Ervin tore his patellar tendon in Week 4 and is out for the season.

Week 15: at Jacksonville Jaguars

All RB vs JAX

FBG says: Tough matchup. Lamar Miller might be the most consistent running back in the league and we are not sure that is a compliment. Over his last seven games, Miller has between 51 and 61 yards rushing. It does not matter if he had just 10 carries or if he had 22 carries, or if it is a bad matchup or a good matchup he seemingly gets you somewhere between 50-60 yards every game. The issue for the Texans is that their offensive line is currently ranked by Matt Bitonti as the second-worst offensive line in football and if it is the second worst it cannot be by much as every one of their starters has struggled this season. The Jaguars are a unit who has really grown since the start of the season when they were struggling against the run allowing 149 yards per game over their first four games. Since that point, over their last nine games, they have only allowed 73 yards rushing per game and have only allowed one rushing touchdown over their last nine games which is the best in football. The Jaguars are expected to get one of the best linebackers in football back this week which will only help their case as Telvin Smith has cleared concussion protocol this week and will help improve this already elite front seven led by their defensive line with Calais Campbell, Malik Jackson, and quite possibly the most improved defensive lineman in football in Yannick Ngakoue.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs CIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 16 / 0 rec)

Another high snap player, Ervin remains getting work as a running back and slot wide receiver. He caught three passes on the night and is was mainly in the middle of the field. He did have one pass that Watson hung him out to dry in the middle of the field and another that was in the flats that was thrown behind him. He did have a reception wiped out due to an illegal formation that would have been at least 11 extra yards on his day. Ervin is getting touches and they will continue to add up.

2017 Week 1 vs JAX (3 / 8 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 18 / 0 rec)

It was an interesting today for Ervin and he had 71 all-purpose yards on the day. They moved him around to wide receiver, running back and returner. He did most of his work in the slot catching 4 passes for 18 yards. Ervin is still learning the position but it is clear that the Texans are trying to work him into the offense to make him a play maker. Also, Ervin had 8 yards on three carries but there was not much to the running game for the Texans on the day.
