Dillon (knee) had three tackles (two solo) in Wednesday's 27-17 loss to the Panthers in preseason Week 1.
Dillon is a 2016 fifth-round draft pick, who lasted just five games during his rookie season before tearing an ACL. He's back and healthy and looking to win the open strong safety job that was held by Quintin Demps in 2016. Demps went to Chicago via free agency, and safety is one of the main position battles being waged in preseason.
Dillon (knee) was held out of practice Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Dillon has been rehabbing from the torn ACL he suffered last season. The team appears reluctant to throw him back in the fire just yet. With four months still between now and the regular season, the Texans will likely ease Dillon back into the swing of things.
Dillon suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's win over the Colts and has subsequently been placed on IR, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Dillon's injury appeared to be serious right out of the gate, and the MRI results didn't bode well for much optimism as he'll miss the remainder of his rookie season. The Texans signed veteran Don Jones on Wednesday to provide depth at safety in Dillon's absence.
Dillon injured his knee while on special teams during the Texans' 26-23 win over the Colts on Sunday in Week 6, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Following the game, Dillon, a rookie fifth-round pick from West Viriginia, was on crutches and headed to get a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on the knee. The Texans believe the injury is serious.
