by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Gaines will end the 2020 regular season with four consecutive absences due to a lingering knee injury. Through 12 appearances with the Texans this year, Gaines had 24 tackles (18 solo) and one defended pass.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Can't return to Week 16 lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) is listed as inactive heading into Sunday's matchup against Cincinnati.

Gaines has now missed three consecutive games given this latest development. He was deemed inactive last Sunday in a near-identical spot, ultimately sitting down against the Colts after logging a full week of limited practice participation and entering the day with a questionable tag. Keion Crossen is in line for a third consecutive start by way of Gaines' Week 16 absence.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Questionable against Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) is questionable for the team's Week 16 matchup against the Bengals, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

Gaines missed each of the team's last two games with the injury. However, he returned to practice in a limited capacity each day this week, leaving open the possibility of his return in Week 16. Keion Crossen would take on an increased role if Gaines remains sidelined.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.

The 29-year-old was originally considered questionable for Sunday's contest but has now been downgraded to out. Keion Crossen could step in to start at cornerback for the Texans in Gaines' absence.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Availability in question
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Colts, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

Gaines started against the Colts in Week 13, but he missed last week's loss to the Bears. The 29-year-old will look to return to action after logging a trio of limited practices this week. If he can't go, Keion Crossen likely will step into the starting cornerback role again.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Unavailable Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee/shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Bears.

The Texans' secondary takes yet another hit, as Gaines was the replacement for Bradley Roby (suspension). Keion Crossen (foot) is listed as questionable, but if he plays, he likely will start at cornerback opposite Vernon Hargreaves. Anthony Chesley and Cornell Armstrong are the other candidates to step in.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Questionable Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.

The 29-year-old stepped into the starting role last week with Bradley Roby suspended, but he's now dealing with the knee issue. John Reid or Cornell Armstrong could be forced into the starting role Sunday if Gaines is unavailable.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Steps in to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines is starting at cornerback Sunday against the Colts, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

The 29-year-old played only three defensive snaps over the past three games, but he'll move into the starting role with Bradley Roby suspended the rest of the season. Gaines totaled 11 tackles over two games when Roby went down with an injury earlier this season.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Resumes practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (ankle) participated in Sunday's practice, Aaron Wilson reports.

Gaines missed less than a week of practices due to his ankle injury. The depth cornerback should handle his usual minor role during Thursday's season-opener against Kansas City.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Misses practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (ankle) didn't suit up during Wednesday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

It's unclear how Gaines suffered the injury, however, it was serious enough to force him out of Wednesday's scrimmage. The Texans are set to begin the season Sept. 10, so he'll have just a week to recover if he wants to suit up. The veteran is expected to handle a depth role in the defense, so his absence likely won't affect much on the defense.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Re-ups with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (ankle) signed a one-year contract with the Texans on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gaines suffered a season-ending ankle injury at the end of October, but appears on track to be healthy for the start of training camp. Given the contract is a veteran's minimum, there's no guarantee the 2014 third-round pick of the Chiefs will be a part of the team's roster when the 2020 campaign kicks off.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Heading for surgery and IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines will undergo surgery on his left ankle and be placed on injured reserve, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gaines suffered a severe high-ankle sprain during Sunday's loss to the Colts, and he'll face a five-month recovery after undergoing surgery. The 28-year-old joined the Texans on a one-year deal after Week 1 and had 13 tackles (12 solo) and two passes defensed in six games. The team acquired Gareon Conley from the Raiders to bolster their depth at cornerback.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Diagnosed with sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines sprained his ankle in Sunday's game with the Colts, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

After a scary scene resulted in Gaines being carted off the field, this is some good news, as X-rays revealed no fracture. He'll head for an MRI on Monday.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Seen on crutches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (ankle) was seen on crutches following Sunday's game against the Colts, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

Gaines was on the wrong end of a hit from a teammate when he bent back on his ankle late in the fourth quarter. He subsequently was carted off the field and, as evidenced by this news, seems to be exercising some caution with the injury. It's likely the team will have more news surrounding the specifics of the injury in the coming days.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Carted off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines left Sunday's game against the Colts and won't return due to a left ankle injury.

Gaines was on the wrong end of friendly fire, when he was hit hard by a teammate and hurt his ankle. He was in significant pain and was carted off the field late in the fourth quarter. Gaines presumably won't return to the game with a minute left, and it's likely the team will comment on the specifics of the injury following the game or in the coming days.

Texans' Phillip Gaines: Inks deal with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (concussion) agreed to a one-year contract with the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Gaines recently reached an injury settlement with the Browns after a concussion landed him on their injured reserve. He appears to be over the issue, and will now work to quickly settle into a depth role in the Texans' secondary.

Phillip Gaines: Works out for Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines worked out for Houston on Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

The tryout is significant in that it proves Gaines has recovered from the concussion that landed him on Cleveland's injured reserve Sep. 3. Gaines appeared in seven games for the Bills last season, recording 30 total tackles and two pass breakups over 367 snaps. The Texans currently have six healthy cornerbacks.

Phillip Gaines: Reaches injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (concussion) was released off injured reserve Saturday,

Gaines was set to spend the season on IR unless he and the Browns released an injury settlement, which is ultimately what happened. The 28-year-old is now free to look for a new opportunity once he clears concussion protocol.

Browns' Phillip Gaines: Bounces to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (concussion) cleared waivers and was placed on injured reserve, NFL.com reports.

Gaines was vying for a special-teams spot with the Browns, but he battled a neck injury early in camp and was ultimately waived with an injury designation. He'll now remain on injured reserve unless an injury settlement is reached.

Browns' Phillip Gaines: Returns to practice field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaines (neck) is participating at practice Monday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Gaines was unable to practice Saturday due to the neck issue, but his quick return to action indicates it was a minor injury. The 28-year-old re-signed with the Browns in March and is poised for a depth role in the secondary, assuming he cracks the 53-man roster.
