Houston Texans offensive tackle Rashad Butler is out for the season after tearing the triceps in his right arm, reports the Houston Chronicle's John McClain.

Butler had lost a competition to start at right tackle and was slated to be a backup.

McClain reports that Andrew Gardner is now slotted into the role of "swing tackle," though the team could look to add a veteran.

“He had a good camp,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. “We’ve got to find a way to work through (Butler’s injury)."

Butler started four games in 2010. He missed the last 14 games of last season after suffering a triceps tear in his left arm.
