  • Texans' Jalen Pitre: Two picks Week 3

    Pitre had eight tackles, a sack and two interceptions in Sunday's 23-20 loss to Chicago in Week 3. Pitre has made in impact just three games into his NFL career. The two interceptions were the first of his career and the sack forced a punt, giving Houston a chance to take the lead in the fourth quarter. The Texans did not take advantage of any of Pitre's disruptive plays, but they appear to have found a gem in the second round of the 2022 draft.

He finished the preseason with nine tackles (two for a loss) and at times lined up on the line of scrimmage. The second-round pick out of Baylor will be part of Houston's revamped and youthful secondary along with cornerback Derek Stingley, the third-overall pick.

  • Texans' Jalen Pitre: Working with the ones

    Pitre has been practicing with the top defensive unit early in camp, Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle reports. Pitre put on a show Friday, lunging for a tipped pass to record his first interception of camp. Houston head coach Lovie Smith said the No. 37 overall pick in the 2022 draft is blending in and then offered conflicting statements about the rookie's role, referring to Pitre as "one of our starting safeties" before telling reporters he isn't "giving out any starting spots." It sounds like Smith wants Pitre to start and will evaluate his progress throughout the preseason before committing to him as a No. 1 safety.
