  • 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.

  • 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.

Over his 11 appearances during that span, Grugier-Hill has racked up 92 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles and one interception.

  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: Turns in historic game

    Grugier-Hill tallied 20 tackles (10 solo) and a sack in Sunday's 31-0 loss to the Colts.

  • Texans' Kamu Grugier-Hill: First pick proves vital

    Grugier-Hill had 12 tackles and an interception in a 22-13 win over the Titans in Week 11. The interception came on the game's opening drive with Tennessee threatening in the red zone.

Brown and stepped in front of the pass at the Houston 12-yard line, returning it 82 yards.
