Dunn (hip) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
It was just a matter of time before the Texans made this move, as Dunn was declared out for the season after suffering a pelvic fracture in the Week 14 loss to the Bears. It's unclear if he'll be ready for the 2021 season. Dunn has two years remaining on the three-year, $12 million contract he signed with the Texans in February of 2020.
Dunn will miss the last three games of the 2020 season due to a pelvic fracture, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Dunn (hip) will undergo an MRI on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Dunn was carted off the field during the fourth quarter of Sunday's 36-7 loss to the Bears. He will likely bear the questionable tag heading into Week 15 against the Colts. If a replacement is needed, Ross Blacklock and Corey Liuget are in line for more playing time next week.

Dunn failed to record a tackle before he exited in the fourth quarter. If he's unable to recover before next week's game against the Colts, either Ross Blacklock or Corey Liuget will start at nose tackle.
Dunn agreed to a three-year, $12 million contract extension with the Texans on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Dunn signed his one-year tender with the Texans on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The deal Dunn elected to sign is worth just over $2 million. Dunn started at nose tackle for the Texans in 2018, accumulating 24 tackles (13 solo) and one forced fumble across 14 games. He appears on track for a similar role during the 2019 season.
The Texans submitted a $2.025 million tender to Dunn on Monday, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.
Dunn was decent for the Texans in 2018, racking up 24 tackles (13 solo) and one forced fumble in 14 games. In theory, a team could still sign him to an offer sheet but would have to give up a draft pick in return if Houston doesn't match it. If the 26-year-old stays, he likely will be the favorite to regain his role as the starting nose tackle.
