Kelsey-Seybold to open new clinic in fast-growing suburb

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic plans to open a new clinic in Katy sometime in late 2015.

The new space will have room for 24 physicians. A clinic Kelsey-Seybold has in Cinco Ranch will remain open, said Khalaf. Kelsey-Seybold announced in February that it would double?

Looking ahead to Sunday’s matchup with Titans

1. Rookie Zach Mettenberger will be a different quarterback than the one the Texans beat up in the first game. In Sunday?s loss to Philadelphia, he completed 20-of-39 for 345 yards and two touchdowns. He threw one interception and had completions of 65 and 40 yards. 2. The Titans still can?t run the ball. They went into Sunday?s loss at Philadelphia ranked 26th in rushing, averaging 92.5 yards a game. Against the Eagles, they ran 19 times for 52 yards, a 2.7-yard average. The Texans limited them to 36 yards in the first game. 3. With quarterback Ryan Mallett suffering an injury to his pectoral muscle, expect Ryan Fitzpatrick to [...]

Texans report: Momentum proves crucial in loss to Bengals

The Texans allowed a 94-yard touchdown drive against the Bengals. It was the longest they?ve allowed this season. The drive ended with Andy Dalton throwing a 6-yard touchdown pass to Mohamed Sanu. The Bengals finished with 372 total yards. ?Obviously, we?re frustrated with the loss,? defensive end J.J. Watt said. ?It?s very tough. Losing sucks.? The Texans? only TD came on cornerback Johnathan Joseph?s 60-yard interception return. ?Anytime you put points on the board as a defense, that?s huge,? Watt said. ?Momentum, points ? it?s just a massive play for your team. And you want to capitalize and we didn?t.? Ground game a non-factor In their 23-7 victory at Cleveland, [...]

‘Crunchtime’ execution remains an issue for 5-6 Texans

Safety Danieal Manning said the Texans have proven this season they are tough enough to win but fail to execute during critical moments. Center Chris Myers said NFL games are often decided by a few plays and the Texans are too often on the losing end of game-deciding situations. Guard Brandon Brooks did his teammates one better. ?Let?s be honest: You?ve got to execute when it is crunchtime,? Brooks said. ?There?s no more, ?We?re this close.? We just didn?t get it done. We just have to get it done. When it comes to the four or five plays, we?ve got to make the four or five plays.? To dig themselves [...]

Andre Johnson calls Texans’ loss to Bengals “missed opportunity”

The Texans missed a major opportunity Sunday and their longest-tenured player knows it. ?The crazy thing about it is, even though we were never really able to get anything going, we were never out of the game,? wide receiver Andre Johnson said. ?It definitely feels like a missed opportunity. It was sitting right there for us.? A surprising win at Cleveland put the Texans at 5-5 and back in the playoff chase, with winnable games against Tennessee and Jacksonville following Cincinnati. By falling to the Bengals, many Texans said postgame that the team must now ?win out? to reach the postseason. ?It?s bad, man,? Johnson said. ?You hate to see [...]

Jadeveon Clowney admits injury not fully behind him

Jadeveon Clowney?s rookie season has been a disappointment. The No. 1 overall pick acknowledged Sunday he isn?t playing up to his own expectations and is still testing the limitations of his body while recovering from knee surgery. ?Somewhat,? said Clowney, when asked if he?s playing at the level he wants to. ?Some things are holding me back still but I?m just out here trying to do what I can do and have fun.? Clowney was then asked if he is making an impact during games. ?Sometimes,? Clowney said. ?I can only do my job, which is set the edge and get after the quarterback. Sometimes you get that and sometimes [...]

Obama aides: Immigration order could shelter 5 million

WASHINGTON - The highly contentious executive order President Obama is rolling out tonight will help up to 5 million immigrants who are in the U.S. illegally get work permits and pay taxes, while beefing up border security and cracking down on new illegal crossers, White House officials said. Giving the most detailed rendering so far of Obama's plan, the president's aides laid out a series of steps designed to shift enforcement priorities away from families with deep roots in the country and focus instead on recent arrivals and those with criminal records. Officials will remove the age cap, which was set at 31 years of age in 2012. [...] those seeking to stay will be required to have lived in the U.S. only since January 2010, a shift from the original cut-off date of January 2007. Tea party champion Ted Cruz, the junior Republican senator from Texas, also took to the Senate floor Thursday to rally opposition to Obama's executive action. [...] under the Secure Communities Program that works with local law enforcement, federal officials will be told to target those with criminal convictions, not merely those who have been arrested for crimes, administration officials said.
