Houston Texans left tackle Laremy Tunsil looks like he’s returning to full health and there should be some improvement along with that. What’s the latest?

The Houston Texans are working toward making inroads to a successful season while returning back home to NRG Stadium for their fourth game of the season.  They’ve started off their 2019 campaign with a 2-1 record and they’ve been in every game that they’ve participated in thus far.

It may not have always looked pretty out there but this team is still finding ways to win despite the holes that continue to gape at us when we’re watching the games.

Deshaun Watson is the catalyst to this new movement for the Houston Texans, with his innate ability to go off script and make plays for this team when they need them the most.  His 53-yard pass to a racing Jordan Akins toward the end zone for the touchdown was one of the most amazing plays I’ve ever seen.

Watson shook off about three defenders with his slick moves out on the gridiron and found Akins to give the Houston Texans the game-winning score.  I yelled the loudest I could when I saw this play and I’m so damn proud of cohesive this offense has been despite DeAndre Hopkins having a slow start to this season.

As long as the offensive line works to keep Watson upright, more is in store to dazzle us all and they will be the darlings of the NFL, mark my words!  Watson doesn’t nearly get enough credit for all what he does for this team and the world is about to find out how amazing of a player he is when the game is on the line!

But speaking of the offensive line, Laremy Tunsil, the team’s top offensive lineman that the they

traded two future first-rounders for, is returning back to full health.  Tunsil has been battling through a myriad of ankle and toe injuries and it has reduced his effectiveness to ensure his side of the line remains protected.

Tunsil was limited in Wednesday’s practice this week but has since been upgraded to full participation certainly meaning that he should be good to go for tomorrow.

He is still performing light-years ahead of his predecessor — Julie’n Davenport — and to say he’s under-performing would not be a fair assessment at this point but those injuries have slowed him a bit.

The line as a whole only gave up two sacks on Watson last week and that’s a massive improvement over the first two games.  I’d like to see zero but with Watson’s style of play, that might not be possible, especially with the way he likes to hold onto the football to extend plays.

Texans will have a tough decision with Hyde this offseason. dark. Next

Keep it up Laremy — go Houston Texans!
