The Texans listed rookie Ben Jones as the starting right guard on their most recent depth chart.

Jones rotated with Antoine Caldwell throughout the first seven games, but Caldwell started every week. However, Pro Football Focus has given Caldwell a very poor grade this year, especially as a run blocker, and he is in the last year of his rookie deal. Houston may have used the bye week to execute a permanent change at right guard. The Texans are averaging just 2.96 YPC behind the right guard this season.

Texans selected Georgia C Ben Jones with the No. 99 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

An interesting fit for the Texans' zone scheme, Jones prefers to latch on and control defensive linemen at the point of attack rather than get to the second level. Jones does not possess a real one-step anchor in pass protection but has active and sound hand placement with a lower pad level off the snap. A technician in the middle of the offensive line, the Texans landed a top five center in the draft. Adam Caplan of The Sideline View reported that "some teams" had third-round grades on Jones' game tape.
