His addition to the Cardinals' practice squad indicates that he has worked past the injury and will await an opportunity to be called up to the active roster. The 2021 sixth-round pick played in all 17 games for the Texans last season and registered 36 tackles (20 solo) and one sack.

  • Roy Lopez: Waived/injured by Texans

    Houston will waive/injured Lopez due to a strained hamstring, and the two sides are expected to reach an injury settlement, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Wilson suffered the hamstring strain in Houston's second preseason game, but he's said to have avoided a major injury and could be ready to return the field in the next 2-to-3 weeks. However, the Texans have nonetheless decided to place him on waivers with the waived/injured designation, which means he'll likely end up on IR. At that point, the two sides are expected to negotiate an injury settlement, which would allow Lopez to seek an opportunity with a new team.

  • Texans' Roy Lopez: Works into rotation

    Lopez has worked himself into the defensive-line rotation, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

    Lopez, Houston's sixth-round pick in 2021, has been rotating with players that appear to be roster locks. He had sacks in each of the first two preseason games. "He's jumped into a group of guys as a rookie with some veteran guys that know how to practice and know how to play, and he has fell right in there," Houston head coach David Culley said. With the switch to a 4-3 defense, there are more opportunities for interior linemen.
