  • Texans' Christian Harris: To miss at least four games

    The Texans placed Harris (hamstring) on injured reserve Thursday.

    The rookie third-round pick spent much of training camp nursing a hamstring injury, but it appears he's expected to return to the field this season. Harris' first chance to come off IR is Week 5 versus the Jaguars.

  • Texans' Christian Harris: Nearing return to field

    Coach Lovie Smith said Monday that Harris (hamstring) is "a little bit closer" to returning to action, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The soft-tissue injury held Harris out for most of training camp, but he's apparently progressing well in his recovery at this point. The third-round rookie out of Alabama has a good shot at a significant role on a rebuilding Texans defense once he's ready to play again, and he has the speed to keep up with just about any running back or tight end he might be matched up against in 2022.

  • Texans' Christian Harris: Misses practice with injury

    Harris (undisclosed) didn't participate in Saturday's practice, Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The details of Harris' injury haven't been specified, but it was significant enough to sideline the rookie during camp. The Alabama product was drafted in the third round by Houston, and he will likely serve as a rotational piece behind linebacker Christian Kirksey. Harris is a tad undersized for his position as he stands 6-foot-1, but he makes up for it with his speed, as he ran a blazing 4.44 40-yard dash at the combine. Expect to hear more regarding Harris' injury status within the upcoming days.

  • Texans' Christian Harris: H-Town bound

    The Texans selected Harris in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 75th overall.

    The former inside linebacker for Alabama will head to Houston to play for Lovie Smith. Harris, like most Crimson Tide products, was a highly touted recruit who developed into a force in the middle of their defense. He is a sure tackler who can get after the passer or disrupt in the backfield when needed, as evidenced by his 10.0 career sacks and 27 tackles for loss. Harris is small for an NFL inside linebacker at 6-foot, but he managed to boost his weight from the 226 pounds he clocked at the combine to 235 pounds for his pro day. Despite the smaller size, Harris can go sideline to sideline with his 4.44 speed in the 40. He can play anywhere in Houston's linebacking corps.
