Texans' Laremy Tunsil, Justin Britt still sidelined

Texans Pro Bowl left offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil and veteran center Justin Britt remain sidelined on injured reserve.

While both players are on injured reserve, neither has been designated for return with no 21-day practice window launched yet.

Britt hyperextended and bruised his knee and rookie center Jimmy Morrissey has started the past two games with Justin McCray replacing Max Scharping at right guard after initially playing center in place of Britt.

Tunsil is still rehabbing a torn ligament in his left thumb and recently resumed lifting weights. His thumb is still in a protective brace, though.

No return is imminent.

The Texans' starting offensive line, with Marcus Cannon on injured reserve after undergoing back surgery to repair a herniated disk, is comprised of left tackle Geron Christian Sr., left guard Tytus Howard, Morrissey, McCray and right tackle Charlie Heck. Heck has started six games in a row.

No changes are expected for Sunday's game against the New York Jets at NRG Stadium.

“They are in rehab right now," Texans coach David Culley said of Tunsil and Britt. "I hope after this week, or maybe we will find out a little more about Justin (Thursday), that we get them back as soon as possible. But they are still in rehab right now.”
