In case you missed it in the Texans’ loss to New England yesterday, Houston is now without the services of their starting right tackle for the foreseeable future, as Seantrel Henderson broke his ankle.

I imagine we’ll get a better idea how long Henderson will be out (in other words, whether there’s any chance he can return this season) later today.

I’m also curious to see if the Texans stick with the personnel they employed after Henderson went down, as I was surprised that they moved Julien Davenport from left tackle to right tackle to insert Martinas Rankin on the left side; I would have figured they’d leave Davenport on the left side and slide Rankin into the right tackle spot vacated by Henderson.

UPDATE: As feared, Henderson will miss the rest of the 2018 season. Rankin and Davenport are going to have to grow up fast.
