Texans' DeAndre Houston-Carson: Intercepts pass in loss
Houston-Carson recorded an interception, a pass defensed and seven tackles (six solo) in the Texans' 36-22 defeat to the Browns on Sunday.
The backup strong safety played on 96 percent of the defensive snaps after starter Jimmie Ward left the game in the first half with a quadriceps injury. Houston-Carson signed with the Texans in October and has played on a majority of the defensive snaps in six of eight games since then, mostly in relief of Ward. The veteran has 28 tackles in the seven games he's played in with Houston.... See More ... See Less

Texans' DeAndre Houston-Carson: Won't play Week 14
Houston-Carson (illness) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Houston-Carson practiced all week, but an illness prevented him from traveling with the Texans to New York, and he'll consequently miss Sunday's contest. The veteran safety played 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps between Week 10 and Week 12 while filling in for Jimmie Ward, but Houston-Carson logged all but three of his snaps on special teams last week against Denver with Ward back in action....

Texans' DeAndre Houston-Carson: Questionable versus Jets
Houston-Carson (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Given that Houston-Carson wasn't on the Texans' injury report this week, he may have fallen ill sometime late Friday or Saturday. He didn't travel with the team to New York, so while Houston hasn't shut the door on him playing Sunday, Houston-Carson is seemingly trending toward missing the contest. If Houston-Carson is unable to play, the newly-signed Adrian Amos would likely serve as the team's No. 3 safety behind starters Jimmie Ward and Jalen Pitre.... See More ... See Less
Texans' DeAndre Houston-Carson: Steps up when needed
Houston-Carson filled in for the injured Jimmie Ward (hamstring) in last week's win over the Bengals and is expected to do so again Sunday against Cardinals, Jon Poorman of the Houston Chronicle reports.
After several appearances on the NFL transaction logs this season, Houston-Carson has settled in with the Texans. He played all 64 defensive snaps and made two big plays in the fourth quarter in the Week 10 surprise win over Cincinnati: the safety intercepted a Joe Burrow pass in the red zone, then he knocked Tyler Boyd out of bounds after a 64-yard gain as the receiver appeared headed to the end zone with just over two minutes left in the game. "For me, that's the play of the game, and it just shows the type of mindset DeAndre has," Houston head coach DeMeco Ryans said. "It's just effort, and he's always going to do his job, and he's always in the right place. We're happy to have him." Houston's defense held the Bengals to a field goal, which set up Matt Ammendola's game-winning field goal.... See More ... See Less

Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Set to hit free agency
Houston-Carson posted eight tackles in the Bears' 29-13 loss to the Vikings in Week 18, and ended the season with 45 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble over 17 games played.
Once the Bears placed Eddie Jackson (foot) on injured reserve after Week 11, Houston-Carson took on a full-time role. As a starter, he averaged five tackles per game and was a solid IDP option. It's possible that his solid work down the stretch helps him gain a significant role on a team as he enters unrestricted free agency.... See More ... See Less

Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Set for depth role
Houston-Carson is one of five safeties the Bears placed on their 53-man roster, according to the team's official site.
With Eddie Jackson and rookie Jaquan Brisker expected to hold down the top-two safety spots, Houston-Carson will likely see snaps in a rotational role. Unless Jackson or Brisker miss time, Houston-Carson can be expected to have inconsistent IDP value.... See More ... See Less
Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Active in minicamp
Houston-Carson was an active participant as a member of Chicago's first-team defense during OTA sessions June 8, Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports.
Houston-Carson was re-signed to a one-year, $1.77 million contract by the Bears in March after the defensive back ended this past season on the team's injured reserve with a forearm injury. The safety played the most defensive snaps (397) of his six-year career last season, totaling 51 tackles, four passes defended and one interception over 13 games.

After playing a backup role early in the season, Houston-Carson saw heavy snaps over a four-week period (Week 7 through Week 11) that helped him post the best season of his six-year career. Unfortunately, he broke his arm in Week 14, and he'll try to recover from surgery fully ready for the 2022 season. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and if he can land a starting role, he showed the ability to post solid tackle totals, which could make him a sleeper IDP option.... See More ...
