Texans' Bruce Ellington: Expected to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Wednesday that Ellington (concussion) is expected to return for Sunday's game in New England, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

With the Texans playing on Thursday night, Ellington never had a real shot to return for Week 2. The long week seemingly sets him up for a return in New England, where he figures to step back in as the No. 3 receiver in a struggling offense. Ellington was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Texans' Ryan Griffin: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (concussion) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Griffin has passed through the concussion protocol and should be ready to return for Sunday's game in New England. With C.J. Fiedorowicz on injured reserve while recovering from a concussion of his own, Griffin is set to assume a role as the Texans' primary pass-catching tight end. Given the team's lack of depth at wide receiver, Griffin could be busy Week 3.

Texans' Will Fuller: Not yet ready for games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Fuller (shoulder) isn't ready to play, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Fuller's return to practice Monday may have created hope for an imminent return, but O'Brien shut down the notion in short order. The speedy wideout does at least seem to be a bit ahead of his initial timetable, which was estimated at 2-to-3 months when he suffered a broken collarbone Aug. 2. Fuller likely is targeting Week 4 or 5 for a return to games.

Texans' Alfred Blue: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday and is preparing to play in Sunday's game against the Patriots, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Sidelined by a high-ankle sprain the first two weeks of the season, Blue appears primed for a return Week 3, though it isn't clear how much of a role he'll have in the Houston offense. D'Onta Foreman served as Lamar Miller's top backup in Thursday's 13-9 win over the Bengals, and while the rookie only averaged 3.3 yards on 12 carries, he may nonetheless retain a role in the offensive game plan. Given the struggles on Houston's offensive line in combination with his own lack of pass-catching skills, Blue will have a tough time producing even if he reclaims the No. 2 job.

Texans' Johnthan Banks: Reaches deal with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Banks signed a contract with the Texans on Wednesday.

A second-round pick out of Mississippi State in 2013, Banks never met expectations during parts of four seasons with the Buccaneers, Bears and Lions. That said, at 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, Banks brings intriguing size at cornerback and will offer some depth in the secondary with the Texans unlikely to have Kevin Johnson (knee) available for the next four to six weeks.
