Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fairbairn (quad) has been placed on injured reserve, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Fairbairn was attempting to usurp the placekicking job from Nick Novak, but didn't play in preseason Week 2 or 3 due to the injury. They like his potential and want to evaluate him as a future kicking option.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Did not play preseason Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fairbairn did not play in Houston's win over New Orleans in preseason Week 2 on Saturday due to a quad injury.

Houston head coach Bill O'Brien said the injury isn't considered serious, but the kicker remains day-to-day. With Fairbairn out, Nick Novak handled the kicking duties Saturday, but he suffered a concussion on Houston's final kickoff.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Field goal, extra point in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fairbairn booted a 45-yard field goal and converted his lone extra-point attempt in Houston's preseason opener against the 49ers.

Fairbairn is an undrafted free agent challenging the incumbent Nick Novak for Houston's placekicking job. Two of his three kickoffs did not reach the end zone, but touchbacks may not necessarily be a factor in who wins the job. The 49ers' average field position on his kickoffs was the 22-yard line, which is better than the new touchback rule, where field position begins at the 25. This competition will play itself out over the course of the four-game preseason.

Texans' Ka'Imi Fairbairn: Signs with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fairbairn, an undrafted free agent out of UCLA, reached a deal with the Texans, per a source, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Fairbairn made all 47 of his extra points and 20 of his 24 field-goal attempts during his senior year. Nick Novak ended the 2015 season as Houston's kicker, but he didn't perform so well that the Texans shouldn't entertain other options.
