Nix (knee) was activated off the Texans' PUP list Tuesday.

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.
Nix (knee) underwent arthroscopic knee surgery during the offseason, Deepi Sidhu of the team's official website reports.

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.
Nix (knee) was placed on the PUP list Monday, Fox 26 in Houston reports.
