Top Texans News

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Two sacks in win

    Greenard recorded five tackles (four solo) including two sacks in Sunday's 30-6 win over the Steelers.

    Greenard had all but one sack on the day for the Texans' defense. He played just 29 snaps on defense -- his lowest so far this season -- but made the most of his time out on the field. Greenard leads the team with three sacks and ranks fourth with 16 total tackles.

  • Texans' Christian Harris: Leads team in tackles

    Harris had 13 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 30-6 win over the Steelers.

    It's the most tackles Harris has recorded in a game this season and his 51 defensive snaps was also the most he's played in a game this year. He's now up to 23 tackles in four games and ranks second to Henry To'oTo (27) on the team in that category.

  • Texans' Steven Nelson: Records second pick

    Nelson recorded four tackles and an interception in Sunday's 30-6 win over the Steelers in Week 4.

    Nelson's first-quarter interception halted the Steelers' first drive and led to a field goal that increased Houston's lead to 10-0. The interception, his second, is something the cornerback prepared for by watching film, per Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle. Nelson made note of a 72-yard touchdown pass Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett threw to Calvin Austin in a Week 3 win over the Raiders. When Nelson noticed Austin again lined up on the left side on a second-and-18 play, he sensed the same route was coming. It was, and Nelson broke back and snagged the ball over Austin's reach.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Logs two sacks in win

    Greenard recorded five tackles, two sacks, three quarterback hits and three tackles for loss in Sunday's 30-6 win over the Steelers in Week 4.

    Greenard, who recorded his first two-sack game since Oct. 2021, upped his total to three quarterback takedowns through four weeks. He was in the midst of an eight-sack season that year. The edge rusher dealt with injuries since then and recorded 1.5 over eight games last season.

  • Texans' Laremy Tunsil: Could return this week

    Tunsil (knee) is improving enough that there's optimism he could play Sunday against the Falcons, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Tunsil has missed each of the team's last three games as he continues to recover from his injury. His return would certainly be a big boost to the Texans' offensive line, which has been peppered by injuries to start the 2023 campaign. His practice status throughout the week will be worth monitoring as momentum for his return builds.

  • Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Another double-digit week

    Fairbairn converted all three field-goal attempts and all three extra-point kicks in Sunday's 30-6 win over Pittsburgh in Week 4.

    That makes two consecutive weeks of double-digit scoring for Fairbairn, who scored 13 points in Week 3's win over the Jaguars. Houston's offense has showed spunk the last two weeks, scoring 67 points, which has made Fairbairn a legitimate fantasy asset. The 29-year-old has connected on 11-of-12 field-goal attempts and 9-of-9 extra-point kicks, and Fairbairn's 42 points ranks fourth among kickers.

  • Texans' John Metchie: Two targets in win

    Metchie caught one of two targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 30-6 win over the Steelers.

    Metchie turned a short crossing route into his first career reception of more than 20 yards. He's been active for three consecutive games following a hamstring injury that cost him the season opener, and the 2022 second-round pick has averaged 15 snaps and been targeted five total times while active. It's unclear if Noah Brown's eventual return from a groin injury will impact Metchie's usage.
