Texans Rule Out Linebacker For Thursday's Game

He won't play in Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Houston Texans have ruled out linebacker Neville Hewitt for Thursday night against the Eagles.
Hewitt failed to practice Wednesday and will consequently be held out on a short week. He's primarily made it onto the field as part of the special teams unit.

Through seven games this season, Hewitt has just six total tackles (five solo). The twenty-nine-year-old is in his eighth NFL season, totaling 106 career games, recording 418 total tackles (270 solo), with 7.5 sacks and three interceptions. He's spent time with the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets and the Texans.
