Texans OLB Whitney Mercilus said his torn pectoral muscle is back to "100 percent."
The injury limited Mercilus to just five games last season but he shouldn't have any restrictions heading into OTAs. The 27-year-old earned All-Pro recognition while grading out as PFF's No. 6 3-4 outside linebacker during his breakout 2016 campaign. With Mercilus and J.J. Watt back at full strength, Houston's front seven should be much-improved in 2018. Apr 17 - 1:50 PM
