Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The knee injury has grounded Nix's professional career to this point, but the Texans aren't closing the door on him being a key part of their defensive line as a rookie. Any chances he may have had at winning the starting nose tackle job, however, may have been compromised due to his extended absence.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Nix, a third-round draft pick out of Notre Dame, is on the preseason PUP list due to a knee injury. However, it was previously unreported that he had undergone surgery, something that's a bit more concerning in light of the fact that his final college season ended with a torn meniscus. In any case, Nix was once viewed as a potential first-round draft pick, and he could still compete for a key role in the defensive-line rotation once he's healthy.

His primary competition appears to be veteran Jerrell Powe, who played for defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel when the two were in Kansas City. Nix suffered a knee injury during organized team activities and got a late start on training camp.
