State of the Texans:
Running back, Davin Meggett
The Houston Texans announced they released rookie running back Davin Meggett from the practice squad and brought back inside linebacker Cameron Collins (pictured above). Collins will now be on the practice squad for the second time this season, and this looks like a move just in case the linebacker depth takes anymore hits.
With an ailing Bradie James (Hamstring), Tim Dobbins (Shoulder) and Darryl Sharpton coming back from injury, the inside of the defense is looking to get healthy. Collins is 6-2 and 241 lbs. and was signed when Cody White was placed on the active roster in early October.
This is nothing more but an insurance move for the Texans at this point.

Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub was honored when his jersey and cleats were flown to Canton, Ohio to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Schaub was being honored for his 527 yard passing day (43 completions on 55 attempts) with 5 touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 18th. The monumental day landed Schaub with the second best passing day in NFL history tying...
Coming off 2 straight overtime games and fighting some injuries the Houston Texans now head to Tennessee to face off against a division rival in the Titans on Sunday at 1:00 ET on CBS. When these 2 teams matched up earlier in the season the Texans were able to leave out of that game with the win. Even with the offense struggling to get it going and the defense giving up it’s season...
The Houston Texans are dealing with an interesting two game stretch where the defense has been mortal against the pass and given up 983 total yards to the Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars. This is quite the wake up call to a defense that has been solid since the start of the 2011 season and spoiling the fan base with something they had not seen in Houston.
Despite a struggling...
Either Ndamukong Suh just got away with murder (ok, just a little kick), or his leg went mysteriously up in the air in an akward manner as Matt Schaub's acorn sack collided with his foot; just a simple misunderstanding. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said at a Lions charity event Tuesday night that it's very difficult for the league to know exactly if DT Suh's intent...
Injuries have left the Houston Texans linebacking corps very thin.
With star Brian Cushing (knee) out for the season and starter Brooks Reed out indefinitely with a groin injury, young players Whitney Mercilus and Darryl Sharpton will have to step up to keep the defense rolling as the Texans (10-1) play for postseason positioning.
Coach Gary Kubiak says of the group: ''...
Houston cornerback Johnathan Joseph (hamstring) will be a game-time decision in Week 13.Fantasy Spin:Joseph makes the entire Houston defense stronger when he's covering the opponent's top receiver. Joseph missed last week and Matthews Stafford put up 441 yards.
Earlier in the week, Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub told Houston radio station SportsRadio 610 that he wouldn’t want Ndamukong Suh as a teammate and that Suh wasn’t “Houston Texan” worthy… whatever that means. Of course the question came after the now much publicized Thanksgiving Game between the Lions and Texans where not only one of the most egregious NFL rules was unearthed...
The Houston Texans were early-season Super Bowl favorites, to say the least. Despite a strong start early in the season, in which they only reinforced those pre-season Super Bowl predictions, the Texans appear to have fallen from their seat as a superior AFC team.Over the last two weeks they have been challenged by not-so-challenging teams. Both Jacksonville and Detroit gave Houston...
There will be no Ndamukong SUHspension coming…
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello announced via Twitter that the Lions defensive tackle will not be suspended following his controversial groin kick to Texans QB Matt Schaub last Thursday.
Our office has notified the Lions that N Suh will not be suspended for last Thursday’s incident. It will be reviewed for a potential fine.

With the Titans facing off against the Houston Texans once again this week, this time in the hopefully friendlier confines of LP Field, I'll once again be doing a Q&A with Texans blogger Steph Stradley.
If you have any questions for Steph about how the Texans have changed since late September or what the rest of the year looks like for them, post them in the comments section.
Once again in the days following a Lions Thanksgiving Day game, a lot of the debate and discussion is surrounding the actions of defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
After kicking Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin during Thursday’s game the debate rages on as to whether or not it was done intentionally. Although Suh hasn’t commented on the specific play Schaub himself has...
The Houston Texans are trying to overcome mounting absences as they near another playoff appearance and a franchise milestone, while the Tennessee Titans have made a coordinator change while attempting to keep their slim postseason hopes alive.
