Impending free agent NT Shaun Cody underwent back surgery last week.
Cody, 30, had "microscopic lumbar discectomy surgery for a lumbar disc herniation." He suffered the injury during the preseason, but went on to play in 13 games. Cody missed three games after reportedly suffering broken ribs and a punctured lung in Week 9. It's uncertain if the Texans will try to re-sign him. Cody has consistently graded out in the bottom half of Pro Football Focus' end-of-the-year rankings. Fri, Feb 8, 2013 11:41:00 AM

Texans DT Shaun Cody underwent a procedure this week after reportedly suffering broken ribs and a punctured lung in Week 9.

Coach Gary Kubiak refused to shed light on the procedure, offering only that it was for "rib issues." Asked if Cody's lung was indeed punctured, Kubiak replied, "I'm not a doctor." Cody denied Thursday that his lung was punctured. The rotational lineman is out indefinitely.

Texans DT Shaun Cody suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung in Sunday's win over the Bills.

Cody left the game and returned after sustaining the injury. Coach Gary Kubiak termed Cody as "day-to-day" with his injuries. "Shaun has always been able to work through things," Kubiak said Wednesday in his daily news conference. Cody dealt with a back injury earlier this season, but he didn’t miss any regular-season games because of it.

Texans NT Shaun Cody (back) is going to miss "some time."

Cody sustained damage to one of his disks in the Texans' preseason opener. He needed an epidural to relieve the pain. Earl Mitchell will run with the ones at nose tackle going forward.

Texans agreed to terms with DT Shaun Cody on a two-year, $5.75 million extension, including $1.5 million guaranteed.

Coach Gary Kubiak maintains that Cody was his "second-most consistent" defensive lineman last season behind Antonio Smith. New coordinator Wade Phillips is confident that Cody can handle the nose in his 3-4 scheme, so he's set to rotate with Earl Mitchell barring an impact addition.

Free agent DT Shaun Cody is unlikely be back in Houston next season.

Relatively svelte for an interior lineman, he's not a great fit for the 3-4 defense Wade Phillips is installing in Houston. The owner of just two career sacks, Cody could have trouble finding a starting job this offseason after starting 29 games in Houston the past two years.

Texans declared DT Shaun Cody, QB Dan Orlovsky, WR Glenn Martinez, FS Nick Ferguson, CB Antwaun Molden, DT DelJuan Robinson, OL Tutan Reyes and TE Anthony Hill inactive for Week 6 against the Bengals.

Cody will sit out the game with the flu, giving fifth-round rookie Frank Okam the start against the league's leading rusher, Cedric Benson.

Texans starting DT Shaun Cody is out for Sunday's game against the Bengals due to the flu.

Cedric Benson gets a small boost with Cody out. Frank Okam is expected to draw the start, with DelJuan Robinson also getting snaps.
Sat, Oct 17, 2009 12:16:00 PM

Texans agreed to terms with DT Shaun Cody on a three-year contract.

Cody, the No. 37 overall pick in 2005, never developed as a pocket pusher in Detroit, but is only 26 and has upside. He'll likely push Travis Johnson at nose tackle. At worst, Cody should help as a rotational run stopper.
Mon, Mar 23, 2009 01:34:00 PM

Free agent DT Shaun Cody will visit the Saints Monday.

The high second round pick struggled to ever get on the field in Detroit, which isn't the best sign. He would be a backup in New Orleans.
Sat, Mar 7, 2009 02:22:00 PM

Lions DT Shaun Cody, the No. 37 overall pick in the 2005 draft, is in danger of not making the team.

Cody has the tools to be an effective three technique, but has never been productive. He might've worked out better had he been drafted into a 3-4 and taught to play end. If cut, Cody would likely be snapped up quickly.

Lions DL Shaun Cody (toe) is expected to be ready for training camp.

Cody will back up Cory Redding as the Lions' three-technique tackle this season. A former second-round pick, Cody has yet to live up to expectations.

Lions placed DT Shaun Cody on injured reserve, ending his season.

Cody's toe injury lingered for nearly two months before Detroit was forced to pull the plug on his season. A second-round pick in 2005, Cody has been a disappointment. Marcus Bell will remain a starter inside.

Shaun Cody (toe) is doubtful for Thursday's game.

Shaun Rogers is likely to return to the lineup.
Mon, Nov 20, 2006 05:29:00 PM

DT Shaun Cody left Sunday's game after aggravating his toe injury.

Cody left in the first half and did not return, but his status for Thursday is uncertain.
