Texans RT Tytus Howard to IR

Recommended Posts

Howard was having a solid season as the RT for the Texans, but suffered an MCL injury vs Kansas City. He managed to come back and play in the last three games, but has been shut down prior to the New England game. T Rod Johnson will not finish out the season.

In a corresponding move, the Texans brought up NT Eddie Vanderdoes from the PS.

Tough ending to an overall promising season.

Texans aren’t allowed to have nice things at OL. 

Who is the full-in vs NE? How has said fill-in looked/what is the concern level with this guy starting? @ET80

Tunsil and Scharping are still around, so I'm... OK.

Rod Johnson is now starting - he's not as bad as Browns' fans remember, but he's a pretty big downgrade. Chris Clark might get time in, which is a scary proposal. Picking up Andre Smith as a fill in would be a smart decision, IMO.

Carlos Hyde will probably suffer the most, as Howard was really able to work his way downfield on run plays and provide a moving plow for the run game. Johnson is pretty much a slug out there at RT, not athletic enough to get upfield on run plays.
