HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Brennan Williams is getting some attention at OTAs and not in a positive way.  On Monday after the first day of OTAs, head coach Gary Kubiak showed some concerns over Williams’ progress. The third-round draft pick out of UNC suffered a knee injury on May 11 during the second day of mini-camp and did not return.  An MRI cleared his knee of any major issues, but the offensive tackle is still suffering lingering effects.

“(Williams) is way behind.  He’s got a little issue with his knee.  We’re trying to get him healthy and we gotta get his physical condition up with the rest of the team,” Kubiak said in a press gathering after OTA practice on Monday.

The right tackle position continues to have uncertainty with Williams’ delayed progress and starter Derek Newton sidelined until training camp.  Newton, who started 14 games at right tackle for the Texans in 2012, underwent surgery in the offseason to repair the patella tendon in his right knee.  Ryan Harris, re-signed by the Texans in April,  has been taking reps in OTAs at right tackle.  Harris started for the injured Newton in the final two games of the 2012 season.  Sixth-round draft pick David Quessenberry has also stepped up in a big way.

“(He’s) smart, played all over the place during minicamp and handled it.  The guy’s going to get a ton of reps at right tackle now with the (Derek) Newton and the (Brennan) Williams situation,” Kubiak said of Quessenberry after the first day of OTAs.

The Houston Texans will be in OTAs until June 6th.
