Texans' John Simon: Inactive Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Simon (chest) is listed as inactive Saturday in New England.

Including this divisional-round tilt, Simon has made just one appearance in the past eight games due to a lingering chest injury. Expect the Texans to employ Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus as their outside pass rushers.

Texans' John Simon: Uncertain to play in New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simon (chest) is questionable to play in Saturday's game against the Patriots.

Simon has dealt with a nagging chest injury since late November, forcing him to miss six of the last seven games. If he is ultimately ruled out, Akeem Dent will likely replace him in the starting lineup.

Texans' John Simon: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Simon (chest) was limited in practice Wednesday.

Simon missed six of the last seven contests due to a chest aliment, but his limited participation in practice Wednesday is a promising sign that he may be able to make his return for Saturday's divisional tilt with the Patriots. Look for more updates to come throughout the practice week. Should he be ruled out again, expect Akeem Dent to start at outside linebacker.

Texans' John Simon: Day-to-day with chest injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Simon (chest) is a game-time decision for Saturday's tilt against the Raiders, Sarah Barshop of ESPN reports.

Simon missed five of the Texans last six games due to his chest injury, with the lone game he played being Week 16. It's possible he could've given it a go in the regular season finale, but the Texans rested him when they had nothing on the line. Akeem Dent will figure to see extra time once again if Simon is sidelined Saturday.
