Lands on IR

Stewart (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Stewart suffered a fractured shoulder in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers and was expected to be out long-term, so his move to IR does not come as a surprise. He'll now be forced to miss at least the next four games, but a longer recovery time could be needed for the North Carolina product.

Suffers long-term injury

Stewart's shoulder injury is expected to require a long-term recovery, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Stewart stepped in for the injured Jimmie Ward (hamstring) this past Sunday before suffering a shoulder injury of his own. The 28-year-old safety has appeared in eight games for the Texans this year, recording 22 total tackles and one forced fumble. Stewart could very well end up on injured reserve in the near future.

Needs MRI

Stewart, who left Sunday's 39-37 win over the Buccaneers early with a shoulder injury, will undergo an MRI on Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Stewart exited the game early, after coming in to replace Jimmie Ward who suffered a hamstring injury. The former had his arm in a sling afterward and appears in danger of missing time moving forward. With Steward and Ward likely to be questionable or worse for Week 10 against the Bengals, DeAndre Houston-Carson may be in for a big role in the contest.

Will not return

Stewart (shoulder) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Stewart stepped in at strong safety after Jimmie Ward suffered a hamstring injury earlier in the game, and now both will not return. DeAndre Houston-Carson has taken their place in the secondary.

Stewart (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against Buccaneers.

Stewart stepped in for an injured Jimmy Ward (hamstring), who's also listed as questionable to return. The 28-year-old recorded three total tackles before leaving the game, and DeAndre Houston-Carson is in at safety for the time being.

Sees big snap reduction

Stewart recorded no tackles while playing four snaps on defense and 22 on special teams in the Texans' 37-17 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

After recording 10 tackles and a forced fumble while playing every snap on defense in the Texans' Week 2 loss to the Colts, Stewart moved back into a reserve role Sunday with Eric Murray and Jimmie Ward making their returns from injury. Though he played only four snaps on defense Week 3, Stewart's role could become further reduced Sunday against the Steelers if fellow safety Jalen Pitre (chest) is able to return from a two-game absence.

Returns to Houston

Stewart signed a contract with the Texans on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Stewart joined the Texans in 2022 and played as a backup safety while also contributing plenty on special teams. In total, he tallied 41 tackles and one pass defended to go along with one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries.

Clears concussion protocol

Stewart (concussion) does not carry an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

Stewart was forced to exit Houston's Week 16 win over Tennessee after taking a blow to the head that resulted in a concussion. However, he appears to have cleared the league's protocols and has practiced in full the last two days. Stewart will return to a depth role in the Texans' secondary while also shouldering a heavy load on special teams.
