Steelers Vs. Texans: Texans Lead 17-10 in Fourth Quarter, Rashard Mendenhall Injured

A 26-yard field goal from Shaun Suisham pulled the Steelers even with the Houston Texans to start the fourth quarter of their Week 4 matchup. The field goal capped a nine-play, 55-yard drive that stalled on the Texans' yard line.

The drive was dominated by running back Isaac Redman who carried the ball five times for 32 yards. The Steelers moved the ball deep into Texans territory doing all their work on the ground. Redman was filling in for an injured Rashard Mendenhall, who left the game with a hamstring injury. His return is questionable.

The Texans quickly answered the field goal to once again take a seven point lead, 17-10. The quick response was the product of a 30 yard completion from Matt Schaub to Owen Daniels down the left side of the field. Daniels was caught from behind, but on the very next play, Arian Foster took it in from 42 yards out for the go-ahead touchdown.
