Coming off of a spectacular showing this past weekend, Texans linebacker, Hawaii’s Kamu Grugier-Hill will not play in Thursday’s game against the Panthers.
The Kamehameha graduate was listed as inactive with a knee injury.
After appearing on Monday’s practice estimate as limited with a knee injury, Grugier-Hill did not practice on Tuesday and Wednesday. Joe Thomas is expected to take on a larger share of snaps at linebacker in Grugier-Hill’s absence.
In Sunday’s loss to Cleveland, Grugier-Hill who played despite not practicing at the end of the week, recorded 9 tackles with three tackles for loss and a sack. The nine tackle effort was second best in his career behind recording 10 tackles against the Cowboys as a member of the Eagles in 2018.
Grugier-Hill agreed to a one-year contract in the offseason with Houston worth up to $3.25 million after posting 28 tackles with the Dolphins last season.
