  • Texans' Jimmie Ward: Placed on IR

    Ward (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve by the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Ward suffered the quadriceps injury in Sunday's loss to the Browns and he'll now be forced to miss the remainder of the regular season with a shot at returning if Houston advances deep into the postseason. In his place, Adrian Amos or DeAndre Houston-Carson will take over at starting strong safety, beginning in Week 17 against the Titans.

  • Texans' Jimmie Ward: Won't return versus Cleveland

    Ward (quadriceps) has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Browns.

    Ward left in the first half after sustaining a quadriceps injury and had one tackle before his exit. It's the second week in a row that Ward has been taken out of a game after leaving last week's contest with a concussion. DeAndre Houston-Carson will fill in at strong safety alongside free safety Jalen Pitre for the rest of Sunday's game.

  • Texans' Jimmie Ward: Questionable to return

    Ward is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Browns with a quad injury.

    The safety made one tackle before exiting. Ward has 50 tackles, three passes defensed, an interception and a forced fumble in 2023. DeAndre Houston-Carson should see more playing time in his absence.

  • Texans' Jimmie Ward: Good to go versus Cleveland

    Ward (concussion) carries no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Browns.

    Ward was a full participant in Thursday's practice and has cleared the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. He sustained the concussion in Week 15 against the Titans but will not miss any time. Ward has 49 tackles (32 solo), one interception and one forced fumble in nine games this season.

  • Texans' Jimmie Ward: Returns to practice

  • Texans' Jimmie Ward: Enters concussion protocol

    Ward (concussion) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Titans.

  • Texans' Jimmie Ward: Cleared to face Jets

    Ward (shoulder) was a full participant in Friday's practice and does not carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Jets.

    Ward sustained a shoulder injury in the Texans' Week 13 win over the Broncos. He upgraded his participation in practice throughout the week, culminating in a full session Friday, and will suit up Sunday. Ward had the crucial game-sealing interception off Russell Wilson last Sunday, and he'll look to provide further trouble for Jets quarterback Zach Wilson in Week 14.

  • Texans' Jimmie Ward: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Ward (shoulder) did not participate in Houston's practice Wednesday.

    Ward came up with a huge interception in the end zone with less than 20 seconds remaining to help preserve the Texans' win this past Sunday versus Denver, but he came out of the contest with a shoulder injury. Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports that scans indicated that the safety's shoulder "checked out fine" and that he's likely dealing with "just a bruise," so there appears to be a good chance that he'll be able to play this Sunday against the Jets. However, it bears watching Houston's injury report the rest of this week, as Ward may need to be a full participant in at least one practice session to avoid going into the weekend with an injury designation.

  • Texans' Jimmie Ward: Makes game-saving pick

    Ward recorded six tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 22-17 win versus the Broncos.

    The interception was the first of the season for Ward, and it could not have come at a better time for Houston. With less than 20 seconds to play, Russell Wilson escaped from blind-side pressure to air out a jump ball in the direction of six-foot-six tight end Lucas Krull in the end zone, but the five-foot-eleven Ward went airborne and came down with it to preserve the Texans' lead and the win. Despite the Week 13 heroics, there will be better IDP options in Week 14 when the Texans travel to face the Jets.
