Texans' Tyler Ervin: Barely plays on offense as rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin (concussion), a 2016 fourth-round draft pick, finished his rookie season with one carry for three yards and three catches for 18 yards (five targets) in 12 games. He returned 27 punts for 261 yards and 14 kickoffs for 263 yards, also losing a pair of fumbles on special teams.

Passing-down work represented Ervin's realistic path to early playing time on offense, but the Texans ultimately preferred both Lamar Miller and Jonathan Grimes to the rookie in those situations. Ervin thus got most of his reps on special teams, where a pair of lost fumbles outweighed his middling work picking up yards as a returner. It was a disappointing rookie season overall, but with a year under his belt and Grimes currently unsigned, Ervin could get more of a shot to contribute on passing downs in 2017. Miller still figures to be heavily involved through the air, but backup running back Alfred Blue is rarely used in obvious passing situations. Given his struggles with ball security as a rookie, it remains to be seen if Ervin will reprise his role as the primary return man for punts and/or kickoffs, but the team figures to at least give him some competition for the jobs. Ervin should have plenty of time to recover from the concussion he suffered during the playoffs before the start of Texans OTAs in mid-to-late April.

Texans' Tyler Ervin: Being evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin left Saturday's game against the Patriots to be evaluated for a possible concussion.

Ervin was injured while hitting the Patriots' Dion Lewis on a kickoff return in the second quarter -- a play that did result in a fumble and eventually led to a Texans touchdown. Ervin, the Texans' primary return man, was replaced in that role by Will Fuller.

Texans' Tyler Ervin: Active for Week 15 versus Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin (chest) is active for Sunday's Week 15 tilt versus the Jaguars.

Ervin will thus make a return after missing the last three games due to injury, but Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue are expected to handle the backfield workload. Ervin, meanwhile, figures to be exclusively deployed on special teams.

Texans' Tyler Ervin: Questionable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ervin (chest) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Ervin missed the Texans' past three games, but he was able to practice in limited fashion throughout the week. If he's able to play, his main role will come on special teams.
