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.

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.

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.

The Texans signed RB Rex Burkhead. The soon-to-be 31-year-old missed the final 6 games of last season after knee surgery and has a lengthy injury history. He remained reasonably effective last year, averaging 4.1 yards per carry and 7.7 yards per catch. But his days as a fantasy asset are likely over. That's especially true on the Texans, who look like a bad team with a crowded backfield. Houston has added Burkhead, Phillip Lindsay and Mark Ingram to David Johnson this offseason.
