Jackson agreed to a four-year deal with Houston on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Jackson isn't considered a shutdown corner, but he was one of the top players in a thin cornerback free agent class. Jackson is inked in as a starter at one of Houston's corner spots, while Johnathan Joseph is penciled in at the other.

Jackson and the Texans are engaged in ongoing negotiations, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Jackson is inching toward becoming a free agent for the first time in his career. He had some struggles early in his career, but the 20th overall pick in the 2010 draft has improved steadily through the years. He had 57 tackles and three interceptions in 13 starts in 2014.

Jackson is unlikely to receive the franchise tag, the Houston Chronicle reports.The tag for cornerbacks will be approximately $13 million, and while Jackson has proven to be a solid starter, he isn't quite worth that kind of money for just one season. The Texans still want to keep him around, so the two sides will likely try to hammer out a multi-year deal before free agency begins in March. Jackson is averaging two interceptions and 10 passes defensed through his first five NFL seasons, but he hasn't reached 60 tackles since his rookie campaign of 2010. To be fair, he did record 56 and 57 the past two seasons, despite being limited to 14 and 13 games. On a per-game basis, Jackson provided reasonable IDP production for a cornerback in 2014.

Jackson suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament during Houston's loss to Philadelphia in Week 9, the Houston Chronicle reports. He's expected to miss three-to-four weeks.

The good news for the Texans is that one of those weeks, Week 10, is their bye week. A.J. Bouye, who had a 51-yard interception return for a score last week, will start until Jackson is ready to return.

Head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday that Jackson is day-to-day, but refuted the report that Jackson's injury is to his knee, the Texans' official site reports. "No, I didn't say anything about a knee," O'Brien said. "You didn't hear that from me."

O'Brien appears to have learned much from his days working for head coach Bill Belichick in New England. Now we have an undisclosed injury making Jackson day-to-day heading into the Texans' bye week.
