Update on Taylor, favorite Texans memory and more | Dear Drew

Got a question about the Texans? Life in general? Drew Dougherty's your guy. He's been with the Texans since 2009 and is chock full of meaningful, as well as generally useless, information. Fire away by clicking HERE!

Richard Green: Dear Drew, How is Tyrod Taylor doing with his rehab?
DD: Taylor's continuing to rehab his hamstring injury. The rehab is going well, but there's not a concrete timetable on when he'll actually return. We should know more next week. In the meanwhile, he's in the building doing rehab and also the mental work to prep for games.

Tommy Barkley: Dear Drew, What is your favorite moment in Texans history?
DD: The Sunday in December of 2011 when the Texans clinched the AFC South title at Cincinnati. The win over the Bengals had the thrilling comeback and the final drive, and then the team went bananas in the locker room once the Saints beat the Titans to sew up the division crown. That plane ride home was awesome, and then there were a few thousand fans that met the team at NRG Stadium that evening when they returned home. It was a fun day during a very fun year.

Don Sweeney: Dear Drew, What should we take with our first-round pick in the draft?
DD: We're still a long way off from the NFL Draft, which is April 28, 2022. Position-wise, taking the very best player available at any spot is the sound choice. The Texans really can't go wrong upgrading talent across the board, and it wouldn't surprise me to see them go first with someone on either the offensive line or in the defensive front seven or at cornerback. Right now, Houston has nine picks next April, with one in every round except for the fifth, two apiece in the third round, and then three in the sixth round.

Jacqueline Pellegrino: Dear Drew, Do you think the Texans will get more rushing yards or passing yards against the Bills?
DD: Passing, for sure. Even when they run the ball well, they still throw for more yards.

Jerry Gamble: Dear Drew, Why didn't the Texans sign Cam Newton?
DD: Because they like Taylor and Davis Mills more, Jerry. Taylor was doing a fine job running the show when he played, and the Texans have been impressed with Mills' progress so far. Mills was solid in his debut as a starter, and Head Coach David Culley said a lot more will be on Mills' plate this week in Buffalo.
