Little, a 12-year veteran of the St. Louis Rams, is mulling retirement, according to the source, but he's also open to continuing his playing career if the right situation arises.

The Texans lost defensive end Connor Barwin for the season Sunday with a dislocated ankle and are looking for replacements.

"We've got to replace Connor for the season now, and anyone that's out there as a free agent is a possibility, so I think all doors are open and we'll continue to look at every possibility," Texans coach Gary Kubiak said at his news conference Monday.
