Pro Bowl left offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil has been activated from the reserve-COVID-19 list, according to a league source not authorized to speak publicly.
Tunsil participated in the Texans' walkthrough practice Monday.
Tunsil tested positive prior to the Texans' preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers. He didn't experience serious symptoms, according to a league source.
The pending return of arguably the Texans' best player regardless of position was especially welcome to the player whose blindside he'll protect: quarterback Tyrod Taylor.
Taylor stayed in touch with Tunsil via text last week.
"It was good to see him come into the locker room, just his presence amongst the guys means a lot," Taylor said prior to him being activated. "I know the offensive linemen and just the rest of the team have the utmost respect for him, and just happy to have him back. I know he's eager to get back on the field, and we need him to be ready for Week One and excited to see him back in the huddle.”
