NFL Injury Report:
Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith is entering the
final year of his current contract with the team. For his part, he’s hoping it’s
not his final season in Houston, and he told Mark Berman of FOX 26 that the
Texans are open to signing him to a contract extension.
Texans Antonio Smith on heading into final year of contract:"I told them I wanted 2 be here & I wanted to spend the rest of my career here"
— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) May 30, 2013
Smith paired with J.J. Watt last season to wreak havoc on
opposing offensive lineman and quarterbacks. The 31-year-old finished the
season with seven sacks and two forced fumbles.
This season, Smith will earn $6 million and count $9.5
million against the salary cap. This cap hit could be reduced if he’s able to
work out an extension with Houston, something that would seem to benefit both
sides if they are interested in retaining him for at least one more season.

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster gave the team quite a scare when he was carted off the field during OTAs with a calf injury.
The initial feeling after he was checked out was that the injury wasn’t serious at all. It has come forth that it’s serious enough that the zen-like featured back/actor will skip all activities until training camp starts.

JJ Watt has only been in the NFL for two seasons, but the reigning Defensive Player of the Year is already one of the most popular players in the league. He’s even getting his own shoe. Last week, the Houston Texans star defensive lineman tweeted a photo of his Nike “MegaWatt” shoes and said they [...]
The great thing about the NFL is that there are so many positions that every year, there is almost always at least one player who has a breakout year on every team, no matter how good or bad the team is. This is one part in a 32 part segment detailing one potential breakout player (rookies don’t count) for the 2013 NFL season on each NFL team. For the New York Giants, that player...
3.27 Houston Texans Brennan Williams, OT, North Carolina (6-6, 318)
Williams is a tall tackle, one that should spend his time in the NFL on the right side. His size certainly helps him out, but he may lack the talent to be a starting tackle at the NFL level. As with the case with a lot of taller players, he tends to play straight up and fail to move his feet, which results in lapses...
What team in the NFL doesn’t want to win the Super Bowl each year? What team doesn’t have that as their end goal? Sure, we as outsiders can look at all the teams at this point and can say pretty much for certain which teams don’t have a chance in hell at winning it all in the upcoming season, but each roster has the expectation to win it all. But J.J. Watt wants you to know...
3.33 Houston Texans Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU (6-3, 262)
Montgomery is a solid run-stopping defensive end, who can step in on early down situations right away. He does have a tougher time maintaining his balance and tends to get pushed around when it comes to pass rushing. He could develop into a three-down player, but it’ll take a couple years to get there. The Texans have decent...

Houston Texans’ OTAs after undergoing minor hip surgery earlier this offseason.
As he continues to rehab from the procedure, Reed is expected to join the
Texans before their mandatory three-day minicamp which begin on June 11,
according to Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com.

Currently rehabbing in Atlanta, the Houston Texans expect free safety Ed Reed to join the team before mandatory minicamp next month and begin practicing by late July. Roughly six weeks after helping lead the Baltimore Ravens to a 34-31 upset victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, the 34-year-old Reed inked a three-year contract worth $15 million to become a Texan...
Texans Expect to Have the Bulls on Parade Come February
One of the great things about the off-season is that every team can claim they have a chance to make the post season and even make a run at the Super Bowl. Few can honestly say that they have what it takes. According to Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt Houston is one of those teams.
“We won another division...
Houston Blog Presswire
In the Spring of 2007, the Houston Texans dealt two second-round draft picks to the Atlanta Falcons for largely unproven quarterback Matt Schaub. Despite not having much more on his NFL resume than some admirable back-up work for Michael Vick, Schaub flashed something that made second-year Head Coach Gary Kubiak think this was the guy he wanted to run his...
