The Texans overcame a 17-point third-quarter deficit to win at Washington on Sunday, running their record to 2-0 and keeping a one-game lead in the AFC South and perhaps signaling they are developing into legitimate contenders.
Two Texans underwent MRIs Monday on their ankles. WR Andre Johnson has a mild sprain and is listed as day-to-day but is expected to start in Week Three. TE James Casey is expected to be out with an ankle sprain.
The Texans and QB Matt Schaub taught fantasy players a valuable lesson on Sunday: Don't read too much into one game.

Texans WR Andre Johnson will undergo an MRI on his right ankle this week. He left Sunday's game in the third quarter, only to return in the fourth period and haul in the game-tying TD pass.
Neil Rackers kicked a 35-yard field goal with 3:24 left in overtime, and Matt Schaub's 497 set a franchise record Sunday as the Houston Texans improved to 2-0 with a 30-27 win over the Washington Redskins.
The loss of promising reserve DE Connor Barwin hurts the Texans' depth, but the pass rush was no concern against Indianapolis because of the play of starting DEs Mario Williams and Antonio Smith.
To add depth to the defensive end position after losing Connor Barwin for the season, the Texans have signed DEs Adewale Ogunleye and Ryan Denney.
Texans RB Arian Foster's sudden emergence as Houston's lead back makes an already very good offense more balanced — and thus more dangerous.
Texans DE Connor Barwin crashed into a teammate in the first quarter of Week One and will miss the remainder of the season with a fracutred right ankle.
Arian Foster had generated plenty of hype leading up to Week One, but nobody could have seen this coming.
Arian Foster ran for a team-record 231 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead the Texans to a 34-24 victory over the Colts on Sunday.
Ten months after tearing his ACL against the Bills, Texans TE Owen Daniels will return to the gridiron in Sunday's season opener against the Colts.
