Houston (CBS Houston) – The Houston Texans returned to practice this morning after an impressive showing in their first preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings, but concern came over the team quickly as it looks as if left guard Wade Smith’s injury might be worse than originally thought.

Smith wasn’t at practice all last week due to a knee bruise injury and was replaced in the Texans’ preseason opener against the Viking’s last Friday by second-year veteran Ben Jones.

Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said Monday morning that the team will reevaluate Smith, “The knee swell up on him and had a big bone bruise. (It) hasn’t responded the last few days the way we wanted it. We’re re-evaluating him; having some other people look at it. I’ll have more for you probably this afternoon or tomorrow morning.”

Before the season, the Texans offensive line was already in question and with Smith and rookie offensive tackle Brennan Williams out with knee injuries, this might be the biggest concern for the Texans this preseason.

This is Smith’s third season with the Houston Texans.

Quarterback Matt Schaub missed practice on Monday morning due to a death in the family; and inside linebacker Brian Cushing was not on the field due to an illness.
