Texans' Corey Liuget: Elevates from practice squad
The Texans elevated Liuget to the active roster Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Liuget has been on the Texans' practice squad for over a month, and he'll make his 2020 debut. The veteran defensive tackle played 10 games last season between the Bills and the Raiders, recording 13 tackles and a sack while serving as a backup. He'll likely only log a handful of snaps Sunday against the Jaguars because Brandon Dunn and Ross Blacklock are already rostered.... See More ... See Less
Corey Liuget: Inks practice squad deal
The Texans signed Liuget to the practice squad Monday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 KRIV reports.
A 2011 first-round pick by the Chargers, Liuget didn't sign with a team to start the 2020 season but will look to climb the Texans' depth chart. He played 10 games last season between the Bills and Raiders, recording 13 tackles and a sack over 180 defensive snaps.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Corey Liuget: Fills gap for Buffalo
Liuget finished the 2019 season with 13 tackles and a sack across 10 regular-season games for the Bills and Raiders.
Liuget, a veteran first-rounder (2011), was waived by Oakland in late October and was snapped up by the Bills pretty quickly, where he served a depth interior role after a normally stout Buffalo defense had a few hiccups against the run. With Harrison Phillips expected to be healthy next season, there's some uncertainty regarding Liuget's status with the team, though if the Bills are unable to re-sign Jordan Phillips, Liuget's chances of a return would be that much greater. While Liuget's stats aren't exactly eye-popping, he still has the ability to plug the run capably.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Corey Liuget: Will play Saturday

Bills' Corey Liuget: Officially questionable
Liuget (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Saturday's contest against the Patriots.

Bills' Corey Liuget: Limited for Wednesday's practice
Liuget (knee), who missed Sunday's win over Pittsburgh, was able to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The Buffalo defense played incredibly without one of its key run stuffers in the win, but at some point Liuget's services will be needed if the Bills are going to make a playoff run. The veteran is more of a depth piece at this stage of his career, but he's been a big boost to the Bills solving some of their prior run defense issues.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Corey Liuget: Sitting out SNF
Liuget (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
Despite working in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday, Liuget will miss his fifth game of the season. The veteran defensive tackle isn't on fantasy radars in IDP leagues, as he's recorded just seven tackles and a sack over eight games. Rookie Ed Oliver stands to see an uptick in snaps in a reserve role behind Star Lotulelei and Jordan Phillips.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Corey Liuget: Limited again Friday
Liuget (knee) was limited for the second straight day Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh.
We'd have to lean toward him playing, as the interior lineman has been able to practice on some level for two straight days after missing Wednesday's session. This is expected to be a tight game between two good defenses, so Liuget's availability to help stop Pittsburgh's running game could end up being a key factor in the contest.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Corey Liuget: Improves to limited
Liuget (knee) was listed as limited for Thursday's practice after sitting out Wednesday's session entirely, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The big interior lineman is trending in the right direction and is apparently headed for a questionable or better status ahead of Sunday's primetime matchup against the Steelers. Liuget's issue has also been clarified as a knee injury instead of the original lower-body tag.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Corey Liuget: Misses Wednesday's practice
Liuget sat out Wednesday's practice due to a lower-body injury, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
As an interior plugger, Liuget doesn't accrue much in the way of stats, but the midseason signee has really helped shore up the team's run defense issues as a rotational guy, enough that a potential absence would have a slight effect on the team as it squares off against the Steelers on Sunday Night Football....

Bills' Corey Liuget: Signs with Buffalo
Buffalo signed Liuget on Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The team placed Maurice Alexander on injured reserve, so the extra spot was used to continue beefing up the middle of the defense, which has been gashed at times in recent weeks. Liuget brings plenty of experience as a 2011 first-rounder that's now on his fourth team.... See More ... See Less
Corey Liuget: Parts ways with Oakland
Liuget was waived by the Raiders on Wednesday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
Liuget signed with the Raiders in August but played in only three games for the team. The veteran defensive tackle spent the first eight years of his career with the Chargers but is now again looking for a new team.... See More ... See Less
Raiders' Corey Liuget: Not on injury report
Liuget (knee) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Raiders' Corey Liuget: Inactive for road clash
Liuget (knee) won't play in Sunday's road contest against the Vikings.
Liuget was a limited participant in Friday's practice and won't be able to give it a go for game action. The veteran has yet to suit up for game action in 2019, so his absence likely won't affect the defense too much.... See More ... See Less
