  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Misses lone FGA

    Fairbairn was unsuccessful on his lone field-goal attempt and converted his only extra-point kick in Sunday's 23-7 loss to San Francisco.

    Fairbairn was wide left on a 45-yard attempt early in the fourth quarter, which could have tied the game had he converted. With a short field, San Francisco made it a two-score game just four plays later. Houston's offense staggered through much of Sunday's contest, so the miss was a pivotal swing. Fairbairn has made 14 of 18 field-goal kicks and two of four from 40-49 yards this season.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Returns from COVID list

    Houston activated Fairbairn (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Fairbairn will reclaim kicking duties for Houston after Dominik Eberle filled in Week 16 against the Chargers while Fairbarn recovered from the virus. The Texans have scored 71 points while notching consecutive wins, so Fairbairn could have some sneaky upside Week 17 in San Francisco if quarterback Davis Mills and the Houston passing game is able to keep rolling against the 49ers' suspect secondary.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Remains on COVID list

    Dominik Eberle has been elevated from the Texans' practice squad to fill in for Fairbairn, who is still on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    With Fairbairn on the COVID list, Eberle is in line to handle the Texans' kicking duties Sunday against the Chargers. Fairbairn will thus target a potential return to action in Week 17.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Added to COVID list

    Houston placed Fairbairn on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    According to Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston, linebacker Eric Wilson is the only unvaccinated player on the Texans roster, which means Fairbairn was placed on the list after testing positive for the virus. Fairbairn will thus have an outside chance of clearing the NFL's return-to-play COVID-19 protocol before Sunday's game against the Chargers, but if he can't play this week, Houston will have to sign an out-of-house replacement. The Texans don't have a kicker on their practice squad, as Fairbairn provided little reason for Houston to add competition since he's converted on all but one of his 10 extra-point tries and all but two of his 15 field-goal attempts over the last nine games.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Old kicker returns

    Fairbairn successfully converted three of three field-goal attempts and three of three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 30-16 win over Jacksonville.

    It's been a down season for many on the Texans' roster, including Fairbairn, who missed the first three weeks of the season with a leg injury and struggled with accuracy while performing for an offensively challenged team. Week 15 featured a return to form for Fairbairn, the kicker that was on display for Houston the previous four seasons. Sunday's 12-point outburst was a season high, and he booted two field goals from beyond 50 yards. Fairbairn's made four of six from long distance this season and is 14 for 22 (63.6 percent) from that distance in his career.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Goes ultra long in loss

    Fairbairn converted two of two field-goal attempts and his lone extra-point kick in Sunday's 33-13 loss to the Seahawks.

    Fairbairn nailed a 21-yarder and then connected from 61 yards out as time ran out in the first half. The usually sure-footed kicker has been plagued by misses in 2021, but the long-distance kick is reminder of previous productive seasons when Houston's offense wasn't such a mess. Fairbairn has 40 points over 10 games this season.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Little work in loss

    Fairbairn did not have any scoring attempts in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

    The Texans entered Indianapolis' side of the field on just two of 11 drives, both times in the fourth quarter, and Houston was not in position to kick field goals. It was the second time this season that Fairbairn was on the field for just one snap.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Misses one kick in loss

    Fairbairn missed his lone field-goal attempt and made two of two extra-point kicks in Sunday's 21-14 loss to the Jets.

    Fairbairn's 55-yard attempt was wide left and was the last sniff Houston had at scoring. Fantasy managers looking for placekickers should avoid Fairbairn, who kicks for a team that's scored just 12.5 points per game over the last six weeks.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Misses extra point

    Fairbairn made all three of his field-goal attempts but missed one of two extra-point tries in Sunday's 22-13 win over the Titans.

    Fairbairn split the uprights from 43, 24 and 37 yards on his field goals, helping him reach double-digit points despite his misfired PAT. After that season-best tally, Fairbairn will strive to keep his scoring touch in Week 12 versus the Jets.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Converts three FGAs

    Fairbairn was successful on three of three field-goal attempts in Sunday's 17-9 loss to Miami.

    Fairbairn's three field-goal attempts and nine points were a season high, which may be attributed to the return of Tyrod Taylor at quarterback. The placekicker entered Sunday's contest with 12 points over the previous five weeks, all games started by rookie quarterback Davis Mills.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Makes two extra points

    Fairbairn missed his lone field-goal attempt and made two of two extra-point kicks in Sunday's 38-22 loss to the Rams.

    Fairbairn was wide right on a 45-yard attempt on the final play of the first half. It's been a rough season for the usually consistent kicker, who has amassed just 12 points over five games. Most of that is due to the team's poor offense, but Fairbairn hasn't helped matters by missing two of five extra-point attempts.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Converts lone attempt

    Fairbairn was successful on his lone field-goal attempt, a 53-yard effort, in Sunday's 31-5 loss to Arizona.

    Fairbairn's established a strong leg and accuracy during his stay in Houston, but he's challenged by an offense that has scored just 30 points over the last four games. Sunday's game was the third time in those four games he's had just one field-goal attempt. If or until the offense can get on track, Fairbairn is a placekicker to avoid. The silver lining is that Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) could return Week 8 against the Rams, which could generate more offense.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Converts lone attempt

    Fairbairn successfully converted his lone field-goal attempt in Sunday's 31-3 loss to Indianapolis.

    Fairbairn has been uber quiet since returning from the injured list Week 4. He's missed three of six attempts, including two extra-point misses, and the offense hasn't afforded Fairbairn many chances.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Rough game

    Fairbairn converted one of two field-goal attempts and one of three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 25-22 loss to the Patriots.

    Fairbairn's typically a better kicker than he showed Sunday, so the temptation is to write this off as a bad week. The missed field goal was an excusable 56-yard try, but the two missed extra points and a kickoff that went out of bounds were problematic. It should be noted that these were his first attempts since returning from a leg injury in Week 4. Other than a kickoff, he did not make the field during last week's 40-0 loss to Buffalo.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: No kicks in return

    Fairbairn did not attempt a kick in Sunday's 40-0 loss to the Bills.

    Fairbairn was active for the first time this season after overcoming a leg injury, but the kicker didn't have any scoring opportunities as Houston was blanked in Buffalo. The veteran will hope to get a few chances to show his stuff in Week 5 versus the Patriots.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Set for Week 4

    Fairbairn was activated off injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Fairbairn missed the first three games while recovering from a leg injury, but the 27-year-old will make his return Week 4 in what figures to be a difficult matchup against a tough Buffalo defense. Fairbairn will replace Joey Slye, who was waived earlier this week after going 11-of-13 on total kicks to start the season.
