 Latest Texans Player Notes
Jan 18 2018 - J.J. Watt
  DE J.J. Watt took a huge step forward in his rehab from a broken leg on Thursday. Watt posted a video on Twitter of him running on a treadmill, flashing two thumbs up at the end. It was his first time running since fracturing the tibial plateau in his left leg in Week 5 of the season. "BIGGGG DAYYY!!!! Progress!!!!!" Watt wrote in a caption accompanying the video. The 6-foot-6, 290-pound Watt has had each of his last two seasons derailed by injury, appearing in only eight of Houston's 32 games. "I'm great. I'm doing really well, very pleased with the progress," Watt told the Texans' official website.


Jan 2 2018 - Deshaun Watson
  QB Deshaun Watson is ahead of schedule as he recovers from a torn right anterior cruciate ligament, coach Bill O'Brien told reporters on Tuesday. Watson, who sustained the injury during a non-contact play in practice, could return in some capacity for the Texans' organized team activities that span from mid-April until mid-June. The 22-year-old initially was handed an eight-to-nine-month timeline for his rehab from his November surgery, which would have him set for training camp.


Jan 1 2018 - Nick Martin
  C Nick Martin had ankle surgery and is attacking his second rehabilitation in the past two years. One year after undergoing ankle surgery and missing his entire rookie season, Martin injured his other ankle and had the same procedure in December. Martin is expected to make a healthy return in time for next season, but the timetable for his offseason activity remains a fluid situation. Martin is regarded as the Texans' top offensive lineman. "Same surgery, been through it before, so I know how to handle it," Martin said Monday. "This time, I don't have to miss any of the 2018 season. I know how to get back."


Jan 1 2018 - D.J. Reader
  NT D.J. Reader avoided a major knee injury late in the season and didn't require surgery. Now, Reader is anticipating a fast return from a sprained knee that prompted the team to place him on injured reserve with two games remaining on the schedule. He's preparing for his second NFL season as a full-time starter. As the replacement for Vince Wilfork, Reader started 14 games and recorded a career-high 47 tackles with one sack.


Dec 31 2017 - DeAndre Hopkins
  WR DeAndre Hopkins was inactive Sunday because of a calf injury. It was the first game he has missed in his five-year career, starting all 79 games. Hopkins still led the NFL with 13 touchdown catches and finished second in receiving yards with 1,378.


Dec 31 2017 - Will Fuller
  WR Will Fuller V sustained a knee injury in the first half Sunday and was ruled out for the rest of the game.


Dec 31 2017 - T.J. Yates
  QB T.J. Yates completed 10 of- 5 passes for 112 yards to lead Houston to a 13-7 halftime lead. He finished 14 of 24 for 137 yards and was intercepted on the game's last play.


Dec 28 2017 - DeAndre Hopkins
  WR DeAndre Hopkins is expected to miss the first game of his five-year NFL career this weekend as the Houston Texans wrap up their season against the Indianapolis Colts, multiple outlets reported on Thursday. Hopkins sustained a calf injury during the Texans' 34-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Christmas. The 25-year-old has yet to practice on either Wednesday or Thursday this week, and Sunday's game between the Texans (4-11) and Colts (3-12) holds little value in the 2017 standings. Signed to a five-year, $81 million deal, Hopkins enters the final week of the season with a league-best 13 touchdown receptions to go along with 96 catches and 1,378 yards. Hopkins has amassed 413 receptions, 5,865 receiving yards and 36 touchdowns in 79 career games since being selected by Houston with the 27th overall pick of the 2013 draft.


Dec 28 2017 - Jadeveon Clowney
  OLB Jadeveon Clowney (knee, toe) missed practice.


Dec 28 2017 - Jeff Allen
  OT Jeff Allen (concussion) is in the NFL protocol.


Dec 28 2017 - DeAndre Hopkins
  WR DeAndre Hopkins (calf) didn't practice.


Dec 26 2017 - Corey Moore
  S Corey Moore sprained his knee and is likely out for the season.


Dec 26 2017 - Kevin Johnson
  CB Kevin Johnson bruised his knee Monday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, avoiding a major injury. Johnson was ruled out for the remainder of the game. "I'm fine," Johnson said. "Nothing serious."


Dec 26 2017 - Nick Martin
  C Nick Martin underwent successful ankle surgery after being placed on injured reserve last week, according to league sources not authorized to speak publicly. Martin is expected to make a healthy return in time for next season, but the timetable for his offseason activity remains a fluid situation. Martin is regarded as the Texans' top offensive lineman.


Dec 26 2017 - David Quessenberry
  OL David Quessenberry made his NFL debut on Christmas, and it was a significant victory regardless of what was on the scoreboard. "It was everything I dreamed of while I was going through my treatments," said an emotional Quessenberry, who was named a team captain for the Texans' 34-6 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday. "Getting out there and playing a full-speed game today was exactly how I'd hoped it went."


Dec 25 2017 - DeAndre Hopkins
  WR DeAndre Hopkins snagged a 3-yard touchdown pass from QB T,J, Yates with 12:30 left to play. Hopkins finished with four catches for 65 yards and a score. Hopkins' touchdown reception was of the spectacular variety, with Hopkins tipping the ball from one hand to another before making the grab while falling on top of a defender. It marked the lone highlight from an otherwise dismal Christmas Day performance by the reeling Texans.


Dec 25 2017 - Shane Lechler
  P Shane Lechler appeared in his 285th game and passed Sean Landeta for 15th in NFL history.


Dec 25 2017 - T.J. Yates
  QB T.J. Yates cleared concussion protocol after being removed from the game late in the first half. Taylor Heinicke made his NFL debut and played two series before Yates returned early in the third quarter after Heinicke suffered a concussion while being sacked.


Dec 23 2017 - Tom Savage
  QB Tom Savage was placed on injured reserve by the Houston Texans on Saturday, ending his season and perhaps his tenure with the club. Savage was diagnosed with a concussion that he sustained during the Dec. 9 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. The league office currently is investigating why Savage was allowed to re-enter the game for a few plays following a hit by linebacker Elvis Dumervil that caused the concussion and left Savage on the ground momentarily. Savage is scheduled to become a free agent after this season, and he did little during his eight starts with the Texans to improve his stock. He completed 56.1 percent of his passes with five touchdowns and six interceptions while leading Houston to a 1-7 record.


Dec 20 2017 - Braxton Miller
  WR Braxton Miller (concussion) is still in the NFL protocol.


Dec 20 2017 - Tom Savage
  QB Tom Savage (concussion) is still in the NFL protocol and out Sunday.

Dec 20 2017 - Jelani Jenkins
  LB Jelani Jenkins (concussion) is still in the NFL protocol.


Dec 20 2017 - David Quessenberry
  OT David Quessenberry was added to the Houston Texans' 53-man roster, the team announced. Quessenberry, who was a sixth-round pick out of San Jose in the 2013 NFL draft, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin T-lymphoblastic lymphoma three years ago. He has not played in a regular-season game in his NFL career. The 27-year-old Quessenberry had been on the Texans' non-football illness list since 2015, but he played in the preseason this summer. The Texans cut him prior to the regular season, however.


Dec 18 2017 - Shane Lechler
  P Shane Lechler was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, one of four penalties assessed on the special teams during a 45-7 road defeat to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Lechler said something to draw a penalty flag from referee Carl Cheffers. Afterward, Lechler declined to detail what transpired. He added that the Texans had more important things to worry about following this blowout loss.


Dec 18 2017 - DeAndre Hopkins
  WR DeAndre Hopkins caught his 12th touchdown of the season, breaking the franchise single-season record he established during the 2015 season. Hopkins accomplished the feat despite playing with three different quarterbacks this season.


Dec 18 2017 - Alfred Blue
  RB Alfred Blue led the Texans with 55 rushing yards on 12 carries against Jacksonville.


Dec 18 2017 - Lamar Miller
  RB Lamar Miller had a season-low 32 rushing yards against Jacksonville.


Dec 18 2017 - T.J. Yates
  QB T.J. Yates threw one touchdown pass, but was sacked four times and hit nine times overall. He completed only 12 of 31 passes for 128 yards and was intercepted once.


Dec 18 2017 - Nick Martin
  C Nick Martin was carted off with an ankle injury against the Jaguars.


Dec 18 2017 - Jeff Allen
  T Jeff Allen suffered a concussion against Jacksinville.


Dec 18 2017 - Jadeveon Clowney
  DE Jadeveon Clowney wasn't too impressed by Blake Bortles, even though the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback lit up the Houston Texans on Sunday. Bortles completed 21-of-29 passes for 326 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions on Sunday as the Jaguars secured their first postseason berth since 2007 with a 45-7 rout of the Texans. When asked if the maligned Bortles is getting better, the 24-year-old Clowney was quick with his assessment. "He's trash," Clowney said of Bortles, who has thrown for 903 yards with seven touchdowns and zero interceptions in December.


Dec 18 2017 - DeAndre Hopkins
  WR DeAndre Hopkins caught four passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.


Dec 18 2017 - T.J. Yates
  QB T.J. Yates completed 12 of 31 passes for 128 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.


Dec 13 2017 - Alfred Blue
  RB Alfred Blue has been cleared from a concussion, and is eligible to play this weekend.


Dec 13 2017 - Tom Savage
  QB Tom Savage (concussion) was still in the NFL protocol Wednesday and is out for Sunday's game.


Dec 13 2017 - Braxton Miller
  WR Braxton Miller (concussion) was still in the NFL protocol on Wednesday.


Dec 11 2017 - Dylan Cole
  ILB Dylan Cole got crushed on a sideline crack-back block that drew a penalty, but said he merely got the wind knocked out of him.


Dec 11 2017 - Kendall Lamm
  T Kendall Lamm suffered a concussion Sunday and was declared out for the remainder of the game. Lamm had briefly replaced left tackle Jeff Allen when Allen got banged up.


Dec 11 2017 - Will Fuller
  WR Will Fuller V returned after missing the past three games with cracked ribs and made an immediate impact. Fuller finished with three catches for 26 yards on five targets. He had a pair of first downs on catches in the first quarter.


Dec 11 2017 - Kaimi Fairbairn
  K Ka'imi Fairbairn continues to struggle mightily. The former Lou Groza award winner from UCLA missed an extra point wide left and had a 52-yard field-goal attempt hit the left upright. He has four missed kicks in the past two games, including a pair of missed field goals in a loss last week to the Tennessee Titans.


Dec 11 2017 - Brian Cushing
  LB Brian Cushing made an emotional return Sunday and was effective at an unfamiliar position. \ Although Cushing recorded five tackles and a half-sack and was a team captain in his first game back after serving a 10-game suspension for violating the NFL performance-enhancing drug policy.


Dec 11 2017 - C.J. Fiedorowicz
  TE C.J. Fiedorowicz still hopes to resume his NFL career after sustaining his third concussion this season and being placed on Injured Reseve. Fiedorowicz is evaluating his medical options and the Texans are taking their time while he continues to recuperate and haven't made any decisions on his status. Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said he expects Fiedorowicz back next season.


Dec 11 2017 - Jadeveon Clowney
  OLB Jadeveon Clowney didn't hold back his disappointment and frustration. The Texans were beaten, 26-16, by a San Francisco 49ers team that had won just two games entering Sunday. "I'm very upset," Clowney said. "Man, we're 4-9. I'm upset about that. We're a lot better than what our record says we are." Clowney briefly left the game with a leg injury, but walked it off on the sideline and went back in the game.


Dec 11 2017 - T.J. Yates
  QB T.J. Yates passed for 175 yards and produced a 100.6 passer rating in his first extended action since 2015. Yates was in for Texans quarterback Tom Savage , who left in the second quarter and engineered consecutive scoring drives upon entering the game, capping both with touchdown passes to DeAndre Hopkins. The latter gave Houston a 16-13 lead in the third quarter.


Dec 11 2017 - DeAndre Hopkins
  WR DeAndre Hopkins matched his franchise single-season record of 11 touchdown receptions set in 2015. He had two scoring grabs Sunday, Hopkins finished with 11 receptions for 149 yards and two touchdowns, but his fumble in Houston territory late in the fourth quarter resulted in the fourth Robbie Gould field goal.


Dec 11 2017 - Kendall Lamm
  LT Kendall Lamm suffered a concussion in the first quarter and did not return. Lamm became the fifth Texans player in two weeks to depart a game with a concussion. The Texans later lost QB Tom Savage to a concussion just prior to the intermission.


Dec 10 2017 - Tom Savage
  Houston Texans QB Tom Savage suffered a concussion in the second quarter and did not return for the second half on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers at NRG Stadium. Savage was slow to his feet after he was hit in the end zone by 49ers defensive end Elvis Dumervil with just under 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter. Savage entered the sideline medical evaluation tent following the drive and returned to the field when the Texans regained possession. However, at the 2:32 mark of the second quarter, backup T.J. Yates replaced Savage behind center, with Savage seen on the sideline lobbying to return to the field yet again. Savage completed 6 of 12 attempts for 63 yards and was sacked twice.


Dec 6 2017 - Bruce Ellington
  WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve.


Dec 6 2017 - C.J. Fiedorowicz
