  • Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Posts sack Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    McKinney had seven tackles (five solo) and one sack against the Titans on Sunday. The third-year pro hadn't posted a sack since Week 2, but his average of 6.2 tackles per game helps make up the difference. McKinney played all 54 defensive snaps Sunday, and since that is expected to keep up, he'll be due for more outings like Week 13.

  • Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Questionable for Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    McKinney (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns. McKinney did not practice Wednesday and Thursday before finishing the week as a limited participant. The Texans' leading tackler is expected to play at this point despite the questionable designation.

  • McKinney (hip) did not practice for a second straight day Thursday but is expected to play Sunday against the Browns, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. McKinney is Houston's leading tackler with 31 stops over the first five games.

  • McKinney recorded six tackles, including two sacks, in Thursday's 13-9 win over the Bengals. McKinney is being asked to be a three-down linebacker this season. He played 59 of 64 snaps in the season opener, followed by 63 of 64 snaps Thursday. Those additional plays can lead to more tackles and sacks over the course of the season, particularly with Brian Cushing (suspension) set to miss another nine games. McKinney currently leads the Texans with 17 tackles.

  • McKinney tallied a team-high nine tackles in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. The entire defense failed to record any sacks or interceptions, so McKinney's nine tackles were one of the lone highlights. The 24-year-old could be in store for more responsibilities calling the plays for the Texans' defense after it was announced Wednesday that Brian Cushing would be suspended for the next 10 games for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy.
