I was just watching the Kubiak press conference and he mentioned someone tearing their ACL. Anyone know who he was talking about?

When Buchanon had his first return, he appeared to hyperextend his knee in an odd mannor. I think he made an attempt to come back in on another return. He was gone after that. I'm curious as well.:confused:

I think he said Buchanan was day-to-day.

Hmm....I don't know then. I didn't notice anyone else being hurt. Still :confused:

Tough break, I guess we are in the market for another DB.

Alexander was sitting on the ground holding his knee after his one return. Everyone seemed to completely ignore him....he was in the upper left corner of the....er...camera frame, etc. The announcers made absolutely no mention of him at all, IIRC.

Yea. I saw him exiting the stadium after that play, though I missed the actually injury. According to yall so did everyone else. Hope the kid is alright, we can't have all these injuries.

P.S. - P Buc scared me. Every time he returned he got bent into an odd angle.

On SR 610, Kubiak just stated that Roc Alexander tore his ACL and Buchanon tweaked his ankle. Said Buchanon could take a little while to recoop, so they will try Edell Sheppard out on KR/PR. Also, Taylor may try if Shep's not doing well

So when is there going to be an open try out for DBs and punt returners?

Maybe there is going to be an Invincible 2.

They say Alexander is done for the year, does this mean we can pick get another guy from the waiver wire?

absolutely.

If I heard Kubiak correctly they are going to Pick Chris Taylor back up.

But not 100% sure on this. Thought I caught this on his radio show this afternoon

I believe Chris Taylor is already on active roster, and was as of late last week. He's not listed on the Players list but is shown on the depth chart (http://houstontexans.com/team/depth_chart.php?section=TH%20Depth%20Chart). Either way I am pretty sure he was activated; surprised there hasn't been mention of it yet.

I was looking forward to seeing Roc on defense. At this point we legitimately need Faggins back, and the fact that we "need" Faggins is in and of itself cause for concern. We really need P Buc to step it up because we desperately need his athleticism.

Was he on the practice squad and now they are bringing him onto the team maybe.

Believe he went practice squad immediately after being cut and was put on active roster late last week.

Taylor was placed on the active roster and they cut Roy Manning. Taylor was inactive for the game. This makes no sense to me. Today they cut Taylor.

Damn, I didn't even realize Roc got injured. I seen him on the sidelines in the first half and I was wondering if he would get a chance to play, it must have been one of his few times on the field. He was some young DB help we needed, that sucks.
