Top Jordan Akins News

  • Giants' Jordan Akins: Lands in New York

    Akins is signing with the Giants, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    A 2018 third-round pick, Akins never topped 418 yards or two TDs in his four years with the Texans, though he did play at least 13 games each season. He and Ricky Seals-Jones will compete to replace Evan Engram (Jaguars) as the Giants' top pass catcher at tight end, though the upcoming NFL Draft could bring a third competitor for the job.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Sitting out Sunday

    Akins (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

    Akins was questionable due to an illness and won't be available for the final game of the season. The 2018 third-round pick is set to hit free agency during the offseason after totaling 24 receptions for 214 yards and zero touchdowns in 2021.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Questionable for finale

    Akins (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against Tennessee.

    Akins was held off the practice field Thursday due to an illness, but he returned in a limited capacity Friday. Although he appears to be trending in the right direction ahead of Sunday's Week 18 contest, Antony Auclair could see a slight uptick in playing time if Akins is ruled out.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Misses Thursday's practice

    Akins didn't participate in Thursday's practice session due to an illness.

    Akins wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, but he was unable to participate in practice Thursday. Since he wasn't placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Texans presumably believe that the tight end is dealing with a non-COVID illness. However, his participation Friday should provide some clarity regarding his status for Sunday's matchup against Tennessee.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Goes untargeted in loss

    Akins was not targeted during Sunday's 23-7 loss to the 49ers.

    Akins, who was on the field for just five snaps, has three catches for 30 yards over the seven games since Houston's bye week. He was a healthy scratch in three of those games.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: One snap in win

    Akins did not catch his lone target and played one snap in Sunday's 41-29 win over the Chargers.

    With rookie Brevin Jordan back on the field after not playing the previous week, Akins returned to a minor role, although his one target came in the red zone. It's clear the Texans are developing the rookie, and Akins could be playing out his final days in Houston.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Steps in for rookie

    Akins caught two of three targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 30-16 win over Jacksonville.

    Akins played 20 snaps, his most since Week 9. Rookie Brevin Jordan, who has supplanted Akins as the top receiving threat at tight end, was active but did not play Sunday after dealing with a hand injury during the practice week. It's been established over the last several weeks that a healthy Jordan is the preferred receiving option and is expected to get more opportunities over the final stretch of the season, so Akins' Week 15 involvement should be regarded as a blip.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Minor role in return

    Akins caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 33-13 loss to the Seahawks.

    Akins was active for the first time since Week 9, but it did not represent a return to prominence at tight end. He played just 12 snaps, fourth among the five tight ends active for the game. Houston has turned its focus to the development of rookie Brevin Jordan, who caught a touchdown pass and was targeted seven times, so fantasy speculators can forget about Akins.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Returns to mix Sunday

    Akins is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Akins is thus active for the first time since Week 9, and in the process, will provide the Texans with added TE depth Sunday. With Pharaoh Brown and Brevin Jordan also in the mix, however, Akins remains a speculative fantasy option.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Inactive Sunday

    Akins (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.

    With Akins still the odd man out, the Texans' Week 13 tight end options will be Pharaoh Brown, Brevin Jordan and Antony Auclair.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Won't suit up Sunday

    Akins (coach's decision) will not play Sunday against the Jets.

    Akins will be passed over for a second straight week in favor of Pharaoh Brown, Antony Auclair, and rookie Brevin Jordan. The 2018 third-round selection will try to earn a chance to get back on the field for Week 13 against the Colts.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Inactive in Week 11

    Akins is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

    Akins is the odd man out in the Texans' tight end mix Sunday, with Pharaoh Brown back in action. Also on hand to handle Week 11 snaps at the position are Antony Auclair and rookie Brevin Jordan.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Grabs two targets in loss

    Akins caught two of three targets for seven yards in Sunday's 17-9 loss to Miami.

    Akins, who has multiple catches in six of the last seven games, also had a fumble late in the fourth quarter that stymied the Texans' comeback attempt. There could be change coming in the second half after Houston's bye in Week 10, as the 29-year-old tight end is in the final year of his contract and is not expected back in 2022. The Texans are developing rookie tight end Brevin Jordan to take on the receiving role at the position.
