  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Ready to go for divisional round

    Perryman (ribs) does not carry an injury designation into Saturday's divisional-round matchup with the Ravens.

    Perryman suffered an injury to his ribs in the Texans' wild-card round win over the Browns and he was limited at the team's three practices this week, but he appears to be ready to go for the divisional round. The middle linebacker recorded three solo tackles before exiting Houston's victory over Cleveland, and he'll look to return to form with a full workload in Baltimore.

    Perryman's rib injury is not considered to be serious and he's expected to return for the divisional round, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Perryman exited the Texans' wild-card win over the Browns with a ribs injury, but it seems as if this issue won't hinder his availability going forward.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Suspension reduced

    The NFL announced Wednesday that Perryman had his three-game suspension reduced to two games following an appeal.

After having his suspension reduced, Perryman will now miss games Week 11 against the Cardinals and Week 12 against the Jaguars before returning to action Week 13 versus the Broncos.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Handed down suspension

    Perryman was suspended by the NFL on Tuesday for three games due to repeated violations of playing rules intended to protect the health and safety of players, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Perryman's suspension comes after he lowered his head and delivered a blow to Ja'Marr Chase in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over the Bengals, which resulted in a flag for unnecessary roughness. Due to having received six violations for this rule in his career, including in Week 2 of this season, Vice President of Football Operations Jon Runyan handed down the suspension. Perryman can appeal the suspension, but it's not yet known if he will. While the 30-year-old is out of action, Henry To'oTo'o, Christian Harris and Blake Cashman should be the Texans' primary options at linebacker.

    Perryman registered nine tackles (six solo), including half a sack, in Houston's 15-13 loss to the Panthers on Sunday.

    Perryman missed the team's previous game with a hand injury and was productive in his return, as led the team in tackles while also getting to the quarterback for the first time this season. The 2015 second-round pick now has 30 tackles (18 solo) in four games and will look to add to those totals versus Tampa Bay next week.
