  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Sitting out Sunday

    The Texans have ruled Perryman (hand) out for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

    Perryman failed to practice in any capacity this week and will miss a second straight game as a result. Henry To'oTo'o, who recorded 10 tackles in the Week 3 win over Jacksonville, is expected to pick up another start at middle linebacker in Perryman's stead.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Perryman (hand/wrist) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

    Perryman missed last week's upset win over the Jaguars. He played 100 percent of the defensive snaps in Week 2 against the Colts, so it's unclear when he was actually injured. Perryman has 18 tackles through two contests. Christian Harris, Blake Cashman and Henry To'oTo'o started at linebacker for Houston last week.

    Perryman (hand) is listed as out for Sunday's game at the Jaguars.

    After missing practice all week with a hand injury, Perryman will sit out in Week 3. Cory Littleton is likely to see increased work in his absence, and it's not clear how long it will take before Perryman is ready to play again.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Cleared from injury report

    Perryman (ankle) was able to log a full practice Thursday.

    Perryman was limited in practice Wednesday, but any concerns of him potentially missing Sunday's game against the Colts are eliminated for the time being. The veteran linebacker logged double-digit tackles in Week 1 and will work to post another productive outing for Week 2.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Limited participant in practice

    Perryman (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.

    Perryman popped up on the injury report with an ankle injury after logging 11 tackles (six solo) during the team's Week 1 loss to the Ravens. If the 30-year-old is unable to play versus the Colts on Sunday, the Texans will likely turn to Henry To'oTo'o to start at middle linebacker.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Double-digit tackles in loss

    Perryman recorded 11 tackles in Sunday's 25-9 loss at Baltimore.

    Perryman led Houston linebackers in snaps with 56 and made good on ample opportunities to defend the run in what was eventually a 16-point loss. In Week 2, the Texans are set to play host to Indianapolis, which should also be relatively reliant on its ground game.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Picks off Tua in preseason loss

    Perryman recorded four tackles and an interception in Saturday's preseason loss to Miami.

    Perryman continued his strong preseason play when he picked off Tua Tagovailoa on the first play from scrimmage, setting up Houston inside the Dolphins' 10. The Texans were thwarted on downs. Perryman had a sack and four tackles in last week's preseason opener against New England.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Logs sack Thursday

    Perryman had four tackles and one sack in Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Returns to practice Tuesday

    Perryman (shoulder) participated Tuesday at OTAs, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Perryman wasn't practicing to start OTAs while rehabbing from offseason labrum surgery, but he appears to be in the final stages of his recovery and should be good to go for training camp. The veteran linebacker recorded 237 tackles in 27 games across two seasons with Las Vegas before signing a one-year deal with Houston this offseason.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Recovering from labrum surgery

    Perryman is recovering from offseason labrum surgery and didn't practice Tuesday at OTAs, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Perryman recorded 237 tackles over 27 games in two seasons with Las Vegas, but he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in Week 16 last year. He agreed to a one-year deal with the Texans this offseason and presumably had to pass a physical, but he remains sidelined to start Houston's offseason program. It's unclear when he'll be able to play again, but whenever he's healthy, the veteran linebacker figures to compete for a sizable role in the Texans' defense.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Lands with Houston

    Perryman agreed to a one-year contract with the Texans on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Perryman spent the last two seasons with the Raiders and will now make the move to Houston. He finished the 2022 campaign with 83 tackles (54 solo), one sack, two pass breakups and two interceptions in 12 contests. Perryman should play a significant role within the Houston defense in 2023 now that he has had time to recover from a dislocated shoulder he suffered late in the past season.
