HOUSTON (CBS Houston) - The Texans woes at right tackle continue with third-round draft pick Brennan Williams’ return now pushed out to July.

Williams had a prime opportunity move up on the depth chart with starter Derek Newton sidelined after knee surgery.  However, Williams is less than 100% after suffering what was considered a minor knee injury during the second day of rookie minicamp on May 11.  An MRI cleared him of any major issues but Williams did not participate for the remainder of minicamp.  He was expected to return in time for OTAs.

“Just trying to get him healthy coming off of that knee,” head coach Gary Kubiak said on May 28. “Just trying to get him healthy. Basically resting him right now. Hope to put him back to work sometime next week.”

Unfortunately, Kubiak was unable to put Williams on the field during the team’s third and final week of OTA practice.  For now, it appears as though the rookie tackle will have to wait until July to rejoin his new teammates.

“Thought it was going to be minicamp and now they’re saying training camp so I’m just doing what they’re telling me.  I’m fighting them every step of the way but I just got to do what the experts are telling me,” Williams said Tuesday.

“I think we’re just playing it safe right now. Obviously it’s important to be back in time for training camp and you know, when we actually strap on the pads.”

The Texans will hold mandatory minicamp June 11-13 and then begin training camp July 26.
