Texans GM Smith: Jadeveon Clowney could be ready for training camp


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Texans general manager Rick Smith reiterated during his Thursday combine press conference that outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney's rehab from microfracture surgery has gone "well," and added that training camp and Week 1 are "within the normal timetable for his recovery process," per the Houston Chronicle.

Smith said that Clowney's first six weeks of rehab were really key, because he wasn't able to apply any pressure on his knee. Now that his rehab is on track, he expects Clowney to make a major impact next season.

Clowney, the No. 1 overall pick in last year's draft, played in just four games, making seven tackles, after dealing with numerous injuries. Coach Bill O'Brien refused to categorize Clowney's rookie campaign as a lost season.


Report: Texans not expected to 'break bank' on Kareem Jackson


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) On Monday, defensive back Kareem Jackson said on Sirius XM radio on Monday he'd prefer to sign with the Texans and not be tagged. However, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Texans don't plan on breaking the bank or using the franchise tag on the unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Jackson, who turned down a deal before the start of the 2014 season, is expected to command the most lucrative contract out of all impending Houston free agents if he hits the market. However, the Texans have not used the tag since 2008, and don't plan on doing so this offseason, per the report.

The five-year starter for the Texans totaled 57 tackles with three interceptions and nine passes defended in 2014.


Texans' J.J. Watt only player to reach two 20-plus sack seasons


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Texans defensive end J.J. Watt took down Blake Bortles in the end zone for a safety in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Jaguars in Week 17. With that sack Watt became the only player in NFL history with two seasons of 20-plus sacks. Watt led the team with six total tackles, including three sacks and four tackles for loss.  

He finishes the season with 20 1/2 sacks, one interception, two defensive touchdowns, three receiving touchdowns, three forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries.


Texans DST keeps on rolling in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) The Texans defense dominated in Week 16, in a 25-13 win over the Ravens.

The Ravens managed just 211 yards of total offense in the game, despite running 68 plays. The Texans pass rush got home for just two sacks in the game, but they forced Joe Flacco into three interceptions anyways, as they finished the game with 18 Fantasy points, their second in a row with that total.

The Texans DST unit enters the final week of the season riding a eight-game streak with at least 10 Fantasy points, and they should have no trouble keeping it going with a matchup on the way against the Jaguars. 


Texans DST keeps on rolling through tough matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) The Texans defense held up their end of the bargain in slowing down the Colts in Week 15, but it wasn't enough in a 17-10 loss.

The Texans held the high-powered Colts offense to just 278 yards, a bit improvement over the 456-yard effort the Colts managed in Week 6. The Texans came up with one huge play early, as Kendrick Lewis scored on a 27-yard interception return. They finished the game with two turnovers and two sacks. 

The Texans' DST unit has been a model of consistency, scoring in double figures in Fantasy points in all but two games this season. They will look to close the season out strong, with a tough matchup against the Ravens on the way in Week 16. 


Texans' strong run continues with win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The Texans DST unit came up with another strong performance in Week 14, a 27-13 win over the Jaguars.

The Texans gave up 13 first-half points to the Jaguars, but shut them out completely in the second half. The Jaguars ended up with just 262 yards of total offense in the game, while quarterback Blake Bortles was sacked four times and surrendered one interception.

The Texans have now picked up double digits in Fantasy points in each of their last six games, a streak they will likely struggle to extend in Week 15 against the Colts. They had 13 Fantasy points against the Colts in Week 6, but opposing DST units are averaging just 6.6 against them overall. 


Texans CB Kareem Jackson targeting Week 14 return


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien told reporters cornerback Kareem Jackson could be back in the starting lineup Sunday against Jacksonville, the Houston Chronicle reports. Jackson missed the previous three games because of a knee injury.

"I do believe it's day to day but I feel better about his chances of playing this week than I did at this time last week," O'Brien said.


Interceptions make Texans' day


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2014) The Texans equaled a season high with three interceptions against Titans quarterbacks Zach Mettenberger and Jake Locker en route to a 45-21 victory Week 13 against Tennessee. They also had three sacks and one fumble recovery, limiting the Titans to 320 yards.

It was a predictable effort for a Texans DST that has been one of the most reliable in Fantasy this season, scoring double-digit Fantasy points in 11 of 13 games. The Texans have benefited from some favorable matchups recently, but with the most favorable one of all Week 14 at Jacksonville, you'll want to keep their DST active.


Texans LB Jadeveon Clowney 'somewhat' affected by knee injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney told the Houston Chronicle following a Week 12 loss to Cincinnati that he's still being affected by a knee injury. Clowney finished with three tackles, including one for a loss on Sunday.

"Somewhat," Clowney said. "Some things are holding me back still but I'm just out here trying to do what I can do and have fun. You never know if you’re going to have an injury or not coming into the league. So when that happened to me, it was a setback. I'm just trying to do everything I need to do to get back to where I need to be to help the team out."


Texans DST rolls through Browns in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) The Texans DST unit kept rolling against the Browns in Week 11, holding them to a single score in a 23-7 win.

The Browns racked up 375 yards of total offense in the game, but the Texans defense did a good job holding them out of the end zone. The Browns turned the ball over twice in the game, and the Texans' DST unit came up with a pair of sacks as well, bringing their season total to 21.

The Texans have double figures in Fantasy scoring in each of the last three games and eight of 10 overall, as they head into Week 12 against the Bengals.  


Texans' Bill O'Brien: Clowney, Cushing will 'definitely' play Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien confirmed Friday that linebackers Jadeveon Clowney and Brian Cushing will "definitely" play Sunday against the Browns, according to the Houston Chronicle. Clowney has appeared in only two games this season due to knee issues. Cushing has sat out the past two games with a knee injury.

Big plays make up for overall struggles for Texans DST


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) The Texans defense was unable to take advantage of the Eagles' quarterback situation  in Week 9, in a 31-21 loss.

The Eagles torched the Texans for 483 yards of total offense, and the score could have been a lot worse if the Eagles had taken better care of the ball. The Texans DST unit salvaged the day with four turnovers, including a 51-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter.

The Texans' DST unit still came away from the game with 18 Fantasy points thanks to a slew of big plays, despite the overall subpar showing. They now have scored double figures in seven of nine games this season heading into their Week 10 bye. 


Texans rookie LB Clowney in danger of missing Week 9


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien didn't sound optimistic about linebacker Jadeveon Clowney's status for Week 9 against the Eagles, according to the team's official website. O'Brien told reporters that the team will continue to evaluate the rookie and reiterated that at the moment his status "doesn't look very good" for Sunday.

Clowney played Week 8 for the first time since injuring a knee Week 1. He had one tackle in the Texans' 30-16 win at Tennessee.


Texans DST keeps rolling


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Texans defense faltered late in Week 8, but still mostly held up well in a 30-16 win over the Titans Sunday.

The Texans held the Titans to 326 yards of total offense, and most of that came after halftime. They forced two turnovers and sacked rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger twice in the win, en route to 10 Fantasy points.

The Texans DST unit has scored at least 10 Fantasy points in six of eight games so far this season, and is averaging 11.4 per game overall. They may not be much use for Fantasy purposes over the next few games, however, with the Eagles on the way in Week 9, followed by their bye week. 


Texans LB Clowney returns to field against Redskins


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Texans rookie linebacker Jadeveon Clowney returned to action Week 8 against the Titans after missing six straight games with a knee injury suffered in the season opener against the Redskins. However, Clowney could be limited to mostly passing situations in his first game back, according to NFL.com.

Brian Cushing among Texans inactives Week 8


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, quarterback Tom Savage, wide receiver DeVier Posey, cornerback Darryl Morris, tackle Jeff Adams, linebacker Jeff Tarpinian and safety Josh Aubrey were among the team's inactives Week 8 at Tennessee.

Report: Texans' Clowney set to return, but on pitch count


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Texans rookie linebacker Jadeveon Clowney will return to action Week 8 at Tennessee, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Clowney will likely be on a pitch count and is expected to enter the game in passing situations. He could play more depending on how his surgically repaired knee feels during the game.

Texans' Bill O'Brien: Jadeveon Clowney has a good shot to play


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien told reporters rookie linebacker Jadeveon Clowney "has a good shot to play" Sunday against the Titans, according to the team's official website. O'Brien also indicated that Clowney will be on a pitch count if he plays. He was officially ruled questionable on the team's final injury report, which was released Friday.

O'Brien: Clowney's chances of playing Week 8 'getting better and better'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Texans coach Bill O'Brien said linebacker Jadeveon Clowney moved well in practice Wednesday and his chances of returning to the lineup Week 8 at Tennessee are "getting better and better every day." He has missed the last six games after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in early September.

Clowney has been sidelined since suffering a knee injury in the season opener. Clowney has had some durability issues since being the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. He was sidelined at times this summer due to hernia surgery and a concussion.


Texans allow 30 points again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/21/2014) After allowing 33 points Week 6 against Indianapolis, the Texans allowed 30 Week 7 at Pittsburgh. But while their struggles were to be expected against a Colts offense that ranks No. 1 in the NFL, at least in terms of yardage, the same can't be said for their matchup against the Steelers, who scored 10 points against the Browns in Week 6 and 17 against the Jaguars in Week 5.

Because turnovers kept putting the Steelers in good field position, the Texans allowed 328 yards, only 12 away from their season low. They recorded three sacks, equaling a season high met twice previously, but their only takeaway was a fumble recovery in the first quarter.

The Texans haven't had a favorable schedule of late, but their DST has mostly held its own. Again, the 30 points given up in this one was as much the fault of the offense. With an appealing matchup Week 8 at Tennessee, the Texans DST is an advisable play in Fantasy.


Texans' Brandon Brooks sheds 12 pounds due to stomach illness


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Texans right guard Brandon Brooks, who didn't play Week 6 against the Colts, spent nearly two days in the hospital because of a stomach illness. Brooks, who was discharged from the hospital Friday morning, was back at the team facility Monday, per the team's official website.

He told reporters that he lost 12 pounds while in the emergency room, but is "good to go" moving forward.


Texans' J.J. Watt continues to terrorize Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Texans defensive end J.J. Watt continued to terrorize offenses Week 6. 

Watt found a way to make a huge impact during the game. He had seven tackles, including three that went for a loss. He also defensed three passes, and was credited with four quarterback hits. His biggest play came on a fumble recovery. Watt shot through the Texans offensive line to recover the fumble, then picked up it and rumbled 45 yards for the score. It was Watt's third touchdown of the season. 

Watt will take on the Steelers Week 7. 


Texans defense forces three turnovers in overtime loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Texans defense adopted a bend-don't-break strategy in Week 5 against the Cowboys and it nearly worked out, however they fell 20-17 in overtime.

Though they were tagged for 456 yards of total offense, the Texans allowed just two touchdowns in the game. They forced three turnovers -- two on fumbles -- and added one sack in the loss.

The Texans have enjoyed an easy early schedule, and are holding their first five opponents to 17.4 points per game. They face their toughest test yet in Week 6, however, with the Colts on the way. 


Report: Target date for Jadeveon Clowney's return is Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Texans rookie linebacker Jadeveon Clowney will miss a fourth straight game Sunday against the Cowboys due to a torn meniscus. However, a source told NFL.com the target date for Clowney's return will be Week 7 at Pittsburgh.

Darryl Morris spotted wearing a brace on left leg


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Texans cornerback Darryl Morris, who came down with the game-ending interception late in the fourth quarter to clinch a 23-17 win over the Bills in Week 4, was spotted wearing a brace on his left leg on Monday, per the Houston Chronicle. When asked if he'll play against the Cowboys in Week 5, Morris referred all injury questions to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Morris has registered 14 tackles on the year (12 solo), along with four defended passes and one interception.
