Texans third-round OT Martinas Rankin is recovering from foot surgery and will not be ready for training camp.

Rankin is expected to be ready for Week 1, but it is unclear when he will be cleared between then and now. Rankin suffered the injury in rookie minicamp. "He’s doing well," coach Bill O'Brien said. "I think he’s picked up the things we’ve taught him. He’s picked them up well and I think he has a good future here. We’ll see how it goes." Rankin, who is undersized for a tackle, could have been in the mix at right tackle, but this probably takes him out of it.

Texans selected Mississippi State OL Martinas Rankin with the No. 80 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Rankin (6’4/308) spent two years as a Bulldog after transferring from JUCO, mainly manning left tackle and earning first-team All-SEC from the conference’s coaches as a senior. Old-ish for a rookie (24 in October) but exceptionally bright, Rankin twice earned SEC Academic Honor Roll and has dabbled at all five positions on the line. Most NFL scouts viewed Rankin as a guard or even center before the draft. O-Line guru Lance Zierlein compared Rankin to underrated Seahawks C Justin Britt. Still, Houston's glaring tackle need suggests Rankin may get a chance to stay at his college position, at least initially.
