  • Texans' Hassan Ridgeway: Heads to IR

    Ridgeway (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    The 29-year-old defensive tackle suffered a torn right Achilles during the Texans' Week 9 win over the Buccaneers, so it's no surprise that he's been placed on IR. Ridgeway appeared in only three games this year, recording six total tackles. Kurt Hinish is expected to see more work on the Texans' defensive line with Ridgeway missing the remainder of the season.

  • Texans' Hassan Ridgeway: Out for season with Achilles tear

    Ridgeway tore his right Achilles in Sunday's Week 9 win over Tampa Bay and won't return this season, Aaron Wilson of click2houston.com reports.

    Ridgeway missed five games earlier this season with a calf injury before being activated ahead of Week 8. He was filling for usual starter Sheldon Rankins (knee) at defensive tackle this past Sunday but left the game early in the second half with what has now been confirmed as an Achilles tear. Ridgeway will consequently undergo season-ending surgery and head to injured reserve. Meanwhile, Rankins could return to face Cincinnati in Week 10, but if he's unable to go, Kurt Hinish would likely step into his role.
