Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) participated fully in practice Saturday, Oct. 18 and is probable for Monday, Oct. 20.

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (hand) participated fully in practice Saturday, Oct. 18 and is probable for Monday, Oct. 20.

  Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick keeping job    Fri Oct 10, 06:48 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the starting quarterback even though he has struggled at times this season, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. 'He's our starter,' O'Brien said. 'The film never lies. What the film shows us is that everybody on the offense has to play better. The line has to play better. The backs have to play better. The tight ends. The receivers. We've got to coach better. We've got to get the players to understand what we want. When we do that, all the positions will (play) better, including quarterback.'

Footballguys view: Texans fans probably want to see what Ryan Mallett can do, but the brass won't pull the trigger on a change unless Fitzpatrick really melts down or the Texans fall out of playoff contention. Keep Mallett on your 2QB/QB Flex/Deep Dynasty radar.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney running and cutting    Fri Oct 10, 04:18 PM

Head coach Bill O'Brien indicated that Clowney could return in Week 7 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night, which is six weeks since Clowney's surgery. Clowney's chances of playing in Week 7 are 50/50.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster had 20 carries for 109 yards and two touchdowns to go along with three catches for 32 yards in the team's Week 6 loss Thursday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: What hamstring injury? Foster has been able to play at an incredibly high level over the last two weeks even though he's been a bit limited during the week of practice by a hamstring. Start him every week he's in the lineup.

  Texans | Breakout game for Andre Johnson     Fri Oct 10, 12:15 AM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson caught seven passes for 99 yards and scored his first touchdown of the year Thursday, Oct. 9. His seven catches and 99 yards were both season highs.

  Texans | Ryan Mallett could receive his chance    Thu Oct 9, 04:39 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallett will see his chance as the starting quarterback if the team endures a long losing streak this season. Mallett has attempted just nine passes in four seasons in the league. The team has an investment in Mallett for their future, and they'd like to see how he fares in an extended audition versus real NFL competition.

Footballguys view: We're interested to see how Mallett does now that he's out of New England. He has a strong arm, and Mallett is your traditional pocket passer. That is just what head coach Bill O'Brien loves, and Mallett needed a fresh start after backing up Tom Brady for years. If Ryan Fitzpatrick struggles (more than normal), then the Texans could make a switch to Mallett.

Footballguys view: Foster will play, and he's a must start in Week 6. He was still dealing with this hamstring injury and had a monster game last week. Foster may not duplicate that on a short week, but he's certainly worth starting.

  Texans | Andre Johnson questionable    Wed Oct 8, 05:42 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 8, and is questionable for Week 6 against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Oct. 9.

Footballguys view: Watch this closely since the game is on Thursday night. Johnson may not be able to play on a short week. Without Johnson, the Texans would have a tough time keeping up with the Colts through the air.

  Texans | Arian Foster good for Week 6    Wed Oct 8, 09:22 AM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is good to go for the Week 6 game Thursday, Oct. 9, according to Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners should be looking to Foster as a RB1 once again. Yes, this hamstring injury has been hanging around--but last week Foster was able to go off for a monster fantasy day. This week against a Colts defense that allows over 100 yards rushing per game, Foster should be able to perform up to expectations.
