Griffin caught both of his targets for six yards in Sunday's win over the Jets. Griffin was activated off short-term IR last week and was targeted six times in a win over the Bengals, which had been an encouraging sign for his future involvement in the offense. Alas, he was a bit player in Week 11, like the rest of the team's tight ends.
Griffin caught three of six targets for 36 yards in Monday night's 10-6 win over the Bengals. He had two third-down catches to extend Houston's only touchdown drive of the game. Griffin had been on short-term IR since Week 2 and it was not known how involved he'd be in the game plan -- particularly given the Texans' aversion to targeting their tight ends this season. In two games played, Griffin is averaging five targets per game, well ahead of the pace for C.J. Fiedorowicz and Garrett Graham. Griffin should be considered Houston's top tight end target entering Week 11 against the Jets.
The Texans have activated Griffin (knee) from IR/designated to return in advance of Monday night's game against the Bengals, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. The team released center Eric Kush in a corresponding move, with the addition of Griffin giving the Texans another tight end option to go along with C.J. Fiedorowicz and Garrett Graham.
Griffin (knee) was not activated for Week 10 and will not play Monday night against the Bengals, the Houston Chronicle reports. Griffin practiced all week and was making progress, but he'll remain on short-term injured reserve for one more week due with a sprained medial collateral ligament suffered in the season-opener.
Griffin is expected to play Monday against the Bengals, the Houston Chronicle reports. Griffin was activated from the Texans' short-term IR this week after spraining his knee in Week 1. Despite just returning to practice, it seems Griffin will already be available for Monday night's game against the Bengals, giving the Texans another tight end option to go with C.J. Fiedorowicz and Garrett Graham.
