Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Moves to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 27-year-old was already ruled out for the rest of the 2020 season and is set to undergo shoulder surgery, so this was just a procedural move for the Texans. McKinney totaled 37 tackles in four games and remains under contract with Houston for next year.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney (shoulder) will be placed on injured reserve and miss the rest of the season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

McKinney, who missed Sunday's win over the Jaguars due to the shoulder injury, needs to undergo season-ending surgery. He'll be replaced by Tyrell Adams, who filled in for McKinney on Sunday and recorded 13 tackles, one for a loss, and recovered a fumble. McKinney's season ends with 37 tackles over four games.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Unavailable against Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars.

McKinney is second on the team with 37 tackles through four games, so the Texans' defense could struggle without the Mississippi State product in the fold. Tyrell Adams is expected to start in his place Sunday, but Dylan Cole should rotate in as well.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Questionable against Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

It's encouraging that McKinney didn't miss any practice time, but his final status won't be revealed until 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. McKinney ranks second on the team with 37 tackles through four games, and if he's forced to miss time, expect Tyrell Adams to step into the starting role.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Ten stops Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney made 10 tackles in Sunday's 31-23 loss to the Vikings.

McKinney and Zach Cunningham were once again busy in the middle of the field. Each registered 10 tackles, and this was McKinney's third consecutive double-digit tackle effort. The 27-year-old has 38 tackles through four weeks and is on pace to set a career high.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Piles up 11 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney made 11 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's 28-21 loss to the Steelers.

For a third straight week, McKinney has played less than 90 percent of the defensive snaps, but he's been a consistent contributor nonetheless. The sixth-year linebacker led the team in tackles and now has 28 total stops this season. He should be able to reach 100 tackles for the fourth time in five years.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Active tackler
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney made 10 tackles and had one pass defensed in Sunday's 33-16 loss to the Ravens in Week 2.

The interior linebacking duo of McKinney and Zach Cunningham put in a heavy workload Sunday, recording 25 tackles between them. McKinney has 17 stops through two weeks, putting him on pace for a fourth consecutive 100-tackle season.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Records seven stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney had seven tackles, including one for a loss, in Thursday's 34-20 defeat to the Chiefs.

McKinney finished second on the team behind inside linebacker partner Zach Cunningham (eight tackles). The duo, in that order, led the team in tackles in 2019.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Recovers from ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney has recovered from arthroscopic ankle surgery in February, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

McKinney made a speedy recovery from the procedure and is expected to be ready for training camp. "I'm feeling great," McKinney said. "I'm working hard and trying to maintain my body, work on flexibility, work on explosion and get in shape to be ready whenever we get the call to get back together." McKinney recorded 101 tackles, one sack, 5.5 tackles for losses, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries over 14 games in 2019.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Gets ankle surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney is recovering from arthroscopic ankle surgery, with the expectation of a full recovery before Week 1 of 2020, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The rehab process may impact McKinney's participation in the offseason program but shouldn't put him in any danger of missing the regular-season opener. Entering the second season of a five-year, $50 million contract, the 27-year-old is working on four consecutive years with 95 or more tackles, though his pass-rushing impact has dropped off in recent years, and he received the lowest PFF grade (64.8) of his career in 2019, ranking 30th among 89 qualified linebackers. His ankle may have contributed to the down season, and even at less than his best McKinney was still a solid starter.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Wraps up fifth season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney had four tackles in Sunday's 51-31 playoff loss to the Chiefs.

McKinney finished up his fifth season, one in which he recorded 101 tackles, the third time he's eclipsed the century mark. He also had one sack, a forced fumble and recovered two fumbles in 14 games. As the defensive play caller, McKinney is an important piece on a defense that was exposed badly by the Chiefs. There's another four years remaining on his contract.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's divisional matchup against Tennessee.

McKinney logged a trio of full practices during the week while managing a concussion, but as evidenced by this news, has cleared the league's concussion protocol. He's expected to handle his usual role as starting inside linebacker for the contest.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Practices again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney (concussion) was a full participant for Thursday's practice.

McKinney, who was a full participant for the second straight day, is progressing toward being available for the Texans' regular season finale at home against the Titans. The linebacker suffered a concussion Week 15 and did not practice or play Week 16.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Won't suit up Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney (concussion) is ruled out of Saturday's game against Tampa Bay.

McKinney was unable to get on the practice field this week and remains in the concussion protocol. If Brennan Scarlett (Achilles/shouler) is active, he is likely to see an uptick in snaps in the 27-year-old's stead.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Suffers concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney sustained a concussion and won't return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

McKinney posted nine tackles and 0.5 sacks before leaving the contest. The 27-year-old linebacker will be on a slightly shortened practice week with the team playing Tampa Bay on Saturday, and he'll need to clear the league's concussion protocol before suiting up. If he can't go, either Peter Kalambayi or Tyrell Adams is in line to start.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Totals seven tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Accounts for 11 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney recorded 11 tackles (six solo) during Thursday's 20-17 win over the Colts.

Texans' Benardrick McKinney: Collects eight tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinney recorded eight tackles, including one for a loss, in Sunday's 41-7 loss to the Ravens in Week 11.

Through 10 games, McKinney has recorded 68 tackles and appears well on his way to a third season with 100-plus tackles. The 27-year-old linebacker remains without an interception, but McKinney does have a pair of fumble recoveries in 2019. His value in IDP formats continues to be heavily reliant on tackles.
