  Texans | Friday injury report for Texans    Fri Sep 9, 05:25 PM

Houston Texans OT Duane Brown (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 9. WR Will Fuller (hamstring), OT Derek Newton (hamstring), DE J.J. Watt (back) and LB Akeem Dent (concussion) fully participated in practice. Brown has been ruled out for Week 1, while the other players are not on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Fuller's hamstring issue is not what you want to see in a speed receiver for his regular season debut, but the possible reward of a long score against a suspect Bears secondary is enough to take the risk as a WR3/Flex in deeper leagues and DFS lineups.

  Texans | Houston's Wednesday injury report for Week 1    Wed Sep 7, 07:21 PM

Houston Texans OT Duane Brown (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 7. LB Akeem Dent (concussion) and OT Derek Newton (hamstring) fully participated in practice.

Footballguys view: Brown is not going to be playing this weekend, and there's not a date specified for his return. The Texans did activate him from the PUP list, so the expectation is that he'll be back before Week 6. Chris Clark is one of the more competent backups in the league, but Brown is one of the best, so it's still a significant dropoff.

  Texans | Friday practice report    Fri Nov 28, 04:27 PM

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) and CB Kareem Jackson (knee) have been ruled out for Week 13 after not practicing Friday, Nov. 28. LB Akeem Dent (neck) is questionable. LB Brian Cushing (knee), CB Johnathan Joseph (knee), DT Ryan Pickett (back) and S D.J. Swearinger (ankle), LB Max Bullough (hamstring), OT Tyson Clabo (foot), S Kendrick Lewis (knee), LB Mike Mohamed (hip), CB Darryl Morris (thigh) and LB Jeff Tarpinian (knee) are probable.

Footballguys view: Clowney is clearly the most disappointing player in the 2014 first-round because he has barely been on the field. His durability woes are ominous for the Texans after selecting Clowney to be a long-term cornerstone next to JJ Watt.
