One of the Houston Texans’ marquee signings in free agency, Aaron Colvin, has an opportunity to play in Week 12.
The Houston Texans could be as healthy as they’ve been in a long time as Aaron Colvin is viewed to have a good opportunity to play on Monday night against AFC South rivals, the Tennessee Titans. Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle first reported the news via his Twitter account:
The Texans signed Colvin to a four-year $34 million deal and he had been a solid addition to the defense and was easily one of best cornerbacks the team had on the roster. The Texans were able to pry him away in free agency from the Jacksonville Jaguars where Colvin was one of their most underrated contributors in the secondary.
Colvin was out of action for the Texans since Week 4 when he suffered an ankle injury against the Indianapolis Colts. Despite the fact that the Texans have won their last seven games, having Colvin back will go a long way in bolstering the depth at cornerback and provide the team with another defender who can hold his own in coverage and provide good run support.
Colvin was practicing on a limited basis last week before he was ruled out in the game against the Washington Redskins, but he now has a great opportunity to play in the fifth-ranked defense in the NFL which is allowing opposing offenses to score an average of 20.5 points per game. Meanwhile, the Texans secondary is only giving up 234.5 passing yards which rank eighth in the NFL.
