Worth the weight

HOUSTON The sweets have been eliminated and the carbohydrates intake dramatically reduced. In their place are rational rations of proteins and vegetables, staples for anyone considered body conscious. Texans rookie guard Brandon Brooks needed to make dietary adjustments.

Texans disappointed with Brandon Brooks’ weight at minicamp

The Texans drafted Brandon Brooks in the 3rd round of the 2012 NFL Draft with the intention of having him compete with career backup Antoine Caldwell to replace Mike Brisiel at right guard.

Brooks a big presence for the Texans O-Line

By KRISTIE RIEKEN AP Sports Writer HOUSTON (AP) -- Listed at 346 pounds, Houston rookie guard Brandon Brooks outweighs anyone else on the team and is the heaviest player to ever suit up for the Texans.

Brandon Brooks will be given an opportunity to start for Texans

The Texans have had one of the best and most underrated offensive lines in the league over the past few years, propelling Arian Foster and Ben Tate to form the league’s most deadly running back duo, and helping protect Matt Schaub. Their scheme is a big part of the reason why, but also the continuity and how well the players fit the scheme is huge. Duane Brown, Wade Smith, Chris...
