Martin (ankle) has resumed running after undergoing ankle surgery in late December, Aaron Wilson of The Houston Chronicle reports.
The center continues to make progress after missing the final two games of last season with the ankle injury. Look for more updates to come as training camp nears, with the veteran expected to be ready for the beginning of the regular season.
Martin underwent successful surgery on his ankle Tuesday and is expected to be at full strength entering the 2018 season, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The center was placed on injured reserve last week due to what Texans head coach Bill O'Brien called a "pretty serious" ankle issue. Martin previously missed the entire 2016 season after requiring surgery on his ankle.
Martin suffered the injury in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars. Texans head coach Bill O'Brien indicated after the game that the injury was "pretty serious," so Martin's subsequent placement on the IR is not all that surprising. Regarded as the Texans' top lineman, Martin's absence will hurt an already suspect offense over the team's final two contests of 2017.
Martin sustained what may have been a severe ankle injury in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Head coach Bill O'Brien said that it looked like a "pretty serious injury", and more specifics should come forth as the week begins to unfold. Martin was carted to the locker room, and with only two weeks left in the season and the Texans already eliminated from the playoffs, his 2017 season could be over.
Martin is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars with an ankle injury.
Martin exited in the second half and went to the locker room on a cart. Greg Mancz has stepped in at center while Martin is sidelined.
