Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (leg) did not participate in practice Tuesday, Dec. 3. Head coach Gary Kubiak said Daniels worked out with trainers on the side.
Huddle Up: With the Texans up against a short week, it looks as if Daniels will miss an 8th straight game.

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said Monday, Nov. 25, that TE Owen Daniels (knee) is 'real close' to returning. He is currently on the Injured Reserve/designated-to-return list.
Huddle Up: While Daniels has been out, Garrett Graham has more than adequately filled the Texans' tight end needs. If/when Daniels returns, he and Graham will split the looks in what has historically been a role that produces fantasy points--not necessarily enough for two starters, but at least for one and a spot starter.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (leg) said he will start running next week. Daniels is currently on the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list.
Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like he's on track to return soon—he might not be back until it's too late, if he even returns this year given Houston's record.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels was placed on Injured Reserve designated to return, which means he'll miss at least eight weeks.
Huddle Up: Eight weeks essentially wipes out the remainder of the fantasy regular season for Daniels--and opens an obvious window of opportunity for Garrett Graham.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels will be sidelined four to six weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his fibula.
Huddle Up: Garrett Graham's fantasy value sees a sharp uptick given the way the Texans use their tight ends.

The Houston Texans are worried the fibula injury to TE Owen Daniels might be serious enough to sideline him for a few weeks.
Huddle Up: As if the Texans needed more worries with a three-game losing streak and a slumping QB, now the health of their second-leading receiver (24-252-3) is in question. If Daniels does miss any time, though, fellow TE Garrett Graham -- already much involved in the offense with 15 catches, 141 yards and 3 TDs -- would see even more targets.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and is listed as probable for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Daniels has a modest 12 catches for 103 yards so far, but the Texans love targeting their TEs in the red zone, and sure enough, Daniels has a trio of scoring receptions, only one off the league TE pace.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (shoulder) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: The Texans need all hands on deck for Sunday's matchup against the Patriots, and that especially goes for Daniels, who had a team-high 9 receptions for 91 yards in last week's wild-card win over the Bengals.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels fully practiced Friday, Jan. 4, and is probable for the team's Wild Card game.
Huddle Up: Daniels has been banged up most of the year and is currently nursing chest and knee injuries. He should be good to go for the Texans' playoff game, though Garrett Graham and James Casey continue to steal targets and the occasional touchdown.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back, knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 3.
Huddle Up: Mainly due to nagging health issues, Daniels' season has mirrored that of the team as whole: Hot at the start with 5 TD catches in the first 8 games, but sluggish down the stretch with only 1 scoring grab over the second half of the season.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 28, after being limited the previous day. He's good to go for Week 17.
Huddle Up: Good thing for the Texans, who still need to win to assure themselves of home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (hamstring, neck) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 27.
Huddle Up: Not a positive sign for Daniels, who was at least able to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday. What happens now Friday will go a long way in determining the TE's status for Sunday.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (hamstring) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 21, and is probable for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Daniels should be out there if you need him, but his fantasy owners can't be too confident as the TE has had 4 straight games with 43 receiving yards or fewer and has found the end zone only once since Week 9.

Houston Texans TE Owen Daniels (back) practiced fully Saturday, Dec. 8, and he is listed as probable for the Week 14 game against the New England Patriots Monday, Dec. 10.
Huddle Up: Between Daniels, Garrett Graham and FB/TE James Casey, Texans' tight ends have hauled in a dozen scoring receptions this season -- making for one of Week 14's most favorable matchups going against a Patriots' defense allowing the second-most fantasy points to opposing TEs.
