    Zach Cunningham (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.The timing of the move all but rules Cunningham out for Sunday's game against Buffalo, and there's no guarantee he'll come off the list in time to dress for Houston's Week 5 game against the Patriots. Cunningham's absence will make it even harder for the heavy underdog Houston Texans to upset the Bills, as he's coming off a 14-tackle Week 3 performance.

    Zach Cunningham racked up a game-high 14 tackles (six solo) in Thursday's 24-9 loss to the Panthers.Cunningham was extremely busy for a Houston Texans defense that spent the majority of the game on the field due to Houston's conservative and ineffective game plan on offense in rookie quarterback Davis Mills' NFL debut. After totaling 142 tackles in 2019 and 164 in 2020, Cunningham has racked up 27 through three weeks this season.

    Texans' Zach Cunningham: Finishes strong

    Zach Cunningham recorded 13 tackles and one tackle for a loss in Houston's season-ending loss to the Titans on Sunday.Even as Derrick Henry ran for 250 yards against Houston's porous run defense, Cunningham was an active tackler yet again. He recorded a third straight game with double-digit tackles and finished with nine such games in 2020. Cunningham recorded a career-high 164 tackles and three sacks in his fourth NFL season. Fixing Houston's defense will be priority for a new general manager and head coach, but Cunningham, who signed a four-year contract prior to the 2020 season, should remain a key piece in 2021.
