Just heard on Channel 13 that Sage busted his hand making that tackle on the FG return. Anyone hear anything else?

That stinks if true. Hopefully it is not major.

I posted earlier about the consequences of Kubiak's call and what they might be. If this is true then it bears out what I said. I hope not, because that would be another very bad break for the Texans.

Kubiak said he hurt it but I didn't hear any detail. If Sage is out, that leaves us with promoting Porter from the practice squad to the roster or picking up a street free agent.

Wow. Good thing Carr is tough.

Tim Melton said that he "banged it up" making that special teams tackle before the half. The doctors will look at it tomorrow, they did not say it was broken just injured.

Bradlee Van Pelt was Plummer's backup last year and ran for a touchdown.

He had X-rays taken after the game and those would be evaluated better today. Sage said his hand hurt but didn't seem to think it was broken. Kubiak said he busted up his hand, but did not say he broke it. We'll know the full extent of the injury later today.

FWIW I've heard Sage is facing the IR. Not confirmed at this point however.

This should make things more interesting around here.:francis:

Sucks too, because I admired the guy for that tackle yesterday, and should Carr have been hurt or really stinking, I still think he was a viable backup.

This is clearly the work of Vince . He has placed a curse on this team ... think about it , we stink , he has a big comeback , and Sage breaks his hand . This is not a coincidence ... Vince has placed a voodoo curse on us for not drafting him .

Even if Carr stinks again against the Titans there is nothing to save him from humiliation unless of course somebody's got a curse breaker . If somebody finds a voodoo doll with a #8 on it send it to Reliant Stadium before 12/10/06 .

He (Sage) could throw left handed and get it past 10 yards down the field.

The Bronco's wont be releasing Plummer before the end of the season, so that wont be an issue.

I heard his hand wasn't that bad and then...

Carr found Sage in the trainers room and repeatedly slammed his spikes down on Sage's hand. Carr was laughing the whole time and shouting "you'll never start in place of me!" Then he ran through the locker room, naked no less, screaming "I'm going to continue to be the starter and we are TOTALLY going to suck." Then he told AJ to go deep and mockingly threw a one yard hitch to him. Dude has serious issues.

Kubiak discusses loss
November 27, 2006
By Carmine Pirone
HoustonTexans.com


Tough breaks: Another game and another handful of serious injuries for the Texans as Gary Kubiak revealed Monday that the Texans will add two more names to the IR list this week with another player expected to miss at least the team’s next game this weekend in Oakland .

“Thomas Johnson (hamstring), I would say is a couple of weeks," Kubiak said. "I would think he definitely won’t be able to play this week. Hopefully, in a couple of weeks he’ll be ready to come back. We’ll put two guys on IR tomorrow. Sage Rosenfels will go on IR tomorrow and Mike Flanagan will go on IR. Sage broke his thumb and Mike broke a couple of ribs.”

Rosenfels’ loss is especially hard to swallow as it came thanks to his duties as the holder on the field goal and extra point team. Punter Chad Stanley is usually the holder for Kris Brown, but Stanley cut his hand last week and did not feel comfortable. Rosenfels was an easy replacement.

“I think Sage is an excellent holder, so we just made that decision t go with him and it’s just unfortunate what happened,” Kubiak said.

Rosenfels broke his thumb while making a diving tackle after Brown attempted a 59-yard field goal that fell short. Jets’ kick returner Justin Miller brought the kick out of the end zone and appeared to have some space until Rosenfels brought him down.

“It was very impressive,” Kubiak said of Rosenfels’ tackle. “I don’t know if you’ve all seen it on film, but, you know, when you choose to try something like that, and I don’t know how smart that was on my part because I’ve been a part of that going 108 (yards) a couple of years back in Baltimore, you’re counting on those guys to cover. It looked like we were in trouble there for a second, but for that kid to get up and go make that play down there, that was something. To lose him, that sure hurts though, but it was a (heck) of a play.”

Recent addition Cedric Killings should take Johnson’s spot in the tackle rotation, but the loss of Rosenfels and Flanagan, the team’s starting center, will have a domino effect on the roster in the coming days.

New arm: While Kubiak said that practice squad quarterback Quinton Porter has progressed nicely this season, he added that he didn’t think Porter was ready to back up David Carr.

For that reason, Kubiak has decided to bring in a veteran that he’s worked with in the past to play Carr’s understudy for the remainder of the season.

“We’re bringing in a guy this evening, Bradlee Van Pelt, who I had in Denver for two years,” Kubiak said. “He knows our system. He knows what we’re doing. It will help us to have somebody that will be ready to play real fast if something happened to David. He’s been out on the streets working out for some people. I’m familiar with him. He’s familiar with me."

Center of attention: The loss of Flanagan opens up a gap in the middle of a Texans' offensive line already riddled with injuries. There are two options to replace Flanagan. Houston can either move Steve McKinney, who has worked this season primarily at guard, or play Drew Hodgdon, who has been inactive much of the season.

Kubiak said Monday that both McKinney and Hodgdon will see time, but that he wants to take a good look at the second-year Hodgdon to determine his future value.

“They’ll both work there,” Kubiak said. “We’ll make that decision as the week goes on. Steve’s been around a long time and he’s done a fine job. I will say this: There was going to be a point where I did want to look at Drew. He did play for us early in the season, did some good things, but has not played since Mike got healthy and played well. They both will play, but I want to take a hard look at Drew and the future and see how he’ll handle his role.”

A decision on the starter will be made later in the week.

Running on empty: Houston rushed for just 25 yards in Sunday’s loss, a poor total by any measure. While much of the credit can go to the Jets' defense, Kubiak also wasn’t afraid to place some of the blame on his two running backs Monday. Both Wali Lundy and Samkon Gado did not have their best games of the season, according to their head coach.

“They did not play well, either one of them, and I told them that today,” Kubiak said. “Did they have enough carries? No, that’s my fault, but they’re both better than they played and we’re not always going to block every one of them. They have to make somebody miss, and I want them both to play better this week.”

Kubiak also added that rookie Chris Taylor could see his first NFL action in the coming weeks. When asked if Taylor might get some carries over the next month, Kubiak hinted that Taylor should expect to play.

“Yeah, that’s something we discussed here today,” Kubiak said. “I think he needs some carries for this football team to evaluate him over the next five weeks for the future.”

Welcome back, Jerome: While official word won’t come until Tuesday, it appears as though Pro Bowl kick returner Jerome Mathis will be made active for this week’s game in Oakland .

“I’m leaning toward activating him,” Kubiak said. “He worked out well for us Saturday morning, worked out well today.”

Kubiak said that Mathis will be asked to do more than just return kicks. He’s expected to contribute at receiver, and, according to Kubiak, Mathis is ready to get back on the field for the first time since playing in the Pro Bowl in February.

“He’s ready to play,” Kubiak said. “It’s been a concern because his other leg started to bother him through his workouts and stuff. But we put a little pressure on him and asked him to prove to us that he’s ready to play. I think he’s done that.”

Stanley had a cut on his hand could explain the fumbling of the ball, but does make one beg to ask why he was able to go back in and punt.

Here is it from the Chronicle. Rosenfels and Flanagan:

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/fb/texansfront/4362691.html


All those Texans fans who want quarterback David Carr benched and replaced by Sage Rosenfels are going to be disappointed.

Rosenfels' hand injury suffered in the team's loss Sunday to the Jets has turned out to be more serious than originally stated by the team and the backup has been placed on injured reserve and is out for the season.

Center Mike Flanagan who suffered broken ribs against the Jets also was placed on injured reserve today. Backup center Drew Hodgdon will replace Flanagan.
