Anyone hear any news on him lately? How's he doing? Also, what's going on with Benni?

Walker had a groin issue. Babin had the strained abdomen. Bennie and Casserly both recently said that they expect him to play at some point this year but they don't have a time table for his return.

Bennie will not play this season and probably will not play for the Texans or any NFL team ever. Sports hernia is taking a toll on the poor guy. As Infantrycak has pointed out, Casserly has stated he expects to see Joppru on the field this year. I heard that myself.

:thumbup I thought I'd never get to see that guy contribute....that's definitely good to hear since we got him with a what....2nd round pick was it?

Yeah, a second round pick. It feels almost as bad as picking up boselli, and him not playing. I expected Joppru to be the starter this year. Sad stuff. I just hope he plays sooner than later.

Matt Murphy is reminding me of Billy Miller. Unknown but showing the kind of production that gave him the opportunity to be a starter. Above that he run blocks better than Miller.

Based on the one pre season game I saw and the ones I listened to on NFL.com, he looks (sounds?) pretty good. As thin as we are at TE, I suspect he makes it and Holloway gets cut. It will all depend on what the coaches have seen in camp, practices and on film though.

I hear what your saying, I just doubt that they will give up on a high second round pick yet if there is a possibilty he will make it back. Holoway is a good blocker and not such a good catcher, but he does know the system and that may be the actual deciding factor of whether he or Murphy make the team. Since we are emphasising the run, it may tilt towards Jabari.
