Cunningham recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Colts.
It's been a bit of a slow go since Cunningham returned from an MCL sprain, but he seemed to be back to his old self Sunday. He finished second on the Texans in stops and recorded his fourth double-digit tackle performance of the season. He'll look to build on this strong showing Saturday against the Jets.
Cunningham had two tackles (one solo), broke up two passes and returned an interception 38 yards for a touchdown in Sunday's 29-13 win over the Browns.
The Texans drafted Cunningham in 2017 for his ability to drop back in coverage, and it paid off Sunday, when he stepped in front of a Baker Mayfield strike intended for Antonio Callaway and gave Houston a 17-0 lead in the second quarter. Since his arrival, Cunningham has made himself into a three-down linebacker and is tied for second on the team in tackles with 72.
Cunningham (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Monday's game against Tennessee.
Cunningham missed the last two games with the knee injury and started off this week as a limited practice participant, but faced no limitations Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 23-year-old should resume starting duties at inside linebacker, having posted 63 tackles (47 solo) through eight games.
Cunningham (knee) is listed as a limited participant on Thursday's injury report.
Cunningham continues to manage his recovery from an MCL sprain sustained during a Week 8 win over the Dolphins. The 23-year-old has missed three consecutive games due to the injury, and his status for Monday's tilt against the Titans appears to be in question. If Cunningham is unable to suit up Week 12, expect Brennan Scarlett to receive a larger workload.
Cunningham (knee) will not play Sunday against the Redskins.
Cunningham was originally considered questionable for the Week 11 contest, but now has been downgraded to out while he continues to battle an MCL sprain. The Vanderbilt product won't travel with the team and will aim to play next week against the AFC South rival Titans.
