  • Texans' Danny Amendola: Turns back clock

    Amendola recorded seven receptions on eight targets for 113 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 28-25 loss to the Titans.

    Amendola was a substantial part of the offense thanks to the absence of Chris Conley (knee) and early exit of Brandin Cooks (knee). He took advantage of his opportunity and showed immediate rapport with Davis Mills, keying the Texans' comeback efforts. Amendola found the end zone from seven and 26 yards away while also racking up big gains of 37 and 21 yards. The end result was his first game with over 100 yards since the 2019 season. Looking ahead, Amendola is set to hit free agency and could sign another short-term deal to serve as a depth receiver with the Texans or a new team.

  • Texans' Danny Amendola: Back from COVID list

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

    Amendola landed on the list last week and is now back on the active roster after missing one game. Before going on the list, Amendola had missed the prior four games with a knee injury, but he should be back on the field for Sunday's season finale versus the Titans.

  • Texans' Danny Amendola: On COVID list

    Amendola (undisclosed) has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

    Until Amendola clears COVID protocols, Brandin Cooks, Nico Collins and Chris Conley (knee) are in line to serve as Houston's top available wide receivers. Amendola, who had been dealing with a knee issue and recently was activated off IR, last suited up Week 12.

  • Texans' Danny Amendola: Not on injury report

    Amendola (knee) doesn't appear on Wednesday's estimated injury report.

    Amendola, who underwent an arthroscopic knee procedure Nov. 29, was activated from injured reserve Christmas Day, but he ended up on the inactive list a day later for Houston's win over the Chargers. The Texans may have just wanted to exercise some extra caution with the veteran slot man by holding him out for another game, but his absence from the injury report entirely for Week 17 puts him on track to play Sunday in San Francisco. The 36-year-old doesn't necessarily fit in with the Texans' rebuilding effort, so he may not be tasked with a large role over the team's final two games of the season.

  • Texans' Danny Amendola: Not playing Week 16

    Amendola (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

    Though Amendola returned to practice Thursday and was reinstated from injured reserve Saturday, the Texans will apparently give him more time off to recover from the knee injury that sidelined him for the past three games. With Brandin Cooks (illness) also sidelined after landing on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Nico Collins, Chris Conley, Phillip Dorsett, Chris Moore and Jalen Camp will represent Houston's available options at receiver.

  • Texans' Danny Amendola: Comes off IR

    Amendola (knee) was activated off IR in advance of Sunday's game against the Chargers, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    With top wideout Brandin Cooks on the COVID-19 reserve list, Amendola's return comes at an opportune time. While it remains to be seen how much volume he'll be up for in Week 16, Amendola could pick up some targets out of the slot Sunday.

  • Texans' Danny Amendola: Could play Sunday

    Per coach David Culley, there's "a possibility" that Amendola (knee) could play Sunday against the Chargers, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Amendola has been designated to return from IR, but this nugget suggests that he's not a lock to be activated for the contest. If he is, Amendola could see immediate snaps out of the slot while bolstering a Week 16 Houston WR corps that may be without Brandin Cooks (reserve/COVID-19 list).

  • Texans' Danny Amendola: Designated to return from IR

    Amendola (knee) has been designated to return from IR.

    The Texans now have a 21-day window in which to activate the slot man, but if he's able to demonstrate that he's ready for game action in the coming days, he could step into key role this Sunday against the Chargers in the event that Brandin Cooks (illness) isn't activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Amendola, who last suited up Week 12, has recorded 17 catches (on 29 targets) for 135 yards and a TD in seven contests to date this season.
