  • Texans' Kerry Hyder: Joins Houston's roster

    The Texans signed Hyder to the 53-man roster Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC2 Houston reports.

    Hyder was promoted from the practice squad and takes the roster spot of defensive end Dylan Horton, who was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list Thursday. The 32-year-old Hyder has prior familiarity with Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans, who served as the lineman's defensive coordinator in San Francisco.

  • Kerry Hyder: Signed by Houston

    Hyder was signed to the Texans' practice squad on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

  • Kerry Hyder: Let go by San Francisco

    The 49ers released Hyder on Friday, per the team's official site.

    San Francisco acquired Randy Gregory from the Broncos in a trade Friday and therefore needed to open up a spot on the roster. Hyder was consequently let go after logging one tackle (a sack) over the team's first four games. The veteran has recorded 22 sacks in his NFL career and may now seek an opportunity elsewhere.

  • 49ers' Kerry Hyder: Performs well in preseason finale

    Hyder (shoulder) stood out during Friday's 23-12 preseason loss to the Chargers, according to Kyle Madson of USA Today.

    Hyder exited San Francisco's previous preseason contest with a shoulder injury, and he did not return to that game. It looks like this injury wasn't ultimately all that significant, as the 32-year-old still wrangled four tackles (two solo), one quarterback hit and a pass defended after he was subbed into Friday's contest. Hyder figures to provide San Francisco with some valuable depth at defensive end this coming season.

  • 49ers' Kerry Hyder: Staying with 49ers

    Hyder and the 49ers agreed to a contract Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Hyder will return to San Francisco for a second consecutive season after he produced 19 tackles, including a sack, while recording three pass deflections and a fumble recovery over 16 games last year. The defensive lineman will likely operate as a top option behind Nick Bosa again in 2023.

  • 49ers' Kerry Hyder: Available to play Sunday

    Hyder (ankle) has been ruled active for Sunday's contest against the Raiders.

    Hyder has been managing an ankle injury since the Week 14 win over Tampa Bay, and this issue kept him sidelined for the first time ahead of last week's victory versus Washington. The 31-year-old should now reprise his rotational role behind starting defensive ends Nick Bosa and Samson Ebukam.

  • 49ers' Kerry Hyder: Expected to practice this week

    Hyder (ankle) is expected to practice during Week 17 prep, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

    Hyder missed his first game of the season in Week 16 due to an ankle injury he picked up during the team's Week 14 win over Tampa Bay. If the undrafted defensive end out of Texas Tech is able to log a full practice Wednesday, he'll have a good chance of suiting up Sunday against Las Vegas.

  • 49ers' Kerry Hyder: Won't play Week 16

    Hyder (ankle) has been deemed inactive ahead of Saturday's game versus the Commanders, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Hyder will miss his first game of the season due to a lingering ankle injury picked up during the Week 14 win over Tampa Bay. The seventh-year defensive end has played a rotational role for San Francisco's dangerous pass rush this season. With Drake Jackson (coach's decision) also inactive Saturday, Charles Omenihu and Jordan Willis should be in line for increased usage behind Nick Bosa and Samson Ebukam.

  • 49ers' Kerry Hyder: Good to go for TNF

    Hyder (ankle) has been ruled active ahead of Thursday's game against the Seahawks.

    Hyder logged two tackles while playing his usual share of defensive snaps during Sunday's win over Tampa Bay, but he came away from this contest with an ankle injury. However, this won't keep him from suiting up despite the quick turnaround heading into Thursday Night Football. Expect Hyder to continue slotting into a reserve role behind starting defensive ends Nick Bosa and Samson Ebukam.
