Cheap Houston Texans Christian Covington NFL Stitched Jerseys From China 2017

HOUSTON — Texans defensive end Christian Covington is likely out for the season with a torn biceps, coach Bill O’Brien said Monday.

Covington suffered the injury in the second half of Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks and was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Covington has seen an increased role since Texans defensive end J.J. Watt broke his leg in Week 5 and started Sunday in Seattle.

In seven games this season, Covington had one sack, 16 combined tackles and a forced fumble.

“It’s too bad for him, because he was really playing at a high level,” O’Brien said. “It’s too bad for us, too.”

O’Brien said he isn’t sure who will start in Covington’s place.

The Texans will be facing Rams quarterback Jared Goff for the first time on Sunday, with the exception of Stephen Anderson. The Texans tight end caught passes from Goff during his collegiate career at the University of California, Berkeley. The two still keep in touch – Anderson says he even texted Goff after the Rams traded for wide receiver Sammy Watkins.

“I texted him right after that,” Anderson said on Texans Radio. “I keep in touch with my class, who came out that year. (There were) a bunch of people who are on practice squads or 53-man (rosters) right now. We keep in touch, see how everyone is doing and share our personal stories.”
Goff, selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, has led the Rams to a 6-2 record while averaging the most points per game of any team in the NFL (32.9). The Rams went from worst to first in scoring from 2016 to 2017. Anderson isn’t surprised by the struggles or the success. Knowing Goff, it was a matter of time before everything was clicking.

“Jared has shown a lot of improvement from last season to this season,” Anderson said. “Rams are doing really good right now. I always told people that when he was a rookie. He was young and seeing Jared how he went at Cal, what he needed to do was get comfortable, get comfortable with his teammates, with the system. I talked to him. He really likes his head coach, his teammates and they got him Sammy Watkins.”

Anderson visited Goff this offseason during a trip back to California. The two exchanged jerseys too, so that won’t be happening after Sunday’s game between the Rams and Texans.

“He’s (Goff) got the rest of his Cal teammates jerseys hanging up at his house in L.A. and I’ve been there and seen all that,” Anderson said. “I have his hung up at my place too.”

Anderson finished his career at Cal with 101 receptions for 1,260 yards receiving and touchdown receptions, all which came during his final three seasons with Goff.

The Texans and Rams will kickoff off their Week 10 game at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 3:05 p.m. CT on CBS and SportsRadio 610.

HOUSTON (AP) — The Houston Texans were left searching for answers about how to turn things around after their third straight loss.

One thing they won’t do is switch quarterbacks, with coach Bill O’Brien saying Monday that Tom Savage will start on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

Savage threw for 221 yards and a touchdown on Sunday in his second start since rookie Deshaun Watson sustained a season-ending knee injury in practice. But he was also intercepted twice and lost two fumbles in a 33-7 loss to the Los Angeles Rams, raising questions whether the Texans should replace him with T.J. Yates this week.

O’Brien brushed off that possibility, insisting the problems on offense aren’t all Savage’s fault.

”It starts with coaching,” O’Brien said. ”We’ve all got to coach better, starting with me, but it’s never about one guy; it’s never been about one guy. Football’s about 11 guys trying to do the right thing on every play.”

While O’Brien shifted the blame off of Savage, the quarterback disagreed with his coach.

”To be honest with you, it’s on the quarterback when (we) put up seven points,” he said. ”It’s on me.”

Sunday was Savage’s third start this season. He started the opener before being benched at halftime for Watson after losing two fumbles. He’s performed much the same in the last two weeks, with the offense managing one touchdown each in losses to the Colts and Rams. It’s a stark change from when Watson was running the unit and the Texans set a franchise record by scoring more than 30 points in five straight games.

O’Brien isn’t concerned about Savage’s confidence and scoffed at the notion that he needs to encourage him this week.

”I’m not going to come into the quarterback room with two pom-poms and do handstands and try to pump him up and say: ‘You’re the best, you can do it,’ like the little engine that could,” O’Brien said. ”That’s not what I do. I just try to coach him, try to get him to play better.”

To do that O’Brien said Savage needs to work on ball security and reads, and the rest of the players on offense must do more to help him.

The Texans got a big game from DeAndre Hopkins on Sunday: seven receptions for 111 yards. But Savage had trouble connecting with Houston’s other receivers and none of the rest of them finished with more than 40 yards receiving.

His job could be tougher this week with Will Fuller’s status in question after the receiver injured his ribs against the Rams.

”He’s slightly built, so I don’t know,” O’Brien said of the 6-foot, 185-pound Fuller. ”We’ll have to see how that goes during the week.”

With Savage having trouble getting Houston’s offense going on Sunday, O’Brien inserted Braxton Miller at quarterback for a couple of wildcat-type plays. Miller, who starred at quarterback at Ohio State before moving to receiver, didn’t attempt a pass.

”Just trying to mix it up a little bit,” O’Brien said. ”I just felt like it didn’t really help the rhythm of the offense. It wasn’t Braxton’s fault. It just didn’t really help what we were trying to do. It didn’t have the effect that I thought it was going to have.”

Sunday’s loss left the Texans (3-6) in third place in the AFC South, three games behind the Jaguars and Titans. They’ll have to find a cure for their offensive woes quickly if they hope to have any chance of reaching the postseason for the third straight year.

”Any time you lose – what three in a row? You’ve got to be worried,” cornerback Kareem Jackson said. ”But at the same time, I know the type of guys we got in the locker room. We’re a resilient group. I feel like we can come out of anything. We’ve just got to stay together and continue to fight.”

(Reuters) – Most of the National Football League’s Houston Texans team knelt in protest as the national anthem was played for Sunday’s game in Seattle, an apparent rebuke of team owner Bob McNair for his remark about “inmates running the prison.”

Backlash over the comment rekindled a national debate over NFL players, mostly African-Americans, who have broken with tradition by taking a knee or raising their fists during ”The “Star-Spangled Banner” to protest racial bias in the U.S. criminal justice system.

U.S President Donald Trump escalated the controversy in September when he suggested owners should fire any “son of a bitch” who refused to stand for the anthem.

The opening ceremonies of the Texans’ late-afternoon game against the Seattle Seahawks were not broadcast live on CBS. But the network’s “Post Game Show” aired a brief clip of Houston’s players collectively taking a knee with arms linked along the sideline during the national anthem.

According to the Seattle Times, nine of the Texans stood for the anthem, but the rest were kneeling or seated. The New York Times said about 40 players in all refused to stand. It marked the first time that the Texans as a team knelt in protest during the national anthem, the Houston Chronicle reported.

 
The players were widely reported to have been planning an en masse demonstration against McNair over his choice of words.

“We can’t have the inmates running the prison,” McNair was quoted as saying during a recent meeting with league executives and owners, exhorting them to consider how the kneeling protests could hurt the NFL’s bottom line.

The comment, first disclosed in an article published online by ESPN The Magazine on Friday, sparked immediate outrage from players, fans and supporters of the anthem protests as the NFL sought to tamp down the issue.

In a public apology after meeting on Saturday with the players, McNair, 79, a billionaire who like many NFL owners contributed to Trump’s presidential campaign, insisted that his “inmates” metaphor had been misinterpreted.

“I was not referring to our players when I made a very regretful comment during the owners meeting last week,” he said. “I was referring to the relationship between the league office and team owners and how they have been making significant strategic decisions affecting our league without adequate input from ownership over the past few years.”

He added: “I am truly sorry to the players for how this has impacted them and the perception that it has created for me which could not be further from the truth.”

Asked after Sunday’s 41-38 loss in Seattle how the Texans players’ meeting a day earlier went with McNair, Houston offensive tackle Duane Brown told the Chronicle, “not too well.”

The newspaper said McNair did not attend Sunday’s away game due to health issues.

The national anthem protests began in 2016 when Colin Kaepernick, then a San Francisco 49ers quarterback, began sitting and later kneeling during the anthem to call attention to police shootings of unarmed black men in the United States.

Kaepernick was not signed by any team after becoming a free agent following the 2016 season. He has filed a claim of illegal collusion against the league’s owners.

Customized Houston Texans Kevin Johnson cheap NFL jersey from China

Houston Texans’ third-year cornerback Kevin Johnson has really been struggling in 2017.

With cornerback A.J. Bouye now with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the hope was that Kevin Johnson, a 2015 first round pick, would be able to fill the void this season for the Houston Texans. So far that hasn’t been the case.

Unfortunately, Johnson has struggled a lot this season. Especially against the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday.

Texans Wire pointed out that Johnson is the 114th ranked cornerback in the NFL out of 114 cornerbacks, according to Pro Football Focus.

When looking at Johnson’s PFF profile, it says he’s actually ranked 115th with an overall grade of 32.3 so far this season.

Now you could argue that Johnson could be struggling due to the fact that the Texans’ pass rush isn’t the same without both J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus. But getting burned deep can’t be blamed on a lack of a pass rush.

This might be why the Texans went out and acquired cornerback Jeremy Lane from the Seattle Seahawks as a part of a deal that sent left tackle Duane Brown to the pacific northwest.

In case you’re wondering, Lane’s Pro Football Focus grade is not much better than Johnson’s this season. He’s the 101st ranked cornerback with an overall grade of 42.8.

If things don’t work out with Lane, the good news is that the Texans have an easy way to get rid of him without costing themselves anything, since his contract for the 2018 and 2019 seasons aren’t guaranteed.

The Texans currently have the 22nd ranked pass defense in the NFL, since they give up an average of 238 yards per game through the air.

Houston will have a bit of a break this week given the fact that they’re facing the Indianapolis Colts, who don’t have a very explosive offense.
