Tight end James Casey suffered an ankle injury and could be lost for a while. He will undergo an MRI in Houston.

Casey, the third tight end behind Owen Daniels and Joel Dreessen, is one of the Texans' best special teams players, and he's the backup fullback behind Vonta Leach.

Rookie Garrett Graham, the fourth-round pick, will be active as the third tight end against Dallas.

What is it with this ankle injury thing - that is like the 4th person with an ankle problem. Here's hoping it won't be a long recovery for any of the ankles.

I'm kinda surprised that they don't have their ankles taped before the game.

Most of them do...

Dre had his ankles taped and he still got hurt...

I thought I saw them take off his sock and his ankle was not taped.

I'm trying to find an image, but I could have sworn I saw him with his ankles taped...This is as good as I can do for now:

They came and told me he was done. He had a pretty good ankle (injury). I think we were down by seven and they were fixing to kick a field goal at that time, so it didnt look good. We block the field goal. He had them re-tape him. He walked over to me and said Im playing, Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. He tells me hes playing, hes playing.

Also, a lot of them don't get the tape directly on their ankles...They get it over their shoe and sock...Spat is what you call it...
