Reports are coming in that Brandon Brooks, the Texans' starting right guard on the offensive line, has departed Ralph Wilson Stadium this morning in an ambulance with an unspecified illness. He has a history of stomach ulcers, and according to Chron.com, it is being speculated that may be the situation today.
Oday Aboushi will start today in place of Brooks for the Texans' game against the Buffalo Bills. Aboushi has played well enough that this shouldn't be a huge setback for the offense, but obviously we'll hope Brooks is feeling better soon.
After the Texans arrived at Ralph Wilson Stadium RG Brandon Brooks walked out of dressing room and into back of ambulance. No reason given.
