  • Texans' DeAndre Houston-Carson: Steps up when needed

    Houston-Carson filled in for the injured Jimmie Ward (hamstring) in last week's win over the Bengals and is expected to do so again Sunday against Cardinals, Jon Poorman of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    After several appearances on the NFL transaction logs this season, Houston-Carson has settled in with the Texans. He played all 64 defensive snaps and made two big plays in the fourth quarter in the Week 10 surprise win over Cincinnati: the safety intercepted a Joe Burrow pass in the red zone, then he knocked Tyler Boyd out of bounds after a 64-yard gain as the receiver appeared headed to the end zone with just over two minutes left in the game. "For me, that's the play of the game, and it just shows the type of mindset DeAndre has," Houston head coach DeMeco Ryans said. "It's just effort, and he's always going to do his job, and he's always in the right place. We're happy to have him." Houston's defense held the Bengals to a field goal, which set up Matt Ammendola's game-winning field goal.

  • Texans' DeAndre Houston-Carson: Inked by Houston

    The Texans signed Houston-Carson from Baltimore's practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Houston-Carson played all 17 games (six starts) with the Bears last season, recording 45 tackles (26 solo), one interception and one forced fumble, so he boasts the experience to quickly begin to contribute for his new team. This season, he has handled a depth role across four appearances, most notably stepping up for the Ravens while Marcus Williams (hamstring) was unavailable.

  • Ravens' Deandre Houston-Carson: Opportunity knocks in Baltimore

    Houston-Carson signed a contract with the Ravens on Monday.

    Houston-Carson spent his first seven seasons with the Bears. He is coming off a 2022 campaign in which he played all 17 games (six starts) and recorded 45 tackles (26 solo), one interception and one forced fumble in the process. The veteran will now compete for the opportunity to provide depth in the Ravens secondary.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Set to hit free agency

    Houston-Carson posted eight tackles in the Bears' 29-13 loss to the Vikings in Week 18, and ended the season with 45 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble over 17 games played.

    Once the Bears placed Eddie Jackson (foot) on injured reserve after Week 11, Houston-Carson took on a full-time role. As a starter, he averaged five tackles per game and was a solid IDP option. It's possible that his solid work down the stretch helps him gain a significant role on a team as he enters unrestricted free agency.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: First interception of season

    Houston-Carson picked off a pass and recorded five tackles in the Bears' 25-20 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

    Since taking over the starting safety role in Week 12, Houston-Carson is averaging six tackles to go along with an interception. He should remain a high-floor IDP option in the fantasy playoffs.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Surprises with big game

    Houston-Carson notched nine tackles in the Bears' 31-10 loss to the Jets on Sunday.

    After not having more than two tackles in any game and posting a total of eight tackles on the season, Houston-Carson was pressed into duty when Jaquan Brisker was inactive and Eddie Jackson (foot) left the game with an injury. If either starting safety is forced to miss continued time, Houston-Carson could be considered as an IDP streaming option.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Set for depth role

    Houston-Carson is one of five safeties the Bears placed on their 53-man roster, according to the team's official site.

    With Eddie Jackson and rookie Jaquan Brisker expected to hold down the top-two safety spots, Houston-Carson will likely see snaps in a rotational role. Unless Jackson or Brisker miss time, Houston-Carson can be expected to have inconsistent IDP value.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Active in minicamp

    Houston-Carson was an active participant as a member of Chicago's first-team defense during OTA sessions June 8, Adam Jahns of The Athletic reports.

    Houston-Carson was re-signed to a one-year, $1.77 million contract by the Bears in March after the defensive back ended this past season on the team's injured reserve with a forearm injury. The safety played the most defensive snaps (397) of his six-year career last season, totaling 51 tackles, four passes defended and one interception over 13 games. Houston-Carson appears healthy, and possibly primed for a larger role, after notching two interceptions of quarterback Justin Fields during team drills June 8.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Re-signs with Chicago

    Houston-Carson (forearm) signed a one-year, $1.77 million contract with the Bears on Saturday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Houston-Carson has primarily played on special teams during his six-year NFL career, though he played a season-high 397 defensive snaps during 2021. He recorded 51 tackles (33 solo), one interception and two fumble recoveries in 13 games before suffering a broken arm Week 14. It's unclear where Houston-Carson stands in his recovery, though he should be ready for training camp.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Ends season on injured reserve

    Houston-Carson (forearm) was placed on injured reserve Dec. 20, and he ended the season with 51 tackles, an interception and four passes defensed.

    After playing a backup role early in the season, Houston-Carson saw heavy snaps over a four-week period (Week 7 through Week 11) that helped him post the best season of his six-year career. Unfortunately, he broke his arm in Week 14, and he'll try to recover from surgery fully ready for the 2022 season. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and if he can land a starting role, he showed the ability to post solid tackle totals, which could make him a sleeper IDP option.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Goes on injured reserve

    The Bears placed Houston-Carson (forearm) on injured reserve Monday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Houston-Carson broke his arm in the Bears' loss to the Packers in Week 14. He'll soon undergo surgery to address the injury, so his move to IR was merely a formality. In a corresponding move, the Bears activated offensive tackle Germain Ifedi (knee) from IR.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Out for season

    Houston-Carson broke his arm during the Bears' 45-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday and will be out for the season, according to head coach Matt Nagy, Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Houston-Carson was filling in for Xavier Crawford, who left earlier in the game with a concussion. With Houston-Carson now done for the year and Crawford's status for Week 15 up in the air, the Bears' secondary could be stretched thin when they take on the Vikings in Week 15.

  • Bears' Deandre Houston-Carson: Sustains arm injury

    Houston-Carson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers due to an arm injury.

    Houston-Carson saw some playing time at cornerback during the second half of Sunday's matchup after Xavier Crawford suffered a concussion. However, Houston-Carson sustained his arm injury shortly after taking over as the team's third cornerback. If he's unable to return, Kindle Vildor and Marqui Christian could see a slight uptick in playing time.
