CINCINNATI (AP) - Texans receiver Jaelen Strong is active Thursday night against the Bengals.

Strong was suspended for Houston’s opener for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. The Texans need him in their depleted offense. Three Texan tight ends are out with concussions. Receiver Will Fuller V is out with a shoulder injury, and guard Jeff Allen is sidelined by an ankle injury.

Houston also is missing linebacker Brian Cushing, suspended for 10 games for violating the league’s policy on performance enhancing substances. He’s also in the NFL’s concussion protocol.
