Bruce Ellington has cleared the league's concussion protocol.

He'll be back this week after missing Week 2. Ellington will fight for targets behind DeAndre Hopkins but isn't a reliable fantasy option for Week 3.
Sep 20 - 3:37 PM

Will Fuller (collarbone) has been ruled out for Week 3 against the Patriots.

Fuller was back at practice this week, but he still needs time to recover from the broken collarbone. Bruce Ellington (concussion) will be back for Houston this week to play alongside DeAndre Hopkins and Braxton Miller.
Sep 20 - 3:36 PM

Alfred Blue (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

Blue injured his ankle back in August and has been sidelined since. He may need a week of practice before returning. Blue is no more than the No. 3 back in Houston behind Lamar Miller and rookie D'Onta Foreman.
Sep 20 - 1:54 PM

Ryan Griffin is out of the league's concussion protocol.

As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks, Griffin should be good to go in a homecoming game against the Patriots. He played college ball at UConn.
Sep 20 - 1:01 PM

Texans signed CB Johnthan Banks.

The former second-round bust appeared in nine games between the Bucs, Lions and Bears last season. He provides depth for a Texans secondary dealing with injuries to Johnathan Joseph and Kevin Johnson.
Sep 19 - 7:36 PM

Will Fuller (collarbone) returned to practice on Monday.

It's a potential sign Fuller could return for Week 3. The Houston Chronicle reported in early August that Fuller would likely miss "2-3 months," but Fuller is an elite athlete in optimal condition, and he is capable of beating a lengthy timetable like that. Either way, he's not much of a fantasy consideration.
Sep 18 - 5:55 PM

Texans re-signed WR Andy Jones.

The Texans initially claimed Jones off waivers from the Cowboys at final cuts, then cut him, and are now re-signing him. He's not really on the radar.
Sep 18 - 4:27 PM

Texans coach Bill O'Brien is hopeful TE Ryan Griffin (concussion) returns this week.

He said the same about TE Stephen Anderson, who is also dealing with a concussion. With C.J. Fiedorowicz on injured reserve with a concussion of his own, Griffin should handle the bulk of the tight end work once healthy, but Anderson has more upside as a pass catcher and could work his way into a big role. Neither player will be an exciting streaming option this week against the Patriots.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Texans LT Duane Brown is willing to hold out half the season.

La Canfora says, barring a new deal, Brown will not report to the team until after the Week 7 bye "at the earliest." This may just be public posturing from his negotiating team with the Texans still unwilling to come to the table, but it makes sense for Brown to take the hold out all the way at this point. Brown needs to spend at least eight games on the active roster to prevent his contract from tolling.

Texans signed G/T Jah Reid.

Reid has played with both the Ravens and Chiefs in his career. The Texans need help on the offensive line, but Reid is not the answer. Doing what it takes to bring in holdout LT Duane Brown would go a long way.
Sep 16 - 11:14 AM

Texans RCB Kevin Johnson is out 4-6 weeks with a "Grade 2" left MCL sprain.

It's a huge blow losing a player the Texans proactively let A.J. Bouye walk in favor of playing. Johnson was the team's first-round pick in 2015 and has flashed promise when healthy, but he has now suffered two foot fractures and what amounts to a torn knee ligament since entering the league. The Texans will be forced to turn to Browns castoff Marcus Burley in nickel packages alongside Kareem Jackson and 34-year-old LCB Johnathan Joseph.
Sep 15 - 3:39 PM

Texans CB Kevin Johnson's left knee injury is not considered serious.

None of his tests showed any tears or signs of structural damage. Marcus Burley spelled Johnson at cornerback after he left Thursday against Cincinnati.
Sep 15 - 2:14 PM

Texans CB Johnathan Joseph underwent an MRI on his injured right shoulder.

Joseph bowed out of Thursday night's game with a bad shoulder but his injury isn't considered serious. His first MRI showed no major damage and he'll have another one on Friday to confirm the diagnosis. Joseph has nine days to get ready for Week 3 against New England.
Sep 15 - 1:54 PM

J.J. Watt aggravated his dislocated finger in Thursday's Week 2 win over the Bengals.

Watt first suffered the injury in Week 1 and admitted his left ring finger was "pretty messed up" after Thursday's win. "I'm honestly kind of scared to take my glove off," he said after the game. "I honestly don't know what it looks like." Even with the injury, Watt still logged six tackles including the game-ender on Thursday night.
Sep 15 - 1:27 PM

Braxton Miller caught 2-of-3 targets for 10 yards in the Texans' Week 2 win over the Bengals.

Miller also got called for a personal foul. The 2016 third-rounder has 17 catches through 12 NFL games.
