With injuries to offensive tackles Roderick Johnson and Tytus Howard, the Houston Texans are expected to start veteran offensive tackle Chris Clark at right tackle. Clark will mark the fifth different right tackle that has received snaps at the position this season. 

Clark was signed last week with the injuries to the offensive line and now he will step into a starting role. Howard is dealing with a partially torn MCL while Johnson has a neck issue he is dealing with that he sustained last week. The Texans will use offensive tackle Dan Skipper as their swing tackle during the game. 

Clark originally arrived at the Texans in 2015 when they traded for him from the Denver Broncos. Clark has the versatility to play both left and right tackle and did both for the Texans. In 2018, Clark started at left tackle for the Carolina Panthers protecting quarterback Cam Newton. 

In 2019, Clark returned to his hometown team, the New Orleans Saints, but suffered a lower leg injury in August, resulting in him being placed on the injured reserve. Clark was released from the Saints with an injury settlement.
