Fairbairn successfully converted 4-of-5 field-goal attempts, including the game-winning kick in overtime, in Sunday's 19-16 win over Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Fairbairn's leg rescued the Texans for a second consecutive week in overtime, and he may have saved Houston's season after it started 0-3. He's scored 13 points each of the last two weeks and shares the league lead with 16 field-goal attempts. Fairbairn has benefited from the Texans' inability to finish in the red zone -- Houston ranks 31st in red zone scoring at 36.4 percent.

EDGE Analysis

On a day when the Colts' Adam Vinatieri set a new NFL career record by making his 566th field goal, the Texans' Ka'imi Fairbairn was the bigger headliner. He booted two field goals in overtime to clinch Houston's first win of the season. This was the second straight week with double-digit points for Fairbairn, who has 11 field-goal attempts through four games, tied for most in the NFL.

Fairbairn converted all three of his field goal attempts and his lone extra-point kick in Week 3's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Houston's offense was unable to finish in the red zone Sunday, scoring just twice in five trips inside the 20, which enabled Fairbairn's highest scoring output of the season. His 54-yarder was a season long and gives him four makes in six attempts beyond the 50-yard line for his career.

Fairbairn converted both extra-point kicks and was 1-for-2 in field-goal attempts in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Titans in Week 2.

EDGE Analysis

Fairbairn connected from 34 yards and was short on a 54-yarder. He's got the leg to make it from that distance, as evidenced by his 3-for-4 from beyond 50 yards in 2017.

Fairbairn (undisclosed) has returned to practice, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Texans signed Nick Rose to fill in for Fairbairn, but he missed both of his field goals attempts in Saturday's preseason game against the Rams. Assuming no further setbacks, Fairbairn is locked in as the team's kicker after making 20 of 25 tries in 16 games last year, en route to recording 92 points.

Fairbairn could miss the Texans' upcoming preseason contest with an undisclosed injury but should be fine moving forward, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

By all accounts, it doesn't look like Fairbairn will miss much time, if any. The Texans kicker is dealing with an undisclosed injury that is not expected to linger for much longer. Barring any unforeseen setbacks, Fairbairn is on course to be the team's starting kicker for the regular season opener.

Fairbairn practiced kicking in wet conditions Friday following a heavy downpour that drenched the practice field at Houston's training facility in White Sulpher Springs (W. Va.), Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fairbairn made some kicks and, as expected, missed some on a wet field that included puddles. "That's part of being a young kicker. Really understanding the elements and how he has to change some of things that he's doing in the elements. But I thought overall he did a good job," said head coach Bill O'Brien. Fairbairn is the lone placekicker in camp, so he should be the team's kicker for the regular season barring injury or poor performance during preseason. He made 20 of 25 field goal attempts and 30 of 32 extra points in 2017. His 92 points and 5.8 points-per-game were well below the team league averages of 114.6 points and 7.16 PPG, although the state of Houston's quarterback play without Deshaun Watson was a major contributor. With a healthy Watson as a starter last season, Fairbairn averaged 8.67 PPG.
