Shark Bites

Texans DE/OLB Jadeveon Clowney (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. He missed practice all week, but HC Bill O'Brien said Friday that he expects Clowney to play, according to the Houston Chronicle. We'll confirm his status Sunday morning.

Texans RB Alfred Blue (concussion) isn’t listed on the final injury report and will play against the Jaguars on Sunday. He’s not a fantasy option but figures to steal a handful of touches from RB Lamar Miller.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins (toe) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Jaguars after sitting out on both Thursday and Friday. HC Bill O’Brien said Friday afternoon that he expects Hopkins to play. We’ll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. Even at less than 100% and in a brutal matchup, Hopkins would be extremely tough to bench in season-long fantasy leagues.

Texans QB Tom Savage (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. QB T.J. Yates draws the start but isn’t a fantasy option in the nightmare matchup.

Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins did not practice on Thursday and is listed on the injury report with a toe. It's unclear if Hopkins just got the day off or is dealing with a legitimate injury. We'll learn more tomorrow.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien expects QB T.J. Yates to start Sunday's game against the Jaguars. QB Tom Savage is in the protocol after suffering a scary-looking concussion in the loss to the 49ers. Yates played well in relief, completing 14 of 26 passes for 175 yards and 2 TDs. But he won't be a fantasy option vs. Jacksonville.

Texans QB Tom Savage was knocked out of Sunday's game against the 49ers with a 2nd-quarter concussion. He took a huge hit and was clearly woozy -- but Savage was allowed to play another series before eventually heading to the locker room for a concussion test. QB T.J. Yates will finish out this game for Houston.

Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) practiced all week and is not listed on the final injury report. He’ll return for Sunday's game against the 49ers after missing the past 3. Despite the plus matchup, he’s just a WR3 flier with Tom Savage at the controls. WR Braxton Miller (concussion) is out.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Thursday that it "looks good" for WR Will Fuller (ribs) to play against the 49ers this weekend. He's missed the past 3 weeks but will step back in as Houston's #2 WR. With Tom Savage under center, though, Fuller is a risky WR3 play.

Texans RB Alfred Blue (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers. With only RB Andre Ellington behind him, RB Lamar Miller is a lock to dominate carries in the plus matchup.

Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. HC Bill O'Brien said earlier in the day that he's "hopeful" to get Fuller back for this weekend's game against the 49ers. He'd be a boom/bust WR3 if he's able to play in that one.

The Texans have placed TE C.J. Fiedorowicz and WR Bruce Ellington on IR. Fiedorowicz sustained his 4th concussion in the past 12 months in Sunday's loss to the Titans. His football career might be in jeopardy.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien said Tuesday that it "doesn't look great" for WR Bruce Ellington (hamstring) to play against the 49ers this weekend. We'll see if WRs Will Fuller (ribs) and Braxton Miller (concussion) are available. Especially if Fuller remains out, TE Stephen Anderson will be an intriguing spot-start option.

Texans RB Alfred Blue suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Titans. His last carry came about midway through the 3rd quarter. Missing further time would leave the Houston backfield to Lamar Miller and Andre Ellington, who logged 2 carries and 6 targets in his Houston debut. Ellington finished the game playing wideout after WR Braxton Miller and WR Bruce Ellington also left with injuries.

Texans WR Braxton Miller suffered a concussion during Sunday's game in Tennessee. Houston lost WR Bruce Ellington to a hamstring injury earlier, leaving them razor thin at WR.

Texans TE C.J. Fiedorowicz exited in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Titans with a concussion. It's his 4th concussion in the past year. The last one sidelined him for 8 weeks earlier this season. Fiedorowicz is likely looking at another extended absence.

Texans WR Bruce Ellington injured his hamstring in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Titans and is questionable to return. His absence leaves Braxton Miller as Houston's #2 WR.

Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) is out for Sunday's game against the Titans. He didn't practice all week and has no timetable for return. Bruce Ellington gets another game as Houston's #2 WR and is a viable WR4 in fantasy lineups vs. Tennessee's 26th-ranked WR defense.

Texans WR Will Fuller (ribs) is out for Monday night's game against the Ravens. He wasn't able to practice all week and isn't a lock to return for Week 13. Bruce Ellington will again serve as Houston's #2 WR after posting a 6-63 line last week. The matchup is much tougher this time around, though, against Baltimore's 2nd-ranked WR defense.

The Texans claimed RB Andre Ellington off waivers. While he's a capable pass-catching back, landing with a team quarterbacked by Tom Savage makes Ellington a poor bet for fantasy value the rest of the way. We wouldn't bother rostering him outside of deep PPR leagues. RB Lamar Miller's value takes just a slight hit with this move. RB D'Onta Foreman, of course, is out for the year.
