  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 | 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 | Andre Johnson expected to be out    Sun Dec 14, 09:52 AM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion) is expected to be out for Week 15 Sunday, Dec. 14.

  Texans | Andre Johnson a game-time decision?    Fri Dec 12, 05:23 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (concussion) is still going through the concussion protocol, and he's listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts. He was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 12, and head coach Bill O'Brien said a decision on whether Johnson will play this week will likely be made just before game time Sunday, Dec. 14.

Footballguys view: Johnson hasn't bee putting up great numbers anyway, so he wasn't that attractive of an option to begin with. Set your lineups without him for now. DeAndre Hopkins could more targets if Johnson is out, but he'll get more attention too.

  Texans | Arian Foster breaks record    Mon Dec 8, 08:45 AM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster had 24 carries for 127 yards Sunday, Dec. 7. He broke RB Priest Holmes' record for the most 100-yard games by an undrafted player with his 32nd 100-yard rushing game.

Footballguys view: Foster has been a revelation as a pro. Coming out of the University of Tennessee, Foster had an injury-prone label. He was a standout player at the Senior Bowl, but sustained yet another knee injury on the third day of practice. The injuries were enough for Foster to fall undrafted, and he became such a find for the Texans.
