  • Texans' Sheldon Rankins: Lands in Houston on one-year deal

    The Texans agreed to terms with Rankins on a one-year, $10.5 million contract Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    The No. 12 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Rankins spent the last two seasons with the Jets after beginning his career in New Orleans. He's coming off a 2022 campaign in which he tallied three sacks and 43 tackles over 15 appearances. Rankins is a lane plugger up front and should be among the Texans' leaders in snaps played at defensive tackle during the upcoming season.

  • Jets' Sheldon Rankins: Practices in full Thursday

    Rankins (elbow) was a full participant during the Jets' practice Thursday, Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune reports.

    Rankins has missed the Jets' last two games since suffering a dislocated elbow Week 9 that was expected to keep him sidelined for 4-6 weeks. The 28-year-old defensive tackle returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday, and he should be ready to play again after logging a full session Thursday. Rankins recorded 25 tackles, two sacks and one forced fumble while playing all but five of his 318 snaps on defense before going down with this injury, and he should reprise a prominent role alongside Quinnen Williams moving forward.

  • Jets' Sheldon Rankins: Anticipates practicing Wednesday

    Head coach Robert Saleh said Wednesday that Rankins (elbow) is in line to return to practice in limited fashion, Zack Rosenblatt of The Athletic reports.

    Rankins dislocated his elbow back in Week 9 versus the Bills, and he ultimately hasn't been able to return to the practice field since. However, if the 305-pounder indeed participates in Wednesday's session, that would give him a decent shot to suit up this weekend in Minnesota. However, if Rankins doesn't gain medical clearance for a third consecutive contest, then Solomon Thomas and Quinnen Williams should continue handling most of New York's defensive tackle reps.

  • Jets' Sheldon Rankins: Dislocates elbow Sunday

    Rankins sustained a dislocated elbow during Sunday's win over the Bills, and he could now miss 4-6 weeks depending on the healing process, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    Rankins departed during the first half of Sunday's matchup versus Buffalo with what has since been revealed as a dislocated elbow. While there's currently no specific date set for his return, an injury like this usually takes players up to six weeks to fully recover from. While the 305-pounder remains sidelined, expect Solomon Thomas, Quinnen Williams and Nathan Shepherd to see a spike in usage on the Jets' defensive front.
