  • Texans' John Metchie: Moved to reserve/NFI

    The Texans placed Metchie (knee/illness) on the reserve/non-football illness list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    This officially rules Metchie out for the first four games of the season, and he's expected to miss the entire year after being diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia earlier this summer. Metchie expects to make a full recovery and return to football at some point.

  • Texans' John Metchie: Placed on NFI following diagnosis

    The Texans placed Metchie (knee/illness) on the active/non-football illness list Sunday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Metchie released a statement earlier Sunday stating that he was recently diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia and likely won't play football during the 2022 campaign. While the diagnosis is concerning, the rookie wideout believes he'll make a full recovery and will take as much time as necessary before returning to football activities. Metchie's statement said, "My main focus will be on my health and recovery. Thank you in advance for your support and well-wishes. I cannot wait to come back strong than ever. God bless."

  • Texans' John Metchie: Diagnosed with APL

    Metchie (knee) released a statement Sunday that said he recently was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia and likely won't be playing football during the 2022 campaign.

    Luckily, APL is the most curable form of Leukemia, so Metchie believes that he'll make a full recovery after receiving the necessary medical care. Regardless, the rookie second-round pick is expected to take as much time as necessary before returning to football activities. Metchie's statement said, "My main focus will be on my health and recovery. Thank you in advance for your support and well-wishes. I cannot wait to come back stronger than ever. God bless."

  • Texans' John Metchie: Recovery ahead of schedule

    Metchie (knee) has beat the normal timetables for a player recovering from a torn ligament, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Metchie remains on the sidelines while his teammates participate in OTAs, but the doctor who performed the knee surgery is confident the wide receiver will be ready this summer. "I think he's able to hit all the milestones that the medical staff in Houston wants him to meet in terms of being ready to do things for the team this summer," Dr. Lyle Cain said. The Texans aren't pushing Metchie, who remains confident he'll be ready to play by training camp.

  • Texans' John Metchie: Not participating in OTAs

    Metchie (knee) is with the Texans but he isn't participating in Tuesday's voluntary OTAs, Adam Wexler of SportsTalk790 reports.

    Metchie was spotted jogging on the sideline, but he wasn't able to get any reps in as he continues to rehab from a torn ACL. Texans head coach Lovie Smith said earlier in May that the team is still "in the process" of determining where Metchie is at, but the second-round pick has been confident he'll be ready for training camp in July. Houston obviously wants to be cautious with its rookie wideout, but they still expect him to be able to play at some point during the 2022 campaign.

  • Texans' John Metchie: Expected to play in 2022

    Houston head coach Lovie Smith said the team is still "in the process" of determining where Metchie (knee) is in his recovery, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    After being selected in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft, Metchie told the media that he expects to be ready for training camp in July, but Smith wants to make that assessment for himself. The Texans should know more in a couple of weeks, but they do expect him to play during 2022. The uncertainty revolves around how soon he'll be ready.
