Texans' Senio Kelemete: Healthy to enter Week 11
Kelemete (thigh) is absent from Wednesday's injury report.
Kelemete suffered a thigh injury during a Week 9 win over the Broncos, and appears to have fully recovered during Houston's bye. Barring any setbacks, expect Kelemete to draw the start at left guard against the Redskins on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Texans' Aaron Colvin: Limited Wednesday
Colvin (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Colvin has not suited up since Week 4 due to a lingering ankle injury, but appears to have made real progress in his recovery during Houston's bye. If the 27-year-old is not able to return to the field Week 11, expect Michael Tyson to serve as the primary backup to starter Shareece Wright.... See More ... See Less
Texans' Zach Cunningham: Practices on a limited basis
Cunningham (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's Practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Cunningham appears to have made notable progress in his recovery from a sprained MCL during Houston's bye. The second-year linebacker initially suffered his injury during a Week 8 win over the Dolphins, and appears to have a real shot at suiting up for Sunday's tilt against the Redskins. The extent of Cunningham's participation in practice throughout the week will likely shed some light on his chances of returning to the field Week 11.... See More ... See Less
Texans' Johnathan Joseph: Limited in practice Wednesday
Joseph (knee/ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Joseph appears to have progressed in his recovery from a sprained knee and ankle during the Texans' bye, and has a chance of suiting up against the Redskins on Sunday. If the veteran cornerback is unable to play Week 11, expect Johnson Bademosi to once again receive an uptick in defensive snaps.... See More ... See Less
Texans' DeAndre Hopkins: Logs limited practice Wednesday
Hopkins (foot) was limited at practice Wednesday.
Hopkins played all but one of the Texans' 62 snaps on offense in Week 9's win over the Broncos, en route to hauling in 10 of his 12 targets for 105 yards and a TD. With no reported setbacks in that contest, we expect Hopkins -- who has scored in four straight games -- to be fine for Sunday's game against Washington.... See More ... See Less
Texans' Keke Coutee: Limited practice Wednesday
Coutee (hamstring) was limited at practice Wednesday.
Earlier this week, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official website relayed that Coutee "is trending upwards," in the words of coach Bill O'Brien. If the rookie pass-catcher is able to return to action Sunday against Washington, he'll face competition for targets (behind top wideout DeAndre Hopkins) from newcomer Demaryius Thomas, who is in line to play his second game for Houston this weekend....

Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Cleared to practice
Coach Bill O'Brien said Foreman (Achilles) will take part in practice Wednesday, opening a 21-day window for the Texans to activate him from the PUP list, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
As Foreman predicted Monday, the Texans have cleared the running back to embark on the final phase of his recovery from a torn Achilles, which he sustained Nov. 19, 2017. If he eventually makes enough progress to return to the 53-man roster, he'll re-enter a backfield composed of Lamar Miller and Alfred Blue.... See More ... See Less
Texans' Demaryius Thomas: Expanded role expected Sunday
Thomas is expected to gain more involvement in the Houston offense in Sunday's game against the Redskins, Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official site reports.
Thomas made his Houston debut in Week 9 against the Broncos, catching three passes for 61 yards -- all in the first quarter. Plans are afoot to expand Thomas' role and find ways to get him the ball on a more consistent basis throughout the game. The veteran wideout used the Week 10 bye to absorb more of the Texans' playbook, something coach Bill O'Brien took notice of during the team's first practice of Week 11. The matchup with Washington should be a favorable one for Thomas, as he's line up against a defense that ranks 25th against the pass (270.1 yards per game) for the season.... See More ... See Less
Texans' Keke Coutee: Expects to play Week 11
Coutee (hamstring) said he expects to return for Sunday's game at Washington, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official website reports.
Coutee had an optimistic outlook after returning from a bye week to participate in Monday's practice, though he previously said he won't return until his hamstring is 100 percent healthy. The rookie slot receiver has been dealing with the injury since early August, necessitating a three-game absence to start his career and a two-game absence after he aggravated the issue during a Week 7 win over Jacksonville. Speaking after Monday's session, coach Bill O'Brien said there's a "strong possibility" Coutee will make it back for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Fantasy players should note how targets are divided behind lead dog DeAndre Hopkins, with Demaryius Thomas and Coutee candidates to handle steady workloads in an offense that hasn't gotten much help from its running backs and tight ends....

Texans' Dylan Cole: Good chance to play again in 2018
Coach Bill O'Brien said that Cole (wrist) has a "good chance" to return from injured reserve and play again during the 2018 season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Cole was placed on injured reserve during late September after undergoing wrist and knee surgery, and was initially expected to miss the entire 2018 season. If the second-year linebacker is able to eventually resume practicing and return to the field this season, he'll serve as a depth option and special teams asset.... See More ... See Less
Texans' Zach Cunningham: Could play Week 11
Coach Bill O'Brien said that Cunningham (knee) is "trending toward" playing during Sunday's game against the Redskins, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Cunningham appears to be progressing well in his recovery from a sprained MCL suffered during a Week 8 win over the Dolphins. The starting linebacker appears to have a legitimate shot of suiting up against the Redskins on Sunday, and if he remains sidelined would "definitively" be ready to go Week 12.... See More ...

Texans' DeAndre Carter: On track to return kicks Week 11
Coach Bill O'Brien called Carter a "prime candidate" to be a punt returner Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Carter was claimed off waivers by the Texans last week, and appears on track to serve as the team's top return man during Sunday's game against the Redskins. If Carter shows well, he could conceivably earn a consistent role on special teams in Houston. The four-year pro is worth monitoring in fantasy leagues that award points for return yards....
