Texans' Jelani Jenkins: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (hand) was a full practice participant Wednesday and is in line to play Sunday against the Colts.

Jenkins is set to make both his season and Texans debut Sunday. The 25-year-old played the last four seasons in Miami, providing a 110-tackle season in 2014. He's on the Texans' depth chart as a reserve linebacker, but their linebacker corps is littered with injury, meaning Jenkins could be utilized defensively earlier than expected.

Texans' Jelani Jenkins: Set to sit Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins (hand) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

Jenkins just signed with the Texans on Wednesday, but he'll have to wait to make any serious contributions. Still, he slots in as a reserve linebacker, and it will be difficult for him to be fantasy relevant even when he's healthy.

Texans' Jelani Jenkins: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jenkins has hand injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Jenkins was just signed by the Texans this week and was a limited participant Friday. It's unknown this point how severe the injury is or exactly what role the 25-year-old will have with his new team.

Texans' Jelani Jenkins: Inks deal with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans signed Jenkins to a contract Wednesday.

With Dylan Cole (hamstring) expected to miss multiple weeks and Brian Cushing (suspension) sidelined for five more games, the Texans brought Jenkins aboard to bolster their depth at middle linebacker. Jenkins, who hasn't appeared in any games in 2017, saw action in nine contests last season with Miami, logging 29 tackles. He'll assume the roster spot of Marcus Burley, who was released in a corresponding move.
