  • Texans' Derek Stingley: Placed on IR

    The Texans placed Stingley (hamstring) on injured reserve Saturday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Stingley sustained the injury during practice Wednesday. By being placed on IR, he'll be forced to miss at least four games, though Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reported Saturday that the injury is expected to shelve Stingley for 6-to-8 weeks. Shaquill Griffin -- who has played just six defensive snaps in two games this season -- is expected to assume a starting role opposite Steven Nelson while Stingley is out.

  • Texans' Derek Stingley: Expected to be placed on IR

    Stingley (hamstring) is expected to land on injured reserve, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Stingley is expected to be sidelined six-to-eight weeks due to a hamstring injury. IR only requires a four-week stay, so he would be eligible to return once he returns to health. In his absence, Shaquill Griffin is a candidate to replace him at cornerback opposite Steven Nelson, while Ka'dar Hollman, Alex Austin and Grayland Arnold could also see increased reps.

  • Texans' Derek Stingley: Not suiting up at Jacksonville

    Stingley (hamstring) is listed as out for Sunday's game at the Jaguars.

    Stingley was rumored to be on his way to the injured reserve list earlier in the week, so it's not a shock that he'll sit out in Week 3. Grayland Arnold should see an uptick in reps in his absence.

  • Texans' Derek Stingley: Suffers injury

    Stingley suffered a hamstring injury during practice Wednesday, DJ Bien-Aime of reports.

    Stingley is now expected to miss Sunday's game against the Jaguars, with Shaquill Griffin likely to get the start at corner in his place. This is another difficult blow to a Texans' secondary which has been ravaged by injuries to start the season -- Tavierre Thomas (hand), Jalen Pitre (chest), Jimmie Ward (hip) and Eric Murray (concussion) are all questionable or worse for Week 3.

  • Texans' Derek Stingley: Likely heading to IR

    Stingley (hamstring) is expected to miss several weeks and be placed on injured reserve, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    The second-year corner suffered a hamstring injury during the final play of practice Wednesday and has already had an MRI to determine the severity. Stingley has not officially been ruled out of Houston's Week 3 contest against Jacksonville, but all signs are pointing to the LSU product missing a handful of weeks.

  • Texans' Derek Stingley: Participating in OTAs

    Stingley (hamstring) is participating in the Texans' OTAs this week, Brian Barefield of Texans Wire reports.

    Stingley's rookie year came to an end when he was injured in Week 10 last season. The No. 3 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Stingley looked the part in the first half of the season, serving as Houston's top cover corner. He should be poised for a second-year leap under new coach DeMeco Ryans.
