Houston Texans news, rumors and injuries

Fantasy Tip: Mallett still isn't worth starting in any format, especially against an above average Cincinnati Bengals pass defense.

Houston Texans CB Kareem Jackson (knee) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20. LBs Jadeveon Clowney (knee), Brian Cushing (knee) and Akeem Dent (neck) and CB Johnathan Joseph (knee) were limited. OT Tyson Clabo (foot), RB Jonathan Grimes (ankle), LB Whitney Mercilus (knee), LB Mike Mohamed (hip), CB Darryl Morris (ankle), LB Jeff Tarpinian (knee) and LB Justin Tuggle (shoulder) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: A downgrade this late in the week certainly isn't promising. If Foster is unable to play, Alfred Blue will once again start at running back. The two would split carries if Foster does play, as reported earlier. Foster's FantasyScore price of $7,300 is starting to seem like it won't be worth the investment this week.

Fantasy Tip: Foster ($7,300; 14.6% of your cap) presents a very risky play on FantasyScore this week that you might want to avoid. Blue ($5,800; 11.6%) isn't a very attractive play at that price either if Foster plays.

Fantasy Tip: Foster's status for Week 12 is still unknown, and we may not get any updates until later in the week. Check back to see if he is able to do more in practice tomorrow. Even if he is active, it is not a great matchup for Foster against Cincinnatti. Look elsewhere in FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett should be good to go for the team's Week 12 game, but this is not a good matchup for him against the Bengals. Look elsewhere this week in FantasyScore.

Houston Texans CB Kareem Jackson (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. LB Jadeveon Clowney (knee), LB Brian Cushing (knee), LB Akeem Dent (neck) and CB Johnathan Joseph (knee) all were limited in practice. OT Tyson Clabo (foot), RB Jonathan Grimes (ankle), LB Whitney Mercilus (knee), LB Mike Mohamed (hip), CB Darryl Morris (ankle), LB Jeff Tarpinian (knee) and LB Justin Tuggle (shoulder) all fully practiced.

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue carried a franchise-record 36 times for 156 yards in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns in place of the injured RB Arian Foster (groin). His 156 yards tied a rookie franchise record previously set by RB Steve Slaton back in 2008.
Fantasy Tip: Blue will be a popular pick in FantasyScore again in Week 12 if Foster is sidelined again. More will be known on Foster's status Friday. If he is ruled out again, remember Blue's name, although he won't be nearly as cheap in FantasyScore next time around.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett could be a useful in FantasyScore leagues going forward if he faces a favorable matchup and the price is right.

Fantasy Tip: Alfred Blue will be the starting running back in Week 11 and likely will receive most of the work. He has a price of $4,000 on FantasyScore and could be a good option at running back or flex option. Owners will need to watch next week if Foster is able to participate in practice in preparation for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Alfred Blue likely will start at running back and receive most of the work at the position. Blue only costs $4,000 on FantasyScore and could be a cheap option to use at running back or the flex position.

Houston Texans CB Kareem Jackson (knee) has been ruled out for Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns. LBs Jadeveon Clowney (knee), Brian Cushing (knee), Brooks Reed (groin), John Simon (ankle), Jeff Tarpinian (knee) and Justin Tuggle (shoulder) and CBs Johnathan Joseph (concussion, knee) and Darryl Morris (ankle) are probable. Jackson didn't practice Friday, Nov. 14. Clowney and Cushing were limited, while the others practiced in full.

Houston Texans RB Arian Foster (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns, but he's unlikely to play Sunday, Nov. 16. "He did some things (Friday), but I think at the end of the day, he and I will talk," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "We'll do what's best for Arian Foster No. 1, and we'll do what's best for our team No. 2." Foster was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 14.
Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Houston's game is an early start Sunday morning, so you'll know before having to set your lineups for the day. However, it makes Foster ($7,500) an unwise selection for your FantasyScore lineups now. Alfred Blue ($4,000) has just become a sneaky good play.
