Brandon Brooks Passes Physical, Added To Houston Texans' Active Roster

Brandon Brooks returns to the Houston Texans' active roster. That's great news for an offensive line that needs to come together quickly in this new system.

The Texans' offensive line has seen many challenges throughout this preseason.  David Quessenberry is battling lymphoma, and Brennan Williams was released when he failed his physical after trying to recover from a knee injury he suffered in training camp last year.

A few weeks ago, when Texans' players were reporting to training camp, news broke that starting right guard Brandon Brooks was designated on the "non-football injury list" for an unknown injury.  The way he was walking, and the sign of treatment packs on his lower back, indicated some type of potential back injury sustained prior to camp.  Bill O'Brien and the Texans have been tight-lipped about the whole ordeal surrounding Brooks' situation.

You may recall that Brooks was considered the Texans' most improved player during last year's brutal 2-14 campaign.  We may never know the origin of this mysterious injury, but it would appear it's in the rearview mirror.  Let us welcome Brooks back with great enthusiasm!

Our offensive line is coming together just in time for the regular season.  Queue the "it's happening" GIFs!
