Texans' Nick Rose: Signs with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rose auditioned for the Texans on Wednesday and signed a contract with them, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This is expected to be a short-term roster addition. Starting placekicker Ka'imi Fairbairn is sidelined by a minor undisclosed injury that may cause him to miss Saturday's preseason game against the 49ers. Rose is a local product out of the University of Texas and kicked for Washington and the Los Angeles Chargers in 2017. He's made 11-of-14 field-goal attempts and 5-of-6 extra-point kicks.

Texans' Seantrel Henderson: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henderson (undisclosed) was back on the field Wednesday after being limited to conditioning work Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Head coach Bill O'Brien downplayed the injury when discussing it Tuesday, so it's not surprising to see Henderson back. Henderson is anchoring the right tackle spot on the offensive line.

Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn: Could miss upcoming preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fairbairn could miss the Texans' upcoming preseason contest with an undisclosed injury but should be fine moving forward, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

By all accounts, it doesn't look like Fairbairn will miss much time, if any. The Texans kicker is dealing with an undisclosed injury that is not expected to linger for much longer. Barring any unforeseen setbacks, Fairbairn is on course to be the team's starting kicker for the regular season opener.

Texans' J.J. Watt: Active during joint practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watt made several impact plays during Wednesday's joint practice session with the 49ers, John Harris of the Texans' official site reports.

Watt made plays from both the right and left sides of the line, forcing San Francisco quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo into hurried and errant throws, or to adjust his delivery, or to throw an interception. The defensive end said earlier in the week that he will be ready to go Week 1 against the Patriots and backed up those words with his actions Wednesday.

Texans' Whitney Mercilus: Remains out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mercilus (undisclosed) has not practiced in over a week while dealing with a soft-tissue injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The injury was earlier described as undisclosed, so "soft-tissue" represents a bit more detail, though not much. Head coach Bill O'Brien said Mercilus is being managed and "doing fine." There is no word on his availability for Saturday's preseason tilt against the 49ers, though it's safe to assume Houston will exercise precaution with one of its defensive stars.
