Texans Place DE Christian Covington On Injured Reserve

The Houston Texans officially placed DE Christian Covington on injured reserve on Tuesday.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Monday that Covington was out for the season after suffering a torn bicep during Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks, so this doesn’t come as a big surprise.

The Texans continue to lose players in their front seven, as they’re already without DE J.J. Watt and OLB Whitney Mercilus.

Covington, 24, is a former sixth-round pick of the Texans back in 2015. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2,370,484 contract and stands to make base salaries of $615,000 and $705,000 over the final two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Covington appeared in seven games for the Texans and recorded 16 tackles, one sack, and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 29 interior defender out of 117 qualifying players.
