Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes led the team with 43 yards rushing on only five carries last week, but he is expected to remain a part-time player,

  Texans | Jaelen Strong placed on IR    Sat Dec 10, 01:29 PM

Houston Texans WR Jaelen Strong (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 10. The team also promoted practice squad CB Denzel Rice to their active roster.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of Arizona State in 2015, Strong has yet to play up to his potential. The Texans drafted two wide receivers this year (Will Fuller, Braxton Miller), so Strong is competing for a spot on the roster when he returns in 2017.

  Texans | Will Fuller not on injury report    Fri Dec 9, 08:07 PM

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 9, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

Footballguys view: Fuller is a good boom/bust WR3/Flex against the Colts secondary that allowed Robby Anderson to get open deep multiples times on Monday night.

  Texans | Full practice for Will Fuller     Thu Dec 8, 09:23 PM

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (hip) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: Fuller hit the rookie wall a while back and it fell on him. He has seen an uptick in targets the last two weeks and showed potential. We like his upside but he isn't reliable, so we have him as a low-end WR3.

  Texans | Lamar Miller limited at practice    Thu Dec 8, 09:17 PM

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

Footballguys view: The injury and an overall poor offense means Miller could have some tough road to run this weekend. The Colts are a bad defense, but they might stack the box and make Brock Osweiler beat them in the air, something he struggles with. Miller is a borderline RB2/RB3 this week. It's a great matchup in theory, but the ribs and the offense dampen the upside.

'There's two fractures in my back, but those are things you have to push through,' Cushing said. 'Obviously, it's painful, and I'm not able to get as many reps as I want in practice right now, but I'll be out there Sunday with my team.'

  Texans | Braxton Miller has bruise, sprain    Wed Dec 7, 11:46 AM

Updating previous reports, Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (shoulder) has a bruised and sprained right shoulder, but exams didn't show any structural damage.

Footballguys view: Miller could be back on the field this week, but we'd only have him as a desperation 'what the heck' flex against the Colts on Sunday.

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (shoulder) is 'doing OK' and has a chance to play in Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: We've got Miller as a 'what the heck' flex if he plays against the Colts on Sunday. The Colts have the 28th-ranked pass defense and allow and average of 273.3 passing yards per game.

  Texans | Six grabs for C.J. Fiedorowicz    Sun Dec 4, 09:18 PM

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz managed a team-high six receptions for 44 yards in the Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers. He was targeted a team-high nine times, too.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz is a favorite target for QB Brock Osweiler, but he misses out on some touchdowns. Once again, TE Ryan Griffin got into the end zone instead of Fiedorowicz. That makes Fiedorowicz more of a TE2 on a weekly basis.

  Texans | Ryan Griffin gets into end zone    Sun Dec 4, 09:17 PM

  Texans | Jonathan Grimes provides relief    Sun Dec 4, 09:16 PM

Houston Texans RB Jonathan Grimes rushed five times for 43 yards in the Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers and he added one catch for 15 yards on his only target.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on the Texans backfield going forward. Lamar Miller went to the locker room with a rib injury during the game against the Packers. Make sure he practices in full at some point next week before trusting him against the Colts in Week 14.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins snaps TD drought    Sun Dec 4, 09:13 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins posted three receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers. He was targeted eight times.

Footballguys view: Hopkins hasn't been this productive in some time...but it was largely due to garbage time against the Packers. Next week against the Colts, we'll have Hopkins as a WR3 option again.

  Texans | Lamar Miller mostly bottled up    Sun Dec 4, 09:13 PM

Footballguys view: Clowney being out should help a hobbled Aaron Rodgers' chances of success in Lambeau today.

Houston Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney (wrist, elbow) was downgraded from questionable to out Saturday, Dec. 3, and will not travel to face the Green Bay Packers in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Aaron Rodgers just got a little more enticing for fantasy owners this week. The Texans defense will be reeling without Clowney against a passing game with Rodgers that can get ultra-hot in a moment's notice.

  Texans | Another full practice for Will Fuller    Fri Dec 2, 05:10 PM

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) was a full participant at practice for the third consecutive day Friday, Dec. 2.

Footballguys view: Fuller is a tough sell in your lineup because you are counting on Brock Osweiler, but he does have a high ceiling against a suspect Packers secondary in a game that should force the Texans to pass to keep up with Aaron Rodgers.

  Texans | Will Full has full practice    Thu Dec 1, 06:47 PM

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Footballguys view: Will Fuller hit the rookie wall early and then it collapsed on him. We would sue the construction company, but as that's not our choice, we'll just continue to avoid Fuller for the most part. We think he has talent, but it may take time to find consistency, especially with the frequently messy play of Brock Osweiler. Until he and his quarterback show us more reliability, Fuller is no more than a WR7.

  Texans | C.J. Fiedorowicz limited    Thu Dec 1, 06:41 PM

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz's game has been rather up and down the past few weeks and we aren't very excited about his prospects against Green Bay. Normally you can throw against the Packers but last week they clamped down, and if they can continue that trend the Texans are going to struggle. We expect the Texans to do just that which means Fiedorowicz is no more than a middle-of-the-road TE2 this week.

  Texans | Lamar Miller still limited    Thu Dec 1, 06:36 PM

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

Footballguys view: Miller is going up against a solid run defense, and has a quarterback who does him no favors because of inconsistency. We think he'll get enough carries but not find enough room to run which makes him no more than a borderline RB2/RB3.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

  Texans | C.J. Fiedorowicz limited    Wed Nov 30, 05:25 PM

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

  Texans | Lamar Miller listed as limited    Wed Nov 30, 05:15 PM

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (ankle, ribs) was limited during practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.
