Guard Xavier Su'a-Filo is day-to-day after suffering an undisclosed injury early in training camp. The second-year offensive lineman likely also won't practice leading up to the Texans preseason game at New Orleans.
"Su'a-Filo is definitely day-to-day," head coach Bill O'Brien said Sunday. "Hopefully he can get back at some point this week, but right now I would say no."
The Texans offensive line depth has been tested with the absence of promising prospects like Su'a-Filo and third-year David Quessenberry, who is in remission after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin Lymphoma last May. O'Brien has been closely evaluating his roster in preseason action with most of the starters playing limited snaps.
"Some of these guys have played decently," O'Brien said. "I mentioned last week a couple guys. (C) James Ferentz I think has played pretty well overall, pretty consistent. I think the young tackle, (Kendall) Lamm, has shown up and done some decent things for us. It would be good to get eventually, hopefully get Xavier back, get Xavier back from injury. Let's get him in there and get him a ton of reps, see if we can get him better. So yeah, I think there's some guys that are there that we just need to continue to work with."
