Bye Week Expected to Help Texans Laremy Tunsil to Return to the Field

Patrick D. Starr

The Houston Texans are looking forward to getting healthy as they can come out of the bye week especially key players. Starting left tackle Laremy Tunsil is one of the Texans that need the bye week to get back into playing form for the second half of the season. 

Tunsil injured his shoulder in the Texans win over the Oakland Raiders and it prevented him from playing against the Jacksonville Jaguars. 

After practicing the entire week in London, Tunsil tried to give it a go but it was not going to happen. The decision was left in Tunsil's hands-on if he could play this past Sunday but he errs on the side of caution keeping the season and not on game as his motivation. 

Head coach Bill O'Brien feels good about Tunsil returning coming out of the bye week for the Texans matchup with the Baltimore Ravens. 

"I think Laremy is doing better," O'Brien said of the left tackle. "I think he tried to go, he wasn't able to do it, and I think that he made a decision in the best interest of the team."

The bye week seems to come at the right time for the Texans mentally and physically and O'Brien knows it will help Tunsil.

 O'Brien continued on Tunsil, "But I think the time off will help him, and I think he'll be ready to go."
