Texans waived DE Kendall Langford.
Langford is a vested veteran, but all released players must go through waivers after the trade deadline. Seemingly still not at full health as he returned from a 2016 knee injury, 31-year-old Langford couldn't get on the field for the Texans' injury-ravaged defense. Tue, Nov 7, 2017 04:12:00 PM

Texans DE Kendall Langford is inactive Sunday versus the Browns. CB Kevin Johnson, S Corey Moore, C Kyle Fuller, RB Jordan Todman, ILB Ben Heeney and G Dorian Johnson are also inactive for the Texans' Week 6 game versus Cleveland.

Langford was just signed on Tuesday to aid Houston's defensive front after losing both J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus for the season. While the skeleton crew Houston is putting on the field defensively this Sunday may not be an issue versus an struggling Browns' offense, it's something to monitor going forward.

Texans signed DE Kendall Langford.

Langford, 31, will try to help pitch in and replace some of the snaps lost by J.J. Watt's season-ending injury. Langford had a cup of coffee with the Saints last month but lasted just three days on the roster. Prior to missing nine games with the Colts last season, Langford had been a model of health.

Saints released DE Kendall Langford.

Langford lasted just two days after signing this week. Knee issues ended Langford's time in Indy and have his career in doubt. The Saints also released veteran DE Darryl Tapp and promoted corners Justin Hardee and Arthur Maulet from the practice squad.
Sat, Sep 23, 2017 04:42:00 PM

Saints signed DE Kendall Langford, formerly of the Colts.

Langford, 31, was cut by Indy in August after failing to pass a physical. He has struggled with knee issues in recent years, but is a solid run stopper at defensive end and tackle when healthy. He should play soon in New Orleans.
Wed, Sep 20, 2017 11:39:00 PM

Colts released DE Kendall Langford with a failed physical designation.

Langford appeared in just seven games in 2016 due to knee issues and was recovering from offseason surgery. He reportedly hadn't made any progress since opening training camp on the active/PUP list. 31-year-old Langford had never missed a game prior to last year, but it sounds like there's concern over if he'll be able to continue his career. The release save the Colts $4 million and leaves $250K in dead money. Henry Anderson will replace Langford in base sets.

Colts DE Kendall Langford is recovering from offseason knee surgery.

He's been absent from OTAs and minicamp as he rehabs on a side field. Langford's 2016 season was cut short by an August knee scope that he never seemed to recover from, and he was sent to I.R. in November. A steady vet at 31, Langford had never missed a game before midway through 2016.
Tue, Jun 13, 2017 10:03:00 PM

Colts placed DE Kendall Langford (knee) on injured reserve.

His season is over. Langford bravely battled back from an August knee scope to play Week 1, but he was not the same player. The Colts eventually shut him down after Week 7, and now they are sidelining him for the rest of the season. It is possible he will need another surgery. Langford had been incredibly durable before this season, playing every game of his eight-year career. Despite the injury-driven downturn this year, Langford should be brought back at his $4 million salary next season.
Sat, Nov 19, 2016 02:07:00 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said the team will shut down DE Kendall Langford "for a little bit."

Langford hurried back from a preseason knee scope and has not been the same player through seven games. The defender will sit out this week -- his first miss in 135 career games -- and looks likely to be sidelined for several weeks. Already bad against the run, the Colts will also be without DE Henry Anderson (knee) on Sunday.
Sat, Oct 29, 2016 10:34:00 AM

Colts DE Kendall Langford (knee) will play Week 1 against the Lions.

He underwent a knee scope last month and returns just in time for the season opener. With DE Henry Anderson (knee) out, having Langford is big for the Colts.
Fri, Sep 9, 2016 01:02:00 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he would be "shocked" if DE Kendall Langford (knee surgery) did not play Week 1.

This matches what Pagano has said since Langford underwent a knee scope in early August. With Henry Anderson (knee) expected to miss, getting Langford back will be a big boost. Langford has never sat out a game in his eight-year career.
Tue, Sep 6, 2016 08:51:00 AM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said DE Kendall Langford (knee surgery) is looking good for Week 1.

Langford was given a three-to-four week timetable after undergoing a knee scope at the beginning of August. Even the back-end of that projection would put him ready for the season opener. Langford has never missed a game in his eight-year career.
Tue, Aug 23, 2016 11:45:00 AM

Colts DE Kendall Langford is out three-to-four weeks after undergoing a knee scope.

Langford has never sat out a game during his eight-year career, but this injury puts him in danger of missing Week 1. With Arthur Jones suspended and Henry Anderson (knee) still on the active/PUP list, the Colts are extremely thin on the defensive line. They will likely look to bring in some help.
Tue, Aug 9, 2016 11:37:00 AM

Kendall Langford said he chose the Colts because he prefers playing in a 3-4 scheme.

He wouldn't have gotten that opportunity with the Lions, who were also pursuing Langford in free agency. Langford looked like a fish out of water playing defensive tackle in St. Louis. He's a much better fit at five technique. Langford hasn't received a positive grade from Pro Football Focus since 2010.
Sun, Apr 5, 2015 10:54:00 AM

Colts signed DE Kendall Langford, formerly of the Rams, to a four-year, $17.2 million contract.

With Cory Redding contemplating retirement, Langford will be a candidate to start at five-technique end opposite Arthur Jones. Langford was an early-career beast at the "five" with the Dolphins, before struggling as a 4-3 defensive tackle in St. Louis. He's 29 years old.
