by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackson (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams.

The 28-year-old was considered questionable with the illness, but he's good to go for Sunday's contest. Blackson played a season-high 74 percent of defensive snaps last week and should play a heavy role again this week.

Cardinals' Angelo Blackson: Status in question for Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackson (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Blackson missed Friday's practice after coming down ill. He has two days to recover before Sunday's game. At this time, his illness hasn't been linked to COVID-19. Blackson played a season-high 74 percent snap share last week, and if he's unable to play, Zach Allen would be the only healthy defensive end on the roster.

Cardinals' Angelo Blackson: Signs with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackson agreed to a contract with Arizona on Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Texans parted ways with the veteran this offseason after he assumed a starting role in 2019, logging 20 tackles (11 solo) across 432 defensive snaps. Blackson could earn a depth role to begin the season behind Corey Peters and Zach Allen, but he'll certainly push for snaps to begin Week 1 of the regular season at the least.

Texans' Angelo Blackson: Restructures deal in Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackson will make $2.5 million in 2020 after restructuring his deal with the Texans on Saturday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This move freed up $1.5 million in cap space for the Texans. Blackson averaged 28.8 defensive snaps per game in 2019 and should push for a starting role in 2020, but he'll need to beat out Charles Omenihu and Carlos Watkins. At the very least, Blackson should play a rotational role.

Texans' Angelo Blackson: First full season as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackson started 15 of 16 regular-season games and recorded 20 tackles for Houston in 2019.

This was the first season as a primary starter at defensive end for Blackson, who has two years remaining on his contract. He's a known quantity to new defensive coordinator Anthony Weaver, which should put Blackson in position to compete for a starting job along the line in 2020. At 6-foot-4 and 319 pounds, the 27-year-old could slide over to nose tackle if the Texans don't bring back D.J. Reader.

Blackson will miss his first game since the 2017 season after being limited in practice all week. The fifth-year pro has averaged 29.5 defensive snaps per game this year en route to 12 total tackles. Charles Omenihu is expected to start in Blackson's stead.

Texans' Angelo Blackson: Limited Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday night's game against the Patriots, Sarah Barshop of reports.

Blackson was able to put in limited practices all week. While the 27-year-old has yet to miss a game this season, Charles Omenihu would be the likely replacement if Blackson is forced to sit out.

Texans' Angelo Blackson: Re-signs with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans and Blackson agreed on a three-year, $12 million contract on Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

Texans' Angelo Blackson: Remains with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackson signed a contract with the Texans on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

While the Texans elected not to tender Blackson as a restricted free agent, he's back in the fold after spending the final nine games of the 2017 season with the Texans. The 25-year-old recorded nine tackles and one pass break-up with Houston, and will likely serve as a rotational defensive lineman again in 2018.

Texans' Angelo Blackson: Signs with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackson was signed by the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Blackson was signed off the Patriots' practice squad, which is where he has been the entire season. He hasn't played since 2016, where he recorded just nine tackles (four solo). Regardless of his inexperience, the Texans need depth at defensive end since Joel Heath (knee) and Kendall Langford (back) are both nursing injuries, meaning Blackson could log a high snap count if both can't play.
