Signed by Jaguars

Warring was signed by Jaguars on Tuesday, joining the team off of the Bills' practice squad.

Analysis: The tight end had been with the Bills' practice squad since the beginning of Nov., but he will join the Jaguars ahead of their matchup with the Patriots in Week 17. With James O'Shaughnessy the last remaining tight end on the Jaguars not on the COVID-19 list, Warring could step right into a larger role for the team Sunday.

Sent back to practice squad

Warring was reverted to the Bills' practice squad Monday.

Analysis: Warring suited up for the Bills Sunday against the Dolphins with Dawson Knox (hand) unable to play. Warring played three snaps and accumulated zero stats. Depending on Knox' status for Week 9, Warring may be called upon again Sunday against the Jaguars.

Elevated for Sunday

Warring has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Analysis: Warring is in line for his first action of the year after bouncing around with several teams in the preseason. He'll back up Tommy Sweeney while Dawson Knox nurses a broken hand.

Waived by Indy

The Colts waived Warring on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Warring spent time with the Texans, Patriots and Colts in the final week of training camp, but he will ultimately not find himself on a 53-man roster to start the season. The 2019 third-round pick appeared in seven games during the 2020 campaign after missing his entire rookie season due to a concussion and hamstring injury.

Lands in Indy

Warring was claimed off waivers by the Colts on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Warring has bounced between the Texans, Patriots and Colts in a span of a week. The 2019 third-round pick caught three passes for 35 yards across seven games last season, his first year after missing his entire rookie campaign with a concussion and hamstring injury.

Let go by New England

Warring has been waived by the Patriots, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Warring's stint with New England was a short one after he was claimed off waivers from the Texans on Tuesday. If he doesn't catch on with another team in the coming days, it's possible the Patriots could consider adding the tight end to their practice squad.

Claimed by Pats

The Patriots claimed Warring off waivers from the Texans on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 2019 third-round pick caught three passes in seven games in his two years with the Texans, struggling to stay healthy despite being buried on the depth chart. Warring isn't a good bet to make it to Week 1 on the active roster, but the Patriots are at least intrigued enough to give him a look. If nothing else, he could stick with the team as a member of the practice squad.

Let go by Texans

Warring was cut by the Texans on Sunday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

Analysis: Warren played just four offensive snaps in Saturday's preseason win over the Cowboys, and he'll part ways with the organization after failing to play a prominent role. The 24-year-old spent his rookie season on injured reserve in 2019 before hauling in three of seven targets for 35 yards last year.

Aug 22, 2021 6:11 PM EST


Untargeted in finale

Warring was not targeted and played seven snaps in Houston's season-ending loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Analysis: Warring saw his first NFL action in 2020 after spending his rookie 2019 season on injured reserve. The Texans like his athleticism -- he was selected in the third round of the 2019 draft -- but he struggled to pick up the offense and played just 52 snaps over seven games. He's under contract through, but a new general manager and head coach may not see the same value that a previous regime did. The Texans also have veterans Jordan Akins and Darren Fells under contract for 2021, so there may be little opportunity for Warring if he is retained next season.

Makes first NFL catch

Warring caught two of two targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: Warring made his first catches in the NFL, including a nice 23-yard grab in tight quarters. "He ran good routes," quarterback Deshaun Watson told John McClain of the Houston Chronicle about Warring. "He's strong with the ball in his hands. He's a guy you have to continue to get reps with and build confidence." The second-year tight end has struggled to pick up the offense, but he hasn't played all that much, so the Texans may try to integrate him more over the final two weeks.

Struggling with offense

Warring is not getting much playing time because he's still learning the offense, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: With the Texans out of playoff contention, the final three games might be a good time to feed Warring, a 2019 third-round draft pick. He missed his entire rookie season while on injured reserve and hasn't been given much opportunity in the three weeks since being added to the active roster. "I think he's a good, young talent," interim head coach Romeo Crennel said. "He's got size (6-5, 252) (and) strength, and he wants to try to be good. He's still learning, and that's the thing you notice. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it could be better." That translates to Warring is still figuring out the offense and needs avoid mental errors.

Limited snap count in loss

Warring was targeted once over six snaps in Sunday's 26-20 loss to Indianapolis.

Analysis: Warring did not see a big uptick in playing time after Pharaoh Brown left the game with a concussion. Instead, the Texans allotted more snaps to Jordan Akins (45) while Warring was on the field for six plays. In the two weeks since coming off injured reserve, Warring has two targets over 10 snaps.

Dec 7, 2020 4:41 AM EST


Targeted in win

Warring played four offensive snaps and was targeted once in Thursday's 41-25 win over Detroit.

Analysis: The Texans dressed four tight ends and threw just 25 times, limiting Warring's opportunities. This was just the second game in two seasons for Warring, who has been dogged by injuries since Houston selected him in the third round of the 2019 draft. As the postseason is unlikely, interim head coach Romeo Crennel may want to experiment and see more of Warring in the final five weeks.

Lifted from IR

The Texans activated Warring (undisclosed) from injured reserve Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Warring will join Jordan Akins, Darren Fells and Pharaoh Brown as the Texans' tight ends. Warring shapes up as the No. 3 out of the bunch, but it's unlikely that he takes any passing down work from Akins or Fells.

Nov 23, 2020 2:38 PM EST


Will be activated for Week 12

The Texans are expected to activate Warring (undisclosed) from injured reserve before Week 12, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: Warring has resided on IR since Week 1, as he dealt with a setback in October but seems poised to return soon. The 2019 second-round pick will usurp Pharaoh Brown as the No. 3 tight end upon return, and his role on offense will be minimal behind Jordan Akins and Darren Fells.

Nov 22, 2020 7:11 AM EST


Receives return designation

Warring (undisclosed) was designated to return from injured reserve Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: The 23-year-old has been on injured reserve since suffering the unspecified injury in the season opener, and the Texans now have a 21-day practice window to activate him. Warring could return for Sunday's game at Jacksonville if he shows well enough in practice this week.

Nov 2, 2020 10:12 AM EST


Out until at least Week 9

Coach Romeo Crennel said Wednesday that he doesn't anticipate evaluating Warring (undisclosed) for a return from IR until after the Texans' Week 8 bye, Drew Dougherty of the Texans' official site reports.

Analysis: Warring has been eligible to return from IR since early October, but it doesn't look as though he's yet very close to fully recovering from his undisclosed injury. The Texans will hope to get the second-year tight end back sometime in November.

Oct 21, 2020 9:15 AM EST


Closing in on return

Coach Bill O'Brien said Monday that Warring (undisclosed) could return from IR soon, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: O'Brien didn't state a specific timeline, but Warring can start practicing Wednesday and is eligible to return this Sunday against the Jaguars. If he does get cleared to play, he may enjoy a heightened role if top tight end Jordan Akins (concussion) is unavailable.

Oct 5, 2020 10:33 AM EST


Will be re-evaluated in three weeks

Coach Bill O'Brein said Wednesday that Warring (undisclosed) has "a couple of things going on injury-wise" and will be re-evaluated in three weeks, Deepi Sidhu of the Texans' official site reports.

Analysis: The Texans will take another look at Warring once he's eligible to return from IR in three weeks. The exact nature and severity of the second-year tight end's injuries remain undisclosed.

Sep 16, 2020 9:26 AM EST


Lands on IR

The Texans placed Warring (undisclosed) on injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: It's unclear what Warring is dealing with, but he won't be eligible to return until Week 5. The Texans activated Pharaoh Brown to serve as the No. 3 TE going forward.
