The Houston Texans took a hit to their tackle depth on Monday.

The team announced they are placing offensive tackle Charlie Heck on the COVID-19 reserve. A source confirms the placement was a result of a positive test.

Coach David Culley told reporters on Sept. 2 that the coaches were pleased with the progress the second-year tackle had made throughout training camp and the preseason.

“Very happy with Charlie to where he is at to this point,” said Culley. “Very happy with him.”

On the Texans’ unofficial depth chart, Heck was listed as second behind starting left tackle Laremy Tunsil. Behind Heck on the depth chart is Geron Christian, who did start at left tackle during preseason while Tunsil was on the COVID-19 reserve.

Houston plays the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Sept. 12 at NRG Stadium.
