Texans TE Ryan Griffin has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars with an illness. We'll look for more details on what's ailing him. Griffin's absence leaves Houston with rookie TEs Jordan Thomas and Jordan Akins. Neither is a fantasy option.

The Jets have signed TE Ryan Griffin. The 29-year-old was released by the Texans in April following an April arrest on vandalism and public intoxication charges. Those charges were dismissed, so Griffin should avoid a suspension. He's probably the current favorite to serve as New York's primary pass-catching TE during Chris Herndon's 4-game suspension. But Griffin isn't worth spending a pick on in fantasy drafts.

Texans TE Ryan Griffin (illness) is set to return for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. Denver ranks 24th in fantasy points allowed to TEs, but Griffin remains a last-gasp fantasy play.

Texans TE Ryan Griffin (illness) is out for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins. We still don't have any details on the issue that's cost him 2 games now. Jordan Akins and Jordan Thomas will again handle TE duties for Houston, but neither is a fantasy option.

The Texans have placed TE Ryan Griffin (concussion) on IR. His roster spot will be taken by TE C.J. Fiedorowicz, who was activated from IR with his own concussion. Fiedorowicz will serve as Houston's lead pass-catching TE the rest of the way but is a low-upside fantasy option with Tom Savage under center.

Texans TE Ryan Griffin sustained a concussion in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Colts and is done for the day. We'll track his progress through the protocol this week, but Griffin isn't much of a fantasy option with Tom Savage under center.
