Texans ILB Benardrick McKinney left Sunday's win over the Titans with a concussion. He'll have a short week to pass through the league protocol, with Houston visiting the Buccaneers at 1 p.m. Saturday. Don't expect to have McKinney available for IDP use.
Texans LB Benardrick McKinney is questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns with a hip injury. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning for a limited workout Friday. HC Bill O'Brien said earlier in the week that he expected McKinney to play. We'll see about his status come Sunday.
The Texans traded up in Round 2 to draft LB Benardrick McKinney, who brings terrific size and tested great at the Scouting Combine. The problem -- at least as far as we're concerned -- is that McKinney doesn't look like that guy on tape. He's slow to the ball and doesn't appear very instinctive. Perhaps the Texas A&M scheme limited, but we're not excited about McKinney's IDP prospects. Initially, he also might need to fight Brian Cushing for 3-down duties. Don't expect McKinney to land very high in our dynasty rookie rankings.
