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 WRs Robert Woods (hip) and Noah Brown (back) did not practice on Tuesday. Both guys missed the Week 18 win over the Colts and are iffy for Saturday's Wild Card game vs. the Browns. Their absences last week left John Metchie and Xavier Hutchinson as Houston's No. 2 and 3 WRs -- although neither made an impact. WR Nico Collins hogged 35% of the targets and posted a big 9-195-1 line.

Texans WR Robert Woods (hip) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Colts. He joins WR Noah Brown (back) on the inactive list. That leaves WRs Xavier Hutchinson and John Metchie behind No. 1 WR Nico Collins. TE Dalton Schultz could play an expanded role in the passing game tonight.

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 WR Nico Collins (calf) is active for today’s game vs. the Browns. HC Demeco Ryans told insider Kimberley Martin this morning that Collins will have no limitations in this one. Still, QB C.J. Stroud’s absence and Cleveland’s No. 3 WR defense leaves Collins in WR3 territory in the Week 16 Rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Texans WR Nico Collins (calf) is expected to play Sunday against the Browns. That matches what Collins said earlier in the week. He's still not as attractive an option as usual because of C.J. Stroud's absence and a challenging matchup with the Browns. But Collins should at least be available.

Texans WR Nico Collins (calf) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Browns. He said Friday that he expects to return for this one. But between the calf and QB Case Keenum, Collins lands in WR3 territory in the Week 16 Rankings.

Texans WR Nico Collins (calf) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. He has a chance to return for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. But Collins is obviously a less exciting fantasy play with QB Case Keenum expected to be under center again.

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 WR Nico Collins (calf) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Titans. He’s reportedly not dealing with a long-term injury, so we’ll see if he can make it back for Week 16. WR Noah Brown (knee) is active and joins Robert Woods, John Metchie, and Xavier Hutchinson in a WR corps that’ll be catching passes from QB Case Keenum.

Texans WR Nico Collins (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Titans. He didn’t practice all week, and insider Aaron Wilson confirmed Friday that Collins is not expected to play. We’ll see if he can make it back for Week 16.

Texans WR Nico Collins (calf) did not practice on Wednesday. His injury reportedly isn't serious, but Collins is considered unlikely to play vs. the Titans this weekend. His absence would leave Houston with WRs Noah Brown, Robert Woods, John Metchie, and Xavier Hutchinson -- likely catching passes from QB Davis Mills.

Multiple reports indicate that Texans WR Nico Collins isn't expected to be out long with the calf injury that cost him Week 14. Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 in Houston reports Collins is "improving" and that he has yet to be ruled out for this week. But Patrick Storm of Texans Wire calls the WR "highly unlikely" to play. We're leaving Collins out of the Week 15 WR rankings for now but will certainly be watching for a shift. It seems Collins should be on track for a Week 16 return if he can't go this weekend.

Texans WR Nico Collins injured his calf in the first quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Jets and is questionable to return. Houston, of course, lost WR Tank Dell for the season last week. They're now down to WRs Noah Brown, Robert Woods, John Metchie, and Xavier Hutchinson.

Update: Collins has been ruled out.
