J.J. Watt released his official rosters for his annual J.J. Watt Charity Classic softball game. The game being held on May 14th at Minute Maid Park will feature Houston Texans offensive players vs. Houston Texans defensive players.
The Houston Texans made six draft picks over the weekend, filling holes at wide receiver and offensive line as well as adding a safety, defensive tackle and a running back. The Texans also spent Sunday signing a lot of undrafted guys to their roster. Houston is a town that understands you can find gold after the draft (see: Arian Foster).
The Houston Texans have some priorities for the second day of the NFL Draft. They filled a hole with wide receiver Will Fuller on Thursday but they have a few holes still to plug on Friday.
There are four positions you should think about when looking at the big board for the Texans that they might take on Friday.
Moving up one spot in the first round might not seem like it was necessary, considering only one of the three wide receivers the Texans were targeting had been taken, but the Texans wanted Fuller and they didn’t want him getting away.
Jose Altuve is convinced the struggling Houston Astros are about to get as hot as he is. Altuve opened the game with his third leadoff homer of the season, doubled twice and scored three runs to help the Astros avoid a sweep with a 7-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night.
SportsRadio 610 is hearing that the Texans are solely focused on three wide receivers to take with the 22nd pick in the draft. We’re told that Baylor’s Corey Coleman, TCU’s Josh Doctson, and Notre Dame’s Will Fuller are the three guys the Texans would like to fall to them.
Houston Dash and USWNT Captain Carli Lloyd suffered a Grade 1 MCL sprain Saturday night in Orlando the Dash announced Monday. An MRI scan this morning confirmed the injury.
Lloyd suffered the injury in the fifth minute when she went in for a tackle against an Orlando player. The team expects Lloyd to miss three to six weeks while recovering from the sprain.
Cole Hamels had never hit more than two batters in a game. So suffice it to say, the Texas left-hander was off to a strange start when he plunked the first two Houston hitters Wednesday night.
The defending NFC Champion Carolina Panthers currently do not have the best cornerback in the NFL on their team anymore. According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapaport, the team rescinded the franchise tag for the player today.
