Jaguars signed OT Brennan Williams.

The No. 89 overall pick of the 2013 draft, Williams has yet to appear in an NFL game. He underwent microfracture surgery in the summer of 2013. Standing in at 6-foot-6, 318 pounds, Williams is still only 24. He could compete for a roster spot if he's finally back to full health.

Texans waived/failed physical OT Brennan Williams.

The No. 89 overall pick of last year's draft, Williams missed his entire rookie season as he recovered from microfracture surgery, and still isn't 100 percent. It's quite an admission of failure on the Texans' part, who have now waived each of their 2013 third-rounders. DE Sam Montgomery was cut loose last October. In theory, Williams' draft pedigree will earn him a look on waivers, but it's quite possible his knee is simply too much of an issue.

The Texans are unsure whether 2013 third-round OT Brennan Williams (microfracture surgery) will be ready for training camp.

"I don't really know. I'm not sure," conceded coach Bill O'Brien. The 89th pick in last year's draft, Williams has endured ongoing knee problems since leaving North Carolina. The Texans obviously can't count on him for a 2014 role.
Wed, May 28, 2014 09:09:00 PM

Texans second-year OT Brennan Williams (knee) said he'll be ready for OTAs.

"I'll be back on the field for spring," Williams said. "I'm really looking forward to it because I haven't been healthy in, I dunno, two years now. So just to be able to be at my full capacity, be able to go out there and be myself is really exciting." Williams underwent shoulder surgery as a senior at North Carolina before missing his entire rookie season after micro fracture surgery. He could eventually push RT Derek Newton in Houston.

Texans OT Brennan Williams (knee, injured reserve) has undergone microfracture surgery.

Micofracture is typically a career-clouding surgery, but the 2013 third-rounder has youth and time on his side. He has 11 months to get healthy for next summer's training camp. The Texans had been hopeful Williams would push RT Derek Newton for a starting job, but now there's no guarantee he'll be ready to do so even next season. It's worth noting Williams' microfracture was not on the same knee that troubled him all offseason. So he's now dealing with two suspect knees. Not good.

Texans placed OT Brennan Williams on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

A third-round pick, Williams missed all of OTAs and training camp recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, and has yet to be cleared for practice. Derek Newton will open the season as the Texans' starting right tackle. It's a trouble spot for Houston.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 08:31:00 PM

Texans third-round OT Brennan Williams is undergoing an MRI on his surgically-repaired knee.

Williams underwent arthroscopic surgery after "tweaking" his knee in rookie camp. He missed all of OTAs. Coach Gary Kubiak has cautioned not to "read too much" into the test, but it's certainly a concern. Once believed to be a contender for the Texans' right-tackle job, it's no longer even certain Williams will be ready for Week 1.
Tue, Jul 30, 2013 05:03:00 PM

Texans signed No. 89 overall pick OT Brennan Williams to a four-year contract.

Though blessed with starting-caliber athleticism, Williams enters the NFL as a project recovering from an offseason knee scope. He'll be a long shot for year-one impact. Derek Newton is expected to keep his starting job at right tackle.
Mon, Jul 22, 2013 01:46:00 PM

Texans third-round OT Brennan Williams required arthroscopic surgery on the knee he "tweaked" at rookie minicamp.

An initial MRI indicated Williams didn't need surgery, but he later had the scope. The injury will likely knock Williams out of consideration for the right tackle job. Manned by Derek Newton in 2012, it's Houston's biggest weakness.
Sat, Jul 20, 2013 10:57:00 PM

Texans third-round OT Brennan Williams has yet to return to practice since "tweaking" his knee in rookie minicamp.

Williams wasn't expected to be sidelined long, but is now looking shaky for minicamp. He should be ready for training camp, where he'll push incumbent RT Derek Newton. Newton is still recovering from patellar tendon surgery. If the season started today, the Texans would roll with Ryan Harris at right tackle.
Mon, Jun 3, 2013 10:42:00 AM

Texans third-round OT Brennan Williams "tweaked" his knee Saturday and will sit out Sunday's rookie minicamp practice.

A Saturday afternoon MRI confirmed Williams won't need surgery. Williams could be shaky for OTAs, but is in no danger of missing minicamp or training camp. Williams is expected to compete for the right tackle job with incumbent Derek Newton.
Sat, May 11, 2013 06:26:00 PM

No. 89 pick Brennan Williams is expected to compete for the Texans' starting right tackle job.

Inconsistent incumbent Derek Newton is coming off patellar tendon surgery, but is due back by camp. 6-foot-6, 318 with 34-inch arms, Williams has ideal length, build, and athleticism for Houston's zone-run scheme but needs a lot of technique work. The Texans' right tackle job will be an open camp competition.
Mon, Apr 29, 2013 05:52:00 PM

Texans selected North Carolina OT Brennan Williams with the No. 89 overall pick.

The Texans get a developmental prospect who could eventually push RT Derek Newton. Williams (6-foot-6, 318) started 22 games at right tackle for the Tar Heels before a torn labrum (shoulder) cut his senior year four contests short. Williams has 34-inch arms and plus athleticism, running a 5.20 forty at his Pro Day with a 28.5-inch vertical. Smart (35 Wonderlic score) and offering upside, CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang has suggested Williams could prove a better NFL than college tackle.
