  • Texans' Jordan Akins: TE target leader in loss

    Akins caught three of six targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the Browns.

    Akins, who has been the tight end target leader for the last several games, was given competition for targets by Brevin Jordan (five), who had been a healthy inactive the previous three weeks. If Houston plans to have Jordan active going forward, or if rookie Teagan Quitoriano's role continues to grow, Akins' opportunities could diminish.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Snaps TD drought

    Akins caught five of five targets for a team-high 61 yards and a 25-yard touchdown catch in Sunday's 30-15 loss to Miami in Week 12. He also had a fumble that turned into a Dolphins defensive touchdown.

    Akins hauled in his first touchdown since Week 3 and had his fifth catch of more than 20 yards. That helped make up for the fumble, which came after a jarring hit by safety Eric Rowe. It's looking like the benching of Brevin Jordan -- at three consecutive weeks and running -- is a permanent decision, so Akins should continue to see the bulk of targets at tight end.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Minimal impact in loss

    Akins caught two of three targets for eight yards in Sunday's 23-10 loss to Washington in Week 11.

    Akins and the rest of the Houston pass-catchers suffered as Davis Mills had one of his worst performances of the season. The Texans manage a total of five yards on offense in the first half and only 148 for the game. Akins has experienced a revival this season and leads the tight end group in receiving yards, but rookie Teagan Quitoriano appears to be pushing for the top spot on the depth chart.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Three grabs in loss

    Akins caught three of three targets for 72 yards in Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Giants.

    With Brevin Jordan a healthy inactive, Akins ramped up his production after a couple of quiet games. He accounted for Houston's longest play of the game, a 46-yard catch-and-run which set up one of five red-zone opportunities that failed to lead to a touchdown. It's unknown how the Texans plan to use Jordan going forward, but it is a boost to Akins' value if his benching becomes long term.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: One target in loss

    Akins did not catch his lone target in Thursday's 29-17 loss to the Eagles in Week 9.

    For a second consecutive week, Akins was not heavily involved. He had a four-week stretch -- 10 catches, 154 yards, one touchdown -- that hinted at fantasy worth at a notoriously unproductive position. If there was a game where Houston tight ends could make a difference, it was Thursday when both Brandin Cooks (personal) and Nico Collins (groin) were unavailable, but it did not materialize for Akins.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Low output in loss

    Akins caught one of two targets for five yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to Tennessee in Week 8.

    Akins was one of several skill-position players whose production was subdued on a day when the offense gained just 161 yards. Akins had gained 154 yards on 10 catches, including a touchdown, over the last four weeks, but without a credible running game, quarterback Davis Mills seems unable to carry the offense.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Yardage leader Week 7

    Akins caught three of four targets for a team-high 68 yards in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Raiders.

    He continued his strong play at the tight end position and appears to be clicking with quarterback Davis Mills. Akins was given an opportunity with Brevin Jordan sidelined the last three weeks and played himself from the practice squad to the active roster. However, Jordan returned Sunday and led the position group in snaps, and he could eat into Akins' opportunities going forward.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Joining active roster

    The Texan will sign Akins off the practice squad Wednesday and add him to their 53-man roster, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Akins, who has been active for three games this season, has recorded seven catches on eight targets for 86 yards and a touchdown in that span. With Brevin Jordan's (ankle) availability still up in the air for when the Texans return to action Week 7, Akins will give the team added tight end depth to go along with O.J. Howard.

  • Jordan Akins: Back on practice squad

    Akins reverted to the Texans' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Akins was activated for the third game in a row with starting tight end Brevin Jordan (ankle) out again during Sunday's win over the Jaguars. While the 30-year-old tight end hauled in both of his targets for 22 yards, he saw his lowest playing time of the season -- 10 of Houston's 58 offensive snaps -- while filling in behind O.J. Howard (46 snaps) and Mason Schreck (24 snaps). Akins will now require a permanent spot on the active roster in order to suit up for the Texans again in 2022.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Makes catches count in win

    Akins caught both his targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 13-6 win over the Jaguars in Week 5.

    Akins played just 12 snaps but once again made an impact for Houston, as he moved the chains on 3rd-and-10 on the Texans' game-deciding drive in the fourth quarter. This was the third time that Akins was elevated from the practice squad, and Houston will need to sign him if it wants to use him on the active roster again. He's been the team's most consistent receiving threat at tight end with 86 yards, and the club released Pharaoh Brown last week, so a permanent spot for Akins seems assured.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Elevated to active roster

    The Texans elevated Akins on Saturday from their practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's matchup against the Jaguars, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    With Brevin Jordan (ankle) still out, Akins will join the active roster for a third consecutive contest. Over his previous two appearances, the fifth-year tight end has caught five of six targets for 64 yards and a touchdown while playing 35 total offensive snaps. He figures to garner a similar role against Jacksonville in Week 5, but he'll be out of elevations following the contest, which means he'll have to be signed to the active roster if he's going to make any more appearances for Houston this season.

  • Jordan Akins: Returns to practice squad

    Akins reverted to the Texans' practice squad Monday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    Akins played 20 of Houston's 57 offensive snaps during Sunday's loss to the Chargers after being activated for the second week in a row. The 30-year-old caught both of his targets for 33 yards while playing as the No. 2 tight end behind O.J. Howard (43 offensive snaps) and ahead of fellow practice-squad player Mason Schreck (19 offensive snaps). Akins also lined up on six special-teams snaps, and he will be eligible for just one more elevation from the Texans' practice squad this season.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Snags two balls Week 4

    Akins caught two of two targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 34-24 loss to the Chargers.

    Akins was up from the practice squad for a second consecutive week due to injuries to Pharaoh Brown (hip) and Brevin Jordan (ankle). O.J. Howard was the starting tight end and led the position group in snaps, but Akins, who was part of the team last season, has system knowledge and could step into a larger role if necessary.

  • Texans' Jordan Akins: Back on Houston's roster

    Akins was elevated to the Texans' active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    Akins saw four targets in last week's loss to the Bears, including a touchdown reception, and it's possible the 2018 third-round pick could see a similar workload again with Pharaoh Brown (hip/shoulder) listed as questionable for Sunday's contest against the Chargers and nominal pass-catching tight end Brevin Jordan (ankle) already ruled out. If Brown were unable to play, O.J. Howard and Akins would be the only active tight ends on the roster.
