Kahale Warring: Prepping for 2020

Warring (concussion) spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve, but he regularly attended meetings and watched practices, John McClain of The Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: The third-round pick caught just 51 passes in three seasons at San Diego State, eventually vaulting to Day 2 of the 2019 draft on the basis of his impressive workout numbers, including a 4.61 40-yard dash and 36.5-inch vertical (at 6-5, 252 pounds). Warring then suffered a hamstring injury and a concussion in mid-August, and he was placed on injured reserve a few weeks later. He likely regained his health at some point during the season, but an IR stash was rather convenient for the Texans. With Warring, Jordan Akins (hamstring) and Jordan Thomas all under contract for at least two more seasons, it isn't clear if the team will make an honest effort to re-sign Darren Fells, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March and will then celebrate his 34th birthday in April.

Kahale Warring: Not yet practicing

Warring (concussion) wasn't participating at practice Wednesday, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Warring is now eligible to resume practicing for a potential return off injured reserve but he has yet to retake the field. It's unclear if the 22-year-old has cleared the concussion protocol since landing on IR prior to Week 1.

Kahale Warring: Put on IR

The Texans placed Warring (concussion) on injured reserve Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Warring has been contending with a concussion since training camp, which held him out of all preseason action. With this move, he likely hasn't made many strides in the protocol for head injuries in the meantime. Both Warring and Jordan Thomas (ribs) were put on IR, which forced the Texans to ink veteran Logan Paulsen to bolster the tight end ranks.

Kahale Warring: Not clear of concussion

Coach Bill O'Brien said Friday that Warring remains in the concussion protocol, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Warring suffered the concussion a couple weeks ago and has yet to clear the concussion protocol. The rookie-third round pick was unable to play in any preseason games and has no clear timetable for his return.

Kahale Warring: Still not practicing

Warring (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Warring remains in the concussion protocol due to a head injury suffered prior to Houston's first preseason game. When back to full health, the rookie third-round pick will resume competing for snaps with fellow tight ends Jordan Thomas, Jordan Akins and Darren Fells.

Kahale Warring: Nursing concussion

Warring is in the concussion protocol Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Warring will need to fully clear the league-mandated protocol before appearing in preseason action. The rookie tight end is competing with Jordan Thomas, Jordan Akins and Darren Fells for meaningful snaps.

Kahale Warring: Nursing hamstring injury

Warring suffered a hamstring injury during a joint practice with Green Bay, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: The severity of Warring's injury is unclear at this point, but he hasn't been able to return to practice since. He'll need to regain his health soon to have a chance at making the 53-man roster.

Kahale Warring: Removed from NFI list

Warring (undisclosed) was taken off the Texans' non-football injury list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Warring opened training camp on the NFI list, but now appears to have fully recovered from his unspecified strain. The rookie-third round pick will compete for snaps with Jordan Thomas, Jordan Akins and Darren Fells.

Kahale Warring: Should be back soon

Coach Bill O'Brien expects Warring (undisclosed) to be ready for practice soon, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Warring opens training camp on the non-football injury list due to an unspecified strain he picked up during his personal workouts over the summer. The rookie third-round pick is an impressive athlete, but he'll have a hard time earning immediate snaps over Jordan Thomas, Jordan Akins and Darren Fells.

Kahale Warring: Lands on NFI list

Warring (undisclosed) was placed on Houston's Non-Football Injury list Sunday, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: It's unclear what the injury is that called for Warring's placement on the NFI list, as he didn't have an injury designation when the Texans selected him in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft in late April. The injury comes at an unfortunate time for the San Diego State product, as he battles Ryan Griffin and Jordan Thomas -- who each worked their way into Houston's passing attack by the end of last season -- for a consistent role in the offense.
