News: Melvin replaced an injured Asa Jackson (knee) at right cornerback during Sunday's win over the Jaguars.
Impact: Melvin, a 2013 UDFA, played surprisingly well in his first action of the season. With Jackson's knee injury appearing to be fairly serious, Melvin will likely start at right cornerback in Week 16 against the Texans. Melvin could be a sneaky IDP option, as he offers excellent size for the position and will likely be tested by a Houston team that is down to its third quarterback.
