  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Makes big plays in first start

    Cashman recorded five tackles, defensed two passes, recovered a fumble and had an interception in Sunday's 37-17 win over the Jaguars in Week 3.

    Cashman, who missed Week 1 due to a hamstring injury and was limited to special teams only Week 2, made his first start and saw his first action on defense Sunday. The Texans' defense needed some plays, and the veteran responded with two turnovers that the offense turned into 10 points.

  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Good to go Sunday

    Cashman (hamstring) was left off the Texans' injury report ahead of Sunday's game against Indianapolis.

    The 27-year-old has had enough time to move past his hamstring injury, as he participated in full during Friday's practice. Cashman projects to play as a rotational outside linebacker for Houston's defense in Sunday's contest.

  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Out Week 1 due to hamstring

    Cashman (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's season opener against the Ravens, Jonathan Alexander of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Cashman being declared out isn't surprising considering he was unable to practice in any capacity during the week. Injuries have frequently set the 27-year-old linebacker back, as Cashman has been limited to 30 appearances over the previous four seasons.

  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Looking unlikely for Week 1

    Cashman (hamstring) is not practicing Monday and is not expected to play Sunday at Baltimore, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Cashman has been dealing with a hamstring injury since mid-August, and it appears that he may miss Houston's regular-season opener as a result. The 2019 fifth-round pick could be in line for a starting role when healthy, but until then, Cory Littleton will likely benefit from increased defensive snaps.

  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Dealing with hamstring

    Cashman will not play Saturday against the Dolphins due to a hamstring injury, Coty M. Davis of Sports Illustrated reports.

    Cashman missed the last two practices due to the injury, which a league source said is considered "relatively minor," Aaron Wilson of KPRC2 Houston reports.

  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Secures one-year extension

    The Texans signed Cashman (knee) to a one-year contract extension Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    Cashman will now be tied to Houston through the 2023 season after being traded to the team from the Jets this offseason. The 26-year-old linebacker has been a consistent contributor on special teams while playing a limited defensive role over 10 games this season, recording 13 tackles, one sack and one pass defended. Cashman popped up as a non-participant with a knee injury on Wednesday's injury report, so he could be in jeopardy of missing just his second game of the season Sunday versus the Browns.

  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Clear of injury report Wednesday

    Cashman (concussion) was not listed on the Texans' practice report Wednesday.

    Cashman was ruled out for Houston's win over Jacksonville on Oct. 9 after sustaining a concussion in the previous week's game. However, the outside linebacker appears to have cleared protocols following the team's Week 6 bye, which would make him available for Sunday against the Raiders. Cashman has recorded six tackles and one pass defended while playing 37 of his 106 snaps on defense this season.

  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Won't play Sunday

    Cashman (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's contest against the Jaguars.

    Cashman was diagnosed with a concussion during the team's Week 4 loss to the Chargers and didn't practice at all ahead of Week 5. The 2019 fifth-round pick had played only 37 defensive snaps over the past three weeks, so his absence shouldn't have a major impact on Houston's defense, though Garret Wallow may see a few extra snaps after playing a season-high 20 defensive plays against the Chargers.

  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Doesn't participate in walkthrough

    Cashman (concussion) was listed as a non-participant during Wednesday's walkthrough, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Cashman was ruled out for the remainder of the team's Week 4 loss to the Chargers after suffering a concussion and remained sidelined for the team's first practice ahead of Week 5. If he's unable to clear concussion protocols before Sunday, Neville Hewitt would be a likely candidate to step into an expanded role against Jacksonville.

  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Stays out Sunday

    Cashman (head) is downgraded to out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Chargers.

    Cashman was pulled from Sunday's contest to be evaluated for a potential concussion, though it's unclear if he was officially diagnosed with one. With the fourth-year linebacker out, Neville Hewitt figures to see increased usage against the Chargers.

  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Being evaluated

    Cashman has exited Sunday's game against the Chargers to be evaluated for a concussion.

    Cashman is considered questionable to return. However, if he did suffer a concussion he'll certainly be out for the remainder of the game. He had recorded one tackle in Sunday's contest before suffering the injury.

  • Texans' Blake Cashman: Drawing praise at practice

    Coach Lovie Smith said Wednesday that Cashman has "come from nowhere" during training camp.

    Smith's comments suggest Cashman has put the groin injury that kept him out of the last 10 games of the 2021 season behind him. Despite having drafted Alabama's Christian Harris in the third round of this year's draft, the rebuilding Texans don't necessarily have an excess of talent at linebacker behind Christian Kirksey and Kamu Grugier-Hill, meaning Cashman has a legitimate shot to see a notable role in 2022.
