  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Ruled out for Week 11

    Greenard (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans.

    Greenard was questionable ahead of Sunday's matchup after he was limited at practice all week. However, he didn't make the trip to Tennessee and will be sidelined for the first time since Week 2. Jordan Jenkins will likely see additional playing time on Houston's defensive line.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Questionable for Sunday

    Greenard (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans.

    Greenard has logged three straight limited practices this week, but he has played in each of Houston's last seven contests and might be able to suit up for the divisional matchup. If he can't go, then Jordan Jenkins or Eric Wilson could be in line for an uptick in playing time.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Keeps up sack streak

    Greenard had three solo tackles, one sack and one pass breakup during Sunday's 38-22 loss to the Rams.

    Gennard has recorded at least one sack in four straight games, bringing his total to seven through six appearances. The second-year pro has been one of the lone bright spots of Houston's defensive front, and he's now set for a prime Week 9 matchup against the Dolphins' vulnerable O-line.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Gets Murray twice

    Greenard recorded four tackles, two sacks and a pass defensed in Sunday's 31-5 loss to the Cardinals.

    That's two consecutive weeks with a pair of sacks for Greenard, who moves into the top 10 in that category with six for the season. He's taken nicely to a shift from linebacker to edge rusher for the Texans.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Records second sack

    Greenard had three tackles, two for a loss and a sack in Week 5's 25-22 loss to the Patriots.

    Greenard recorded his second sack in three games played this season. The 2020 third-round pick worked as an outside linebacker in Houston's 3-4 defense during his rookie year, but he's moved to defensive end in Lovie Smith's 4-3 alignment. Through three games, he has seven tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Off injured list

    Greenard (chest) wasn't listed on the Texans' injury report Wednesday.

    Greenard injured his chest in Sunday's Week 5 loss to the Bills and was unable to return to the game following the injury. The defensive end seems healthy and should be able to play Sunday against the Patriots, barring any setbacks. Expect Jacob Martin and Charles Omenihu to fill in for Greenard if he can't play.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Has chest injury

    Greenard (chest) is questionable to return to Sunday's game at Buffalo, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

    Greenard leaving early leaves an already beat-up Texans defense further depleted. This likely means more work for Jacob Martin and Charles Omenihu.

    Greenard (illness) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Inactive against Jacksonville

    Greenard (illness) is inactive for Week 1 against the Jaguars.

    Greenard recovered from an ankle sprain suffered in preseason, but he was still unable to crack the active roster for the season opener due to an undisclosed illness. The 24-year-old recorded 19 tackles (10 solo) and a sack in 13 games as a rookie last year.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Sprains ankle

    Greenard sustained a sprained ankle in Saturday's 26-7 win over the Packers in Preseason Week 1, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Switching positions

    Greenard was working out with the Texans' defensive linemen during Thursday's practice, Mark Berman of Fox 26 KRIV reports.

    Greenard was drafted as a linebacker out of Florida by the team last season, and he saw action in 13 games, recording 19 tackles (11 solo) and a sack over that span. Greenard is listed at 263 pounds, so he'll likely look to add some weight on this offseason in order to provide depth at defensive end heading into the 2021 season.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Records first career sack

    Greenard had one tackle, a sack, in Sunday's 27-20 win over New England.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Season-high snap count

    Greenard had three tackles over a season-high 57 snaps in the Week 9 win over Jacksonville.

    Greenard, a 2020 third-round pick out of Florida, had played just 11 snaps before Week 9. He was given a more prominent role while the Texans managed a depleted linebacking corps. Both Dylan Cole (back) and Whitney Mercilus returned this week, but Jacob Martin (COVID-19) remains sidelined and Brennan Scarlett (forearm) was placed on injured reserve. Greenard could continue to see elevated playing time along with a role on special teams.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Moving up depth chart

    Greenard is expected to see an uptick in usage at outside linebacker for Sunday's game against Jacksonville, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports.

    The Texans are all of the sudden feeling thin at linebacker, with Jacob Martin testing positive for the virus Thursday and both Dylan Cole and Whitney Mercilus being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list after coming in close contact with Martin. With Kyle Emanuel dealing with a concussion, that leaves both Greenard and Brennan Scarlett as healthy outside linebackers. Despite suiting up in four games this season, Greenard has yet to record an IDP-relevant stat.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: All clear Wednesday

    Greenard (ankle) was a full participant for Wednesday's practice.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Inactive for opener

    Greenard (ankle) is inactive for Thursday's season opener against Kansas City.

    Greenard logged three straight limited practice sessions leading up to Thursday's contest, so his lack of availability isn't a complete surprise. As long as Greenard remains sidlined, Davin Bellamy or Jacob Martin could see increased snaps.

  • Texans' Jonathan Greenard: Questionable for season opener

    Greenard (ankle) is officially questionable for Thursday's season opener against the Chiefs.
