Jordan caught three of four targets for 64 yards in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Broncos in Week 13.
Jordan elevated to the top of the tight end depth chart with Dalton Schultz (hamstring) sidelined and played a season-high 51 snaps. His pass-catching ability has never been questioned, but Jordan does not provide the run-blocking proficiency that a team may need from the position. Depending on Schultz's status for Week 14 against the Jets, Jordan could get more opportunities next week. Additionally, the season-ending injury to Tank Dell (leg) could lead to more targets even if Schultz is ready to go next week.
Jordan is in line for an elevated workload Sunday against the Broncos with Dalton Schultz (hamstring) ruled out for that contest, Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Schultz wasn't able to practice this week due to a hamstring injury, and with his status now confirmed for Week 13 action, Jordan and Eric Saubert figure to earn increased snap counts in the short term. Through eight appearances this season, Jordan has hauled in six of seven targets for 60 yards and one touchdown, so the bigger workload may not result in added attention from quarterback C.J. Stroud. Still, Saubert has no catches to his name in three games with the Texans in 2023, meaning Jordan likely is the better bet among the two to make a mark in the box score.
Jordan was not targeted over 15 offensive snaps in Sunday's 21-16 win over the Cardinals.
Jordan returned to action after missing three games due to a foot injury. He was one of two active tight ends, but Dalton Schultz is the only tight end that matters. Schultz, who scored his fifth touchdown Sunday, is third on the team in targets with 59 and has nearly seven times more targets than the rest of the position group combined.
Jordan (foot) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
The third-year tight end out of Miami was able to log a full practice Friday after recording a DNP on Wednesday, and it now seems as if he's been able to move past the foot issue that's held him out of the Texans' last three games. Jordan has played a minimal role in Houston's offense thus far, catching all five of his targets for 51 yards and one touchdown.
Jordan (foot) practiced Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
It's not clear whether Jordan logged a limited or full practice, but either way, it's an upgrade from his DNP on Wednesday. The 23-year-old has been out of action since Week 6, but assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks it's possible he is trending in the right direction to suit up Sunday against the Cardinals.
Jordan (foot) did not participate at practice Wednesday.
After missing the Texans' last three games tending to a foot injury, Jordan is now missing Houston's first practice of the new week. Unless he's able to return to practice Thursday or Friday, he'll likely be sidelined in Week 11.
Jordan (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 10 game against the Bengals.
This will be Jordan's third consecutive missed game. He has just five catches for 51 yards and one touchdown on the season. Dalton Schultz and Eric Saubert will again handle tight end duties this week.
Jordan (foot) did not participate in Thursday's practice, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.
The 23-year-old tight end missed his second consecutive practice Thursday, and it seems increasingly likely that he'll be out for the second game in a row this Sunday. Jordan has seen a limited role in Houston's offense through six appearances this season, recording 51 yards on only five receptions.

It's not all bad news for Jordan, whose condition has reportedly improved significantly recently. Even still, if he can't return to practice Thursday or Friday, he'll probably be inactive again come Sunday at Cincinnati.
