Uh, oh! Houston Texans “Dream” Season Already Plagued with Foot Injuries
Posted Aug 07 2009 12:18pm
I have been a fan of the Houston Texans since the team started. I’ve been at almost every home game and love watching them. I don’t get nearly as frustrated as some others by past seasons. You see, I grew up a fan of the New York Jets. Yes, the Jets are the team that passed up Dan Marino for Kenny O’Brien. If that’s not frustrating, I don’t know what is.
Being a Jets fan all these years, I’ve learned a few things. One of those things is never predict that this year will be THE year…at least not publicly. I wish my Texans learned the same thing. All reports from the team, unofficially, and certainly the press have been hyping this team as our first playoff team. Even before the first snap of preseason!
Well, Tuesday’s workout saw two injuries of starters that can have a significant impact on the team. Center Chris Myers suffered a high ankle sprain on a play that Coach Gary Kubiak called sloppy. This will keep him out indefinitely, but he hopefully can return during the season. It all depends on the extent of he injury and how quickly he is able to rehabilitate. Starting Cornerback Jacques Reeves fractured his fibula in a collision with Andre Davis during another play that also sounds pretty sloppy. He’ll be out six to eight weeks.
Fortunately both players will not need surgery, but it is a major hit to the Texans expectations for their season. No one wants to see them healthy more than I do…I’m ready for a winning season and I’ll be there watching and cheering them on.
