Jordan (knee) has been downgraded to out for the remainder of Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Colts.
Analysis: Jordan will finish out the remainder of Sunday's game off the field, effectively ending his 2022 campaign. With the nature and severity of this knee issue still unclear, it will be worth monitoring his injury status heading into this upcoming offseason since Houston is not in contention for a playoff spot. In the short term, Jordan Akins and Teagan Quitoriano will serve as Houston's only available tight ends for the remainder of this Week 18 contest.

Jordan is questionable tor return to Sunday's game against the Colts with a knee injury.
Analysis: Jordan did not record a target before exiting in the first half, though it's unclear when or how this injury first arose. The second-year tight end caught at least one pass in each of the Texans' previous three contests. With fellow backup O.J. Howard (hip) already inactive, Teagan Quitoriano could be in line for increased usage alongside top tight end Jordan Akins for the time being.
Jan 8, 2023 11:08 AM EST
Jordan caught one of three targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 31-3 loss to Jacksonville in Week 17.
Analysis: Jordan was more involved with Teagan Quitoriano (knee) inactive, but there wasn't much happening in the passing attack, which was held to under 200 passing yards for the eighth time. He entered the game with just three targets over the previous three weeks.
Jan 2, 2023 8:03 AM EST
Jordan caught both of his targets for 21 yards in Saturday's 19-14 win over Tennessee in Week 16.
Analysis: Jordan, who played just five snaps the previous week, was on the field for 36 snaps after Teagan Quitoriano left with a knee injury. Houston had made O.J. Howard inactive, which resulted Jordan receiving his most playing time since Week 9.
Dec 26, 2022 7:41 AM EST
Jordan caught his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 30-24 overtime loss to the Chiefs.
Analysis: Houston tight ends were prominent in the loss with six red-zone targets and two touchdowns, but Jordan was not part of it. He played just five snaps and has total of 42 over the last three games since returning from a three-week stint as a healthy scratch. Jordan held much promise entering the season after being a productive receiver over the second half of 2021, but he doesn't fit in offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton's scheme, which relies on blocking tight ends to enable an effective rushing attack.
Dec 19, 2022 5:48 AM EST
Jordan caught four of five targets for 46 yards in Sunday's 27-14 loss to Cleveland in Week 13.
Analysis: Week 13 marked the first time in four weeks that Jordan was part of the active roster. After being a healthy inactive for three weeks, Jordan played 24 snaps and was heavily involved as a target. O.J. Howard was made inactive, clearing the way for Jordan's return. While it remains uncertain why Jordan was inactive the previous three weeks, it's assumed his failings as a blocker played a role in the decision.
Dec 5, 2022 6:41 AM EST
Jordan (coach's decision) was inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins in Week 12.
Analysis: This was the third straight healthy inactive for Jordan, who has a disappointing six catches and 32 yards in 2022 after showing promise during the second half of his rookie 2021 season. Absent a steady quarterback, Houston offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton wants to run the football and places value on a blocking tight end, which Jordan has not been since entering the NFL.
Nov 28, 2022 5:45 AM EST
Jordan (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Commanders, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Analysis: Jordan is now in line to miss his second consecutive contest due to a coach's decision. In his absence, Jordan Akins, O.J. Howard and Teagan Quitoriano are slated to handle Houston's tight end duties Sunday versus Washington.
Nov 20, 2022 9:11 AM EST
Jordan (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Analysis: Despite leading all Texans tight ends in the Week 9 loss to the Eagles by playing 63 percent of the snaps on offense, Jordan will find himself out of the game plan entirely Sunday as a healthy inactive. The second-year player hasn't lived up to his billing as the Texans' best pass-catching tight end since he made his return to the lineup Week 7 after a three-game absence due to an ankle sprain. In those three contests, Jordan mustered a measly 3-24-0 receiving line on 11 targets. He now looks to have been pushed out of the tight-end rotation by rookie Teagan Quitoriano, who scored a touchdown on his lone reception in his NFL debut last week.
Nov 13, 2022 8:47 AM EST
Jordan caught one of two targets for five yards in Thursday's 29-17 loss to Philadelphia in Week 9.
Analysis: Jordan's disappointing season rolls on. After a strong second half during his rookie 2021 season, Jordan was seen as a key target for quarterback Davis Mills this season, but the former Miami Hurricane has just six catches on 17 targets for 32 yards in five games.
Nov 4, 2022 5:45 AM EST
Jordan caught two of four targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Titans.
Analysis: No Texan other than Brandon Cooks did much through the air in this one, and while Jordan led the tight end group in targets, O.J. Howard (2-24 on three targets) and Jordan Akins (1-5 on two targets) were nearly as involved. Even rookie fullback Troy Hairston (2-7 on two targets), who came into the game with only one career catch, got in on the action. Jordan remains atop the depth chart, but the three-way split puts a firm ceiling on the fantasy value of all Houston's tight ends, even in favorable matchups.
Oct 30, 2022 8:31 PM EST
Jordan failed to catch any of four targets and played 30 snaps (46 percent) in Sunday's 38-20 loss to Las Vegas in Week 7.
Analysis: Jordan returned from an ankle injury to lead the tight ends in snaps, but he and quarterback Davis Mills did not mesh well. Instead, it was Jordan Akins, back from exile, that was the biggest threat. He led the position group with three catches (four targets) for 68 yards. Long term, Jordan is considered the primary receiving threat, so it may just be a matter of getting over this injury.
Oct 24, 2022 6:35 AM EST
Jordan (ankle) is active for Sunday's Week 7 clash against the Raiders, Drew Dougherty of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The second-year tight end will therefore be active for the first time since Week 2 after finally overcoming his ankle issue. His return will make the Texans' tight end picture even murkier, as O.J. Howard and Jordan Akins remain on hand as well for snaps at the position.
Oct 23, 2022 11:46 AM EST
Jordan (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Las Vegas.
Analysis: Jordan has been tending to an ankle issue since Week 2 prep and hasn't played since that game in Denver, but he may be poised for a return after capping this week with back-to-back full practices. His status will be confirmed, one way or another, about 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff, and if Jordan is active he'll have to contend for targets with fellow tight ends O.J. Howard and Jordan Akins.
Oct 21, 2022 2:42 PM EST
Jordan (ankle) practiced fully Thursday.
Analysis: Jordan, who last suited up in Week 2, was limited Wednesday, but his return to a full session Thursday puts the tight end on track to suit up Sunday against the Raiders. Upon his looming return to action, Jordan looks like a hit-or-miss fantasy option though, with O.J. Howard and Jordan Akins also in the Texans' TE mix.
Oct 20, 2022 3:22 PM EST
Jordan (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Analysis: Jordan missed three straight contests leading up to Houston's Week 6 bye, but he returned to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday. Given his lengthy absence, he'll likely have to log at least one full practice before he returns to game action. Regardless, when available, he figures to reclaim his as the Texans' top tight end.
Oct 19, 2022 2:53 PM EST
Jordan (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Analysis: With Jordan out again, look for O.J. Howard and Jordan Akins (a likely practice squad elevation) to lead the Texans' tight end corps against Jacksonville. That's an arrangement that led to Howard catching two of his five targets for 27 yards and Akins catching both of his targets for 33 yards in last weekend's 34-24 loss to the Chargers.
Oct 7, 2022 12:48 PM EST
Jordan (ankle) isn't practicing Thursday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Analysis: Jordan hasn't practiced since tweaking his ankle in the Texans' 16-9 loss to the Broncos in Week 2 and looks to be trending toward a third consecutive absence Sunday in Jacksonville. Before the Texans formally decide on his status for the weekend, they'll wait and see if Jordan can fit in any on-field work Friday. With Pharaoh Brown having since been released and Jordan looking unlikely to be available Week 5, O.J. Howard and Jordan Akins look set to split reps at tight end against the Jaguars.
Oct 6, 2022 6:27 AM EST
Jordan (ankle) is not participating in Wednesday's practice, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
Analysis: Jordan is still considered day-to-day, but he's starting off a third straight week as a non-participant in practice. His absence allowed O.J. Howard to operate as Houston's top tight end Week 4, while the team released Pharaoh Brown (hip/shoulder) on Tuesday.
Oct 5, 2022 7:44 AM EST
Jordan (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Chargers.
Analysis: Following a second consecutive week in which he was unable to practice due to an ankle injury, Jordan will miss another game. Fellow tight end Pharaoh Brown (hip/shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday, but he seems likely to play after following an FP/FP/LP practice regimen. Aside from Brown, O.J. Howard is the other TE on the Texans' active roster.
