his hamstring ripped completely off the bone, and he might have torn at least one knee ligament.

Crap.

That seriously sucks, I bet Dunta is pissed, he is a competitor.

I'm going to guess and say it will probably take 2.5 years to completely heal, but we all know he's going to try to come back next year and it will slow down his recovery :shocked

I wish him the best.

I'd be interested to hear about similar injuries as well. But, to me, a torn ACL or PCL or whatever sounds a lot better than hearing a hammy completely torn off the bone. That sounds to me like extensive surgery and a lot of rehab just so he can walk. Charles Spencer's injury is probably less severe and he doesn't even need the explosiveness required like a CB needs. This SUCKS. The Texans are cursed with injuries and this is the icing on the $##$^ cake.

GrandeDavid
11-04-2007, 07:59 PM
That is awful, I feel bad for him. What a bizarre injury...and sounds pretty damn painful!

houstonhurricane
11-04-2007, 07:59 PM
That is absolutely the worst news we could have received. Ripping the muscle from the bone sounds pretty serious, adding a potential ACL tear, could mean a very "challenging" recovery.

I am going to keep Dunta in my prayers and hope we see him back in uniform sooner than later.

TexansSeminole
11-04-2007, 08:03 PM
I know this is kind of soon, but if we can't field Dunta for a couple years our secondary needs to be completely rebuilt.

Yeah, I would be interested to hear his thoughts as well. I imagine he will get an MRI tomorrow, and likley go into surgery by the end of the week.

I know that Griffey had a similar injury in July '04. He was shut down for the season. In 2005 he started the season in the starting lineup and needed a couple weeks to get back into Jr like form. So, if he was injured in July 04 and returned late April(lets say May) '05, he would have been out for almost 9 full months. If we apply this to Dante, he may be back by late August early Sep '05. That is if he has the same issue as Griff, if he gets the same procedure, and if he is on the same healing time frame.

ObsiWan
11-04-2007, 08:08 PM
well, this definitely changes the off-season personnel strategy doesn't it?
If Smith and Kubiak stay with their "we're not counting on anyone who's injured being able to come back..." then we must draft a shutdown CB early on or make a big play for Samuels.


and at least no one said, "why couldn't it have been....."

Day-umn.

At least D-Rob is young. And surgeons are really good these days....

Heck, I tore my left bicep completely off the bone and watched it slide up my arm. 6 months later I was working out again and 9 months later I was pretty well normal again.

Sooooo, I guess where I'm going is if a twenty something non-athlete can destroy his arm and the run of the mill orthapedists can put him back to 100%, then how much better should we expect it to go for Dunta? A world class athlete with world class physicians working on him.

Just keep him in your prayers and also pray for the doctors and everyone associated with his rehab and recovery.

And now the 20 million dollar question.... what corners are out there?

Bulluck53
11-04-2007, 08:17 PM
Hate to see this, he one of the great young corners in this league. Hopefully his recovery doesn't take as long as some think. I hear it looked pretty bad.

Poor D-Rob. This just confirms I'm now 100% on drafting the best man to man shut down cornerback in the draft.

As far as Asanti Samuel goes...(A) he's going to be terribly expensive (B) Do we even know he will fit our defensive scheme? Does he play the way we want him to or is he a really good Zone CB?? and (C) if we MUST get a cb like him is he worth completely changing our secondary scheme??

This is the worst thing that could've happened to the Texans in my opinion. Dunta is my all time favorite Texan and is the heart and soul of our team. He has more heart than anyone in the NFL and is the p4p hardest hitter imo. He is the last guy I would want hurt, this injury is worse than any blowout loss in my eyes even one to the Titans where Vince scores 10 touchdowns :(

YoungTexanFan
11-04-2007, 10:06 PM
Wow. This sucks. I really don't know what to do.

We are in a position to change our scheme completely anyways, because one, Faggins shouldn't be on the roster next year, and two, Hoke shouldn't have a job next year either. However, this puts us in an odd quandry.

Nawzer
11-04-2007, 10:17 PM
This is crushing news for our football team. Pretty much took all the joy out of the victory today. Hopefully one day he'll be able to return but from the looks of it it doesn't sound too good right now. Our weak secondary just got even more weaker. We'll have to endure the likes of DeMarcus Faggins for the remainder rest of the season...Really don't have much else to add other than this being really a bad news for us.

The diaster is not that he is hurt. Put on Rick Smith's shoes for minute. They need to resign this guy and lock him in. Now he is hurt...bad. So what do you do Mr. Junior GM ? My guess is they were going to offer the second best player on the team a new long term deal with a sweet signing bonus to sooth the pain of loosing after this season.

Now the question becomes how much, How long, or even if , you redo his deal. Lock him up long term ? With the injury ? Brutal I know. But as much as we love the guy, the bottom line is they make a mistake with this, it's another in long list of mistakes they've made over the last six years. And no, I don't know what the answer is. Just saying.

I'm just saying it, too. His injury, and especially, the severity of it, changes EVERYTHING. Not yet knowing the results of the MRI, going on the assumption that his hamstring is torn completely off the bone, along the with an ACL torn, the question for Rick Smith is . .

. . even when, or if, he comes back, will he be the same. How good will a Dunta Robinson that's lost a step be?

Trust me Lucky, you're going to get sick of "undisciplined and stupid" just as fast as you did "soft".

I've seen this act before. I watched Jerry Glanville's stupid Oiler teams play like that and have no interest in going through the same kind of cycle with the Texans.

12. Wow. Could we have had more fouls on that Raider drive in Q4? I'm sitting on my couch sweating, hoping that the defense could pull their heads out of their rear ends long enough to get a stop and not negate it with a dumb play. As I'm doing this, I'm thinking "Wow, this speaks volumes about how shaky my confidence is in these guys that I can't relax deep in the fourth quarter with a 14 point lead. Against the Raiders."

That was what, one drive in the game? Granted, the facemask call was legit. But a couple of the personal fouls were borderline. Personally, I'd rather see them hit first and be second guessed than not hit at all.

All things considered, I'm satisfied with the defense's performance in Oakland. The best effort I've seen from them since the Carolina game.

Has the Texans defense under Richard Smith ever looked good against a good offense? Usually they require the offense to shoot itself in the foot.

BTW, here's my write up on Dunta's injury for FanHouse:

Most Depressing Texans Win Ever: Dunta Robinson Out For Season (And Maybe Longer) (http://sports.aol.com/fanhouse/2007/11/05/most-depressing-texans-win-ever-dunta-robinson-out-for-season/)

I guess it could have been worse. The Texans could have flubbed the onside kick and then got the loss and Robinson out.

Blah.

Yeah, they were better in some areas. Bennet and Demps were a bright spot for sure. And I am glad that they played with some emotion this game. I just happen to subscribe to the theory that you can play with emotion and fire and not shoot yourself in the foot by being stupid.

Call it "controlled rage," call it whatever. Just get off the field on third down without doing something boneheaded.

In that drive, the call on Amobi was a lot of crap. It was a clean hit.
I dunno for sure, but I think another call in that drive for a personal foul
was also very debateable. On the other hand, the face mask call on Maddox
was clearly a flagrant foul which should have been flagged.
I do know the call in the EZ on Demps was total crap. He did exactly what he was suppose to do - it was a very hard hit, but not at all dirty as Demps
lowered his head to avoid a helmet-to-helmet collision.

That's just it man, it's all about controlled aggression and maintaining your composure. In every single game they play somebody has a good chance of getting a crap call against them. Somebody is going to be victimized by poor officiating. It literally happens all the time. The officials are going to miss something and throw a flag (or not throw a flag) at the worst possible moment. That's part of the game and how you respond to that is a reflection of how prepared you are to play and how well coached you are.

When the Texans get a lousy call like they did when Demps supposedly hit that guy "helmet to helmet" and the team stiffens up and holds their opponent to a FG like they did in the 3rd quarter that's a good thing. they kept their composure and went back to work. When they keep a drive alive with penalties like they did in the fourth quarter and give Oakland 7 points that's a sign that they still have work to do.

It was their best effort since Carolina but I wasn't satisfied with it. Like I said, any reasonably good team would have beaten us badly yesterday.

OK, I've read through all of these posts and there is alot of speculation about what will happen to Dunta, but I would like the real "low down" on how bad the injury is. So please C-N-D, give us the real scoop! The good, the bad, and the ugly! Signed, a depressed but hopefull fan! :gotexans1

In that drive, the call on Amobi was a lot of crap. It was a clean hit.
I dunno for sure, but I think another call in that drive for a personal foul
was also very debateable. On the other hand, the face mask call on Maddox
was clearly a flagrant foul which should have been flagged.
I do know the call in the EZ on Demps was total crap. He did exactly what he was suppose to do - it was a very hard hit, but not at all dirty as Demps
lowered his head to avoid a helmet-to-helmet collision.

I remember that play because Mario was being put in a sleeper hold that every wrestling fan would have been proud of. Of course that was completely missed.

This year has been the worst I have ever seen as far as reafs stinking as much if not more than a movie starring Paris Hilton.
