Per McGobbler tweet, he's suffered a torn tricep

Texans placed OT Rashad Butler on IR. Brought up Andrew Gardner from P squad. Signed Cody Wallace 2 P sqd.

Butler, top reserve at both OT spots, suffered torn triceps. That's a blow to O line.

Unfortunate but he's backing up 2 guys who've never missed a game, minus the DB suspension.

Now this is going to be a HUGE problem. We're going to need a swing ASAP.........and not a rookie. I'd be curious to know if this were a football injury..............or weight training injury.

That's what I was wondering as well.

Jinxed! Preciate it! :winky:

We're f-ed if one of our starters go down. Gardner? Ugh!

Is tackle really a high-risk position for injury? I'm not worried.

Guys in the trenches get their legs rolled on all the time. I'm worried especially if its Duane that goes down

Yeah, this is how we lost Pitts. Nick Mangold is out a few weeks after getting rolled up on last week. It happens a lot during inside runs because the linemen are trying to block around the RB and they get into a confined spaces with 300 pound guys going to the ground.

Second thought was to wonder what Ephraim Salaam is doing these days.

Linemen, either side, are at the heart of the team. You gotta have 'em. Not good news, but survivable if they get someone in quickly enough.

I imagine Newton is the ''next man up'' if we need another tackle but yeah, not a great situation to be in.

Not good news.....

I am also expecting some type of "payback" this week for our offensive line hurting a Saints D-lineman during a chop-block in pre-season.

Chop block or cut block?

This is really bad Rashad is a Swing T that has starter quality. Its going to be a big drop off at T's back up quality.

Rough. Hopefully Newton is ready. The options after Butler were slim, luckily we have 2 guys that are tough, solid OTs as starters.

Would there be a difference in recovery time or ability to get back to 100% if it was a football injury vs. weight traning injury?

Not that it helps now but may need to upgrade OT priority in next years draft.

No, there wouldn't be a difference in recovery time or ability..........just a difference of how I possibly might view the training staff's methods.

EDIT: The L.A. Times (http://www.latimes.com/sports/sns-tsn-abn-butler-hou-20110922,0,7975849.story) writes that the injury occurred during practice.

This is unfortunate. I was hoping he'd fight Winston for the RT spot.

The L.A. Times story said that Andrew Gardner will take his place.

So everything's cool. We have Andrew freaking Gardner.

Well, obviously.

What part of Andrew freaking Gardner don't you people understand. Man's a beast. He's a beast and a half actually. They weren't holding him back on the practice squad to "develop" him. They put him there to keep him from injuring defensive ends and linebackers all around the league. He's on the practice squad for their safety.

The Texans were hoping they could teach him to use his abilities in a controlled manner kind of like Professor X training young X-Men.

Shit just got real. Andrew freaking Gardner IS ON THE ROSTER! :evil:


please let all of that be true.

He's not really on the practice squad. He's chained up in a cage three miles below Reliant.

And the chains just came off.

Here's one of the few pictures I could find of this monster.

http://i215.photobucket.com/albums/cc272/Hervoyel/AndrewGardner.png

Word is this was taken when he was nine years old. He was already 6'6" and 270 pounds.

At Georgia Tech Tashard Choice ran so well not because the line opened big holes for him but because he was afraid Andrew Gardner was going to eat him if he caught him. True story.

MB posters seem to be getting nervous about Ryans. I'm cautious but not too. I'm probably open to taking BPA in top 4 rounds but to address needs.

I can see WR, ILB, DT working itself out with roster guys. Not so with oline. I think what we have will not get much better & while starters don't miss much time, we are thin across the line.



Above is mine from exchange of emails concerning next draft.
