2016 Houston Texans Player Profile: Andrew McDonald

A closer look at the Houston Texans roster heading into the 2016 training camp.

The Rundown

Arriving to the Texans for the playoff game after Duane Brown went down with a torn quad in the final game of the regular season, Andrew McDonald has been in the NFL since 2012 and has spent time with seven different organizations. Only appearing in two games in that time span, he continues to get looks to possibly make this Texans team.


Andrew McDonald finds himself in a good position. With Brown still recovering and Jeff Adams also in rehab for a knee injury, McDonald finds himself getting reps at right tackle behind Derek Newton. The Texans need a swing tackle and, with Chris Clark looking to be the spot starter with Brown recovering, McDonald has a chance for the 4th offensive tackle spot. 

Roster Situation

It will be between McDonald and Kendall Lamm for depth at the offensive tackle position.
