Texans have 8 players not practicing at OTAs

The Houston Texans may have over 90% attendance at their organized team activities at Houston Methodist Training Center and NRG Stadium, but the focus perpetually is on the players who weren’t available.

According to Aaron Wilson from KPRC-TV, the Texans had seven players who were not participating at the team’s OTAs on Tuesday.

Three players were unavailable due to injury: receiver John Metchie (groin), defensive lineman Thomas Booker (groin), and defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway (hamstring).

Linebacker Denzel Perryman was not available due to recovery from labrum surgery.

The Texans had three veterans who were not in attendance at the voluntary workouts: left tackle Laremy Tunsil, cornerback Steven Nelson, tight end Dalton Schultz, and tackle Greg Little. Last offseason, Tunsil missed all of OTAs but was back in time for the team’s mandatory minicamp in June.
