Texans' Keion Crossen: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen will start at cornerback Sunday against the Bengals, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Phillip Gaines (knee) is inactive Sunday, so Crossen will receive the starting nod for the third straight contest. The 24-year-old has played every defensive snap in each of the past two games, and has 15 total tackles and one pass defensed.

Texans' Keion Crossen: Sparks defense Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen recorded nine tackles (eight solo) and a pass defensed across 60 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Bears.

Crossen slotted in as a starter Sunday with Phillip Gaines (knee/shoulder) ruled out of the contest. The 24-year-old played well in first start, as he was second on the team in tackles. Look for Crossen to continue to see a high snap count should Gaines continue to miss time.

Texans' Keion Crossen: Will play against Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen (hamstring) is active for Sunday's matchup against Jacksonville.

The West Carolina product has yet to see a snap on the defensive side of the football this season, but he has played an involved role for the Texans in another respect, fielding at least 84 percent of the special-teams workload in every game. Crossen will be out there in Week 5 against divisional rival Jacksonville, as Houston looks to pick up its first win of 2020.

Texans' Keion Crossen: Lands on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen (hamstring) is considered questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Jaguars.

Crossen was a full participant at practice all week until logging a limited workload Friday. As a result, he has been given a questionable designation. His final status will depend on how he is feeling closer to kickoff.

Texans' Keion Crossen: Sees minimal defensive work in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen appeared in all 16 of the Texans' regular-season games in 2019, recording 13 tackles with one pass breakup.

Crossen was acquired from the Patriots prior to Week 1 and served mostly in a special-teams role for Houston. The Texans' beleaguered secondary is expected to get a makeover before the start of 2020, so there could be an opportunity for Crossen, who is one of a few cornerbacks under contract for next season.

Texans' Keion Crossen: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen (hamstring) is officially active for Sunday's game against Kansas City.

Crossen logged limited practice throughout the week, and, as evidenced by this news, he'll be ready to help slow down the lethal passing attack led by Patrick Mahomes. Crossen won't draw the start at cornerback but will provide valuable depth at the position Sunday.

Texans' Keion Crossen: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen is considered questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs due to a hamstring injury.

Crossen logged three consecutive limited practices this week and is seemingly a true game-time decision. His status will presumably be determined by how he feels during warmups.

Texans' Keion Crossen: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen (undisclosed) was not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Sarah Barshop of reports.

Crossen exited Week 7's loss to the Colts due to an undisclosed injury, and he's already resumed operating without limitations. The second-year pro is on track for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders.

Texans' Keion Crossen: Leaves Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen was forced to leave Sunday's game in the fourth quarter due to an undisclosed injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Crossen was one of three defensive backs to exit the lineup -- Johnathan Joseph (shoulder) and Phillip Gaines (ankle) were the others -- leaving the Texans with two healthy corners at the end of the game. Crossen was replaced on the field by rookie Xavier Crawford.

Texans' Keion Crossen: Packs bags for Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Patriots traded Crossen to the Texans in exchange for a sixth-round pick, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Crossen was a seventh-round pick for the Patriots in the 2018 NFL Draft, so New England gets a slight return on investment for a special-teams player. Expect Crossen to fill a similar role with the Texans.

Patriots' Keion Crossen: Playing Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen (hamstring) is active for Sunday's tilt against the Dolphins, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.

Crossen made his NFL debut in Week 3, seeing just a single defensive snap and a few more on special teams. He'll likely take on a depth role once again in Week 4, barring injuries to the secondary force him onto the field.

Patriots' Keion Crossen: Limited in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Crossen has yet to make his NFL debut. The rookie seventh-round pick will work to get healthy in time for Sunday's game against Detroit with the hope of earning snaps in the Patriots' defensive-back rotation.

Patriots' Keion Crossen: Won't play Week 2 versus Jags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen (hamstring) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

The rookie seventh-round pick was healthy for Week 1 but ended up being a healthy scratch anyway, so this won't affect the defensive dynamic for New England.

Patriots' Keion Crossen: Ready for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen (back) does not appear on the injury report ahead of Sunday's season opener against the Texans.

Crossen, who missed time in training camp with back spasms, is slated for a rotational role at cornerback during the outset of the 2018 season.

Patriots' Keion Crossen: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen (back) was reverted to the Patriots' injured reserve list Saturday per the NFL Media official transaction log.

Crossen exited Sunday's practice with back spasms and has been sidelined since. The seventh-round pick in April's draft was looking to earn a spot as a depth corner and special teams contributor on the Patriots' final roster, but will now be sidelined for the season unless he and the team reach an injury settlement.

Patriots' Keion Crossen: Absent with back spasms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Crossen missed Sunday's practice session due to back spasms, Jeff Howe of The Athletic Boston reports.

Crossen has been working as a depth corner for New England after being selected by the team in the seventh round of April's draft. Barring his back spasms become a recurring issue, he'll be expected to return to the practice field in the near future.
