Mercilus expected back for season opener

Texans OLB Whitney Mercilus has missed about 2 weeks or workouts with a hamstring injury, as well as the team's 1st 2 exhibition contests. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the team doesn't expect Mercilus to appear in the final 2 games either but does expect him to return for the regular-season opener. Over 6 seasons, Mercilus has only topped 7.5 sacks once -- when he delivered 12 in 2015. If the defense stays healthy, Mercilus will find himself in a good situation for sack upside. We'll keep an eye on the hamstring.

Texans OLB Whitney Mercilus suffered a torn pectoral muscle in Sunday night's loss to the Chiefs. He will miss the rest of the season. Ufomba Kamalu sits behind Mercilus on the depth chart. Losing Mercilus and DE J.J. Watt in the same game deals a big blow to the pass rush and Houston's team-D outlook in fantasy.

Texans OLB Whitney Mercilus (back) and CB Johnathan Joseph (ribs) are inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. Mercilus' absence hurts the Houston pass rush but certainly doesn't take the defense out of fantasy consideration in a high-ceiling matchup.

Texans OLB Whitney Mercilus missed the team's spring workouts with a hamstring injury, but he told the Houston Chronicle this week that he expects to be ready for the start of training camp. Mercilus finished last season by earning AFC defensive player of the month honors for December and racked up a career-high 12 sacks. That beat his previous high by 5. Mercilus retains double-digit sack potential in 1 of the league's better defenses, especially with J.J. Watt commanding attention and former #1 pick Jadeveon Clowney seemingly working toward greater impact. Keep Mercilus in mind as a potential spot-start value late in your IDP draft.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after suffering a torn meniscus in Sunday's opener against Washington.  Clowney's absence should push Whitney Mercilus into the starting lineup opposite Brooks Reed.  Mercilus rated poorly in Pro Football Focus' grading last season but brings significant sack upside.  He's an interesting option in sack-heavy IDP formats.
