  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Expected to re-sign with Houston

    Grugier-Hill is expected to re-sign with the Texans on a one-year, $4 million deal Sunday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Grugier-Hill was Houston's leading tackler in 2021, totaling a career-high 108 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception. He saw an increased role after Zach Cunningham was let go midseason and figures to be a vital piece of the Texans defense in 2022.

  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Leading tackler

    Grugier-Hill recorded seven tackles, including one for a loss, in 28-25 loss to the Titans in Week 18.

    Grugier-Hill finished the season with a team-high 108 tackles, which represents a career best for the linebacker, who signed a one-year deal with Houston after spending five seasons as largely a substitute in Philadelphia and Miami. He added three sacks, three passes defensed, one interception and two forced fumbles to his seasonal resume. His stock is on the rise at the right time; the 27-year-old becomes an unrestricted free agent in the upcoming offseason. He told Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle that he'd like to return while adding there's been team interest in having him back. After the team parted ways with Zach Cunningham midseason, it's likely the Texans make an effort to re-sign Grugier-Hill.

    Grugier-Hill (knee) was cleared from the Texans' injury report Friday.

  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Off COVID list, limited due to knee

    Grugier-Hill was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday but was limited in practice due to a knee injury.

    Grugier-Hill had been dealing with a sprained knee prior to being placed in the COVID protocol. Assuming he's healthy enough to play Sunday in San Francisco, the starting linebacker will be looking add to his career high totals of 94 tackles and 3.0 sacks.

  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Added to COVID-19 list

    The Texans placed Grugier-Hill (knee) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

    Grugier-Hill's status for Sunday's game in Jacksonville was already iffy after he sprained his knee in the Week 14 loss to Seattle, so his placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list will present another obstacle he'll have to overcome in order to avoid an absence. The linebacker has been a tackling machine since Houston's Week 10 bye, racking up 45 stops to go along with two sacks and an interception over the team's past four contests.

  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Dealing with knee sprain

    Grugier-Hill was diagnosed with a sprained knee after exiting Sunday's 33-13 loss to the Seahawks, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Though the Texans don't believe Grugier-Hill sustained any ligament damage to his knee, his availability for the team's Week 15 matchup with Jacksonville is in question while he contends with the sprain. The 27-year-old has emerged as a high-end IDP commodity since stepping into a full-time role at linebacker for Houston in Week 2. Over his 11 appearances during that span, Grugier-Hill has racked up 92 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception.
