Houston (CBS Houston) – The Houston Texans’ offensive line takes another hit as left guard Wade Smith will be out “an undetermined amount of time” after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery this morning.

Head coach Gary Kubiak gave the status of Wade Smith Tuesday morning, “We made a decision last night to have Wade’s knee scoped today, so we took an aggressive approach to clean it up. He’s already done.”

Kubiak said the surgery went well and and the timetable is day-to-day.

“Everything went good, so now we start the process of coming back,” Kubiak said. “It’s going to be a day-to-day deal right now, but he’s got some work to do to get back.”

Smith, 32-years old, wasn’t at practice all last week due to a collision with Brooks Reed and was replaced in the Texans’ preseason opener against the Viking’s last Friday by second-year veteran Ben Jones.  Jones who was a fourth-round draft pick in 2012 and started 10 games at right guard in his rookie year.

The Texans have tried to address their offensive line woes.   Rookie David Quessenberry at guard and Monday the team acquired offensive lineman Nate Menkin from Philadelphia in exchange for receiver Jeff Maehl.

Kubiak said, “It’s going to probably take a good week to see where we’re at, but obviously we thought it was the best approach to take to get him back the quickest.”
