Top Kamu Grugier-Hill News

  • Panthers' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Will suit up

    Grugier-Hill (illness) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Texans, Darin Gnatt of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Grugier-Hill didn't practice Friday due to an illness, but he'll still suit up Sunday. Over his last five appearances, Grugier-Hill has totaled 25 tackles, a sack and a pass defense while playing a rotational role.

  • Panthers' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Leads team in tackles

    Grugier-Hill recorded a team-high 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 37-27 loss to the Seahawks.

    While Grugier-Hill was only on the field for 46 snaps (65 percent), he made his presence felt. He is seeing an expanded role due to Shaq Thompson (lower leg) being sidelined for the season. The veteran will look to stay hot in Week 4 when the Panthers host the Vikings.

  • Panthers' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Set for expanded role

    Hill looks set to step into a starting role for the Panthers with Shaq Thompson (lower leg) expected to miss the rest of the season, David Newton of ESPN reports.

    Grugier-Hill replaced Thompson during Monday night's 20-17 loss to the Saints, handling 58 defensive snaps while racking up six tackles (five solo) and one sack. The development puts Grugier-Hill on the IDP fantasy radar heading into a Week 3 matchup against the Seahawks, but the Panthers' defense as a whole could struggle to replace both Thompson and Jaycee Horn (hamstring), who landed on short-term IR after sustaining an injury Week 1.

  • Panthers' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Lands in Carolina

    Grugier-Hill signed with the Panthers on Tuesday.

    Grugier-Hill split time between the Texans and Cardinals last season, recording 48 total tackles over 15 games. The Panthers will get more depth at the inside linebacker position behind Shaq Thompson and Frankie Luvu, while also acquiring a proven special teams player.

  • Cardinals' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Heads to the desert

    The Cardinals signed Grugier-Hill on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Grugier-Hill will now join Zaven Collins and Isaiah Simmons in Arizona's linebacker corps following Tuesday's transaction. The 28-year-old requested a release from the Texans in late October, after he played just 18 defensive snaps during the Week 7 loss to the Raiders due to the team's recent activation of rookie third-round pick Christian Harris. Grugier-Hill paced Houston in tackles in 2021, and he's thus far racked up 40 tackles and six starts this season.

  • Kamu Grugier-Hill: Cut by Houston

    The Texans granted Grugier-Hill his release Wednesday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    After the Texans activated rookie third-round draft pick Christian Harris for Week 7, he and Grugier-Hill platooned at weakside linebacker during a loss to the Raiders. Harris (38 snaps, 68 percent) had the greater share of snaps, and Grugier-Hill (18, 32 percent) may have seen the writing on the wall for his role being reduced over the second half of the season. The seven-year veteran requested his release, and the team quickly granted it. He was Houston's leading tackler in 2021 and started all six of the team's games this season while piling up 40 stops and one pass breakup. The 28-year-old's high-volume tackling gave him some utility in IDP leagues, and while he shouldn't struggle to find a home elsewhere, he may struggle to find the sort of playing time he enjoyed in Houston prior to Week 7.

  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Leaving Houston

    Grugier-Hill will be cut by the Texans at his request, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    While Grugier-Hill's reason for leaving the team is unclear, a league source confirms this news. He's logged 40 tackles and one pass breakup through his six games with the Texans.

  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Seven stops in loss

    Grugier-Hill recorded seven tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 34-24 loss to the Chargers.

    Grugier-Hill exploded for 18 tackles in the season opener, but he's totaled just 15 stops over the past three games. Regardless, he continues to garner plenty of defensive snaps and is still on track to record a second straight 100-plus tackle season.

  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Full go Thursday

    Grugier-Hill (neck) was listed as a full participation on the Texans' injury report Thursday, DJ Bien-Aime of reports.

    Grugier-Hill fully returned to practice after being listed as a limited participant on Houston's injury report Wednesday. The 28-year-old recorded 18 tackles during the Texans' overtime tie with the Colts in Week 1, and he should serve an important role against the Bears' run-heavy offense this coming Sunday.

  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Listed as limited participant

    Grugier-Hill (neck) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.

    Grugier-Hill played 98 percent of the Texans' defensive snaps during Sunday's loss to Denver, but he presumably picked up a neck injury as well. If he isn't upgraded to a full participant Thursday or Friday, he may be in danger of missing his first game of the season. He was the team's leading tackler last year and has 23 stops through two games this year, so his potential absence would be a huge blow to Houston's defense.

  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Logs 18 tackles

    Grugier-Hill had 18 tackles in Sunday's 20-20 overtime tie with the Colts in Week 1.

    A full overtime may have padded Grugier-Hill's stats, but he led the Texans last season with 108 tackles.
