Texans safety Lonnie Ballentine has been limited to four games, three tackles and one pass deflection since joining the team in 2014, spending each of the past three seasons on injured reserve.. When the Texans drafted safety Lonnie Ballentine three years ago as the final pick of the draft and Mr. Irrelevant, they had high hopes for the former Memphis safety. Ballentine suffered a major injury to his left knee in 2015 against the Jacksonville Jaguars where he dislocated the knee and tore his medial collateral and posterior cruciate ligaments. Once he was activated last season from the physically unable to perform list, he played in just two games with no statistics before being placed on injured reserve again with groin, ankle and knee injuries.
