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

The Texans placed Cole (back) on injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cole will miss the next three weeks as a result, and he'll target a return Week 13 against the Colts. The 26-year-old is tied for third with four special-teams tackles, and that's where the Texans will miss his impact.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Tagged as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (back) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Browns.

Cole finished the week with two consecutive limited practice sessions, so he'll look to return to action after just one week on the sidelines. The fourth-year linebacker out of Missouri State mostly sticks to special teams, where he has four tackles, tied for third on the team.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole was unable to practice Wednesday due to a back injury.

The specifics of the back issue remain unclear, but it's serious enough to force him to miss practice time. Cole was just getting back from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, so he'll likely have to log practice time to have a chance to suit up in Week 10. If he's forced to miss Sunday's game, Jonathan Greenard and Peter Kalambayi would be in line for an uptick in depth and special teams snaps.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Returns from COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 26-year-old was placed on the list last week for coming in close contact with the COVID-positive Jacob Martin, but he's now cleared the league's virus-related protocols. Cole should return to his role as a contributor on special teams for Houston.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Placed on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans placed Cole on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Missouri State product was placed on the list due to coming into close contact with Jacob Martin, who tested positive for the virus Thursday. Cole will need to reside on the list for at least five days, meaning he won't be available for Sunday's game against Jacksonville. As it stands now, Jonathan Greenard and Brennan Scarlett are the only healthy outside linebackers on the roster for Sunday's game.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Full speed ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (knee) practiced without limitations Friday.

Cole was limited for the first two practices of the week, but he's back to full speed. Typically, Cole plays exclusively on special teams. However, with Benardrick McKinney (shoulder) on IR and Peter Kalambayi (hamstring) considered questionable, Cole could handle more reps at inside linebacker Sunday.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Practices Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (knee) participated in Monday's practice, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cole was activated off the active/PUP list Sunday and on the field the next day. Entering his fourth NFL season, Cole will once again be a primary backup at inside linebacker.

August 17, 2020 09:28 PM
Texans' Dylan Cole: Activated Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans activated Cole (knee) off the active/PUP list Sunday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This is extremely positive news for Cole and the team, especially considering he is coming off a torn ACL. Cole will return to practice with the team, and if he's healthy enough for Week 1, he's expected to be deployed as a special teams savant while adding depth at the linebacker position.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Lands on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cole (knee) has been placed on the Texans' active/PUP list.

Once healthy enough to practice, Cole will look to resume his role as a Texans special teams captain and reserve linebacker. The 26-year-old logged 15 tackles in 11 games with Houston last season.

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.

Texans' Dylan Cole: Tendered by Houston
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.

November 27, 2018 08:24 PM
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.

September 25, 2018 06:28 PM
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.
