Broncos' Christian Covington: Teaming up in Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington signed a one-year deal with the Broncos on Tuesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

The versatile defensive end was a key rotational piece for the Cowboys in his first season with the team, registering 28 tackles while soaking up over 500 snaps across defense and special teams. Consider him a depth piece along the Broncos' front seven.

Cowboys' Christian Covington: Nursing calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (calf) is questionable to return to Sunday's game versus the Dolphins, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Covington had an increased role on defense with Antwaun Woods (knee) inactive. Now he's on the sideline as well, so Trysten Hill and Maliek Collins currently are the only healthy defensive tackles on the Cowboys.

Cowboys' Christian Covington: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (calf) had five tackles (four solo) in last week's preseason opener against the 49ers.

Covington missed all of minicamp after suffering the calf injury in May, but he played 21 defensive snaps versus San Francisco and tied for the team lead in tackles. The 25-year-old signed a one-year deal with the Cowboys in March after spending the last four seasons with the Texans.

Cowboys' Christian Covington: Out through minicamp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (calf) didn't participate in June's minicamp, Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' official site reports.

The report suggests Covington has been rehabbing a calf injury most of the offseason. His status for the beginning of training camp next month is uncertain.

Cowboys' Christian Covington: Out with calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington suffered a calf injury and won't participate in this week's OTAs as a result, Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

The injury doesn't seem to be serious, but this early in the offseason program, Dallas is being cautious with any player less than 100 percent. Covington is expected to supply the Cowboys with depth off the edge in 2019 after collecting 7.5 sacks in four seasons for the Texans.

Cowboys' Christian Covington: Headed to Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington inked a one-year contract with the Cowboys on Thursday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Covington spent 2018 with the Texans, recording 15 tackles (eight solo) and 3.5 sacks in just 12 games. The 25-year-old can play both interior and edge on the defensive line, and is in line to provide pass-rushing depth for the Cowboys in 2019.

Texans' Christian Covington: Rises up in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington had four tackles and 2.5 sacks in Monday's 34-17 win over the Titans.

Covington had his best game of the season by far and constantly beat his man in one-on-one matchups. He'll get a lot of those matchups while offenses scheme to stop J.J. Watt or Jadeveon Clowney, so it's surprising to learn these were his first sacks of the season.

Texans' Christian Covington: Healthy scratch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Covington has been playing in a limited role through two games -- he missed Week 2 against the Titans due to a thigh injury -- and made two tackles. Expect Angelo Blackson to log a hefty workload in Covington's place.

Texans' Christian Covington: Practices Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (thigh) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Covington was held of out Week 2's game against the Titans but appears fully recovered from his thigh injury. As long as Convington is able to continue practicing throughout the week, he stands to suit up and start against the Giants on Sunday.

Texans' Christian Covington: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (thigh) is inactive for Sunday's tilt against the Titans.

Covington was limited in practice throughout the week after injuring his thigh last week against New England. With Covington out, look for Angelo Blackson to draw the spot start against a Titans offensive line that is missing their top three tackles.

Texans' Christian Covington: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (thigh) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.

Covington is still nursing a thigh injury suffered during the Texan's season opening loss to the Patriots. If Covington is able to participate in practice fully by the end of the week, he'll have a chance to start against the Titans on Sunday.

Texans' Christian Covington: Suffers thigh injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Patriots due to a thigh injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Covington won the starting defensive end job. His absence will open the door for Angelo Blackson to enter the contest. If Covington remains out, expect an update on the severity of his injury after the game.

Texans' Christian Covington: Receives full medical clearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (biceps) said Wednesday that he received full medical clearance for football activities, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports.

Covington was shut down after for the season after tearing his biceps in a Week 8 loss to the Seahawks, finishing the 2017 campaign with 16 tackles (10 solo), one sack and one forced fumble across seven games (two starts). After having completed his rehab process following surgery to repair his biceps, Covington shouldn't face any limitations when the Texans' offseason program begins in the spring. Look for Covington to work in a rotational role along the defensive line in 2018, the final year of his rookie deal.

Texans' Christian Covington: Has surgery Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington will undergo surgery Wednesday to repair his torn biceps, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Covington tore his biceps during Sunday's loss to Seattle and was placed on injured reserve Monday. Under contract through the 2018 season, Covington will look to make it back in time for the start of offseason workouts.

Texans' Christian Covington: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Covington suffered a torn bicep in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks and will now officially miss the remainder of the year on injured reserve. Covington recorded 16 tackles (10 solo), one sack and one forced fumble in seven games this season. The Texans are dealing with a laundry list of injuries on the defensive line, leaving Carlos Watkins, Joel Heath (knee) and Kendall Langford (back) to assume most of the reps at defensive end for the time being.

Texans' Christian Covington: Done for season with biceps tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Texans head coach Bill O'Brien said Covington suffered a torn biceps during Sunday's loss to the Seahawks and would miss the remainder of the season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Covington becomes the third Texans defensive end to suffer a season-ending injury, with the team having also lost another edge rusher to injured reserve in linebacker Whitney Mercilus (pectoral). Though Covington wasn't as adept at pressuring the quarterback as Mercilus or J.J. Watt (lower leg), his absence nonetheless represents a critical blow to the team's depth on the edge. He'll wrap up the 2017 campaign with 10 tackles, one sack and a forced fumble in seven contests.

Texans' Christian Covington: Out with elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington is out for the remainder of Sunday's game with an elbow injury.

Covington recorded one tackle before exiting. His absence will hurt the Texans' depth along the defensive line. Kendall Langford is in line to receive additional snaps at defensive end.

Texans' Christian Covington: Active for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (groin) is active for Sunday's Week 2 tilt with Kansas City, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

Covington's availability was in some question after he didn't practice Friday and suited up in only a limited capacity Thursday, but it appears he's ready to go. He's slated to serve as the starter at the end spot opposite J.J. Watt, though he doesn't figure to offer much IDP utility.

September 16, 2016 10:02 PM
Texans' Christian Covington: Questionable with groin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington didn't practice Friday due to a groin injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Covington has been downgraded from a limited participant and is looking unlikely to play Sunday against the Chiefs. The 2015 sixth-round pick out of Rice played 10 snaps in Week 1.

September 6, 2016 10:44 PM
Texans' Christian Covington: Listed as starter for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington is listed as the starting left defensive end for Houston's Week 1 game against Chicago.

Covington competed with Devon Still and Brandon Dunn during training camp for the open defensive end spot opposite J.J. Watt. He might be able to generate quarterback pressure, while offenses scheme for Watt and outside linebackers Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus,
