The Houston Texans offensive line has taken another blow, losing one of their best to an injury. Tytus Howard is now done for the remainder of the season after suffering a knee injury on Sunday that requires surgery.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the news via Twitter on Wednesday.
In 2019, Howard became the first-ever Alabama State player to be selected in the first round of an NFL Draft, being taken 23rd overall. That same year, he made the Pro Football Writers’ Association’s All-Rookie Team.
In his four-plus seasons in the league so far, Howard has only managed to play in every single game of one of those, which was last season. In seven games last season, he has not drawn a single penalty, which is a far cry from his nine penalties taken in the 2020 season.
