    11/26/15CBA.J. BouyeConcussionQUESTIONABLETexans cornerback A.J. Bouye left Thursday night's game against Indianapolis with a quadriceps injury, the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Bouye, who started the game in Houston's nickel package, will be checked out in the coming days.

    (Updated 10/09/2015)
    11/26/15LBMax BulloughShoulder, hamstringPROBABLEThe Texans placed linebacker Max Bullough on injured reserve and promoted tight end Anthony Denham from the practice squad, reports ESPN.com.
    11/26/15LBJadeveon ClowneyWristPROBABLEClowney (back) recorded two tackles (one solo), including half a sack, a quarterback hit and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over the Jets.

    Clowney had sat out the Texans' previous game with a muscular issue in his back.

    (Updated 11/23/2015)
    11/26/15DTChristian CovingtonHipPROBABLECovington had two tackles, including his first sack of the season, in Monday night's 10-6 win over the Bengals.

    Covington is starting to get more playing time, taking snaps away from Vince Wilfork who has been a better personality than a tackler for Houston.

    (Updated 11/17/2015)
    11/26/15LBAkeem DentHamstringPROBABLEThe Texans will re-sign veteran linebacker Akeem Dent to a two-year contract, according to a report from ESPN's Josina Anderson
    11/26/15QBBrian HoyerConcussionPROBABLEHoyer (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday. He's expected to start Week 12 against the Saints.

    Hoyer, who missed the last game and a half, has managed to avoid mistakes this season with just four interceptions and 13 touchdowns in seven games. This has the makings of a good week for Hoyer as New Orleans ranks last in overall defense and passing touchdowns and is 30th in passing defense.

    (Updated 11/25/2015)
    11/26/15CBKareem JacksonAnkleQUESTIONABLEJackson (ankle) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

    Jackson, who has been inactive the last four games with an ankle injury, looks like he'll be returning to the active lineup Week 12 against the Saints.

    (Updated 11/25/2015)
    11/26/15CBCharles JamesFootPROBABLEJames was claimed off waivers by the Texans, the Houston Chronicle reports.

    James will provide some depth on special teams but also on defense as the team announced starting cornerback Kareem Jackson (ankle) unlikely to play Week 7 against Miami.

    (Updated 10/20/2015)
    11/26/15CBJohnathan JosephKnee, wristQUESTIONABLEJoseph (knee) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Joseph injured his knee during Week 11's win over the Jets, but we also learned Wednesday that he has a wrist injury.

    (Updated 11/26/2015)
    11/26/15LBWhitney MercilusBackPROBABLEMercilus filled in for the injured Jadeveon Clowney (back) and had 3.5 sacks, four quarterback hits and four tackles for loss in Sunday's win over the Titans.

    Mercilus has seen his snap count reduced since Clowney has been available, but he's not around, Mercilus has been productive with 5.5 sacks this season.

    (Updated 11/02/2015)
    11/26/15SEddie PleasantNeckPROBABLEEvery player listed as "probable" on the Texans injury report is active Thursday against the Colts. 
    11/26/15RBChris PolkKnee, hamstringPROBABLEPolk (hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday.

    Polk is trending in the right direction, but as long as he's the No. 3 option (behind Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes) in the Texans' rushing attack, his fantasy utility will be limited to deeper formats.

    (Updated 11/25/2015)
    11/26/15WRNate WashingtonHipPROBABLEWashington (hip) caught two of six targets for 13 yards in Sunday's win over the Jets.

    Washington had a two-week run in which caught 13 balls, three touchdowns and gained over 200 yards, but has been limited to four catches for 45 yards the last two weeks. It should be noted that Washington's lean weeks coincided with Cecil Shorts returning to action. As Houston's quarterbacks have a full complement of wideout targets, Washington's role has been reduced.

    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    11/26/15LBAnthony BarrHandPROBABLEBarr (hand) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.

    With a varied line in his second campaign -- 47 tackles (39 solo), 1.5 sacks, one interception, and one forced fumbled in nine contests -- Barr will line up at strong-side linebacker in an attempt to corral Aaron Rodgers and company.

    (Updated 11/22/2015)
    11/26/15SRobert BlantonAnkleQUESTIONABLEVikings safety Robert Blanton is likely to start at strong safety this week against Denver with Andrew Sendejo out with a knee injury, ESPN reports.

    Blanton had lost out on the starting job and had a limited role off the bench as he didn't even play a snap on defense in Week 2. He should get a full workload Sunday with Sendejo out.

    (Updated 10/02/2015)
    11/26/15QBTeddy BridgewaterLeft shoulderPROBABLEBridgewater completed 25 of 37 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-13 loss to the Packers. He was sacked six times, and finished with 43 rushing yards on four carries.

    Bridgewater took a number of big hits, and had to leave the game briefly in the first half. While he showed toughness throughout, he couldn't make enough plays in the end. His fantasy production continues to be limited, with just one 300-yard passing game, and one touchdown or less in nine of 10 contests this season. The second-year QB has added some fantasy value as a runner, with a couple of touchdowns on the ground. Next week, he and the Vikings will travel to Atlanta to play the Falcons, who have generally held opposing QBs in check this year.

    (Updated 11/22/2015)
    11/26/15DTSharrif FloydAnkleQUESTIONABLEFloyd (ankle) is listed as active Sunday in Oakland, Ben Goessling of ESPN.com reports.

    Floyd missed three games following surgery to remove cartilage from his knee, but after building up his practice reps during the week, the defensive tackle will make his first appearance since Week 6.

    (Updated 11/15/2015)
    11/26/15DEEverson GriffenHip, shoulderQUESTIONABLEGriffen (neck) is active Sunday against the Rams.

    After putting in limited practices earlier in the week, Griffen put in a full practice on Friday and will be in the lineup at right defensive end. His presence will help the Vikings defensive line as they try to slow down Todd Gurley and the Rams offense.

    (Updated 11/08/2015)
    11/26/15LBEric KendricksRibsPROBABLEKendricks had seven total tackles and a tackle for a loss while playing 68 snaps in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

    Kendricks missed two games with injured ribs, but was back as the starter at middle linebacker and played a full game.

    (Updated 11/23/2015)
    11/26/15SHarrison SmithKneeQUESTIONABLESmith did not practice Wednesday due to a sore knee but expects to play Sunday against Atlanta, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Smith hurt his knee early in last week's loss to Green Bay but was able to play a full game. It sounds like he just needs some rest for the injury, but check to see if he practices Friday.
