  • Panthers' Shaquill Griffin: Claimed by Panthers

    Griffin was claimed off waivers by the Panthers on Thursday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

    The move came a day after Griffin was released by the Texans. Griffin started six games for Houston and recorded 33 tackles, four passes defensed and an interception, but he lost his role to second-year cornerback Derek Stingley in recent weeks. The seventh-year veteran should start off as a depth corner for the Panthers.

  • Shaquill Griffin: Cut from team

    Griffin was waived by the Texans on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Griffin recorded 33 tackles and one interception on the season, but he eventually was cut out of defensive reps and has solely played on special teams for the last two weeks. The veteran cornerback was starting for the bulk of the season but later lost his role to second-year cornerback Derek Stingley, who returned off injured reserve and now has recorded back-to-back games with interceptions.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Snags first pick of the season

    Griffin logged five tackles (two solo), an interception and a pass deflection in Sunday's 30-27 win over the Bengals.

    Griffin came up big for the Texans, intercepting Joe Burrow in the end zone late in the fourth quarter. The 28-year-old hadn't recorded an interception before Sunday's since 2020, and he'll look to produce once again when the team takes on the Cardinals next week.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Back to full speed Thursday

    Griffin (calf) was a full participant at practice Thursday.

    Griffin was sidelined during Sunday's loss at Atlanta due to a calf injury he presumably sustained during practice last week, but it now looks like he should be good to go for Week 6. He figures to step back into a starting role Sunday versus New Orleans.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Ruled out Sunday

    Griffin (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

    Griffin sustained a calf injury in practice during the week. His absence for Week 5 along with Tavierre Thomas (coach's decision) means the Texans' secondary will rely on corners Steven Nelson, Ka'dar Hollman and Grayland Arnold.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Dealing with calf injury

    Griffin (calf) was a limited participant at practice Thursday.

    Griffin is coming off a Week 5 win over the Steelers in which he led Houston's corners in snaps (53), so he likely picked up the injury during practice this week. It's unclear whether he's in danger of missing time, but if he can't manage a full practice Friday, he'll likely carry an injury designation into the weekend.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Now questionable for Sunday

    Griffin (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Atlanta.

    After apparently sustaining a calf injury at practice during the week, Griffin is now in danger of missing his first game of the season in Week 5. Either way, with Steven Nelson, Tavierre Thomas and Grayland Arnold healthy, Houston should have a fighting chance to contain a Falcons passing attack that hasn't been very good through four games this year.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Double-digit tackles Sunday

    Griffin recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 37-17 win at Jacksonville.

    Griffin stepped in as a starter only after Derek Stingley (hamstring) was placed on Houston's injured reserve list, and he made the most of his expanded role off the bat. He tied for the team lead in tackles in Week 3, and at least for now looks like a worthy fill-in for his injured teammate.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Stepping in as starter

    Griffin is expected to take over the Texans' starting role at left cornerback with Derek Stingley (hamstring) placed on IR on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Click2Houston reports.

    Stingley's injury is considered a serious one, and he's expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks. Griffin is thus slated to be the next man up at outside corner, where he has plenty of experience over a seven-year career that includes a Pro Bowl berth while with Seattle in 2019. The 28-year-old was released by Jacksonville this past March after injuries limited him to just five games last season, but he appears fully healthy now despite dealing with a back injury during OTAs in June.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Healthy again

    Griffin (back) was seen breaking up a pass at Texans camp Thursday, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Griffin missed some of OTAs with a back issue but has since had time to get past the issue. The veteran cornerback joined Houston this offseason after four years in Seattle and two in Jacksonville. Throughout his career, the Central Florida product has recorded 327 tackles, 59 pass breakups and six interceptions. Expect the one-time Pro Bowler to start alongside second-year corner Derek Stingley ahead of the coming season.

  • Texans' Shaquill Griffin: Dealing with back issue

    Griffin didn't participate Tuesday at OTAs due to a back injury, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    The severity of the issue is unclear, but further information should become available as the offseason progresses. Griffin signed a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Texans in May and when healthy should compete with Steven Nelson for the starting corner spot opposite Derek Stingley (hamstring) in Houston's secondary.
