Enough with the injuries!

The Texans will put 2 more names onto the injured reserve list as of Monday when Kubiak made his press announcement after a loss to the Jets. Sage Rosenfels is going on IR with a broken thumb. The broken ribs on Mike Flanagan will keep him out for a while. Kubiak brought in veteran Bradley Van Pelt to be ready behind Carr should the team be stricken with more injuries. The team hopes to better their 3-8 record next week in California playing in front of those crazy Oakland Raiders fans.

Bring the pain

The Texans will pay a heavy price for thier win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. 4 players will miss time due to injuries sustained in the game. Zach Weigert tore his ACl and will miss the rest of the season while rookie Eric Winston replaces him at right tackle. Antwan Peek, Lewis Sanders, and Travis Johnson will all be on IR for now. Glenn Earl dislocated a finger but a splint and proper care will have him ready to play. David Carr left in the second half wounded but should recover and be ready this Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Jameel Cook's nagging knee injury will have him miss some practice, let's hope he can retain his form. Will Kubiak make another bold move going for first down at 4th and 1?

Clean as a whistle until the end

The Houston Texans played a great game against the Giants. It was a hit or miss type of thing, and the Texans missed, twice. First with the wide 42 yard field goal attempt by Kris Brown. Then second, when we were in scoring postion, with just 5 minutes left on the clock Jameel Cook fumbled the ball and it was picked up by the Giants who then ran the clock down with 3 first downs. You played great guys. If you keep that up in the second half of the season I might have another victory to be proud of.

Giant Sacs

After attaining several motion penalties in last weeks loss to the Titans, the Texans will need to focus to go up against a defense like The Giants have. I hope Carr has all his pads on straight because he is probably going to get hit this Sunday. With Texans offensive lineman Charles Spencer out for the year and replacement Ephriam Salaam now suffering injuries left tackle is not looking great. To make matters worse, right tackle, Zach Weigert is suffering from knee pain and has missed some practice time this week. Oh no. Things are looking grim as the Texans travel to meet the Giants.
