HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – On Tuesday, Gary Kubiak made it clear that he was not happy with third round draft pick Brandon Brooks’ weight. Officially listed at 6-foot-5 and 346 pounds Brooks is the heaviest player on the Texans roster. Brooks was labeled overweight, and officially outweighed all other offensive lineman by at least 26 pounds.

On Wednesday, Brooks addressed Kubiak’s concern.

“I got my weight down,” Brooks said. “I’m 11 pounds lighter now and [Kubiak] is a good coach so he’s supposed to be … making sure I’m doing everything I need to do.”

Brooks, who was around 353 pounds when he was drafted, attributed the sudden weight loss to “Just watching what I eat, being out here at practice.”

It’s difficult to believe that Brooks could be able to lose 11 pounds in a single day. However, by Wednesday Kubiak acknowledged his improvement.

“He’s got a lot of ability and he can help this team, these young guys have to learn how important it is every day to be accountable… he bounced back today and he was better.”

By the end of rookie minicamp on Thursday, Kubiak dismissed questions about Brooks’ weight issues with a smile saying: “He’s doing good, he’s alright.”

With rookie minicamp officially over and training camp set to begin on July 28th, the pressure is on Brooks to keep the weight off and remain healthy.
