Harris also has a history with injury that might recur (if I remember correctly.)

If both Williams and Quessenberry can stand upright, one of them might see some work at LT.
There's also Brandon Brooks who the Texans said they might try out at OT.

I don't think anything is written in stone yet.

Offensive tackle Brennan Williams' father, Brent Williams, had an 11-year career with New England, Seattle and the New York Jets. Williams was asked the significance of following in his father's footsteps. "It was extremely important," he said. "It was an expectation that we always had to make it to this level. I'm truly blessed to be where I am today, but now it's time for me to carve out my own footsteps."

The Texans drafted Williams to compete on the right side with Derek Newton, last year's starter who's coming off surgery to repair a patellar tendon in his knee. "If he comes out and wins the position outright, great," offensive line coach John Benton said. "If not, he's got to learn to play left (tackle), too. That's how it works."
