T.J. Yates played admirably as the Texans’ starting QB late last season, but coach Gary Kubiak said the second-year pro still must battle Matt Leinart to be Matt Schaub‘s backup in 2012.

Time now for a look at the top storylines for fantasy football on a Tuesday,
Texans coach Gary Kubiak assured fantasy enthusiasts when he said that WR Dre Johnson was going to miss “some time.” And by assuring us, I mean he could not have been more vague. Oh well, hopefully Dre will start tweeting out MRI photos like his teammate Arian Foster did.
Arian Foster is one step closer to facing the Dolphins on Sunday. Texans coach Gary Kubiak told reporters that Foster — who has become a hit with the nation’s youth — looked “much better” in Thursday’s practice.
After he left the fantasy football world twisting in the wind in Week 1, Arian Foster appears primed for his first regular-season action Sunday when the Texans visit the Dolphins.
What better way to conclude the NFL Coaches USO Tour than by spending the Fourth of July with the troops. Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, Texans coach Gary Kubiak, former NFL coach and current NFL Network analyst Jim Mora Jr. and former Saints and Colts coach Jim Mora Sr. had an opportunity to do just that Monday in Iraq.

This is the first USO tour for the group, who join the growing list of NFL coaches to travel overseas on USO entertainment tours.

Congratulations to Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Hines Ward – your newest “Dancing With the Stars” champion. Unbelievably, that makes not one but two players who can boast a DWTS trophy and a Super Bowl MVP trophy on their mantel.

Now that Texans coach Gary Kubiak has agreed to be in studio Tuesday for “NFL Total Access” on NFL Network, he must be thrilled about star WR Andre Johnson‘s recent comments about trying to recruit free-agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha.

And now for a few thoughts, observations and highlights as we wrap up Day 2 of the NFL Scouting Combine.

NFL Network insiders Jason La Canfora and Michael Lombardi doubled up on the Around the League desk on Wednesday, taking a look at coaches considered to be on the hot seat.
Matt Schaub is expected to start for the Texans in Week 11, but he shouldn’t be starting on your fantasy team.
The value of Texans WR Andre Johnson has taken a hit this week because of matchup against Jets CB Darrelle Revis. Dre’s value will plummet like the elevator car on Disney’s Hollywood Tower of Terror if the Texans have to turn to QBs Dan Orlovsky or Matt Leinart who has been listed as the team’s emergency quarterback for most of the season.
