  • Texans' Kevin Pierre-Louis: Lands on IR

    Pierre-Louis (groin) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Pierre-Louis suffered the injury in the Texans' 16-9 loss to the Broncos on Sunday. Although he was able to limp off of the field, he ultimately was carted to the locker room from the sideline. With the move to IR, Pierre-Louis is guaranteed to miss at least the next four games, with a return Week 8 against the Titans being the first game he'll be eligible to play. In Pierre-Louis' absence, Blake Cashman may take over the former's minimal role.

  • Football Team's Kevin Pierre-Louis: Cools down after strong start

    Pierre-Louis started 11 of his 13 games in 2020, recording 56 tackles (36 solo), two pass defenses, one sack and one forced fumble. Pierre-Louis opened the year in a three-down role, piling up 20 tackles on 142 snaps over the first two weeks of the season. He kept his job in Washington's base defense for most of the year, but it was Cole Holcomb who got most of the nickel work alongside Jon Bostic in the second half of the season. Among the three, only Pierre-Louis is scheduled for free agency during the upcoming offseason. Regardless of where he signs, the 29-year-old journeyman linebacker isn't likely to relive his brief moment of IDP relevance.

  • Football Team's Kevin Pierre-Louis: Deemed questionable for Week 16

    Pierre-Louis (ankle) was a limited practice participant Friday and is tagged as questionable for Sunday's contest versus Carolina, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

After logging three limited practice sessions this week, he appears to have a fair shot of returning Sunday.

  • Football Team's Kevin Pierre-Louis: All clear Thursday

    Pierre-Louis (shoulder) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports. Pierre-Louis was limited during Wednesday's practice, but the fact that he was upgraded so quickly is evidence that the team may have been managing his practice reps during the week.
