  • Texans' Dylan Cole: Placed on IR

    The Texans placed Cole (back) on injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Cole will miss the next three weeks as a result, and he'll target a return Week 13 against the Colts. The 26-year-old is tied for third with four special-teams tackles, and that's where the Texans will miss his impact.

  • Texans' Dylan Cole: Tagged as questionable

    Cole (back) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Browns.

    Cole finished the week with two consecutive limited practice sessions, so he'll look to return to action after just one week on the sidelines. The fourth-year linebacker out of Missouri State mostly sticks to special teams, where he has four tackles, tied for third on the team.

  • Texans' Dylan Cole: Dealing with injury

    Cole was unable to practice Wednesday due to a back injury.

    The specifics of the back issue remain unclear, but it's serious enough to force him to miss practice time. Cole was just getting back from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, so he'll likely have to log practice time to have a chance to suit up in Week 10. If he's forced to miss Sunday's game, Jonathan Greenard and Peter Kalambayi would be in line for an uptick in depth and special teams snaps.

  • Texans' Dylan Cole: Returns from COVID list

    Cole (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The 26-year-old was placed on the list last week for coming in close contact with the COVID-positive Jacob Martin, but he's now cleared the league's virus-related protocols. Cole should return to his role as a contributor on special teams for Houston.

  • Texans' Dylan Cole: Placed on COVID-19 list

    The Texans placed Cole on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The Missouri State product was placed on the list due to coming into close contact with Jacob Martin, who tested positive for the virus Thursday. Cole will need to reside on the list for at least five days, meaning he won't be available for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. As it stands now, Jonathan Greenard and Brennan Scarlett are the only healthy outside linebackers on the roster for Sunday's game.

    The Texans activated Cole (knee) off the active/PUP list Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    This is extremely positive news for Cole and the team, especially considering he is coming off a torn ACL. Cole will return to practice with the team, and if he's healthy enough for Week 1, he's expected to be deployed as a special teams savant while adding depth at the linebacker position.

  • Texans' Dylan Cole: Suffers calf injury

    Cole was forced out of Thursday's game against the Colts with a calf injury.

    Cole was on kickoff coverage when he dropped to the ground with a non-contact injury.

    Cole (wrist/knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
