  Texans | Keshawn Martin to return kicks    Fri Aug 29, 11:42 PM

Houston Texans WR Keshawn Martin will return kickoffs to start the season, making him a lock for the 53-man roster. His roster spot was in question during the spring, but according to head coach Bill O'Brien, Martin was the most improved wide receiver in training camp and the preseason.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney sits out    Thu Aug 21, 03:08 PM

Houston Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney (undisclosed) was held out of practice Thursday, Aug. 21, because of an undisclosed injury. Head coach Bill O'Brien said Clowney is fine but is not sure if Clowney will play in the third preseason game.

Footballguys view: ESPN's Ed Werder reported that Clowney had a helmet-to-helmet collision and was to be re-evaluated Thursday morning. While there appears to be no big concern, keeping him out for a game might be a sign there were symptoms of a concussion. Clowney has looked superb this preseason and looks like a beast going into his rookie season. We'll keep an eye on this.

  Texans | Andre Johnson looking good    Wed Aug 20, 10:32 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has showed no signs of rust from his time away from the team this offseason. Johnson had an impressive practice during joint workouts with the Denver Broncos Wednesday, Aug. 20. 'He's a big part of what we're doing here,' head coach Bill O'Brien said.

  Texans | Three participate in practice    Tue Aug 19, 04:17 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring), WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) and LB Brian Cushing (undisclosed) were all active for practice Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Footballguys view: Another step in the right direction for Johnson and Foster, but more of a baby step than real progress. We want to see both play in the third game of the preseason this weekend to feel comfortable taking them at their 2nd and 4th round ADP.

  Texans | Case Keenum still in lead for No. 2 QB job    Mon Aug 18, 12:57 AM

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum still has a lead over QB Tom Savage for the No. 2 quarterback job even though he has been inconsistent during training camp.

Footballguys view: Remember when some were touting Savage as a first-round pick? Savage has a big arm, but his accuracy needs a ton of work. His play also breaks down under pressure. Our very own Cecil Lammey will be watching this battle in practice this week as the Texans and Broncos are holding joint practices at Dove Valley before their Week 3 preseason game.

  Texans | Two starters sitting    Sat Aug 16, 07:08 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) and WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) will not play in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.

  Texans | Have not decided on if Andre Johnson will play Saturday    Thu Aug 14, 01:35 PM

The Houston Texans have not decided if WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) will play in the second preseason game, but he is close to fully participating in practice, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Johnson participated in practice Thursday, Aug. 14, for the second straight day.

Footballguys view: Johnson has had some soft tissue problems that hampered him in-season before, so this bears watching, but it shouldn't downgrade him... yet. If he can't play in the third preseason game, then it might be time move him down a tier.

  Texans | Arian Foster's status for preseason game uncertain    Thu Aug 14, 01:25 PM

The Houston Texans have not decided if RB Arian Foster (hamstring) will play in the second preseason game, but he is close to fully participating in practice, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Foster participated in practice Thursday, Aug. 14, for the second straight day.

Footballguys view: As long as Foster suits up for the third preseason game, there's no reason to be extra worried about this condition. Foster came into 2011 with some hamstring issues, aggravated it and missed two games, and still finished as a top 5 back and helped bring home titles. He and the Texans aren't as good as they were then, but this should be comforting if you decide to take the plunge in the 2nd.

  Texans | Case Keenum in with the ones    Thu Aug 14, 10:51 AM

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum is taking some repetitions with the first-team offense in practice Thursday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: This is going to be something to watch all season. The Texans confidence in Ryan Fitzpatrick was shaken in the first preseason game. It's just one exhibition, but the seeds of doubt have been planted. Keenum is not that much different stylistically and tools-wise, but he is younger and has more experience with the Texans targets.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans NT Louis Nix (knee) was able to participate in his first practice of training camp Tuesday, Aug. 12, after offseason arthroscopic surgery. 'It's a matter of getting him back in football shape, getting him back in pads and not throwing him right back in there for 50 reps in a practice,' head coach Bill O'Brien said. 'We'll just continue to work him back.'

  Texans | Arian Foster still not at practice    Tue Aug 12, 04:28 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice again Tuesday, Aug. 12. Head coach Bill O'Brien hoped Foster would return to practice at some point this week.

Footballguys view: These hamstring injuries for both Foster and wide receiver Andre Johnson are not comforting fantasy owners. Foster has a current ADP of RB11 (2.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Texans | Andre Brown not a lock to make team    Mon Aug 11, 06:24 PM

Houston Texans RB Andre Brown is in a tough spot to make the team right now, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. It looks like RBs Jonathan Grimes and Alfred Blue are currently ahead of Brown in the running back pecking order.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the veteran here. Brown is a seasoned player with plenty of experience. He's looked good in limited duty at different points during his NFL career. Brown has also been banged up quite a bit since he came out of North Carolina State in 2009.

  Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick still starter    Mon Aug 11, 02:56 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is still the team's starting quarterback even though he threw two interceptions in the first preseason game, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: After one preseason game? Fitzpatrick is getting questioned as the starter after one preseason game because he struggled to impress. The team selected Tom Savage in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL draft with the idea that he could be some sort of developmental prospect. That's not the case. We could see Savage or Case Keenum forced into the lineup at some point this year. Basically, Andre Johnson was right.

  Texans | Arian Foster works on side    Mon Aug 11, 01:19 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 11, but did work on a side field. Head coach Bill O'Brien said he hopes Foster will be able to play in the second preseason game.

Footballguys view: Foster's hamstring issue is something we'd prefer to not see at this time of year, but remember that he missed time early in 2011 after aggravating a preseason hamstring issue and still ended up being a top 5 fantasy RB and putting up huge numbers in the fantasy playoffs. He and the Texans aren't the same as they were then, but Foster will only cost you a 2nd, or even 3rd round pick. If he plays without incident in the third preseason game, he could be a value pick.

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 11, but did work on a side field. Head coach Bill O'Brien said he hopes Johnson will be able to play in the second preseason game.

Footballguys view: Johnson has had some lingering soft issue injury issues in the past that caused him to miss multiple games, so this is nothing to blow off until it blows over. Ryan Fitzpatrick is also doing nothing to instill confidence in the Texans passing game. Johnson is a value in the fourth round, but maybe not as long as some of his peers.

  Texans | Team open to using franchise tag on J.J. Watt     Fri Aug 8, 01:03 PM

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt could have the franchise tag used on him if the two sides can not reach an agreement on a new contract, according to owner Bob McNair. 'You've got guys in the Hall of Fame that have been franchised in back-to-back years,' McNair said. 'The franchise tag is worth something to the team and you can't be afraid to use it.'

Footballguys view: The Texans would be foolish to let Watt hit the open market. They'll use whatever is in their power to keep Watt around for as long as possible.

  Texans | Johnny Manziel wasn't a fit    Fri Aug 8, 12:54 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel was bypassed by the Houston Texans at first overall in this year's draft because Manziel didn't fit the team's system, according to owner Bob McNair. 'Long term, we had questions as to how well he'd fit in our system doing what we wanted to do,' McNair said. 'At the end of the day, you've gotta do what you think is best for the team. If you do what's best for the team and the team succeeds as a result of it, the fans are going to forget those other things.'

Footballguys view: New head coach Bill O'Brien likes big, pocket passers who can see the field. That's not Manziel's game. The Texans selected Tom Savage in the fourth round, but we don't think he's any sort of long-term answer.

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (undisclosed) is expected to play in the team's first preseason game Saturday, Aug. 9.

Houston Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney (undisclosed) returned to practice Thursday, Aug. 7.

  Texans | Andre Johnson ruled out    Thu Aug 7, 12:23 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) has been ruled out of the team's first preseason game by head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: After the issues before camp, you can bet the Texans will give AJ a ton of slack, so this is no concern. What is a concern would be the quarterback position. That and his advancing age keep him in the realm of WR2 and no higher.

  Texans | Arian Foster won't play    Thu Aug 7, 12:22 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) has been ruled out of the team's first preseason game by head coach Bill O'Brien

Footballguys view: Forget the Ebola virus--the Hamstring Bug is a bigger threat, at least in terms of football. Foster is one of many players who have been afflicted and it's not a shock that they will sit him out. Due to the issues at quarterback as much as his injury, Foster is more of a low-end RB1 and we'd like to see signs of life from the offense before the season.

  Texans | Case Keenum has small edge for No. 2 QB job    Wed Aug 6, 02:16 PM

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum has a small lead over QB Tom Savage for the No. 2 quarterback job, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. 'Right now I'd still say Case is a little bit ahead of Tom,' O'Brien said. 'I'd say Tom's improving. I think Tom's definitely improving. It's a battle, it's definitely a competitive battle, but Case is still slightly ahead of Tom.' O'Brien said he believes the backup quarterback for the team is currently on the roster.

Footballguys view: Keenum showed last year that he would be fearless as a starter if forced into the lineup. Savage is the strong-armed rookie who struggles when under pressure. There are some who think Savage could develop into a starter someday, but he has a lot of work to do if that's the case. We're not crazy about Savage in deep dynasty leagues.
