Cullen Gillaspia: Full practice Thursday

Gillaspia (hamstring) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Gillaspia was upgraded Thursday after he was limited during Wednesday's practice. The 25-year-old missed last week's game with the hamstring issue, however, he's expected to play as he did in Weeks 2 and 3. Expect Gillaspia to assume his normal starting fullback role for Week 5 against Jacksonville.

Cullen Gillaspia: Won't suit up against Vikings

Gillaspia (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against Minnesota.

Analysis: The 25-year-old fullback sat out Houston's season-opening loss to Kansas City because of a hamstring issue, though he was able to take the field Weeks 2 and 3, garnering 29 combined special-teams snaps and one offensive snap. After logging limited practice participation throughout the week, Gillaspia seemingly did not show enough to the Texans' training staff to be made active for Sunday's matchup between 0-3 teams.

Cullen Gillaspia: Carries questionable tag

Gillaspia (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Vikings.

Analysis: Gillaspia was limited in practice all week, so he has a chance to play Sunday. However, the fullback missed the season opener due to a hamstring injury, so the Texans could exercise caution to avoid aggravating the injury again.

Cullen Gillaspia: Back at it again

Gillaspia (concussion) was upgraded from limited to full practice participation between Wednesday and Thursday, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The 2019 seventh-round draft choice was forced to exit Sunday's loss to the Ravens in order to be evaluated for a concussion, but so far this week he is trending in the right direction. Gillaspia has been on the field for 13 combined offensive plays across 17 career regular-season appearances, though he has been an integral special-teams piece for the Texans, playing at least 54 percent of the snaps in every game last year. If fully ready to go, Gillaspia will be back in game action Sunday against the Steelers.

Cullen Gillaspia: Questionable to return Sunday

Gillaspia is being evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Analysis: If Gillaspia is confirmed to have suffered a concussion he'll be required to fully clear the league's five-step protocol for brain injuries before retaking the field, which would rule him out for the remainder of Sunday's action.

Cullen Gillaspia: Ready to rock

Gillaspia (hamstring) was a full participant for Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Gillaspia was inactive while dealing with the hamstring injury for Thursday's opener against Kansas City. Now healthy, the Texas A&M product is expected to be deployed as the team's full back for Week 2, hoping to open some holes for starter David Johnson against Baltimore.

Cullen Gillaspia: Won't play Thursday

Gillaspia (hamstring) is inactive for Thursday's season opener against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Gillaspia put together a trio of limited practices this week, and the hamstring injury that hampered him throughout training camp will now force him to sit out Week 1. He'll work to get healthy enough to take the field Sept. 20 against Baltimore.

Cullen Gillaspia: Questionable for Week 1

Gillaspia (hamstring) is officially questionable for Thursday's season opener against the Chiefs.

Analysis: Gillaspia was limited in practice Monday and Tuesday before being handed another limited designation in Wednesday's estimation of participation had the Texans held a practice. The fullback has battled a hamstring injury throughout camp, though he was at least able to log limited practice sessions throughout the week.

Cullen Gillaspia: Back at practice

Gillaspia (hamstring) returned to practice Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Gillaspia missed much of training camp due to a sore hamstring, but he's managed to recover ahead of Sept. 10's season-opener against the Chiefs. The 2019 seventh-round pick is the only fullback on Houston's roster.

Cullen Gillaspia: Battling minor injury

Gillaspia didn't practice Tuesday due to a sore hamstring, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Head coach Bill O'Brien didn't sound too concerned when he talked to the press, and with a different offseason, O'Brien said some players will take longer to ramp up to full speed. Therefore, Gillaspia shouldn't spend much time on the sidelines. Gillaspia is the only fullback on the Texans' roster, so his job security likely won't be majorly impacted by this injury.
