Rank Among Leaders
|D.J. Swearing does little to lead the way |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/6/13) Texans defensive back D.J. Swearinger led the team in tackles in Week 14 against the Jaguars, though he finished the game with just six -- five solo -- in the 27-20 loss.
|Texans defense largely healthy Thursday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(12/5/13) The Texans' injury report for Week 14 featured a lengthy list of injured defenders, but all but one player from that side of the ball was able to take the field Thursday against the Jaguars. While defensive back Jawanza Starling (foot) was inactive prior to kickoff, 11 other injured players were able to play through their issues.
Defensive lineman Antonio Smith (not injury related), linebackers Joe Mays (knee), Mike Mohamed (hamstring), Darryl Sharpton (knee), Whitney Mercilus (hip) and Jeff Tarpinian (groin), and defensive backs Brice McCain (hamstring), Johnathan Joseph (groin), Kareem Jackson (ribs), D.J. Swearinger (foot) and Shiloh Keo (neck) are all in uniform Thursday.
|Texans counting on D.J. Swearinger |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/17/13) Texans general manager Rick Smith is hopeful safety Ed Reed (hip) will be ready for Week 1. But whether or not Reed is back for the season opener, Smith expects rookie D.J. Swearinger to play plenty, reports NFL.com.
"D.J. operates like he's a veteran. He has awareness. He knows how to disguise things early in his development learning the scheme. ... I do expect him to play a lot of snaps," Smith said.
|Safety Swearinger lands in Houston |
|by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(4/26/13) The Houston Texans have selected South Carolina safety D.J. Swearinger in the second round of the NFL draft. The senior started 12 games last season and finished with 79 tackles, two forced fumbles and seven pass breakups. He also returned an interception and a fumble for touchdowns.
|The Houston Texans have selected South Carolina safety D.J. Swearinger in the second round of the NFL draft. The senior started 12 games last season and finished with 79 tackles, two forced fumbles and seven pass breakups. He also returned an interception and a fumble for touchdowns. Swearinger plays with reckless abandon, so much so that he was penalized a bunch in college for illegal hits and was suspended for a game. He also doesn't have the staying speed to take on fast receivers in single coverage, but safeties don't have to do that often. Swearinger will learn from one of the best in Ed Reed and might not play much for the next year or two. He's a late-round flier in the deepest of seasonal leagues, a late-round pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and a middle-round choice in rookie-only drafts. (Updated 5/15/13) |
