Texans' Dylan Cole: Officially signs tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole has signed his restricted free agent tender with the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cole was extended a one-year, $2.1 million contact tender by the Texans prior to free agency. He logged 16 tackles (13 solo), one pass defensed and one fumble recovery across 11 games last season before suffering a torn ACL. It is unclear when he will be able to return to the field, but he is expected to return to his usual rotational role at linebacker.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans extended a one-year contract tender to Cole (knee) on Thursday.

Cole notched 16 tackles (13 solo), one pass defensed and one recovered fumble across 11 regular-season games in 2019 prior to suffering a torn ACL. When back to full health, he figures to reprise his usual rotational role in the Texans' linebacker corps.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Moves to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cole suffered a torn ACL in Thursday's win over the Colts, so this move was simply a matter of time. The 25-year-old finishes 2019 with 16 tackles (13 solo) with one pass defensed and one fumble recovery.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Diagnosed with ACL tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole suffered a torn ACL in his right knee during Thursday's 20-17 win over the Colts, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cole exited Thursday's win due to a non-contact injury which has now been revealed to be a torn ACL. The special-teams ace and reserve linebacker will miss the remainder of the 2019 season, and he's set to undergo surgery on his right knee. Expect the Texans to officially place Cole on injured reserve in the coming days.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Suffers calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was forced out of Thursday's game against the Colts with a calf injury.

Cole was on kickoff coverage when he dropped to the ground with a non-contact injury. The third-year linebacker leads the Texans with six special-teams tackles this year, and he contributes in a reserve role on defense. Cole will look to utilize the mini-bye provided by a Thursday night game to get healthy for Week 13 against the Patriots.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Returns to practice in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (wrist/knee) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cole was activated off injured reserve Tuesday and appears good to go for Sunday's game against the Browns after undergoing wrist surgery as well as arthroscopic knee surgery in late September. The 24-year-old should return to a rotational role at inside linebacker with the rest of the position group healthy.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans activated Cole (wrist) from injured reserve, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cole underwent surgery to repair a dislocated wrist and had arthroscopic knee surgery in late September. The Texans began Cole's 21-day practice window last week. The second-year linebacker recorded nine tackles before going down in Week 3, and the Texans hope he will be a key piece for the team's stretch run.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Begins three-week practice window
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (wrist) began the 21-day practice window to return from injured reserve Wednesday.

Starting Wednesday, the Texans have the next 21 days to decide if Cole should return this season. Head coach Bill O'Brien has voiced his optimism as to whether Cole can return in 2018. Cole can return to practice Wednesday but isn't eligible to play -- if the team decides he can play -- until Dec. 9 against the Colts.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Good chance to play again in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bill O'Brien said that Cole (wrist) has a "good chance" to return from injured reserve and play again during the 2018 season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cole was placed on injured reserve during late September after undergoing wrist and knee surgery, and was initially expected to miss the entire 2018 season. If the second-year linebacker is able to eventually resume practicing and return to the field this season, he'll serve as a depth option and special teams asset.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Undergoes wrist and knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole underwent wrist and knee surgery Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cole dislocated his wrist during Sunday's loss to the Giants and was subsequently placed on injured reserve Monday. Per the report, the second-year linebacker's knee also went under the knife, though that surgery would've been delayed until a later date if not for his wrist needing immediate attention. Cole will miss the rest of the season and will attempt to fully recover in time for training camp in 2019.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole suffered a dislocated wrist in Sunday's game against the Giants and was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Cole's injury went unreported Sunday because the linebacker kept quiet in an effort to remain on the field. Now, Cole's season is likely over, and the Texans may look to sign another inside linebacker to assist with their depth at the position.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Full participant Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (hamstring) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

This is the first full practice that Cole has managed to put together since he suffered the hamstring strain back in Week 6. He looks to now be on track to return to the field as a depth option in the Texans' front seven.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Won't return Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Cole did not practice again this week and has not done so since sustaining the Grade 2 hamstring strain in Week 6. There's no clear timetable on his recovery at this point, but he'll likely need to string together multiple practices before a return is truly considered.

Texans' Dylan Cole: To remain sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (hamstring) will not play in the Texans' Week 10 matchup against the Rams.

Cole, who has been sidelined since suffering a Grade 2 hamstring strain in Week 6, has been unable to practice, so this decision comes as no surprise. He will now move his sights on to a potential Week 11 return.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Will sit Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Cole has yet to practice after suffering a Grade 2 hamstring strain in Week 6. The 23-year-old should be nearing a return in the next couple of weeks -- considering there has been no indication of a setback -- but he will likely need to string together a couple practice sessions first.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Will not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Cole was diagnosed with a Grade 2 hamstring strain less than two weeks ago, so this was to be expected. The timetable for the injury is 4-to-6 weeks, but the team has indicated the front end of that timetable is a possibility at this point.

Texans' Dylan Cole: MRI reveals Grade 2 strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (hamstring) suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain against the Browns on Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cole underwent an MRI on Monday that revealed the extent of the injury, which typically requires at least four weeks of recovery time. The Texans are currently hurting at inside linebacker, as Brian Peters is the only healthy reserve behind starters Benardrick McKinney and Zach Cunningham.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Will undergo MRI on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (hamstring) will undergo a magnetic resonance imaging exam Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

After injuries hit Houston's linebacking corps, Cole was elevated in the rotation. He had been on the field for nine of the first 26 defensive snaps before exiting Sunday's game. The undrafted rookie from Missouri State has two interceptions and one sack this season.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Out for rest of game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (hamstring) won't return to Sunday's game against the Browns, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports.

Cole doesn't play many defensive snaps, so his absence shouldn't hurt fantasy owners. Still, he's a solid special teams contributor, and Brian Peters will have to pick up the slack in his absence.

October 16, 2017 03:37 AM
Texans' Dylan Cole: Hurts hamstring Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was helped off the field with a hamstring injury Sunday, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The undrafted rookie linebacker isn't expected to return to this game, although an official diagnosis hasn't been released. Cole has 17 tackles (seven solo) and scored on an interception return in Week 4 against the Titans. Brian Peters will log more snaps in Cole's absence.
