Joins practice squad

Auclair (knee) signed with the Titans' practice squad Monday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.

Analysis: Auclair was part of the Texans' final roster cuts, and he was dealing with a knee injury upon his release. Now healthy, Auclair has been able to find a new opportunity in Tennessee. With the Titans currently having four healthy tight ends on their active roster, he may have a difficult time finding himself on the 53-man roster.

Released by Houston

The Texans released Auclair (knee) on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

Analysis: Auclair didn't appear in any of the team's three preseason games due to a knee injury, but he wasn't released with an injury designation. The 6-foot-6 tight end has appeared in 56 career games but never been a receiving threat, so his fantasy upside is limited.

Sidelined for preseason finale

Auclair (knee) will not play in Thursday's preseason game against the 49ers, Aaron Wilson of reports.

Analysis: Auclair has been sidelined since July 29 and will not play in any preseason action. The Texans are currently shorthanded at tight end, as both Pharaoh Brown (hamstring) and Teagan Quitoriano (knee) are also sidelined.

Aug 25, 2022 5:07 PM EST

Expected to sit again

Auclair (knee) is not expected to play in the Texans' exhibition matchup with the Rams on Friday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

Analysis: Auclair has been nursing a right knee injury for the majority of training camp. The sixth-year tight end currently projects to be the team's No. 3 tight end and is competing for a spot on the final 53-man roster.

Not expected to suit up Saturday

Auclair (knee) is not anticipated to play during the Texans' preseason matchup against the Saints on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

Analysis: Auclair has been dealing with a right knee injury suffered during Houston's practice on July 29. In the sixth-year tight end's absence, fellow backups Teagan Quitoriano, Mason Schreck and Seth Green should see increased usage versus New Orleans.

Departs from practice with injury

Auclair (knee) left practice Friday with an ice bag on his right knee, Aaron Wilson of reports.

Analysis: The exact nature of the injury isn't clear at this time. Auclair will hope to return to the practice field as soon as possible, because after Houston added Teagan Quitoriano in the fifth round of this year's draft, his status heading into the regular season may depend on whether the Texans decide to keep four tight ends on their 53-man roster.

Jul 29, 2022 8:25 AM EST

Re-signs with Houston

The Texans re-signed Auclair on Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Auclair will return to Houston for a second straight season. The veteran tight end appeared in 16 contests during the 2021 campaign, across which span he secured all five of his targets for 47 yards and one score.

Catches lone target Week 18

Auclair caught his lone target for seven yards in Week 18's 28-25 loss to Tennessee.

Analysis: This was just Auclair's second catch since Week 9, and he finished the season with five catches on five targets for 47 yards and one score. He played all 16 games, sometimes starting, but the 28-year-old was used primarily as a blocker. He becomes an unrestricted free agent this offseason but could return on a modest contract to serve a similar role in 2022.

Returns from reserve/COVID-19 list

Auclair was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

Analysis: The 28-year-old was forced to miss Week 17 after being placed on the COVID list Dec. 31. Auclair has had a limited offensive impact this season, making only four catches for 40 yards and a touchdown over 15 games.

Jan 5, 2022 3:47 PM EST

Lands on reserve/COVID-19 list

Auclair (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.

Analysis: Auclair is likely in jeopardy of missing his first game of the season, though it's still possible that he is available for the Texans' Week 17 matchup against San Francisco. Though he consistently receives snaps, Auclair has earned only four targets this season.

Dec 31, 2021 1:17 PM EST

Untargeted in win

Auclair was not targeted in Sunday's 30-16 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: It was a typical game for Auclair, who played 31 percent of the offensive snaps, which is right at his season average of 31.5 percent, and he went untargeted for the For the 11th time in 14 games. There's little chance the Texans get him more involved over the final few weeks, as they are focused on developing rookie Brevin Jordan.

Dec 20, 2021 4:28 AM EST

Has red-zone target in loss

Auclair caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 33-13 loss to Seattle.

Analysis: Auclair was targeted in the red zone, his second such target of the season, but he stopped from reaching the end zone. He's caught four of four targets for 40 yards with one touchdown in 2021. If any of the players in the tight end mix have any fantasy worth, it's rookie Brevin Jordan who caught his third touchdown of the season and was targeted seven times Sunday.

Dec 13, 2021 5:23 AM EST

Leads tight ends in loss

Auclair caught two of two targets for 23 yards and led all tight ends with 36 snaps in Sunday's 17-9 loss to Miami.

Analysis: That was a season-high snap count for Auclair, who stepped into the Pharaoh Brown (thigh) role. Of the three healthy tight ends, Auclair is the best blocker, which should keep him on the field and active while Brown is out. The targets/catches were his first since Week 5.

Nov 8, 2021 5:13 AM EST

Surprises with TD

Auclair caught his lone target for 11 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-22 to the Patriots.

Analysis: Auclair, who has played all five games because of his blocking ability, was a target for the first time in 2021. This was his first career touchdown. Houston's quarterback situation isn't conducive to producing much fantasy value for receivers, so Auclair shouldn't be viewed as a worthy addition to any fantasy lineup. In addition to that, he is behind both Jordan Akins and Pharaoh Brown in terms of snaps and targets.

Oct 11, 2021 7:04 AM EST

Elevated to active roster

The Texans promoted Auclair to their active roster Tuesday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Auclair has been elevated for both games this season and provided value as a stout run-blocking tight end. With Tyrod Taylor and Nico Collins on IR, he will likely have a spot on the active roster for the next few weeks.

Sep 21, 2021 1:35 PM EST

Back to practice squad

Auclair (eye) has reverted back to the Texans' practice squad, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: Auclair got knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Browns after suffering an eye injury. He played in just two offensive snaps without recording any stats before exiting.

Sep 20, 2021 6:38 PM EST

Won't come back Sunday

Auclair (eye) has been declared out of Sunday's game against the Browns.

Analysis: Auclair's absence leaves the Texans tight end group thin. It's down to Pharaoh Brown and Jordan Akins for the rest of the contest.

Sep 19, 2021 12:21 PM EST

Questionable to return Sunday

Auclair (eye) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Browns.

Analysis: Auclair has been elevated from the practice squad before each of the first two games of the season. He hasn't recorded a catch in his limited action as he has mostly been relegated to blocking duties. The severity of the injury is uncertain.

Sep 19, 2021 12:08 PM EST

Moved up again

Auclair was elevated from the practice squad Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: Auclair surprisingly was listed as the team's starting tight end Week 1 alongside Pharaoh Brown. No one tight end actually recorded a catch in that contest as the aforementioned duo were simply relegated to blocking duties. That might change with a difficult Week 2 matchup against the Browns on tap.
