Darryl Sharpton: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Sharpton is expected to be sidelined for a couple weeks while he recovers. Following 87 tackles for Houston last season, Sharpton signed with the Redskins to help fill the void at inside linebacker, left in wake of London Fletcher's retirement. However, with Keenan Robinson now healthy, Sharpton may be more of a rotational player next to Perry Riley this season.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Injuries have cost Sharpton a total of 19 games over his first three NFL seasons, preventing him from making much of an impact at middle linebacker. Now healthy, he's the likely starter at inside linebacker opposite Brian Cushing to open the 2013 season.
Often injured, Sharpton will help the Texans at inside linebacker.
Sharpton was a big part of Houston's special teams coverage in his rookie season in 2010 and will resume that role again in 2011. He did see significant playing time on defense last year, due to injuries and we'll likely see him backing up both DeMeco Ryans and Brian Cushing at inside linebacker.
Sharpton adds some depth to the linebacking corps, but he appears to be too undersized to be a full-timer.
