactly heading into the playoffs with momentum on their side, having dropped two in a row an likely having to now play in the first round instead of having a bye.
