  Texans | Andre Johnson sits out    Wed Oct 1, 04:40 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 1.

Footballguys view: This is probably just veteran rest, but Johnson is yet to give us a signature game to make him seem like a must start. Maybe the Cowboys sometimes decent, sometimes terrible defense will give him the opportunity to go off this weekend.

  Texans | Arian Foster not on practice field    Wed Oct 1, 04:35 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 1.

Footballguys view: You want to see Foster's practice participation trending up to feel better about playing and owning him, so this isn't the best news. If he gets a full practice in by the end of the week, it will look more like a precaution in hindsight, heading into a good matchup against Dallas.

  Texans | One signed, one cut    Wed Oct 1, 09:36 AM

The Houston Texans signed CB Jumal Rolle off the Green Bay Packers' practice squad and released RB Ronnie Brown.

Footballguys view: Brown may get picked up by another team looking for a veteran back, but he's nowhere near the same player he used to be.

  Texans | Arian Foster not 100 percent    Mon Sep 29, 01:18 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) said he was less than 100 percent during the team's Week 4 game but tried to help out the team. 'I just wasn't 100 percent healthy out there (Sunday),' Foster said. 'I didn't feel 100 percent myself, so I got some third downs in at the end of the game, just to try to help out. I'm glad I could make my play when my number was called.' Foster rushed for six yards on eight carries in Week 4 but did catch seven passes for 55 yards.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Foster didn't get his normal workload because of the health status of his hamstring. We'll see if he can get more rest and look more like his old self in the coming weeks.

  Texans | Andre Johnson fine after game    Sun Sep 28, 06:58 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) was active in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills, but he was forced to go in and have his injury evaluated during the game. 'I'm fine, I was more scared than anything because I felt a pop, so I went in and got checked,' Johnson said Sunday, Sept. 28, after the game.

  Texans | Arian Foster mostly ineffective    Sun Sep 28, 04:21 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was active in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills, but he was limited to six rushing yards on eight carries, and he had seven receptions for 55 yards.

Footballguys view: The Texans couldn't get anything going on the ground against the Bills tough defensive line, but Foster still salvaged a decent day in PPR leagues. It will be hard to bench him against the Cowboys next week even with the disappointing performance on the ground.

  Texans | Arian Foster limping    Sun Sep 28, 12:55 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is moving around with a slight limp. The team will monitor him early in the game and will determine his workload based on his movement.

Footballguys view: Foster looked spry going up for an early catch, so hopefully this wasn't as ominous as it sounded, although the Texans are mixing in Alfred Blue early to keep Foster fresh and his hamstring intact.

  Texans | Arian Foster expected to play    Sun Sep 28, 10:25 AM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday, Sept. 28.

Footballguys view: In addition, longtime Texans beat writer John McClain is reporting that Foster wouldn't be active if he wasn't ready for his full workload. There's always risk of re-injury with hamstrings, but Foster should be played until you are really strong at RB.

  Texans | Arian Foster likely to play?    Sat Sep 27, 04:53 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) remains a game-time decision, but he will probably play in Week 4, in the opinion of beat writer John McClain. Foster was close to playing last week.

Footballguys view: Last week saw a last minute deactivation of Foster, and a decent - but not fantastic -day by Alfred Blue. Foster is considered a low-end RB1 this week against Buffalo, but Blue wouldn't be more than a low-end RB2 if Foster is a no-go. Keep a close eye on this, but at least we'll know about Foster/Blue early as it's a 1pm EST game.

  Texans | Arian Foster a game-time decision    Fri Sep 26, 02:22 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Week 4, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: Foster is worth a play as an RB2 if he goes, re-injury risk and all, because the Texans should control the game against the Bills. If he can't go, Alfred Blue becomes an RB2 start.

  Texans | Andre Johnson practices in full    Thu Sep 25, 05:41 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) practiced in Thursday, Sept. 25, after being limited Wednesday, Sept. 24.

Footballguys view: Johnson should be a nice fantasy play against the Bills in Week 4. We like him as a low-end WR1 with upside.

  Texans | Arian Foster limited Thursday    Thu Sep 25, 05:38 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 25, for the second straight day.

Footballguys view: His status for Week 4 is still unknown at this time. If Foster plays, then we like him as a mid-level RB2 against Buffalo. If Foster misses the game, then rookie Alfred Blue takes over as the starter. He's a low-end RB2/flex play with a starter's workload.

  Texans | Ryan Fitzpatrick ready for reunion    Wed Sep 24, 10:43 PM

Houston Texans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick will get a chance to face his former team, the Buffalo Bills, in Week 4. It will be his first time facing his old team since leaving in the 2013 offseason. 'This is a special game for me. I think partly just because I've got so many great friends still that are over on the other side of the ball,' Fitzpatrick said Wednesday, Sept. 25.

  Texans | Arian Foster limited, still day-to-day    Wed Sep 24, 06:50 PM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) did some things in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24, but he remains 'day-to-day,' according to head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien said Foster will work out before the team's Week 4 game against the Buffalo Bills to determine if he can play. Foster was listed as limited in practice Wednesday. 'I've played through a lot in this league and hamstrings are the hardest thing to gauge because you don't know how it's going to fatigue, how it's going to react to a certain cut,' Foster said.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to have a different plan here in case Foster can't go. Hopefully, you were able to pick up rookie Alfred Blue off waivers last week. If Foster plays, he's a RB2 with upside. If Blue fills in, then he's a low-end RB2/flex play.

  Texans | DeAndre Hopkins to continue to be targeted    Wed Sep 24, 06:24 PM

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins will continue to be involved heavily in the game plan after making a spectacular one-handed catch in the Week 3 loss to the New York Giants. 'It wasn't really too much of a surprise to see him go up there and do that and it was a heck of a catch. But he was the guy that was aligned improperly. He's got to get aligned right so that the catch counts next time. We've got to do a better job of coaching that. He's a really, really good young player who has an excellent future. We need to do a better job of getting him the ball,' head coach Bill O'Brien said.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring), who is day-to-day with a hamstring injury, is unsure if he'll be able to return in Week 4 against the Buffalo Bills. RB Alfred Blue replaced Foster in Week 3 and ran for 78 yards on 13 carries in the loss. Foster has 55 carries for 241 yards in two games this year.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is considered day-to-day with his hamstring injury.

  Texans | Owen Daniels to take over    Mon Sep 22, 12:34 PM

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels will be relied on in the tight end position with TE Dennis Pitta (hip) out indefinitely. Daniels has experience in offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's system, and he has 10 catches for 70 yards and two touchdowns this year.

Footballguys view: Daniels knows the Kubiak system like the back of his hand. He's not quite the same player he used to be, but there will be targets there for him. Combined, the duo has been targeted 33 times in three games so far this year. Behind Daniels, we'll see an opportunity for rookie Crockett Gillmore when the team uses two-tight end sets.

  Texans | Andre Johnson quiet in loss    Sun Sep 21, 08:12 PM

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson (ankle) was able to play in Week 3 against the New York Giants, but he managed just four receptions for 24 yards despite a game-high 11 targets.

Footballguys view: Johnson's fantasy value actually went down when Ryan Fitzpatrick had to freelance to dig out of a hole. He's still a solid play at Buffalo next week, but it's hard to know what the Texans offense will look like week to week.

The Houston Texans have declared RB Arian Foster, WR DeVier Posey, LB Jadeveon Clowney, OT Jeff Adams, DL Louis Nix, SS Shiloh Keo, QB Tom Savage inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Alfred Blue gets the start, but this will be a committee approach in the Texans backfield today. Blue is a boom/bust flex play. Jonathan Grimes could also impress and get more work, and Ronnie Brown is the stalwart veteran the team could turn to in passing situations and if the youngsters let them down.

  Texans | Arian Foster long shot to play    Sun Sep 21, 09:36 AM

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) is a long shot to play in Week 3 Sunday, Sept. 21. RB Alfred Blue is expected to start.

Footballguys view: Blue will share a committee backfield with Jonathan Grimes and Ronnie Brown if Foster can't go. Because the amount of his workload is unknown and the Giants are a good run defense, we can only recommend Blue as an upside flex play.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (hamstring) was limited in practice again Friday, Sept. 19, and he is questionable for Week 3 against the New York Giants.

Footballguys view: There is no outward indication that Foster will sit, but Alfred Blue should be owned across leagues now, as he could inherit a valuable running game. Jonathan Grimes would also play a role, but Blue appeared to pass him on the depth chart in the first two weeks.
