The Houston Texans won’t get to see how their two-time Pro Bowl left tackle plays alongside the retooled offensive line.

According to coach David Culley ahead of Thursday’s training camp practice, Laremy Tunsil is still in the COVID-19 protocol.

“He’s doing well,” Culley said. “He’s feeling better. He will not play.”

The Texans take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Saturday night at NRG Stadium. The next game after that is the season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sept. 12, also at NRG Stadium.

Culley says the team’s approach with Tunsil is to take it “day by day.”

Said Culley: “The protocol, when he’s feeling better. Right now, we’re just reconditioning him because he’s been away for a while. We’re not going to put him out on the field again until we feel he’s conditioning wise ready to play.”

Tunsil has played 28 games for the Texans since 2019, missing two games per season.
