Texans' Ben Heeney: Rejoins Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heeney (knee) signed a contract with the Texans on Monday, the Laredo Morning-Times reports.

Heeney totaled two tackles in five games for the Texans last season before undergoing knee surgery and landing on injured reserve. The 25-year-old is likely to primarily serve as a special teams contributor again for Houston in 2018.

Texans' Ben Heeney: Heads to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans will place Heeney on injured reserve Wednesday with an unspecified injury, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Heeney likely sustained the injury in Monday's loss to the Ravens, a game in which he played 17 snaps, all on special teams. It's possible that Heeney would have lost his spot on the 53-man roster anyway if fully healthy with fellow linebacker Brian Cushing slated to return from a 10-game suspension ahead of the Week 13 matchup with Tennessee.

Texans' Ben Heeney: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heeney (knee) returned to the Texans' practice as a full participant Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Heeney, who has been sidelined for three weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery, appears to be nearing the completion of his recovery. While he is seemingly on track to suit up for Week 8, he will likely just serve in a depth role at linebacker.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heeney (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Browns.

Heeney was absent from practice all week as he continues to recover from minor arthroscopic knee surgery. He's yet to be given a timetable for a return, and in his absence, Brian Peters and Dylan Cole will continue to operate as reserves at inside linebacker.
