It’s been a revolving door at right tackle for the Texans after the injury to rookie offensive tackle Tytus Howard. Howard will be out again this week with a slightly torn MCL.
Swing tackle Roderick Johnson was his replacement, but he suffered a neck injury last week and was unable to finish the game. Dan Skipper, who was signed off the Patriots practice squad, replaced Johnson and finished the game for the Texans last week.
During my interview on Just Pod Baby with Patrick Starr, who covers the Texans for SI.com, he believed it would be Skipper who would get the start this week versus the Raiders.
Aaron Wilson, beat writer for the Houston Chronicle, is now reporting different information with game time just an hour away. The Texans are going with veteran Chris Clark to get the start at right tackle.
