Texans' Roderick Johnson: Claimed by Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson (knee) was claimed by the Texans on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.

Johnson was let go by the Browns on Tuesday in order to make room for the team to sign Greg Robinson. Johnson, who is now entering his second season, missed the entire 2017 regular season due to a knee injury. A 2017 fifth-round pick, Johnson will have to prove the injury is behind him if he hopes to land a spot on the Texans' 53-man roster.

Texans' D'Onta Foreman: Unlikely 100 percent for start of camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foreman (Achilles) appears unlikely to be a full participant for the start of training camp, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Foreman, who underwent surgery to repair a torn left Achilles tendon in November of 2017. is encouraged by the results of the rehabilitation work and progress he's made since the surgery, but also understands Achilles' injuries can be difficult to come back from. "They told me when it happened that it will be a long process," Foreman said. "It's been tough. You have your long days and you have your days where you feel like, 'Man, you hear all the statistics about the injury and what might be,' but my faith is really high and so is the trainers and strength and conditioning staff." The Texans feel he'll play this season, but nobody is committing to a timetable.

Texans' Deshaun Watson: Gets rid of knee brace
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watson (knee) practiced without a brace at mandatory minicamp this week, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. "The knee is doing good," Watson said Wednesday. "For the nine-week goal we put in from the beginning [of the offseason program], I'm pretty much where I wanted to be. Kind of passed it inside in the weight room, mentally and also on the field, so everything's going smoothly right now."

More than seven months removed from tearing the ACL in his right knee during a Week 9 practice, Watson has made significant progress in his recovery, taking part in all drills but 11-on-11 team work. Prior to minicamp, he was moving about with a brace and later a sleeve during OTAs, so the lack of either this week indicates his presence could be felt at the very start of training camp on July 26. Even if he's limited at that point, preseason games will be the true testing ground for the knee in question in advance of the Texans' Week 1 matchup at New England.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Signs five-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney signed a five-year, $50 million contract extension that includes $21 million guaranteed, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Entering the final year of his rookie contract, McKinney is now under contract through the 2023 season. The age 25 linebacker has been a consistent player since entering the league, starting in all 32 games for the Texans over the past two seasons while totaling 224 tackles in the same span. He's a hallmark in the center of their defense and his contract indicates he'll continue to be for the next several years.

Texans' Martinas Rankin: Undergoes foot surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rankin had surgery to repair a foot injury that he suffered during rookie minicamp, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.

The specific's of Rankin's injury remain unclear, but it may cost the third-round pick a good portion of training camp. He's expected to be healthy in time for the regular season, though he's currently without a concrete return timetable.
