Houston Texans left tackle Laremy Tunsil’s availability for this Sunday against the Jags has been solidified. What’s the latest on the star OL? Look.
Houston Texans fans — can you believe it? The team will be taking an opponent in London for the first time in franchise history. The franchise had been one of the last to do so and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect as the team starts its ascent through the AFC South and it will allow their brand to get more exposure internationally.
There is a strong following of the Houston Texans overseas with their coverage being quite excellent, being in tune with every step that the team makes toward trying to be a contender.
I think that will spill over into these games where there will be a contingent of Houston Texans fans in attendance from all over the globe to watch them do battle with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
If all goes well, I’m sure that the Houston Texans could make this a regular thing, as long as they’re not the home team. That was the biggest stickler to the franchise not making the trip in past seasons as I understand that losing game-day revenue in Houston would not even compare to the turnstile revenue at Wembley Stadium.
Bob McNair was adamant on that stance but since he has passed away, Cal McNair, his son, decided to see if there was a medium that could be struck in order for his team to be featured in the games.
It’s a step in the right direction and let’s hope that they keep it that way. We’ll see how it goes.

Yes, I’m talking about left tackle Laremy Tunsil, who exited Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders with a shoulder injury. He’s been healing himself since then, has written the injury off as one that’s not major.
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that he will make the trip with the team and is expected to play.
It will be good to have him back, especially since the line allowed three sacks Sunday and the pass protection deteriorated on the left side once he exited the game for good against the Oakland Raiders.
Tunsil, who was traded for two first-round picks (2020-21) and a second-rounder (2021) in a package with wide receiver Kenny Stills, has yielded mostly positive results. It’s still clear that he’s learning the Houston Texans‘ offensive system but he’s showing that he’s passing the test with flying colors.
Let’s hope for the best with Laremy — go Houston Texans!
