HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- Texans Pro Bowl left tackle Laremy Tunsil suffered a torn UCL in his thumb and will eventually need surgery, but is expected to play through the injury, according to multiple reports.

Tunsil left Sunday's game in the second quarter after trying to block on a run play. It was unclear from video whether Tunsil was cut blocking, or simply fell down.

Either way, Tunsil immediately motioned toward the Texans' sideline and was substituted for Geron Christian. Tunsil only returned briefly to protect on an extra point attempt.
