O.J. Howard, TE (HOU)

Targeted once Week 3

Howard did not catch his lone target in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Bears in Week 3.

Howard appeared in line for a greater role after the Texans announced Brevin Jordan (ankle) would not play, but he was challenged by Jordan Akins, who was promoted from the practice squad. Howard was on the field for 18 snaps compared to 17 for Akins, who caught three passes including a touchdown. It's unclear how the tight end position will shake out when Jordan is ready to play again, but it's likely one of Howard or Akins will be back on the outside. After a two-TD effort in Week 1, Howard has one catch (two targets) for seven yards since.
