Kamu Grugier-Hill sets team record in tackles

Kamu Grugier-Hill set a new franchise record in single-game tackles.

The sixth-year veteran linebacker, who signed with the Texans in free agency, finished the game with the 19 tackles, the most in a single game in Texans history.

"It's an honor; I can't lie," Grugier-Hill said after the game. "My whole career I've been pigeonholed as a good special teamer, come in on core downs. And to have this accomplishment, like in this franchise, a place I want to be, just prove to everyone that I can be a real starter, real player in this league, a legit player.

With his tackle on Colts RB Jonathan Taylor in the fourth quarter, Grugier-Hill passed the existing single-game record (17), held by Brian Cushing (9/21/14 at New York Giants), Jamie Sharper (11/9/03 at Cincinnati and 12/14/03 at Tampa Bay) and Tyrell Adams (11/26/20 at Detroit).

Grugier-Hill recorded 13 tackles in the first half against the Colts, tying Sharper (13 tackles at TB, 12/14/03) for the franchise record for tackles in a single half. In the Texans' 31-0 loss to the Colts, he also recorded 1.0 sack, one quarterback hit and three tackles for loss.

"But, I didn't play a perfect game, for sure," Grugier-Hill said. "I left a lot of plays out there. And there's always room to improve."

Through 11 starts this year, Grugier-Hill has recorded 83 tackles (54 solo), 3.0 sacks, 10 tackles for loss, five quarterback hits, one interception, two passes defensed and two forced fumbles.
