HOUSTON (SportsRadio 610) -- Texans left tackle Laremy Tunsil has not practiced this week due to an illness.

The illness is not COVID-19-related, but it held it Tunsil from practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Interim head coach Romeo Crennel said Tunsil is being further evaluated Friday, and he was later listed on the injury report as "questionable" for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

"I hope that he's feeling better," Crennel said. "He's been under the weather. We'll find out today how much improvements he's made, then we'll be able to make some determinations at that point."

Tunsil has played in every game for the Texans this season.

Tunsil missed a game last season against the Jaguars in London with a shoulder injury, and was held from the final game of the season against the Titans after the Texans had already secured a spot in the playoffs.
