Houston (CBS Houston) – The Texans could be without Brennan Williams for long time. His season is already over after being placed on injured reserve but Thursday brought with it bad news about his ailing knee. Williams underwent microfracutre knee surgery.
Microfracture procedures create multiple tiny fractures within the knee to hopefully create new cartilage. It’s considered a fairly severe surgery with a long recovery timetable. Williams, who was drafted to compete at right tackle, has been dealing with knee injuries since rookie minicamp.
