Bobby Slowik is getting a "significant raise" to remain the Texans' OC, according to insider Albert Breer. Slowik drew significant HC interest after leading Houston to top-13 finishes in both total yards and points this past year. His return is good news for QB C.J. Stroud and the Texans offense, although we'd like to see Slowik lean further toward the pass in 2024. Last year's Texans ranked 16th in neutral pass rate and 19th in Pass Rate Over Expected.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud returned from a two-game concussion with a decent outing in Sunday's win over the Titans. He threw for 213 yards on 24-of-32 passing, with 1 TD, 0 INTs, and 1 sack taken. Stroud's 75% completion rate marked a season high, but his 6.7 yards per pass attempt marked one of his lowest averages all season. The numbers indicate Stroud didn't show any rust in the aftermath of the concussion. The shorter range of his passing for a second straight game, though -- 4.0 YPA vs. the Jets in the game he left early -- is worth noting. That was Houston's first full game without WR Tank Dell, who leads the team in average target depth for the season -- by more than 2 yards over No. 2 Noah Brown (according to Pro Football Reference). The recent trend for Stroud isn't enough to make him worrisome as a fantasy option if your league plays into Week 18. Stroud gets a fine matchup with Indy. But he probably doesn't present as much upside as he did before Dell went down.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (concussion) practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday, and is off the final injury report. He’ll be back under center for this weekend’s game vs. the Titans – a big boost for Houston’s offense. See where all the Texans sit in the Week 17 Rankings.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud has cleared concussion protocol and will play vs. the Titans on Sunday, barring a setback between now and then, insider Aaron Wilson reports. With Stroud out the past two weeks, Houston has totaled just 41 points and 370 passing yards. The rookie's return is a big boost for the entire offense, particularly WR Nico Collins, WR Noah Brown, and TE Dalton Schultz. See where all the Texans sit in the Week 17 Rankings.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (concussion) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. HC Demeco Ryans said that Stroud is in stage four of the five-stage protocol. “It was encouraging to see him," Ryans said. "I think it just lifts everybody’s spirits to see him back doing well and still progressing in the right direction. So, happy about that.” Stroud is seemingly trending toward being cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Titans, but we'll keep you updated on his progress

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that there's "optimism" that Texans QB C.J. Stroud (concussion) will be back for Week 17. Stroud remained sidelined in practice all last week but "has begun to make some progress" through the protocol, according to Schefter. We'll track the rookie's status this coming week. QB Case Keenum starts vs. the Browns today.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (concussion) did not practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns. He’s seemingly made very little progress through the protocol and isn’t a lock to make it back for Week 17. QB Case Keenum starts again this weekend.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (concussion) is "likely" to miss Sunday's game against the Browns, a source tells ESPN. The team, of course, will continue to monitor Stroud's progress through the concussion protocol before making a final decision on his Week 16 status. But fantasy owners should now assume that it'll be QB Case Keenum at the helm for Houston again this weekend. Keenum did just enough to eke out a win over the Titans last week, completing 64% of his passes at 6.4 yards per attempt with one TD and one INT. This news obviously deals a blow to all of Houston's pass-catchers.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (concussion) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game vs. the Titans. No surprise after he missed practice all week. Stroud has a good chance to be cleared for Week 16. QB Case Keenum is expected to draw the start against Tennessee tomorrow.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Titans. He didn’t practice all week. The Texans are holding out hope that Stroud is cleared by Sunday – but it’s extremely unlikely. QB Davis Mills will get the start against Tennessee. He’s a capable backup but a significant downgrade from Stroud.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (concussion) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's a long shot to be cleared in time for this weekend's game vs. the Titans. It'll likely be QB Davis Mills at the controls for Houston.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He still has multiple stages of the concussion protocol to pass through and is unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Titans. Stroud's absence would leave QB Davis Mills at the controls for Houston. Mills is a capable backup but would be in a tough spot without WR Tank Dell and likely WR Nico Collins.

Texans HC Demeco Ryans confirmed after Sunday's loss to the Jets that QB C.J. Stroud is in the concussion protocol. It's Stroud's first documented concussion. We'll track his progress through the protocol this coming week, but Stroud is more likely than not to miss Sunday's game vs. the Titans. His absence would leave QB Davis Mills under center for Houston -- a huge downgrade for the offense.

Texans QB C.J. Stroud was injured in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Jets. His head slammed to the ground, so he'll at least be checked for a concussion. Stay tuned for an update.

Update: Stroud is being checked for a concussion and is officially questionable to return. He won't return to this 27-6 game, but if he's diagnosed with a concussion, he'll be unlikely to play next week.
