  • Texans' Jalen Pitre: Logs eight tackles in finale

    Pitre (concussion) recorded eight tackles before leaving Houston's 32-31 win over the Colts in Week 18.

    Pitre led the Texans with 147 tackles and five interceptions. The rookie second-round pick out of Baylor, who started the year strong but faded in the middle, resuscitated his season after being moved from strong to free safety. After the switch, Pitre recorded 71 tackles over the final six games. Given health, Pitre will have a starting spot on the back end in 2023.

  • Texans' Jalen Pitre: Removed with possible concussion

    Pitre exited Sunday's game against the Colts to be evaluated for a concussion.

    Pitre appears to have sustained a head injury at some point during the second half. The rookie safety has emerged in a do-it-all role in Houston's secondary, and he logged eight tackles before being removed in the fourth quarter. In his absence, M.J. Stewart and Eric Murray could be in line for additional usage during the remainder of the fourth quarter.

  • Texans' Jalen Pitre: Notches another do-it-all outing

    Pitre collected 13 tackles (11 solo) and an interception during Sunday's 31-3 defeat versus the Jaguars.

    Pitre continued to serve as Houston's most productive defender, finishing with a team high in tackles Week 17. The rookie second-rounder also grabbed one of the team's two interceptions when he picked off backup quarterback C.J. Beathard late in the third quarter. Pitre now leads the Texans in tackles (139), passes defended (eight) and interceptions (five) over 16 games. He has also logged double-digit tackles in all but one game since Week 12, and he'll look to finish the season strong Week 18 against Indianapolis.

  • Texans' Jalen Pitre: Collects fourth INT of season

    Pitre racked up nine tackles (seven solo) and recorded an interception Saturday in a Week 16 win over the Titans.

    Pitre led Houston in tackles in the victory, and he ended the contest by picking off Malik Willis' desperation heave into the end zone as time expired.

  • Texans' Jalen Pitre: Posts double-digit tackles again

    Pitre logged 13 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 30-24 overtime defeat against Kansas City.

    Pitre logged at least 10 tackles for the third straight game and the fourth overall this season. The rookie has stepped up into a massively productive role since transitioning to free safety, though he failed to defend a pass for the first time in four games Week 15. Pitre's presence on every defensive snap for Houston should provide him an opportunity to log another prolific performance against Tennessee's rush-heavy offense Week 16.

  • Texans' Jalen Pitre: Move to free safety pays off

    Pitre recorded a team-high 12 tackles and had two passes defensed in Sunday's 27-23 loss to Dallas.

    Pitre, who had a team-high 16 tackles the previous week, is thriving since he was moved from strong safety to free safety, per Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle. He had a couple of pass breakups on jarring hits and a key third-and-goal stop to preserve Houston's slim lead at the time. The rookie safety began the year strong before hitting a midseason lull, but the shift to free safety has worked.
