With injuries piling up, Houston Texans bolster roster by trading for Steelers lineman
Just last week, the Texans completed a trade with Arizona sending a 5th round pick to the Cardinals for offensive lineman Josh Jones and a 7th round pick.
Clearly, the Texans feel like they need more help on the o-line as they traded for Steelers center Kendrick Green on Tuesday. Houston dealt away a 2025 6th round pick as compensation. Green was drafted in the third round in 2021 and started at center his rookie year.
Compensation update: It's a 6th rounder from 2025 for Kendrick Green. https://t.co/Wg8qHTuWSB

However, he didn't see the field at all in 2022. He was a backup and was inactive for every game.
The Texans now have three offensive linemen currently injured with Tytus Howard (hand), Kenyon Green (shoulder) and Juice Scruggs (hamstring). Don't be surprised if all three are unavailable against Baltimore.
#Texans could be down three starting offensive linemen against #Ravens including right tackle Tytus Howard (hand surgery) with his status still being determined. Kenyon Green (shoulder) and Juice Scruggs (strained hamstring) both sidelined. @KPRC2

Things are not shaping up well for rookie QB CJ Stroud in his regular season debut, with the team possibly down three starters on the offensive line.
