  • Jackson recorded three solo tackles, one pass breakup and one interception Sunday against the Jaguars. Jackson played 58 of 70 defensive snaps Sunday. The veteran corner hasn't been logging many tackles lately, with just nine in his last three games, and with a matchup against the run-happy Jags, the trend likely will continue. Jags QB Blake Bortles has thrown only one pick in his last three games, which hurts Jackson's chances of creating value in other ways.

  • Texans' Kareem Jackson: Full participant Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jackson (hamstring) was a full participant at Thursday's practice after sitting out Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. The Texans need Jackson and all hands on board defensively after losing J.J. Watt (knee) and Whitney Mercilus (pectoral) to season-ending injuries. The loss of two important disruptive forces up front will put a strain on Houston's cornerbacks, who will be asked to hold coverage longer.

  • Texans' Kareem Jackson: Gearing up for start
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jackson will start at cornerback Sunday against the Titans. With Kevin Johnson and Marcus Burley (both knee) both inactive for Sunday's game, the Texans will look to Jackson to step up. The eighth-year cornerback has played substantial defensive snaps this season, recording 20 tackles (14 solo) and a sack. Since he was a fantasy threat before being named starter, we expect serious IDP output from Jackson now that he's starting.

  • Texans' Kareem Jackson: Leading tackler Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Jackson had seven tackles, one sack and a forced fumble in Thursday's 13-9 win over Cincinnati. Jackson isn't listed as a starter, but he's typically on the field plenty as the Texans' third corner. That was especially the case Thursday, when both Johnathan Joseph (shoulder) and Kevin Johnson (knee) left the game. No cornerback on the team supports the run better than Jackson, whose forced fumble led to a 49-yard return by Jadeveon Clowney, setting up Houston's first score of the game.

  • Jackson scored on a 42-yard interception return during the first quarter of Houston's 24-21 win over Jacksonville on Sunday. Jackson read the eyes of Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles and undercut an out route to give Houston a lead before the offense ever stepped onto the field. He missed some time this season due to a hamstring injury, but has been back three weeks now and registered 11 tackles over the last two games.
