Texans starting RT Seantrel Henderson out for season with broken ankle

By Vincent Frank

The Houston Texans received some pretty bad news following their disappointing Week 1 loss to the New England Patriots.

Head coach Bill O’Brien announced on Monday that starting right tackle Seantrel Henderson suffered a broken ankle in the season opener and will be out for the remainder of the campaign.

Henderson, 26, was brought over from the Buffalo Bills during the offseason and had earned the starting right tackle job during the preseason. It’s a major blow for a Texans squad that’s razor thin at offensive tackle in front of franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Houston was already relying on an unproven¬†Julie’n Davenport to start at left tackle. With Henderson out of action, rookie Martinas Rankin and youngster¬†Kendall Lamm will compete for the right tackle job moving forward. We can also expect Houston to add a street free agent.
