Records eight stops against Colts

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-18

Perryman logged eight tackles (five solo) in Sunday's Week 2 loss to Indianapolis.

Perryman finished behind M.J. Stewart for the team lead in tackles. Perryman played every defensive snap for the Texans and has been a steady presence so far in his first season with Houston. The veteran linebacker has tallied 19 stops (11 solo) through the first two weeks of the campaign.

Cleared from injury report

Perryman (ankle) was able to log a full practice Thursday.

Perryman was limited in practice Wednesday, but any concerns of him potentially missing Sunday's game against the Colts can be disregarded for now. The veteran linebacker logged double-digit tackles in Week 1 and will work to post another productive outing for Week 2.

Limited participant in practice

Perryman (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday.

Perryman popped up on the injury report with an ankle injury after logging 11 tackles (six solo) during the team's Week 1 loss to the Ravens. If the 30-year-old is unable to play versus the Colts on Sunday, the Texans will likely turn to Henry To'oTo'o to start at middle linebacker.

Double-digit tackles in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Perryman recorded 11 tackles in Sunday's 25-9 loss at Baltimore.

Perryman led Houston linebackers in snaps with 56 and made good on ample opportunities to defend the run in what was eventually a 16-point loss. In Week 2, the Texans are set to play host to Indianapolis, which should also be relatively reliant on its run game.

Picks off Tua in preseason loss

Perryman recorded four tackles and an interception in Saturday's preseason loss to Miami.

Perryman continued his strong preseason play when he picked off Tua Tagovailoa on the first play from scrimmage, setting up Houston inside the Dolphins' 10. The Texans were thwarted on downs. Perryman had a sack and four tackles in last week's preseason opener against New England.

Logs sack Thursday

Perryman had four tackles and one sack in Thursday's preseason game against the Patriots.

Perryman's sack forced New England to kick a field goal after the Patriots had intercepted C.J. Stroud on Houston's end of the field. Entering his ninth season, Perryman is expected to start at middle linebacker for Houston.

Returns to practice Tuesday

Perryman (shoulder) participated Tuesday at OTAs, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Perryman wasn't practicing to start OTAs while rehabbing from offseason labrum surgery, but he appears to be in the final stages of his recovery and should be good to go for training camp. The veteran linebacker recorded 237 tackles in 27 games across two seasons with Las Vegas before signing a one-year deal with Houston this offseason.

Recovering from labrum surgery

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-05-23

Perryman is recovering from offseason labrum surgery and didn't practice Tuesday at OTAs, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Perryman recorded 237 tackles over 27 games in two seasons with Las Vegas, but he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in Week 16 last year. He agreed to a one-year deal with the Texans this offseason and presumably had to pass a physical, but he remains sidelined to start Houston's offseason program. It's unclear when he'll be able to play again, but whenever he's healthy, the veteran linebacker figures to compete for a sizable role in the Texans' defense.
