Fewer tackles in second season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-25

Pitre had 84 tackles, five passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery over 15 games in 2023.

Pitre had to adjust to new coaches and a new scheme in 2023 and didn't come near the 147 tackles he recorded as a rookie in 2022. He was even benched during the second half of the Week 16 game against the Browns. Despite the drop in tackles, Pitre earned better coverage grades during his second season, per Pro Football Focus. The 2022 second-round draft pick has two years remaining on his rookie deal and should return as a starter at safety.

Second-most tackles in win

Pitre had seven tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 26-3 win over the Titans.

Pitre finished second on the Texans defense in tackles behind Desmond King. Pitre played every single defensive snap for the 10th time this season. The 2022 second-round pick out of Baylor has 77 tackles (54 solo), five passes defended, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over 14 games this season.

Solid performance in loss

Pitre tallied eight tackles (seven solo) during the Texans' 30-6 loss to the Jets on Sunday.

Pitre finished second on the team in tackles Sunday and has now logged at least six tackles in each of the past four games. The 24-year-old will look to keep producing during Houston's upcoming matchup with the Titans.

Productive in close loss

Pitre recorded nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 24-21 loss versus the Jaguars.

It's the best tackle total Pitre has managed since Week 5 at Atlanta. It's been a relatively disappointing season for him so far after he posted impressive numbers as a rookie in 2022, but the Broncos could prove to be a favorable matchup for him in Week 13.

Big day in loss

Pitre tallied 11 total tackles (seven solo), one pass deflection and one fumble recovery during the Texans' 21-19 loss to the Falcons this Sunday.

Pitre was productive in his second game back from a chest injury that landed him in the hospital during Houston's Week 1 loss to Baltimore. The 24-year-old was the Texans' second-leading tackler this past Sunday, trailing only Henry To'oTo'o (12 tackles). Pitre seemed to be back at full health as well, playing on 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps. The 2022 second-round pick led Houston in tackles last season and finished fifth in Defensive Rookie of the Year voting, so expect him to continue wreaking havoc for the Texans' defense.

Upgraded to full Thursday

Pitre (chest) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

It's an upgrade for Pitre after he was limited Wednesday. Pitre is looking likely to make his return from a bruised lung suffered in the Week 1 loss to the Ravens.

Gets in limited practice

Pitre (chest) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Pitre is trying to return after missing the last two games with a bruised lung he sustained in Week 1. Veterans M.J. Stewart and Eric Murray have been picking up the slack at safety in Pitre's absence.

Returns to practice Wednesday

Pitre (chest) practiced Wednesday for the first time since suffering a bruised lung in Week 1, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Pitre's hoping to return to action Sunday against the Steelers after missing Houston's past two games. If Pitre's able to play against Pittsburgh, he would likely reclaim the starting free safety role. M.J. Stewart got most of the snaps at the position in Week 2, while Eric Murray took over for most of Week 3.

Back at practice

Pitre (chest) returned to practice Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Pitre missed the past two games after sustaining a bruised lung injury in Week 1 against the Ravens. Whether he will be able to return for their Week 4 contest against the Steelers will depend on his practice participation in the upcoming week.
