  • Chargers' Denzel Perryman: Links back up with Bolts

    Perry agreed to sign a one-year, $3 million deal with the Chargers on Sunday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.

    Perryman will rejoin the team for which he played during the first six seasons of his career. The 31-year-old popped in his first season after leaving the Chargers, tallying a career-high 154 tackles en route to his first career Pro Bowl campaign with the Raiders in 2021. His production came back down to earth in both of the last two seasons, as he tallied 83 tackles with the Raiders in 2022 before logging 76 tackles with the Texans in 2023. The 5-foot-11 inside linebacker also appeared in just 12 regular-season games during each of those campaigns. Perryman should provide a solid veteran presence for the Chargers, as the team currently includes two rather unproven inside linebackers in Nick Niemann and Daiyan Henley.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Ready to go for divisional round

    Perryman (ribs) does not carry an injury designation into Saturday's divisional-round matchup with the Ravens.

    Perryman suffered an injury to his ribs in the Texans' wild-card round win over the Browns and he was limited at the team's three practices this week, but he appears to be ready to go for the divisional round. The middle linebacker recorded three solo tackles before exiting Houston's victory over Cleveland, and he'll look to return to form with a full workload in Baltimore.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Avoids serious injury

    Perryman's rib injury is not considered to be serious and he's expected to return for the divisional round, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Perryman exited the Texans' wild-card win over the Browns with a ribs injury, but it seems as if this issue won't hinder his availability going forward. The 31-year-old linebacker was able to record three total tackles, including one tackle for loss before exiting Saturday's affair and he'll look to add to those totals next weekend.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Exits wild-card game with rib issue

    Perryman injured his ribs in Saturday's playoff contest against Cleveland and is questionable to return.

    Perryman exited in the second half of the contest, though it's unclear how the injury occurred. The linebacker racked up three tackles early in the first quarter but hadn't posted any more between then and his exit. Neville Hewitt could see more snaps if Perryman is unable to return.

  • Texans' Denzel Perryman: Suspension reduced

    The NFL announced Wednesday that Perryman had his three-game suspension reduced to two games following an appeal.

After having his suspension reduced, Perryman will now miss games Week 11 against the Cardinals and Week 12 against the Jaguars before returning to action Week 13 versus the Broncos. Perryman has totaled 41 tackles and a half sack through six appearances on the season.
