Washington caught one of six targets for three yards in Saturday's playoff loss to the Chiefs. Washington, like every ball catcher, was hampered by the poor play of quarterback Brian Hoyer in the 30-0 loss to Kansas City. He finished the regular season second in receptions (47), targets (94) and yards (658), though he was rarely a difference maker. He'll be an unrestricted free agent in March and could re-sign with Houston, but with several holes to fill, the Texans won't be focused on the wideout position.
Washington (hip) is listed as active Saturday against the Chiefs. After injuring his hip in the season finale, Washington logged just two limited practices this week, but the ailment won't stop him from taking part in the do-or-die matchup. He didn't exactly end the season in the high note, failing to surpass 50 yards in each of the last eight games, which doesn't bode well against Kansas City's ninth-ranked pass defense.
Washington (hip) is considered probable for Saturday's playoff game versus the Chiefs, the Houston Chronicle reports. Washington tweaked his hip during Sunday's regular season finale against the Jaguars, but he's still expected to suit up for this weekend's postseason tilt, providing a veteran target opposite star wideout DeAndre Hopkins.
Washington (hip) returned to a limited practice Thursday. Washington sat out practice Wednesday, but his return to work Thursday -- albeit in a limited capacity -- bodes well for the wideout's chances of suiting up for Saturday's playoff opener against the Chiefs.
Washington (hip) did not practice Wednesday. The Texans' injury report in advance of Saturday's game against the the Chiefs is rather lengthy, but as one of just two Houston players who was listed as a non-participant at practice Wednesday, Washington's status for the team's playoff opener is worth monitoring.
