Texans' Justin McCray back from concussion, Tyrod Taylor participates fully

Texans offensive guard Justin McCray participated fully as he's on track to clear concussion protocol after being sidelined for one game.

The veteran blocker, as long as he remains free of symptoms and passes baseline neurological exams, is set to return to the starting lineup at right offensive guard. Max Scharping started against the Indianapolis Colts with McCray out.

Signed to a two-year contract, the former Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons lineman has started five games.

Meanwhile, several players didn't practice Wednesday.

That includes center Justin Britt, who returned from a knee injury. It's probable that Britt who didn't miss a snap is being given a day of rest since the knee injury, a hyperextension, landed him on injured reserve earlier this season.

Britt has been looking forward to this game against the Seattle Seahawks, his former employer, circling this game on his calendar.
