DEC 17 TUNSIL DOWN? Texas left tackle Laremy Tunsil has been forced to exit the team’s critical AFC South matchup vs. the Titans on Sunday with an apparent lower-body injury.
Tunsil has been fighting through knee issues all season long and was been forced to miss three games earlier in the season.
Tunsil has been replaced in the lineup by Josh Jones and is currently questionable to return.
DEC 16 KEENUM STARTING According to reports from KPRC, the Houston Texans are set to start Case Keenum at quarterback in place of the injured C.J. Stroud.
This comes as a surprise to many, who assumed that DeMeco Ryans would go with former starter Davis Mills, who was the team’s No. 1 QB before the arrival of Stroud.
Per the report, Keenum’s experience is what made the difference entering such a big game for the Texans playoff hopes.
DEC 13 OILERS VS TEXANS The Tennessee Titans are set to face off vs. the Texans on Sunday in Nashville, and they plan on wearing some uniforms that Houston sports fans will not appreciate.
The Oilers then moved to Nashville in 1997, where they kept their name for two seasons before re-branding as the Titans in 1999.
The Houston Texans then came to the Cheap NFL Jerseys in 2002, with many fans clamoring for the franchise to re-take the Oilers as their mascot. Due to the Adams family owning the rights to that name, however, it was not possible.
Now, the Titans will ostensibly be flaunting that logo in the face of Texans fans everywhere on Sunday afternoon.
DEC 12 VERRETT RETURNS TO SAN FRANCISCO Former Houston Texans cornerback Jason Verrett is onto a new team, or more accurately, returning to an old team as he signed with the San Francisco 49ers’ practice squad on Monday.
Verrett, 32, signed with Texans’ practice squad in mid-October, but never appeared in a game before his release a month later.
The No. 25 pick by the then-San Diego Chargers in 2014, Verrett’s career has been plagued by a multitude of injuries. Now in his 10th season between the Chargers, 49ers and Texans, he has only played more than 10 games twice.
