Great - now Kubes is letting other teams dictate when our injured players will return to the lineup. He's gonna catch heck for that!

Texans coach Gary Kubiak said this week the Titans haven't ruled out Daniels returning even a bit sooner.

Yeah, but it's not the first time I've seen it made (I've even seen that exact typo mentioned on this MB before).

Oh well, it would be nice to think that O.D. has recovered enough that Bud and Jeff Fisher will let him play a couple of series in the Bucs game.

Seriously, how ****ing hard is it to distinguish between the two teams? The Titans never existed in Houston. Bud Adams' team has been gone long enough for people to stop associating them with Houston. And oh yeah .... we have a pretty good team of our own now. Freakin' amateurs.

They even took the time to link the word "Titans" after they'd already linked the word "Texans". Morons.

I love it when, during the course of a game, the commentator calls us the Oilers.

I'm guessing whether the Texans are 2-0, 1-1, or 0-2 Game 3 of the season will get the label.

How can you get a team name wrong in the same sentence?
"Texans coach Gary Kubiak said this week the [Titans] haven't ruled out Daniels returning even a bit sooner."
The last time I checked, the "Titans" have nothing to do with Kubiak's decisions! Get it straight ya big dummy!

Can't wait to see OD on the field again and I will pick him up in fantasy! :texflag:

Agreed. We found out the hard way how important OD really was to our offense. Took us 4 weeks to get adjusted.

I think the adjustment process wouldn't be nearly as bad this time with the development of Casey, but he sure is one hell of a tool to have.

Don't forget Dreessen. Over the last 4 games he was on pace for 832 yards projected to a season. Now he has had even more time to settle in with Schaub.

http://www.myfoxhouston.com/dpp/sports/nfl/100819-texans-te-daniels-expects-great-news-from-doctors

Houston - For Houston Texans Pro Bowl tight Owen Daniels two days of visits with doctors next week will let him know if he'll be ready to go for the opening of the 2010 season.

Daniels suffered a torn anterior crucuate ligament in his right knee during the eighth game of the 2009 season.

He has targeted game one of the regular season as his return and he and the team have said for weeks he is on schedule.

Tuesday Daniels will undergo an MRI on his right knee and then he'll visit with Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Alabama on Wednesday.
Andrews performed the surgery.

"I got a doctor's visit Tuesday, typical MRI checkup and then I have to fly to Alabama on Wednesday," Daniels said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports (http://boards.houstontexans.com/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=309716#). " Dr. Andrews did the surgery. He and management want him to check me off and make sure I'm alright.

"This is the most important visit. This is it. If there's a problem with this visit then I don't know what I'm going to do."

Daniels laughed and smiled as he said that because no one connected to the Texans expects bad news for him next week.

"There shouldn't be any problems," Daniels said. "I'm not expecting any.
I'm expecting them to say I look great (http://boards.houstontexans.com/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=309716#).

"I know how my body feels. I know how I'm doing and I feel great, but you always want that kind of blessing from the doctor who did the surgery on you to say you're okay, you're good to go."

Texans general manager Rick Smith and head coach Gary Kubiak wll second that motion.

He was pretty much implied. I just think Casey has alot more upside than Dreesen does. And Dreesen doesn't quite receive the same attention a relatively big name like OD does.

Casey is simply more athletic. He's stronger and has good hands. I honestly don't know why we wouldn't use him as an H-back. He's perfect for it.

Tight end Owen Daniels is hoping to finally join in on Texans practice next week.

“I’m starting to feel like I’m back to normal again,” Daniels said.

Daniels, who is on active/physically unable to perform list, will undergo an MRI in Houston on Tuesday and visit with Dr. James Andrew in Birmingham, Ala., on Wednesday.

“It’s a five-minute visit, but he wants to see me to make sure everything looks good,” Daniels said.

Since Daniels suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the eighth game at Buffalo, the plan has been to try to have him ready for the opening game against Indianapolis on Sept. 12. Head coach Gary Kubiak mentioned earlier in the week that if Daniels were to be cleared to play before preseason ends, he could possibly play in the last preseason game on Sept. 2 against Tampa Bay.

Daniels said the wait has been long enough, and he has almost fully overcome all of the obstacles after the knee injury.

“Getting past the mental block of forgetting about the route I was running when I heard it pop has been the hardest part,” Daniels said. “It was really spooky at first, but I’m just about ready to go

# Welker's comeback is extraordinary. Daniels is hoping to be cleared to practice next week. He's been working out like a fiend by himself. about 12 hours ago via web

# I watched Texans TE Owen Daniels blow out a knee in the 8th game and he's not ready. I watched Wes Welker do the same in the 16th game.

I know CND knows this answer, but am just thinking out loud here: Is there different types of tears? What if Welker's tear was different, in some form or fashion, than Daniels/ tear?

I think there could be anatomically-related reasons as to why one person can recover faster (seemingly, though what if Welker blows it out TOMORROW?) than another. Seems plausible.

I would think repeated tears, over the course of many years, points to more of the same down the road. Again, just using simple math and not really sure of the science or validity behind my theory. I'm just spit-ballin' here...

There is so many angles and a depth to the condition and functions of the human body. I truly admire physicians for what they have to know and how they have to retain and USE that information each day. Remarkable.

His other ACL injuries (one including an MCL) occured in the other knee. Unless his other knee has residual instability, it is unlikely that his history would affect his present recovery. Whatever caused his "set back" we were never told. As you all have pointed out, there is a weight difference.......60 pounds, which could possibly be A factor. But keep in mind that Welker's knee suffered both an ACL and MCL tear, which theoretically, should be A factor in his recovery also. So that does leave us with yet another theoretical point. The decision to put him back on the field may be TOO SOON, which would exposed him to increased risk of recurrent injury. And again, I guess, unexplainable "miraculous" recoveries can happen.

OD's recovery time is on par for that injury, so I'm not too worried about him being ready. I am worried about his knees in general though. If he re-tears the same ligament in either knee, he's probably done.

I don't think Welker has Wolverine X-Factor healing, but I do think his primary injury was probably the MCL, with the ACL being damaged to a lesser degree. That's all speculation of course, but I'll stand by it as long as I don't have to put money down.

As you pointed out, we have no details of the extent of the ACL tear, so a partial tear of that ligament could be a possibility..........and the recovery, if based on mostly a complete MCL tear could explain the shorter recovery, which would be expected (as compared to a complete ACL tear). Nice potential deduction, BC.
