  • Texans' Justin Britt: Back to active roster

    Britt (knee) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    Britt has been out of action since being placed on IR on Oct. 31. His return will be a boost to the Texans' offensive line, as he should slide back into his starting center role Sunday against the Colts.

  • Texans' Justin Britt: Designated to return

    Britt (knee) was designated to return from injured reserve Thursday.

    The veteran center hyperextended and bruised his knee in October, but he was able to return in Week 7. However, Britt was subsequently moved to IR, and rookie Jimmy Morrissey has been starting at center. The Texans now have 21 days to activate Britt to the 53-man roster, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to return to action this Sunday.

    The Texans placed Britt (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    After sitting out Week 6 due to a knee injury, Britt returned to action in Week 7. However, he appears to have suffered a setback, as he will now be sidelined for at least three weeks with the move to injured reserve. Justin McCray will likely start at center during Britt's absence.

  • Texans' Justin Britt: Iffy for Week 7

    The Texans list Britt (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    Britt is expected to return to return from a one-game absence, but in the event he incurs a setback prior to the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff and is forced to miss a second straight contest this weekend, Justin McCray would likely draw the start at center.

    Britt spent his first six seasons in Seattle. He suffered a torn ACL during the 2019 season and was ultimately let go during the 2020 offseason following a failed physical. He subsequently sat out this past season while rehabbing and is now seemingly ready for a new chapter in his career.

  • Justin Britt: Cut loose by Seahawks

    The Seahawks released Britt with a failed physical designation Sunday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Aaron J. Fentress of The Athletic leaked the news earlier Sunday, noting the move will free up $8.5 million on the team's salary cap. Britt's 2019 campaign came to a close in Week 8, when he sustained a torn ACL. While he proceeds with the rest of his rehab, the 28-year-old center will seek employment elsewhere.

  • Seahawks' Justin Britt: Lands on IR

    The Seahawks placed Britt (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

    Britt suffered a torn ACL during this past Sunday's win over the Falcons, so the Seahawks will need to find a solution at center for the remainder of the season. Joey Hunt, who has three career starts, is the next man up for the job. Britt will undergo surgery and aim to be ready for the start of the 2020 season.
