Laremy Tunsil, the man charged with protecting
Deshaun Watson Tyrod Taylor Davis Mills’ blind side, suffered a thumb injury that knocked him out of the game against the Patriots last Sunday. The initial hope was that Tunsil could play through it so the Texans’ offensive line wouldn’t be disrupted any more than it has already been. Today, however, David Culley announced that his left tackle would go under the knife and subsequently miss the next four weeks of action.

The Texans have a bye in Week Ten, so if the projected recovery time holds, it means Tunsil will miss games against the Colts, Cardinals, Rams, and Dolphins before returning in Week Eleven to face the Titans in Nashville.
In the meantime, how will Houston plug that enormous hole at left tackle? For at least this week, we know the solution won’t involve moving Tytus Howard to LT.

What would your reconstituted starting offensive line for the Texans look like on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium?
