Texans First-Round OT Tytus Howard Has Torn MCL, Could Return This Season


According to Aaron Wilson, Texans first-round rookie OT Tytus Howard avoided tearing his ACL during Sunday’s game and instead has a partially torn MCL. 

Wilson says Howard will not need surgery for the injury and could return later this season. 

Howard, 23, was the No. 23 overall pick by the Texans out of Alabama State. He signed a four-year, $12,225,554 rookie contract that included a $6,911,312 signing bonus.

The Texans will have a fifth-year option to pick up on Howard in 2022.  

In 2019, Howard has appeared in four games for the Texans. Pro Football Focus has Howard rated as the No. 41 offensive tackle out of 69 qualifying players.
