The Texans fired HC David Culley and OC Tim Kelly. These guys were set up to fail with an expansion-level roster and might have actually overachieved by winning 4 games this season. GM Nick Caserio is expected to tap into the Patriots pipeline for his next HC.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks suffered a knee injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Titans and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Texans RB David Johnson has been activated from the COVID list. He figures to play vs. the Titans on Sunday but should only steal a handful of touches from RB Rex Burkhead.

Texans S Justin Reid came away from Sunday's loss to the 49ers with "slight" ankle and knee injuries, according to Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 in Houston. DE Jonathan Greenard also left the game with a shoulder injury. We'll see about the status for each player this week.

Texans RB David Johnson was not activated from the COVID list and will miss today’s game vs. the 49ers. Rex Burkhead should remain Houston’s clear lead back, with Royce Freeman the #2.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks has been activated from the COVID list. He'll return for Sunday's game vs. the 49ers. Cooks posted 8-101 and 7-102-2 lines in his last 2 outings before missing Week 16.

The Texans on Monday placed RB David Johnson on the COVID list. That's probably good news for fantasy, as Johnson was already inactive with a quad injury Sunday against the Chargers. That helped pave the way for Rex Burkhead's blowup. Burkhead should be in line for another feature role next Sunday at San Francisco -- albeit, a much worse rushing matchup.

Texans RB David Johnson (quad) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Chargers. Rex Burkhead should operate as Houston’s clear lead back, with Royce Freeman as the #2.

Texans RB David Johnson (quad) is not expected to play vs. the Chargers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That'll leave Royce Freeman as the #2 RB behind Rex Burkhead.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks was not activated from the COVID list and will miss Sunday's game vs. the Chargers, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Cooks' absence leaves WR Nico Collins as the best bet for targets in Houston -- but he's only in play in DFS tournaments.

Texans RB David Johnson (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Chargers. He didn’t practice all week, though, so he seems unlikely to play. Look for Rex Burkhead to serve as Houston’s clear lead back on Sunday, with Royce Freeman as the #2.

Texans RB David Johnson (quad) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. His absence vs. the Chargers this weekend would be a slight boost to RB Rex Burkhead's stock. We'll get another update on Johnson tomorrow.

The Texans on Wednesday placed WR Brandin Cooks and K Ka'imi Fairbairn on the COVID list. HC David Culley has said that LB Eric Wilson -- who also landed on the COVID list Wednesday -- is the team's only unvaccinated player. So Cooks and Fairbairn have a chance to return for Sunday's game against the Chargers. You should plan as though you won't have either guy available, though.

The Texans have placed DE Jonathan Greenard on the COVID list following a positive test. We'll see whether he has a shot to return for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Texans RB Rex Burkhead (hip, quad) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. It’s a slight surprise after HC David Culley said early in the week that Burkhead would miss this one. He figures to continue splitting backfield duties with RB David Johnson. RB Royce Freeman might also stay involved.

11:38am EST 12/19/21

Texans TE Brevin Jordan (hand) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. He put in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday but did not practice on Friday. Jordan has some DFS appeal but shouldn’t be in your redraft plans.

Texans TE Brevin Jordan (hand) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Jaguars. He put in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday but did not practice on Friday. We’ll find out if he’s active around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. Jordan has some DFS appeal but shouldn’t be in your redraft plans.

Texans RB Rex Burkhead (hip, quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. HC David Culley said early this week that Burkhead wouldn't play, but he evidently has a shot after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We'll get Houston's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday, but hopefully you can avoid this backfield in fantasy lineups.

The Texans look likely to go without their top 2 LBs for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. Christian Kirksey and Kamu Grugier-Hill have each tested positive for COVID. We’ll see whether either LB has a shot to return. Kevin Pierre-Louis and Neville Hewitt figure to lead the LB playing time if they dont

Texans RB Rex Burkhed (hip) won't play vs. the Jaguars on Sunday, HC David Culley said. It'll be David Johnson and Royce Freeman in the backfield for that one. Johnson is the better fantasy bet, but it's a situation to avoid if you can.
