After receiving the all-clear ahead of training camp, Metchie missed the season opener last weekend against Baltimore due to a hamstring injury.
Back in August, he told the Associated Press he was feeling "110%" and actually felt better than he did in college.
The Texans hope that Metchie can contribute this season to improve an offense led by second-overall pick C.J. Stroud at quarterback.
Metchie had 96 receptions for 1,142 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior at Alabama in 2021. He hasn’t played in a game since tearing a knee ligament in the SEC championship game on Dec. 4, 2021.
