After being inactive for the Texans' season opener with a hamstring injury, Pierre-Louis is headed to injured reserve.

Texans' Kevin Pierre-Louis: Inactive against Jags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis is questionable for Sunday's Week 1 matchup against the Jaguars due to a thigh injury.

Texans' Kevin Pierre-Louis: Lands deal with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis signed a two-year, $8 million deal with the Texans on Monday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

The Texans were aggressive in bolstering their defense early in free agency, with Pierre-Louis being the latest addition. He's bounced around several teams of late but served a key role in the Washington Football Team's defense by logging 505 snaps in 2020. He also tallied a career-high 56 tackles and may serve as a starting inside linebacker for Houston in 2021.

Football Team's Kevin Pierre-Louis: Cools down after strong start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis started 11 of his 13 games in 2020, recording 56 tackles (36 solo), two pass defenses, one sack and one forced fumble.

Pierre-Louis opened the year in a three-down role, piling up 20 tackles on 142 snaps over the first two weeks of the season. He kept his job in Washington's base defense for most of the year, but it was Cole Holcomb who got most of the nickel work alongside Jon Bostic in the second half of the season. Among the three, only Pierre-Louis is scheduled for free agency during the upcoming offseason. Regardless of where he signs, the 29-year-old journeyman linebacker isn't likely to relive his brief moment of IDP relevance.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Football Team's Kevin Pierre-Louis: Can't go Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

The 29-year-old was deemed questionable coming into the weekend after submitting a trio of limited practice sessions between Wednesday and Friday. Despite that level of involvement constituting an improvement after Pierre-Louis was unable to participate in any fashion the week prior, the outside linebacker will be sidelined for a second consecutive game. Khaleke Hudson stands as the next man up at weakside linebacker after he got the starting nod and proceeded to collect eight tackles over 28 defensive snaps last week against the Seahawks.

Football Team's Kevin Pierre-Louis: Deemed questionable for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis (ankle) was a limited practice participant Friday and is tagged as questionable for Sunday's contest versus Carolina, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

The linebacker picked up the ankle injury during Week 14's matchup against San Francisco and missed last week's game against Seattle. After logging three limited practice sessions this week, he appears to have a fair shot of returning Sunday. If he's able to suit up, Pierre-Louis should return to his regular starting role at weakside linebacker.

Football Team's Kevin Pierre-Louis: Won't play against former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Pierre-Louis was unable to take the practice field this week, and he'll be unable to play versus the Seahawks, who drafted him in the fourth round in 2014. Cole Holcomb (concussion) is also out, meaning the Football Team will be without two starting linebackers. Thomas Davis, Khaleke Hudson and Jared Norris are all candidates to fill in.

Football Team's Kevin Pierre-Louis: Missing practice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis (ankle) was a nonparticipant during Wednesday's practice, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.

Pierre-Louis was forced to leave Sunday's game against the 49ers in the fourth quarter due to the ankle injury and the injury appears to more serious than originally anticipated. Expect the veteran's practice availability the next two days shed a light on his chances to suit up in Week 15 against Seattle. If Pierre-Louis were forced to miss the contest, Khaleke Hudson would be in line to draw the start at weakside linebacker.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Football Team's Kevin Pierre-Louis: All clear Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis (shoulder) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

Pierre-Louis was limited during Wednesday's practice, but the fact that he was upgraded so quickly is evidence that the team may have been managing his practice reps during the week. Now appearing fully healthy, the veteran will assume his usual starting role at weakside linebacker for Week 7 against the Cowboys.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Kyle Stackpole of the Washington Football Team's official site reports.

Football Team's Kevin Pierre-Louis: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis had 15 tackles (10 solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's 30-15 loss to Arizona.

A backup and special teams player throughout most of his career, Pierre-Louis now finds himself in a three-down role, playing 98 percent of Washington's defensive snaps through the first two weeks of the season. He only had four tackles (three) in the season opener, but the playing time led to a huge stat line Week 2. It appears the 28-year-old will have some IDP value, though fellow three-down linebacker Jon Bostic has also been productive through two weeks, logging 14 tackles (10 solo) and a pair of sacks.

Bears' Kevin Pierre-Louis: Headed to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pierre-Louis and the Redskins agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth up to $3.45 million Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Pierre-Louis was an underrated asset for the Bears last season on both defense and special teams. In 14 games, the 28-year-old racked up 37 tackles (27 solo) and an interception across 491 total snaps. It's unclear whether Pierre-Louis will find a more prominent role on defense for Washington or remain a depth player.
