  • Texans' Steven Sims: Diagnosed with concussion

    Sims suffered a concussion in Saturday's divisional-round loss to Baltimore, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Sims scored the only touchdown of the game for Houston, returning a punt 67 yards for a score in the second quarter. He didn't record any targets in the passing game, however, and suffered a concussion during the contest. With the Texans eliminated from the postseason, Sims will look to get well as he heads into the offseason as a free agent.

  • Texans' Steven Sims: Signed from Texans' practice squad

    Sims was signed to the Texans' active roster Tuesday.

    Sims had been on Houston's practice squad, but he has become a full-fledged member of the team ahead of Saturday's divisional round game against the Ravens. The former Washington and Pittsburgh wide receiver appeared in three games for the Texans during the regular season. Sims could see some opportunities on offense with Noah Brown (shoulder) on IR, but he's likely to be deployed primarily as a return man on special teams.

  • Steven Sims: Returns to practice squad

    Sims reverted to the Texans' practice squad Monday.

    Sims was elevated to the active roster ahead of the team's Week 15 overtime win over the Titans, operating mostly as a special-teams option. He turned three kick returns into 71 yards while also returning two punts for 33 yards. Sims also played seven offensive snaps, catching one pass for no gain and gaining a yard on his only carry. The wide receiver's biggest impact may have come when he recovered a fumble by quarterback Case Keenum. Sims could be asked to return to the active roster again in Week 16 if Nico Collins (calf) is unavailable versus the Browns.

  • Texans' Steven Sims: Elevated for Week 15

    The Texans elevated Sims from the practice squad Saturday.

    This is Sims' first elevation since Week 12, but it's his third overall this season, meaning Houston will need to sign him to the active roster in order for him to suit up for the team after Week 15. In his two contests so far this season, the fifth-year wideout has tallied two catches on two targets for 25 yards. Sims could see more opportunity than usual Sunday if Nico Collins (calf) and/or Noah Brown (knee) aren't able to suit up.

    Sims saw playing time on both offense and special teams Sunday and recorded a fair catch his lone punt-return opportunity. The 26-year-old has appeared in two games this season for Houston and is now eligible to be elevated just once more before he'd have to be signed to the active roster.

  • Texans' Steven Sims: Promoted from practice squad

    The Texans elevated Sims to the active roster Saturday.

    This is the second time this season that Sims has been elevated. He was active in Week 11 against the Cardinals, when he caught both of his targets for 25 yards while returning two punts for 16 yards. Sims will provide wide receiver depth due to Noah Brown (knee) being ruled out for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Jaguars.

  • Steven Sims: Reverts to practice squad

    Sims reverted to Houston's practice squad Monday.

    Sims saw time on both offense and special teams during Sunday's win versus the Cardinals and caught both of his targets for 25 yards, in addition to returning two punts for 16 yards. The 26-year-old could get another opportunity to be called up for the team's upcoming matchup against the Jaguars, as Noah Brown is still dealing with a knee injury.

  • Texans' Steven Sims: Two targets in win

    Sims caught both of his targets for 25 yards and returned two punts for 16 yards in Sunday's 21-16 win over Arizona in Week 11.

    Sims made his season debut for the Texans, who were without Noah Brown (knee) , and was targeted on both his offensive snaps. He was one of six active wide receivers, as Houston dressed just two tight ends. Sims, who had one of six C.J. Stroud pass completions that went for more than 20 yards, would need several injuries to move into a position where he could be a fantasy contributor.

    Sims was cut by the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    The Steelers didn't tender an offer to Sims as a restricted free agent Wednesday, Alan Saunders of PittsburghSportsNow.com reports.

    Sims played 284 offensive snaps last season, seeing his role grow following the Chase Claypool trade, but he finished the year with just 14 catches for 104 scoreless yards. He'll look to compete for a job on some other team's roster this summer.
