The Texans hope to get one or both starting offensive guards, Zach Fulton and Senio Kelemete, back for a big divisional game against the Tennessee Titans.
“I think both guards will be day-to-day,” head coach Bill O’Brien said Wednesday. “I think it will be game-time decisions, and we’ll see how it goes during the week. We’ll see how it goes on – it’s a Monday night game, which kind of helps because you have the extra day. But, we’ll see how it goes.”
Both Fulton and Kelemete exited Sunday’s 23-21 win against Washington in the first half and did not return. Fulton suffered a shoulder injury on Houston’s first offensive drive and was replaced by Greg Mancz at right guard. Kelemete left the game with an ankle injury in the second quarter. Martinas Rankin stepped in at left guard and finished the game.
Mancz, now in his fourth year, has seen action in all 10 games this season with three starts at both left and right guard. Rankin started three games at left tackle as a rookie this season.
The (7-3) Texans will next host the (5-5) Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football. Kickoff is set for 7:15 p.m. CT on ESPN and SportsRadio 610.
