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.

Texans LB Kamu Grugier-Hill left Sunday's game on a cart after suffering a right knee injury in the loss to the Seahawks. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that early tests reveal a sprain, though, rather than a more severe injury as initially feared. That would likely mean further missed time for Grugier-Hill but isn't believed to be season-ending. We'll see about his official return timeline. LB Neville Hewitt saw elevated playing time in Grugier-Hill's absence and figures to start in his place going forward. The team, of course, waived LB Zach Cunningham, who is now with the Titans.

Texans DE Jonathan Greenard (foot) is active for today's game against the Seahawks. He's been playing through the foot issue for weeks and will be tough to sit in an upside sack matchup with Seattle.

11:34am EST 12/12/21

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (back) is active for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. He was added to the injury report and limited in practice on Friday, but it’s unclear if the back will be an issue today. Cooks carries more risk than usual in Week 14 fantasy lineups.

Texans DE Jonathan Greenard is questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks with a foot injury that has lingered for weeks. Greenard saw his playing time dip last week to its lowest snap share since Week 5. Then his practice participation declined. Greenard went from 3 limited workouts last week to sandwiching a missed Thursday practice between 2 limited appearances this week. Even if he's active vs. Seattle, it's clear he's dealing with a limiting injury. We'll update his status Sunday morning.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (back) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Seahawks. He was added to the injury report and limited in practice on Friday. We'll look for further updates on his status. His game kicks off at 1 pm ET on Sunday, so we'll know whether he's active by 11:30 am ET.

Texans HC David Culley named QB Davis Mills his starter for the rest of the season. "He gives us the best chance to win," Culley said, suggesting that QB Tyrod Taylor's wrist injury didn't factor into this decision. Taylor has struggled lately -- but Mills managed just 6.6 yards per attempt with 6 TDs vs. 7 INTs in 6 starts earlier this season. WR Brandin Cooks at least averaged 8.2 targets, 6.2 catches and 62.5 yards in those Mills starts. Cooks remains the only Texan worth using in fantasy lineups.

Texans DE Jonathan Greenard (foot) is active for today's game against the Colts. He played through a questionable tag last week and should be in most IDP lineups. Houston made LB Zach Cunningham a healthy scratch, with Christian Kirksey back off IR. That clearly points to Kirksey regaining a full-time spot next to Kamu Grugier-Hill.

11:35am EST 12/5/21

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (illness) is active for today’s game vs. the Colts. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we’re expecting him to play his usual every-down role today.

Texans insider Aaron Wilson confirms that WR Brandin Cooks (illness) is expected to play vs. the Colts on Sunday. Cooks only got in a limited practice on Friday, but unless we hear otherwise, we're expecting him to be ready for his usual role tomorrow.

Texans DE Jonathan Greenard (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. He played through a questionable tag last week and put in limited practices throughout this week, so we'd bet on Greenard playing. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (illness) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Colts. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but should be fine come Sunday. Just check back that morning to make sure he’s active.

The Texans this week designated LB Christian Kirksey to return from IR, and he has practiced with the team. If his repaired left thumb is ready for Sunday's game against the Colts, the returning starter would destabilize LB Zach Cunningham's role. Cunningham had sunk to a reserve spot behind Kirksey and Kamu Grugier-Hill before Kirksey's injury. We'll watch for whether Kirksey makes it back to the active roster.

Texans DE Jonathan Greenard (foot) is active for today's game against the Jets. he came in questionable after sandwiching 2 limited practices around a missed Thursday workout. Greenard figures to be somewhere short of 100%, thus adding some risk to him as an IDP option.

Texans DE Jonathan Greenard (foot) isn't traveling with the team for Sunday's game at Tennessee and has been downgraded to out.

Texans DE Jonathan Greenard (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans. He put in limited practices all week. We'll see about his status Sunday morning.

The Texans on Saturday placed LB Christian Kirksey on IR, following surgery on his fractured thumb. He'll miss the next 3 games but should be back after that. Neville Hewitt looks like his replacement, though we'll see exactly how the playing time gets split among the Houston LBs against Miami this week. This will be the 1st game Kirksey has missed this year.
