  • Texans' Will Anderson: Bulks up for Year 2

    Anderson said Thursday that he's added 15 pounds without losing any speed entering training camp, Jonathan M. Alexander of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Anderson was listed at 6-foot-4, 243 pounds as a rookie, and if he's indeed reached above the 255-pound mark without sacrificing any burst, the reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year could enter 2024 as a more dominant pass-rusher. He notched tallied seven sacks and 45 tackles despite missing two games as a rookie, and playing only 590 defensive snaps, a role which seems sure to expand Year 2. The Texans also added Danielle Hunter and Denico Autry this offseason, positioning the team's pass-rush as a whole to take a step forward.

  • Noah Brown WR | HOU

    Texans' Noah Brown: Gets green light for camp

    Brown (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation and has been fully cleared for the start of training camp Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Brown missed the Texans' divisional-round playoff loss to the Ravens in January with a shoulder injury and eventually required offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum. The wideout has completed the recovery process and looks like he'll enter camp without any restrictions. Though staying healthy proved difficult for Brown, he was a productive secondary target in the Houston passing attack when available in 2023, finishing the regular season with 33 catches for 567 yards and two touchdowns on 55 targets over 10 games.

  • Zach Tom OT | GB

    Packers' Zach Tom: Starts camp on PUP list

    The Packers placed Tom (pectoral) on the active/PUP list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Tom has been rehabbing the pectoral injury for most of the offseason and isn't yet ready for contact. He started all 19 games -- including the playoffs -- last season and is penciled in as the Packers' top right tackle for 2024.

  • Kitan Oladapo SAF | GB

    Packers' Kitan Oladapo: Starting camp on NFI list

    The Packers placed Oladapo (toe) on the active/NFI list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    The fifth-round rookie was in a walking boot last month after breaking his toe at the NFL Scouting Combine and had said he planned to be ready for training camp. He's likely close to 100 percent, but the Packers want to give Oladapo a little more time to heal. He can be activated at any time during training camp or the preseason.

  • Bears' Kiran Amegadjie: Starting camp on NFI list

    The Bears placed Amegadjie (quadricep) on the active/NFI list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Amegadjie was injured prior to the 2024 NFL Draft and missed all of OTAs and minicamp after the Bears selected him in the third round. It's hard to envision Amegadjie pushing Braxton Jones or Darnell Wright for a starting job at offensive tackle this summer after all of the missed reps.

  • Texans' Del'Shawn Phillips: Starting camp on PUP

    The Texans placed Phillips (shoulder) on the active/PUP list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    The 27-year-old played in all 17 regular-season games for Baltimore last season, but he missed both playoff contests with a shoulder injury that apparently still isn't 100 percent healthy. Phillips signed a one-year deal with Houston in the offseason and will serve as a depth linebacker while filling a key role on special teams.

  • D'Angelo Ross CB | HOU

    Texans' D'Angelo Ross: Opens camp on PUP list

    The Texans placed Ross on the active/PUP list Wednesday with an undisclosed injury, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    The 27-year-old appeared in 13 games for Houston in 2023, serving as a key fixture on the Texans' special-teams units, where he played 258 snaps. The reserve defensive back is eligible to be activated from the PUP list once he's deemed ready to practice.

  • LaDarius Henderson: Waived by Houston

    The Texans waived Henderson with a non-football injury designation Wednesday while he's scheduled to undergo foot surgery last this week, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    The Texans selected Henderson in the seventh round of April's draft, but the offensive lineman from Michigan won't even make it to training camp with Houston. If he clears waivers, the Texans would have the ability to place Henderson on injured reserve.

  • Laremy Tunsil OT | HOU

    Texans' Laremy Tunsil: Healthy for start of camp

    Tunsil (knee) is fully healthy for the start of training camp, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Tunsil underwent an offseason knee scope in February, which typically comes with a recovery timeline of 4-to-6 weeks. With Tunsil now well removed from surgery, he's expected to be available to participate in preseason games, even if the Texans take it slow with their starting left tackle early in training camp.

  • Joe Thuney OG | KC

    Chiefs' Joe Thuney: Opens camp on active/PUP

    The Chiefs placed Thuney (pectoral) on the active/PUP list Wednesday.

    After getting injured during the divisional round of the playoffs last season, Thuney missed the AFC Championship and the Super Bowl for Kansas City. Head coach Andy Reid had previously said that Thuney is expected to be cleared to play in advance of the Chiefs' Week 1 game against Baltimore. He's eligible to be activated from the PUP list at any time this summer.
