HOUSTON - Texans offensive tackle Chris Clark has only been with the team for 12 months but he’s been a valuable member ever since he arrived in Houston on August 31, 2015.
Clark was acquired from the Denver Broncos for a 7th round draft pick in the 2016 Draft, and he played in 11 games last season.
He started only four games in 2015, but he’s been a reliable piece to the offensive line puzzle for head coach Bill O’Brien.
O’brien will be counting on Clark again as the 2016 season begins, with left tackle Duane Brown not expected to be ready for next week’s season opener.
Clark is expected to get the start at left tackle, a position he’s been planted at the entire preseason.
He is native of New Orleans, La. and played collegiately at Southern Mississippi but went un-drafted out of college.
He first signed as a free agent with Tampa Bay in 2008. Houston is his 4th stop in his NFL career.
