  Texans | Sign nine to futures deal    Mon Dec 29, 07:08 PM

The Houston Texans have re-signed LB Kourtnei Brown, WR Jace Davis, OT Matt Feiler, C James Ferentz, CB Charles James, WR Travis Labhart, RB Ben Malena, WR Uzoma Nwachukwu and CB Terrance Parks to futures contracts Monday, Dec. 29. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners in super super deep dynasty leagues should be monitoring Jace Davis. The Northern Colorado prospect has a great size/speed combination and a skill set similar to that of Anquan Boldin. He was with the Ravens on their practice squad for most of 2014.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in Week 17 and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: The Texans are very alive with the Ravens and Chargers both finding themselves in dogfights today with division rivals, but they may not have Foster's services along the way.

  Texans | Andre Johnson listed as probable    Fri Dec 26, 06:45 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 26, and is listed as probable for Week 17.

Footballguys view: Johnson has terrific chemistry with spot starter Case Keenum, so he could be a surprise stud in Week 17 against the vulnerable Jacksonville secondary.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins' wrist still an issue    Thu Dec 25, 11:55 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (wrist) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Footballguys view: Hopkins is banged up, and Andre Johnson appears to have much better chemistry with Case Keenum going back to their time together last year, so Hopkins is the lesser play of the Texans wide receivers this week.

  Texans | J.J. Watt goes for stitches    Sun Dec 21, 08:35 PM

Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt (nose) was hit on the nose in the fourth quarter of the Week 16 game against the Baltimore Ravens, and he had blood running down his face into the mouth. He said Sunday, Dec. 21, that he required a couple of stitches. Watt had eight tackles and a sack, and he has 17 1/2 sacks for the season with a franchise-record 54 for his career.

  Texans | Andre Johnson reaches milestone    Sun Dec 21, 06:34 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson posted six catches for 65 yards in the Week 16 game against the Baltimore Ravens, giving him 1,002 receptions for his career. He is the 10th player in NFL history to accomplish the feat.

Footballguys view: Johnson came out hot but the Texans offense didn't need to push the issue with the lead for the whole game. This is probably the last year that Andre Johnson will be drafted as a fantasy starter with the QB uncertainty in Houston next year.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins a gametime decision    Sat Dec 20, 06:37 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) will be a gametime decision Sunday, Dec. 21, after not practicing all week.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need a heads up here. The Texans will be starting Case Keenum at quarterback, and they may be playing without Hopkins. If you were counting on Hopkins, make sure to have another plan in place if he doesn't play.

  Texans | Andre Johnson probable     Fri Dec 19, 04:09 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is probable for Week 16.

Footballguys view: If Case Keenum starts, Johnson could have a revival, as the two combined for two multi-TD games last year. Baltimore's secondary is also an issue with more than one street free agent on the field.

  Texans | Andre Johnson puts in full practice    Thu Dec 18, 05:44 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 18, after being limited Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: It's been a long time since Johnson has been a factor, partially due to age and partially due to the fact that his quarterbacks are awful. That makes him a steady WR4 but not much else.

  Texans | Arian Foster limited Thursday    Thu Dec 18, 05:42 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hip) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, after sitting out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Footballguys view: Foster will get plenty of carries against the Ravens with Case Keenum throwing the ball, so we feel confident that he will put up some nice RB1 numbers this weekend.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins sits out    Thu Dec 18, 05:40 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 18.

Footballguys view: Hopkins might be held back a bit by the Case Keenum show, but should still be able to give you so plenty of points as a WR2 this week against the Baltimore Ravens and their secondary full of street free agents.

  Texans | Andre Johnson will play in Week 16    Thu Dec 18, 12:38 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion) has cleared the leagues concussion protocol and will play in the team's Week 16 game.

Footballguys view: With the insanity at quarterback (Case Keenum, really?), the matchup and Johnson's age, Johnson's production is a shadow of its old self. We see him as a high-end WR3, nothing more.

  Texans | Case Keenum expected to start    Thu Dec 18, 10:00 AM

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum is expected to start in Week 16.

Footballguys view: And so the continuing lack of a franchise quarterback - or even a consistent starter - will continue to hurt the Texans this year. We continue to be in the "throw it at the wall and see if it sticks" portion of the Texans season as Keenum was just signed off the Rams practice squad. Don't have him in your lineup this week--Championship Week for most--of all leagues.

  Texans | Andre Johnson has connection with backups    Wed Dec 17, 04:43 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has a pretty good connection with both QBs Thaddeus Lewis and Case Keenum, who will be battling for the start in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens. Lewis was coached by head coach Bill O'Brien back in college, and Lewis also worked with Johnson in the offseason in South Florida.

Footballguys view: Keenum connected with Johnson for five touchdown passes last year (including three in one game), and Johnson likes Keenum's approach at the QB position.

  Texans | Houston QB unknown until Sunday    Wed Dec 17, 04:29 PM

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he won't reveal who the starting quarterback will be this week prior to Sunday's game.

Footballguys view: If we were to guess, we'd look at Case Keenum as the starter for the Texans this week. He knows his teammates, and Keenum has good chemistry with Andre Johnson.

  Texans | Sign Ricky Stanzi    Tue Dec 16, 04:14 PM

The Houston Texans signed free-agent QB Ricky Stanzi (Jaguars) to the practice squad Tuesday, Dec. 16, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Of course they did. If you have a rocket arm and little accuracy, then the Texans want you on the roster. They needed to make this move with both Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tom Savage banged up. Stanzi has a skill set similar to that of Savage, but he's going to run the scout team. The Texans are going to start either Case Keenum or Thad Lewis at quarterback in Week 16.

  Texans | HOU will push Andre Johnson for pay cut    Tue Dec 16, 05:18 AM

The Houston Texans are expected to ask WR Andre Johnson to take a pay cut for future seasons, with an outright release a possibility if he refuses. Johnson will make $10.5 million in 2015 and $11 million in 2016.

Footballguys view: After the 2014 season, Johnson has $7.3 million in dead money remaining on his contract. We could see the two sides parting ways if Johnson is not open to taking a pay cut.

  Texans | Uzoma Nwachukwu re-signs    Mon Dec 15, 07:41 PM

The Houston Texans re-signed WR Uzoma Nwachukwu to their practice squad Monday, Dec. 15.


  Texans | Andre Johnson should play this week    Mon Dec 15, 05:25 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion), who sat out in Week 15, is looking good and is expected to play in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Johnson can get back in practice after dealing with his concussion last week. Johnson had to go through the NFL's protocol for concussions and get cleared by an independent doctor before being cleared to practice.

  Texans | Houston starting QB not decided yet    Mon Dec 15, 03:37 PM

Houston Texans QBs Case Keenum and Thaddeus Lewis will find out later this week which one of them will start versus the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Keenum has more experience after serving as a backup and spot starter for the Texans for years. Lewis has a stronger arm and is more athletic, but the team could choose to keep him as a backup.

  Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick has surgery    Mon Dec 15, 03:35 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) underwent surgery Monday, Dec. 15, on his broken tibia he suffered in Week 15. QB Tom Savage (knee) will miss at least this week's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Footballguys view: The Texans are in real trouble here. It's now going to be the Case Keenum or Thad Lewis show at quarterback.

  Texans | Tom Savage to have MRI    Mon Dec 15, 03:49 AM

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (knee), who was limping in the dressing room following a shot to the knees near the end of the game, will have an MRI on Monday, Dec. 15.

Footballguys view: Ryan Fitzpatrick has a broken leg, and that's what led to Savage getting in the game in Week 15. The strong-armed rookie made some stick throws, but he was off on several of his targets. If Savage can't go in Week 16, the Texans will turn to either Thad Lewis or Case Keenum.

  Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick has broken leg    Sun Dec 14, 03:34 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) suffered a broken leg in the team's Week 15 game and will miss the rest of the season.

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (leg) was carted off the field after suffering a leg injury in the team's Week 15 game. He will not return to the game.

Footballguys view: Tom Savage is in, and the Texans might be starting Thad Lewis next week against Baltimore. The Baltimore D/ST is looking like a great play if Fitzpatrick is out next week.
