Texans RT Tytus Howard returns, G Kendrick Green to IR

The Houston Texans designated right tackle Tytus Howard for return from injured reserve Wednesday but placed starting left guard Kendrick Green on IR with a knee injury.

Howard missed the first four games on IR with a broken hand.

Pro Bowl left tackle Laremy Tunsil also returned to practice Wednesday after missing the past three games with pain and swelling in his knee.

The Texans may shift Howard to guard in place of the injured Green while keeping George Fant at RT, according to KPRC2 Houston.

The Texans have 21 days to activate Howard to the 53-man roster. He broke his hand during training camp, an injury that required surgery to insert two metal pins.

Green tore his meniscus and is expected to undergo season-ending surgery. He injured his right knee in Sunday’s 30-6 win over the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers, which helped Houston improve to 2-2.

Fellow OL Josh Jones practiced Wednesday with a club on his hand after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament, per KPRC2. He missed last week’s game and is expected to miss this Sunday’s game at Atlanta.

The Texans acquired Green from the Steelers on Aug. 29 for a 2025 sixth-round pick after Houston’s starting left guard, 2022 first-round pick Kenyon Green, suffered a season-ending shoulder injury during the preseason.

Howard has started all 54 games he has played since the Texans selected him with the 23rd overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Alabama State.

Howard, 27, signed a three-year, $56 million extension in July that reportedly included $36.5 million guaranteed.

In other moves Wednesday, the Texans also opened the practice window for punter Cameron Johnston and released interim P Ty Zentner.

The Texans also signed DE Derek Rivers to the active roster from the practice squad, restored S Brandon Hill to the practice squad and signed DT Taylor Stallworth to the practice squad.

Eagles to wear home green jerseys in Super Bowl LVII

The Philadelphia Eagles will be wearing their green jerseys when they take the field against the Kansas City Chiefs for Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Ariz.

The Eagles were given the choice of jersey color given that they are designated as the home team for the game on Feb. 12.

Wearing green on the NFL’s grandest stage is nothing new for Philadelphia, which has selected that jersey color in its three previous Super Bowl appearances. They were unsuccessful in green in both Super Bowl XV versus the then-Oakland Raiders and the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX, however they emerged victorious against New England in Super Bowl LII.

The Chiefs will be wearing white jerseys in the Super Bowl for the second time in their history. They were unsuccessful in that color against the Green Bay Packers in the very first Super Bowl.

Kansas City wore red in wins over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV and the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV. They also wore that color in a setback to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.

Seven Michigan State players charged in Michigan tunnel fracas

Seven Michigan State players were charged with crimes on Wednesday after the assault of two Michigan players following the Oct. 29 game between the two schools, the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office announced.

Spartans cornerback Khary Crump was charged with one count of felonious assault, stemming from video showing him hitting Michigan defensive back Gemon Green in the head with a helmet during the incident at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.

Green reportedly sustained a concussion and his family expressed the desire to pursue charges.

Michigan State defensive end Jacoby Windmon was charged with one count of misdemeanor assault and battery. Windmon was shown in the same video as Crump.

Five Michigan State players were charged with misdemeanor aggravated assault. They are linebacker Itayvion Brown, safety Angelo Grose, cornerback Justin White, defensive end Brandon Wright and defensive end Zion Young. The video showed a group of players hitting and kicking Michigan defensive back Ja’Den McBurrows while he was on the ground.

The seven Michigan State players were suspended by the school. Cornerback Malcolm Jones also was suspended but he was not charged on Wednesday.

“At the University of Michigan we appreciate the thoughtful, deliberate approach from the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office to this unfortunate incident,” Michigan president Santa J. Ono said in a statement. “We also want to express our concern for all the players involved, especially those who were injured. The University of Michigan will continue to cooperate fully with any additional reviews of this matter.”

The prosecutor’s office expressed that “charges are merely allegations.”

It said it received investigation results from the University of Michigan Division of Public Safety and Security. The Michigan State University Police Department and the Michigan State Police assisted in the investigation.

No Michigan players were charged in the incident.

Michigan State didn’t immediately release a statement on the charges.

The Wolverines won the game 29-7.

Center Rodney Hudson was traded from the Las Vegas Raiders to the Arizona Cardinals for a third-round pick on Wednesday, according to multiple reports.

Hudson was informed he would be released earlier in the week, but the Raiders reconsidered when the Cardinals increased their trade offer to a third-rounder, NFL Network reported. The Cardinals announced the move and said the terms of the deal include a seventh-round pick being returned from the Raiders.

A three-time Pro Bowl pick, Hudson turns 32 in July and twice was awarded with contracts from the Raiders that made him the highest-paid player at the position. That includes a three-year, $33.75 million extension with the Raiders in August 2019.

Hudson missed only one game the past five seasons. He joined the Raiders in 2015 as an unrestricted free agent after four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Cardinals have been busy adding veterans with name value.

Also on Wednesday, Arizona agreed to a one-year deal with wide receiver A.J. Green worth up to $8.5 million with $6 million guaranteed, ESPN reported.

Green, 32, struggled to regain his form last season after making the Pro Bowl in his first seven seasons in Cincinnati. He had 47 catches for 523 yards with two touchdowns in 2020.

Earlier in the month, Arizona made a major splash with the addition of defensive lineman J.J. Watt. Watt requested his release from the Houston Texans and chose to sign a two-year, $31 million deal with the Cardinals.
