The Texans are expected to release WR Demaryius Thomas today per source. Thomas tore his left Achilles in Week 16. It’s too early for a time table, but he’s returned from the injury quickly in the past.

Gary Kubiak is back on an NFL coaching staff, but it's not in Denver.

The Minnesota Vikings hired the former Broncos and Texans coach on Monday, though his exact title is still to be determined, sources told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Fantasy Impact:

Kubiak interviewed earlier Monday in Minnesota and was scheduled to travel to Jacksonville to interview with the Jaguars on Tuesday. The Vikings apparently didn't let him out of the building. In addition to adding Kubiak to the coaching staff, Minnesota is bringing in his son, Klint Kubiak, to be its quarterbacks coach under new offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski.

WR Demaryius Thomas wants to return to Texans

Houston Chronicle - [Full Article]

With his surgically repaired torn Achilles propped up behind him, veteran wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is looking at an uncertain future.

Although the 31-year-old five-time Pro Bowl selection would like to be back with the Texans, it will take him roughly six months to rehab the injury. And his contract would need to be adjusted as he's due a nonguaranteed $14 million base salary next year.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story said, whether the Texans would need Thomas with the healthy return of Will Fuller and Keke Coutee working in tandem with All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins is another question.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring, questionable) took full practice reps again Thursday. Coutee was limited all of last week before ultimately sitting out his fifth game, so a week of full practices looks like a significant upgrade. At this point, we think he’ll play.

Texans WR Keke Coutee (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 17. Coutee may be able to return this week. Given Demaryius Thomas’s injury, he could see a sizable workload in his first game back.
