After suffering an ankle injury during Week 16's game against the Bengals, Tunsil will not play. The Texans likely will have Roderick Johnson replace Tunsil to help protect Deshaun Watson's blind side Sunday.

Texans' Laremy Tunsil: Remains unlikely for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tunsil (ankle), who is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Titans, remains unlikely to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Houston appears set to be without three of its top tackles in the season finale, as Brent Qvale (concussion) and Tytus Howard (concussion) are both on injured reserve. Look for Roderick Johnson to protect Deshaun Watson's blind side Sunday.

Texans' Laremy Tunsil: Unlikely to play in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The injury Tunsil suffered Sunday against the Bengals is believed to be a high-ankle sprain, and it will likely keep him out of Houston's season finale against the Titans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Tunsil's Pro Bowl campaign will likely be cut a game short, negatively impacting a Texans offense that failed to find much consistency this season despite Tunsil's strong play at left tackle. Roderick Johnson came in for Tunsil against the Bengals and will likely start in his stead in Week 17.

Texans' Laremy Tunsil: Sitting Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tunsil (illness) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Patriots.

Tunsil's outlook for Week 11 has flipped back and forth over the past 48 hours, but it's now confirmed he will be unavailable to face New England after sitting out the entire practice week. One source noted that Tunsil gained medical clearance to play, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, but his status in pregame workouts seemingly did not alleviate concerns. Roderick Johnson or Tytus Howard will start in Tunsil's place at left tackle.

Texans' Laremy Tunsil: Chances to play Week 11 increasing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tunsil (illness), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, has received medical clearance to play, but the Texans are expected to re-evaluate him in a pregame workout before deciding on his status, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle relayed Saturday that Tunsil's illness -- which isn't related to COVID-19 -- was expected to keep him sidelined Week 11, but the star left tackle's outlook has seemingly taken a turn for the better in the past 24 hours. With doctors giving Tunsil the green light to play, the Texans coaching staff is expected to do the same if the 26-year-old feels OK while working out early Sunday.

Texans' Laremy Tunsil: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tunsil (illness) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Patriots, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 26-year-old is officially considered questionable with the non-COVID-19 illness, but it appears he isn't on track to play Sunday. Roderick Johnson or Tytus Howard would fill it at left tackle in Tunsil is indeed unavailable.

Texans' Laremy Tunsil: Questionable for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tunsil (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Sarah Barshop of ESPN.com reports.

Tunsil didn't practice all week, and there's no indication that his illness is related to COVID-19. As one of the top tackles in the league, Tunsil's potential absence would be a major loss for the Texans' offensive front, especially with Deshaun Watson already getting sacked on 8.0 percent of his dropbacks this year. Roderick Johnson or Tytus Howard will fill in at left tackle if Tunsil sits out.

Texans' Laremy Tunsil: Inks extension with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tunsil will sign a three-year, $66 million extension with the Texans that includes $57.85 million guaranteed, NFL.com reports.

The deal that sent Tunsil and Kenny Stills from the Dolphins to the Texans last August included Houston sending Miami two-first round picks, so it's not surprising that retaining the star offensive tackle was an offseason priority. The 6-foot-5, 313-pounder was the No. 13 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Texans' Laremy Tunsil: Recovering from shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tunsil underwent shoulder surgery to address a torn labrum this offseason but should be healthy for training camp, Mark Berman of KRIV Fox 26 reports.

It's unclear when exactly the injury was sustained, though Tunsil did sit out Week 9 due to a shoulder injury. The 25-year-old should have plenty of time to fully recover for the 2020 season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tunsil (ankle) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice.
