  Texans | Tom Savage likely out    Mon Dec 11, 10:35 AM

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) is unlikely to start in Week 15, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: Savage was twitching after he was initially concussed in the game against the 49ers. Somehow he was back out on the field after that, but not for long before T.J. Yates replaced him. Yates threw a couple of touchdowns to DeAndre Hopkins, but this week against the Jaguars might not be as fruitful.

  Texans | T.J. Yates likely to start    Mon Dec 11, 10:33 AM

Houston Texans QB T.J. Yates is likely to start in Week 15 in place of QB Tom Savage (concussion), according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: Yates came in for Tom Savage on Sunday against the 49ers and threw for 175 yards and two touchdowns in the loss. This upcoming game against the Jaguars should prove to be much more difficult for Yates and the Texans passing game.

  Texans | Tom Savage leaves game    Sun Dec 10, 02:32 PM

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage (undisclosed) was taken to the locker room after suffering an undisclosed injury in Week 14.

Footballguys view: TJ Yates is in and connecting with DeAndre Hopkins. Savage appeared to have a seizure and briefly re-entered the game in a sequence that will be one of the most-talked about of the week after a brutal Sunday night game last week turned the discussion to player safety in football.

  Texans | Will Fuller not on injury report    Fri Dec 8, 05:49 PM

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

Footballguys view: Fuller is back this week, but he's only a big play desperation WR3/Flex option because Tom Savage isn't nearly as effective with the deep ball as Deshaun Watson.

  Texans | Braxton Miller ruled out    Fri Dec 8, 05:44 PM

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and has been ruled out for Week 14.

Footballguys view: Andre Ellington and Stephen Anderson are both options to play in the slot with Miller and Bruce Ellington out this week. Anderson becomes a TE1 with this added role and Andre Ellington a PPR running back desperation play.

  Texans | Braxton Miller improving    Thu Dec 7, 09:39 PM

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) is 'trending in a better direction,' according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: Miller looked good last week until the concussion, and the San Francisco matchup is great. We just don't have any idea if 'trending in a better direction' translates to 'is playing this week.' As that's the case, it's best to keep him on the shelf.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) was able to take part in practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Dec. 6.

Footballguys view: It would be good for the Texans to get Fuller back this week if at all possible. They will be without Bruce Ellington (hamstring) and could use Fuller as a starter opposite DeAndre Hopkins. Check back to see if he can fully participate later in the week.

  Texans | Two Texans sent to IR    Tue Dec 5, 05:20 PM

Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) and TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (concussion) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, Dec. 5.

Footballguys view: Ellington being lost for the season hurts their depth at the WR position, but they could be getting Will Fuller (ribs) back this week. Fiedorowicz has suffered three concussions over the last 12 months and his future in football is in serious doubt. Stephen Anderson will take over as the starting TE for the Texans this week.

  Texans | Stephen Anderson surprises in Week 13    Sun Dec 3, 09:15 PM

Houston Texans TE Stephen Anderson finished with five receptions for 79 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: Anderson is going to be the starting tight end for Houston going forward, and he could definitely set up shop in the TE1 ranks because the Texans are down to their #5 or lower receiver playing opposite DeAndre Hopkins until Will Fuller can come back. He should be added in all but the most shallow bench leagues this week.

  Texans | Tom Savage limits turnovers    Sun Dec 3, 09:13 PM

Houston Texans QB Tom Savage completed 31 of his 49 pass attempts for 365 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 13 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: Savage fought to the end and actually played well (for him) considering that he lost two wide receivers and a tight end during this game, although we should also chalk some of this up to the Titans soft pass defense. Savage does seem to have enough going on to keep some pulse of fantasy value for at least one target other than DeAndre Hopkins against San Francisco next week, assuming the team doesn't turn to TJ Yates.

  Texans | Braxton Miller leaves game    Sun Dec 3, 03:28 PM

Houston Texans WR Braxton Miller (concussion) suffered a concussion in Week 13 and will not return to the game.

Footballguys view: The Texans are down to using Andre Ellington as a wide receiver. Next week is a good matchup against the 49ers, but the Texans have lost three passcatchers to injuries today and Will Fuller has been out for multiple weeks with a rib injury.

Houston Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz (head) left the team's Week 13 game and is being evaluated for a concussion.

Footballguys view: Fiedorowicz already had two concussions this year, so this would certainly be a season-ender. Stephen Anderson is the best healthy tight end on the Texans roster right now.

Houston Texans WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in Week 13 and is considered questionable to return.

  Texans | Lamar Miller listed as limited    Thu Nov 30, 05:28 PM

Houston Texans RB Lamar Miller (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

Footballguys view: Miller will see a lot of carries but also a lot of a attention, which will leave him a bit of a mixed bag. We think he is on the cusp of Rb2/RB3 numbers and if Tennessee manages to get ahead on the scoreboard, the Texans might abandon the run game.

Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 30.
