Texans' Brandon Dunn: Officially placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn will miss the last three games of the 2020 season due to a pelvic fracture, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

Dunn underwent an MRI earlier in the day after being carted off the field Sunday against Chicago, and the results confirmed a pelvic fracture. Ross Blacklock and Corey Liuget are set to see an increase in reps the rest of the way in 2020.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: MRI scheduled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Leaves with hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn suffered a hip injury during Sunday's game against the Bears.

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.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Receives three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn agreed to a three-year, $12 million contract extension with the Texans on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Dunn has been a reliable rotational piece along Houston's defensive line the past three years, playing in 46 of a possible 48 regular-season games. The 27-year-old totaled 25 tackles and recorded his first career sack in 2019.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Fills depth role in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn appeared in all 16 of the Texans' regular-season games in 2019, registering 25 tackles along with one sack.

Dunn has been a depth soldier along the Texans' defensive line for the last five seasons, missing just one game over the last three years. The 27-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent when the offseason begins in March.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Staying in Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Receives tender from Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Back at 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The development points to Dunn being active for Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Colts. Barring any unforeseen setbacks, Dunn should serve in a starting role at nose tackle.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Inactive Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Jaguars.

Dunn is missing his second-straight game due to his ankle injury. He was listed as questionable entering the game and will have a chance to play next week if the Texans don't secure a first-round bye in the playoffs. Look for Angelo Blackson to draw the start at nose tackle with Dunn out.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Dunn was similarly listed as questionable for last week's game against the Eagles, only to be downgraded to out Saturday. Angelo Blackson would likely grab another start at nose tackle should Dunn be unable to suit up.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Unavailable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (ankle) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's contest against the Eagles.

Angelo Blackson is expected to step in at starting nose tackle, but it remains to be seen if Dunn could miss additional time past Week 16.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Dunn was a limited participant in practice all week and could be a game-time decision versus the Eagles. If Dunn were to miss any time, Angelo Blackson would be the main beneficiary of increased snaps.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Exits with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn suffered an ankle injury and is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Jets.

Dunn has played every game since the start of 2017 for the Texans, but was forced to leave this one early. Christian Covington and Angelo Blackson are the remaining reserve defensive linemen available for Houston should Dunn be unable to return.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dunn was promoted to the Texans' active roster from their practice squad on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Dunn had jumped from the practice squad to the active roster and back down again earlier this season, while he has yet to make an impact defensively. He'll look to secure his roster spot for a longer period of time as he provides depth behind Vince Wilfork and D.J. Reader at nose tackle.

Texans' Brandon Dunn: Competing at defensive end
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
