The Houston Chronicle considers Jerrell Powe the favorite to break camp as the Texans' starting nose tackle.

Third-rounder Louis Nix missed OTAs, minicamp, and all of training camp so far with a knee issue that has carried over from last season at Notre Dame. Powe (6'2/330), has experience in DC Romeo Crennel's defense, but has just one career start under his belt. It's a weak spot on Houston's defense.

Arian Foster (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday.

Foster only missed two days with what the team called a "minor" injury. It was worth noting nonetheless after Foster battled injuries all last summer and ended up missing half the season following back surgery. We don't have a problem with Foster and his second-round ADP, but owners are taking on plenty of risk.

Arian Foster is sidelined at Texans camp with what is believed to be a hamstring injury.

Although the Texans insist Foster's injury is "minor," it's pretty troubling he's already missing time after battling hamstring woes over the years. "He’s dealing with something," coach Bill O’Brien said. "He’ll be fine. He’ll be back. It’s a minor deal. You know, it’s a long season. He’ll be out there."

Texans signed RB Tim Cornett, formerly of the Cardinals.

UNLV's all-time leading rusher, Cornett lasted just days in Cards camp after initially signing with Bruce Arians' club as an undrafted free agent. He offers plus measurables (4.48, 10'5" broad jump at 6'0/209), and is entering a prime landing spot with Arian Foster on the shelf, and Andre Brown as the lone established NFL player behind Foster. Monitor Cornett in deeper leagues.

Tom Savage opened camp as the third-string quarterback.

Case Keenum is getting the second-team reps behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick. On the first day of camp, Savage reportedly "struggled to find any consistency and missed his targets several times." Still, we'd tentatively expect the fourth-round rookie to pass up Keenum before camp is over. Savage was hand-picked by new coach Bill O'Brien.

Texans waived/injured WR Alan Bonner and OG Cody White.

Bonner suffered a fractured foot in one of the first practices of training camp. A 2013 sixth-round pick, Bonner spent his entire rookie year on I.R. with a hamstring injury. He wasn't a compelling NFL prospect from the get-go.

Texans OG Cody White tore his Achilles' tendon in Saturday's training camp practice and is done for the year.

A former UDFA out of Illinois State, White appeared in one game last season, blocking on special teams. He probably wasn't going to make the roster.

Texans signed OLB Quentin Groves.

Groves, 30, was cut by the Browns last month and had previously worked out for the Titans, Redskins, Patriots, and Jets. While the former second-round pick never developed into an impact pass-rusher, Groves is a serviceable reserve who excels on special teams. He has a legit shot at the 53-man roster.
Jul 27 - 10:28 AM

Texans signed OLB Lawrence Sidbury to a one-year contract.

A 2009 fourth-round pick of the Falcons, Sidbury spent all last season on injured reserve. He should provide depth behind starters Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus, with an outside shot at making the 53-man roster.
Jul 26 - 10:41 PM

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph (toe) was active for the start of camp.

Joseph sat out the offseason program recovering from surgery on a toe that bothered him all last season. Now healthy, Joseph will look to bounce back from his inconsistent 2013 campaign.
Jul 26 - 1:35 PM

No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney is participating in the first day of Texans camp.

There was some concern offseason sports hernia surgery would keep Clowney from participating early in camp, but he avoided the active/PUP list and is in uniform for the first practice. The Texans will likely ease Clowney in, but there is no concern about his status moving forward.
Jul 26 - 9:51 AM

Andre Johnson reported to training camp on Friday.

We can all breathe. Johnson was in Houston talking with Texans brass earlier this week, leading many to believe he would report to camp in time for Saturday's first practice. He did just that. Johnson's not going anywhere this year, and will be suiting up for the Texans and catching passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick. He should still dominate targets, but Johnson's YPR average may take a blow. Even at 33, Johnson is still one of the premier receivers in football.
Jul 25 - 8:54 AM

Mike Thomas is considered the frontrunner for the Texans' No. 3 wideout job.

It's not a position that's likely to carry fantasy relevance, but Thomas is penciled in as the Texans' slot receiver between "X" Andre Johnson, and "Z" DeAndre Hopkins. An annual disappointment, 27-year-old Thomas can also return punts.
Jul 24 - 2:28 PM

No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney avoided active/PUP to open Texans camp.

Clowney underwent offseason sports hernia surgery. He passed the Texans' initial team physical, and will likely be eased in to camp. Clowney will play outside 'backer across from Whitney Mercilus in Romeo Crennel's 3-4 defense.
Jul 24 - 2:23 PM

Texans signed RT Tyson Clabo to a two-year contract.

Clabo, 33 in October, will push incumbent RT Derek Newton after second-year OT Brennan Williams was released this week. Newton surrendered six sacks and 37 quarterback hurries as a 16-game starter last season, while also taking a league-worst 13 penalties and grading out as a bottom-five tackle at PFF. Clabo wasn't much better as a 15-game starter for the Dolphins. He gave up 11 sacks and 31 hurries. We'll give Newton the slight edge in this battle.
