  Texans | Arian Foster sitting    Fri Aug 1, 09:13 AM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster is not practicing Friday, Aug. 1.

Footballguys view: We'll want to see Foster practicing and playing in the preseason before we feel completely comfortable taking him in the early second round. He had an offseason that seemed to indicate good health, but he is already nicked up in camp. Those that fear Foster is close to used up are getting more fuel for the fire.

  Texans | Andre Johnson exits with strained hamstring    Tue Jul 29, 03:55 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (hamstring) left practice Tuesday, July 29, with a strained hamstring.

Footballguys view: Johnson stayed away from the team facility this offseason as he was unhappy with the perceived direction (down) of the offense and the quarterback play. Now he's back and banged up. The veteran needs to get back into football shape, but the team won't rush him back here.

  Texans | Andre Johnson more comfortable    Mon Jul 28, 02:35 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson said he's feeling more comfortable with QB Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Texans' offense.

Footballguys view: Johnson is kissing and making up with the Texans here. Fitzpatrick isn't a terrible quarterback, but he's one of the worst starters in the league. Johnson expressed his frustration with the direction of the offense earlier this year by staying away from the facility. The Texans weren't going to trade him, and when Johnson realized that he showed up.

  Texans | Arian Foster sits    Mon Jul 28, 02:31 PM

  Texans | Arian Foster leaves practice    Mon Jul 28, 12:39 AM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (undisclosed) left practice early Sunday, July 27, but the injury does not appear to be serious.

Footballguys view: Foster owners can breathe now, but this moment reminds us about Andre Brown's significant injury upside and even late-round pick Alfred Blue's chances of getting on the deep dynasty radar in the event of a Foster injury this year.

  Texans | Andre Johnson to be moved around    Sat Jul 26, 11:53 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson said he will be moved around to different spots in head coach Bill O'Brien's offensive system.

Footballguys view: The Texans need to be creative with the way they use Johnson this year. He was upset with their offensive direction this offseason, but he's not going anywhere. Johnson is going off the board at WR15 (4.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Texans | Jadeveon Clowney not 100 percent    Sat Jul 26, 02:13 PM

Houston Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney (hernia) said he's not 100 percent and has been limited.

Footballguys view: There's no need to rush him back until he's near full strength. Clowney can be an impact pass-rusher for the Texans in year one. We'll see if they can have him near 100 percent for the start of the regular season.

  Texans | Andre Johnson wants to end career with Texans    Fri Jul 25, 12:26 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson said 'That's the plan' when asked if he wants to finish his career with the team. He feels confident with the direction of the team after meeting with the front office. Johnson ended his holdout this week.

Footballguys view: He'd also like a Super Bowl, a good quarterback and a purple unicorn. Of the list of things he wants, the only one that sounds likely is finishing his career with the Texans. They won't trade him, and it looks like they will try and make him forget about the whole "400th rebuild during your career" thing with money. So it seems that Johnson's WR2 ranking is likely to remain the case unless his "Blue Light Special" quarterback group gets good or gets worse.

  Texans | Andre Johnson reports to camp    Fri Jul 25, 08:23 AM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson has reported to camp Friday, July 25. The two sides are still in contact about an extension.

Footballguys view: As expected. We remain pessimistic about his quarterback situation, which keeps him as a WR2 rather than the low-end WR1 he could be with a better QB.

  Texans | Andre Johnson visits team facility    Tue Jul 22, 01:18 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson visited the team facility Monday, July 21. Johnson has visited the facility a few times this offseason. According to a league source, it does not mean Johnson will report to camp on time.

Footballguys view: Johnson was never going to get traded. His salary has too much dead money for the Texans to absorb. He may not be happy with the quarterback situation, but he'll get over it. Johnson's current ADP is WR16 (4.04) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Houston Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney (hernia) wants to be cleared by Saturday, July 26 in order to participate in training camp. He is recovering from sports hernia surgery.

Footballguys view: The Texans are not going to rush the 2014 number one overall pick back until he's ready. Expect the team to take it easy on him so they'll have Clowney ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

  Texans | Arian Foster: Andre Johnson is Houston    Wed Jul 16, 12:40 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster said WR Andre Johnson, who reportedly has asked for a trade this offseason, is an embodiment of the city of Houston, and he has more star power than the city's younger sports standouts. 'He is Houston,' Foster said. 'I remember when I had my little run where I had like two back-to-back great seasons. I felt like this city loves me, they love me here. Everywhere I go, this is still Dre's city. I don't care if James Harden is walking around, Dwight Howard, whatever. This is Andre Johnson's city. He is Houston. That's what it means more than anything. He's been a staple here for so long.'

Footballguys view: Johnson is unlikely to be traded because of the salary-cap implications on the Texans. He's unhappy with the direction of the offense and wants out, but Johnson is likely to stay in Houston for at least this season.

  Texans | Whitney Mercilus becoming more versatile    Mon Jul 14, 11:59 PM

Houston Texans LB Whitney Mercilus has been working on dropping back in coverage this offseason, and he said he is excited about his role in defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel's scheme. 'More drops into coverage instead of solely rushing, rushing, rushing,' Mercilus said. 'So now, (I am) understanding concepts and formations of the offense and being able to drop back into coverage, understanding what are my keys, what am I reading for, and reacting between pass and run, especially when I do have to drop back into coverage.'

Footballguys view: The Texans are going to have a suffocating defense in 2014. Too bad their offense won't be up to snuff.

  Texans | Opinion: Andre Johnson won't be traded    Fri Jul 11, 09:52 AM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson 'is not going to be traded,' in the opinion to John McClain. Houston wants to avoid giving Johnson the $1 million workout bonus that he passed up by not participating in offseason activities or guarantee his 2015 salary. They don't want to create a precedent that can be manipulated by DE J.J. Watt's agent in the future. McClain said that 'Any 33-year-old ... anybody doesn't walk away from' the $10 million that Houston owes Johnson.

Footballguys view: McClain is the best beat writer for the Texans, so we trust his word. In the immortal words of Nick Saban "this ain't fantasy football." It sounds great to put Johnson with the Browns or the Seahawks (or any other team), but the reality is we're unlikely to see the veteran receiver moved. He's frustrated with the team's lack of direction offensively and their rag-tag group of quarterbacks. We can't blame him for the way he feels, but at the end of the day he'll get over it.

  Texans | Andre Johnson willing to restructure deal    Thu Jul 10, 09:05 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson is willing to restructure his contract to help potential suitors fit under the salary cap, but he won't take a pay cut, a source told Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Johnson has a $14.6 million cap number this year with around $11.9 million in dead money. This is what's likely to keep him from being traded.

  Texans | Four teams interested in Andre Johnson    Thu Jul 10, 05:13 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson is wanted via trade by at least four teams, according to a source. The names of the four teams were undisclosed.

Footballguys view: At least. The contract and demands from Houston might have paired the teams down to four serious and willing teams but you have to imagine there are more out there who could get involved. He'd be an interesting fit in several teams and Cleveland has been a hot rumor since Josh Gordon got into his latest batch of trouble. Maybe he'll join the Cavs if LeBron goes back home.

  Texans | Duane Brown ready for camp    Thu Jul 10, 04:30 PM

Houston Texans OT Duane Brown recently said he's been working out, reviewing playbooks and getting his mind right until training camp begins.

Footballguys view: He'll have to hit the ground running as the line has to be on point with the question marks at quarterback. He'll have to prove he can open lanes for Arian Foster as well as defend pass-rushers and keep Ryan Fitzpatrick (or whoever) on his feet.

  Texans | Brian Cushing working out    Thu Jul 10, 02:02 PM

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans LB Brian Cushing (knee) said he has been working out and believes he will be ready for the start of the regular season. He has not put a specific timetable for when he will be able to start practicing.

Footballguys view: Good news for Houston fans--this defense could be completely stacked with JJ Watt and rookie Jadeveon Clowney as well as Cushing. It had better be because we aren't sure the offense has the juice (especially under center) to carry the team to wins.

  Texans | Alan Bonner sees time in slot    Thu Jul 10, 01:44 PM

Houston Texans WR Alan Bonner received some time as a slot receiver during offseason workouts and indicated he is also in the running for a return job.

Footballguys view: While in and of itself this piece of information might not seem vital, given that Bonner is at best the third behind DeAndre Hopkins and Andre Johnson. It becomes more interesting if Johnson holds out or is traded though. A sixth rounder in the 2013 NFL draft, Bonner flashed ability in minicamps and OTAs last year but ended up on injured reserve instead. Originally tagged as a returner, his moves after the catch could make him an interesting slot player. Don't draft him now, but keep him in mind depending on what happens with Johnson.
