Joseph Duarte, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans FS Matt Stevens has started 21 games for the Texans the past two seasons, but that run appears ready to come to an end. Stevens has been the target of criticism the past two seasons for spotty coverage, and the Texans are itching to make changes in the secondary after giving up 421 passing yards to the Titans. Stevens appears to be the most logical target. He was released in the offseason for salary-cap reasons and later re-signed for a friendlier cap number. Meanwhile, the Texans struck out in their courtship for nearly every available free-agent free safety on the market and were forced to hand the starting job back to Stevens.

McCree has been used exclusively on special teams the past two games and starting FS Matt Stevens has been the target of criticism the past two seasons for spotty coverage. Texans head coach Dom Capers said a decision on a starter would not be made until later in the week.

Joseph Duarte, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans FS Travares Tillman was expected to compete for starting job in camp before suffering a forearm injury.

Stevens missed on several key tackles in the Sunday, Sept. 7 victory over the Miami Dolphins, although his pass breakup late in the fourth quarter was huge.

The Houston Chronicle reports Houston Texans FS Matt Stevens (knee) had a vigorous workout Tuesday, Aug. 19, but his status remains day-to-day heading into the Saturday, Aug. 23 pre-season game against the San Diego Chargers. "I don't want to rush anything," said Stevens, whose injured right knee forced him to sit out against the Dallas Cowboys on Friday, Aug. 15. "I don't want to sit out a couple of games in the regular season. I'd rather sit out in the pre-season. In the long run, it'd be better to sit back and wait." Stevens plans to take things slow over the next couple of days to see how the knee responds. If he plays Saturday, it will only be for a series or two.

As of Thursday, August 14, the Texans had no knowledge of whether Stevens will need an arthroscopic procedure. Texans head coach Dom Capers said the worst-case scenario would put Stevens out of action for two to three weeks.
