The Texans were hit with two sides of bad news on Tuesday. After not only losing outside linebacker Sam Montgomery to the non-football injury list due to weight issues, the Texans also announced rookie offensive tackle Brennan Williams is now a member of the PUP list, just two days ahead of training camp.

Williams was selected in the third round, and holds a lot of potential to make up some depth at the right tackle spot. Unfortunately knee surgery and a minor injury during the second minicamp practice will sideline him for training camp, and perhaps some of the preseason.

Prior to the draft Williams was noted for his physicality on the line, and his ability to pack a punch and knock linebackers or lineman away from their desired path to the ball carrier. His speed was never a big talking point for scouts, and he’ll likely only ever play on the right side, but still, at 6’6 and 318 pounds, Williams has a lot of weight to throw around if he ever gets the chance to protect Matt Schaub.

There’s nothing to say how severe this injury is, and it certainly isn’t one that should see Williams miss a significant amount of time. We all know the drill with knee injuries though, and sadly, their can be reoccurring problems.
