Houston recovered a fumble and scored the Texans' first touchdown in Sunday's 20-14 loss to Indianapolis.

EDGE Analysis

Houston, who was signed to the Texans roster after J.J. Watt (leg) and Whitney Mercilus (pectoral) were lost for the season, played 47 snaps Sunday, his most since joining the Texans. He should continue to get opportunities with Mercilus and Brian Cushing (suspension) both unavailable. Since joining his new team, the eight-year veteran has recorded four tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and Sunday's fumble-recovery TD.

Houston is expected to sign with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Houston was released by the Bears just before the beginning of the regular season after suffering a knee injury during the preseason. His signing indicates the veteran linebacker is now back to full strength. Houston could become a key cog in the Texans defense, especially considering Whitney Mercilus (pectoral) will likely be ruled out for the season.

Houston (knee) is expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Houston missed out on last week's exhibition as he was still working his way back to full speed following surgery to repair a torn ACL. He seems to have fallen behind Leonard Floyd and Willie Young on the depth chart and will face added competition for snaps when Pernell McPhee (knee) eventually returns. However, Houston should remain a key member of the rotation at outside linebacker and could push for a double-digit sack total should health cooperate for an entire 16-game slate. In his last full season with the Bears in 2015, the Texas product notched 42 tackles, eight sacks and a fumble recovery.

Houston (knee - ACL) is on schedule in his recovery, Patrick Finley of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Houston lasted until Week 2 last season before tearing his ACL for the second time in three years -- but this time it was in his left knee and not his right. Despite participating in the Bears' OTAs this spring, the 2010 second-rounder hesitated to say whether he's returned to full strength. Thus, it seems like he's not quite there yet, but it doesn't seem like it will take much longer either.

Houston (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve on Thursday

EDGE Analysis

Houston ends his season prematurely due to a torn ACL for the second time in three seasons, a tough break for one of the league's best pass rushers. In two games, the linebacker registered four tackles, but it could be argued that his leadership on a young Bears' defense is what will be missed the most. Rookie Leonard Floyd now steps in as the starting weakside linebacker after impressive the coaching staff through the first two games, recording eight tackles and 0.5 sacks thus far.
