Player Updates

Kurt Hinish

Kurt Hinish

DT / Houston Texans
Hinish (illness) practiced in full Thursday.
What it means
Hinish missed Wednesday's session due to an illness, but his return to Thursday's practice as a full participant indicates the issue isn't a concern. The 300-pounder should continue serving as a rotational piece within Houston's defensive line Sunday against Jacksonville.

Derek Stingley Jr.

Derek Stingley Jr.

CB / Houston Texans
Stingley (arm) was a full participant during the Texans' practice Thursday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
What it means
Stingley sustained a left arm bruise which briefly sidelined him during Houston's Week 4 loss to the Chargers. The starting cornerback was limited during practice Wednesday, but he appears to be doing fine again after logging a full practice heading into Sunday's game against Jacksonville. Stingley has tallied 23 tackles, one sack and three passes defended since being drafted with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Chris Conley

Chris Conley

WR / Houston Texans
Conley signed with Chiefs' practice squad Thursday, Charles Goldman of Chiefs Wire reports.
What it means
Conley was released from the Texans' practice squad Tuesday, after appearing in two games for the team this season, while appearing in 16 for them in 2021. The 29-year-old was drafted by the Chiefs in 2015 and played with them through the 2018 season.

Brevin Jordan

Brevin Jordan

TE / Houston Texans
Jordan (ankle) isn't practicing Thursday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
What it means
Jordan hasn't practiced since tweaking his ankle in the Texans' 16-9 loss to the Broncos in Week 2 and looks to be trending toward a third consecutive absence Sunday in Jacksonville. Before the Texans formally decide on his status for the weekend, they'll wait and see if Jordan can fit in any on-field work Friday. With Pharaoh Brown having since been released and Jordan looking unlikely to be available Week 5, O.J. Howard and Jordan Akins look set to split reps at tight end against the Jaguars.

Houston Texans

Houston Texans

D / Houston Texans
The Texans recorded a sack and a fumble recovery in the 34-24 loss to the Chargers in Week 4.
What it means
The Texans have given up 23.3 points per game (17th), but they have shown some upside with six turnovers (12th) and 11 sacks (12th) through four games. They draw a tough matchup on the road against the Jaguars, who rank sixth in the league with 26.3 points per game. QB Trevor Lawrence has been sacked just six times, and he has thrown only two picks this year. Texans D/ST may be a decent DFS option in Week 5 because of their upside. However, fantasy managers shouldn't trust this unit in season-long leagues.

Blake Cashman

Blake Cashman

LB / Houston Texans
Cashman (concussion) was listed as a non-participant during Wednesday's walkthrough, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.
What it means
Cashman was ruled out for the remainder of the team's Week 4 loss to the Chargers after suffering a concussion and remained sidelined for the team's first practice ahead of Week 5. If he's unable to clear concussion protocols before Sunday, Neville Hewitt would be a likely candidate to step into an expanded role against Jacksonville.
