Houston Texans guard Brandon Brooks (ankle) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, the Texans' official site reports.
Brooks suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers , but it was not considered serious. With both Brooks and Duane Brown (thumb) at practice, it looks like the Texans will could have a most of their starting offensive line available this week against the Atlanta Falcons .
Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien is optimistic offensive lineman Brandon Brooks (ankle) will be able to play Week 4 against Atlanta, the Texans' official site reports.
Brooks had his ankle rolled up on during Houston's win over Tampa Bay in Week 3 and was unable to return.
Brooks becomes the third starter on the offensive line dealing with an injury - Duane Brown (thumb) was inactive Sunday and Jeff Adams (knee) is out for the season.
Brooks has lost weight over the offseason, O'Brien said, per the Houston Chronicle. He's been in top shape for the OTAs.
"I have very high expectations," O'Brien said. "I think he can be one the best guards in this league."
