Texans' Laremy Tunsil questionable to play at Jaguars with knee injury

Tunsil, a three-time Pro Bowl left tackle, missed Houston's home-opener against the Colts

(SportsRadio 610) - The Texans could be without their three-time Pro Bowl left tackle for a second straight game as he battles a knee injury.

Laremy Tunsil was limited at practice all week after missing the Texans' home-opening loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. The team's injury report lists him as questionable to play this Sunday when they travel to face the Jacksonville Jaguars.

If Tunsil is unable to play, it predicts trouble for a banged up Houston offensive line that just played against the Colts without four of its five starters.

Josh Jones, who started week one at Baltimore playing left guard, moved to tackle in Tunsil's place, elevating newcomer Kendrick Green to left guard, with rookie Jarrett Patterson at center and veteran backup George Fant at right tackle.

Right guard Shaq Mason is the Texans' only healthy starting offensive linemen.

In other injury news, four key Texans have been ruled out against the Jaguars. Linebacker Denzel Perryman (hand/wrist), safety Jalen Pitre (bruised lung), cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. (hamstring) and nickel corner Tavierre Thomas (hand) are unavailable for the game.

The Jaguars have ruled out wide receiver Zay Jones (knee) and safety Antonio Johnson (hamstring). Outside linebacker Josh Allen, defensive lineman Folorunso Fatukasi and safety Andrew Wingard are all dealing with shoulder injuries and questionable to play against the Texans.
