Texans HC Gary Kubiak characterized OLB Mario Williams (knee) as "day-to-day" at his Monday press conference.
The Texans appear to have dodged a major bullet with their superstar pass rusher. He'll likely be limited in practice this week, but it would be an upset if he doesn't take the field against the Steelers on Sunday. Sep 26 - 4:53 PM

Thanks guys. We could used Walter, JJ, and Mario 100% next game. I will continue to hope Harris replaces KJ.

With Kubiak running the team the best you could hope for is that Jackson gets lost on his way to the stadium on gameday

Very lucky about Mario. I'm sure he'll play, he's a tough guy and seems like he's never 100% or dealing with some kind of injury but is always out there battle fighting.

saw him on the bike, but for some reason I missed the knee bending on the replay...I was probably just in shock and didn't feel like rewinding.

haha well then lets make it happen. I'm sure wade would appreciate it. "He's like a butcher trying to cut meat with a butter knife. He's like this is what they gave me to cut it with :runaway:"

Seeing Mario on the stationary bicycle this soon gives me little solace.

When Mario first injured his knee, I saw it distinctly hyperextend. The classic injury associated with this is a posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tear.

The PCL is located near the back of the knee joint. It attaches to the back of the femur (thighbone) and the back of the tibia (shinbone) behind the ACL.

The PCL is the primary stabilizer of the knee and the main controller of how far forward the tibia moves in relationship to the femur. It is essentially a “check ligament” that blocks the knee joint from folding forward (as compared to the normal back folding of this joint). If this abnormal forward folding (hyperextension) does occur, the “check ligament,” i.e., the PCL, has been over-powered therefore sprained/torn to some extent. I should also mention that the PCL has also been shown to be involved in assisting in the prevention (checking) of medial-lateral (side-to-side) and rotatory movements.


http://education.advancedorthopedic.net/media/img/841/knee_pcl_intro01.jpg

Grade I: Partial tears of the PCL.

Grade II: Isolated, complete tear to the PCL.

Grade III: Tear of the PCL with other associated ligament injury such as an MCL or ACL).


Most patients receive physical therapy treatments after a PCL injury. Therapists treat swelling and pain with the use of ice, electrical stimulation, and rest periods with your leg supported in elevation.

Even in the case of a Grade I sprain, exercises are used to help regain normal movement of joints and muscles. Range-of-motion exercises are usually started right away with the goal of quickly regaining full movement in the knee. This includes careful stretching...........and the use of a stationary bike, because it does not result in even full normal extension at the knee. Shortly after exercises are also given to improve the strength of the quadriceps muscles on the front of the thigh. As symptoms ease and strength improves, specialized exercises to improve knee stability will begin. When they are returned to moderate action, they commonly wear a functional knee brace. These braces are designed to replace knee stability when the PCL doesn't function properly. They help keep the knee from giving way during moderate activity, but they can give a false sense of security and won't always protect the knee during sports that require heavy cutting, jumping, or pivoting.

Even with a minor Grade I sprain, you would expect at least a 2-3 week recovery.

Remember, this was the same injury (PCL sprain/tear) I wrote about in 2007 re. Andre Johnson......and he ended up missing 7 weeks.

Again, we will need to wait for more information. But by this time, an MRI will have been obtained and the Texans already have the results.

It's sort of strange that in the almost hour and a half long 610 radio segment this morning with John McClain and Rick Smith, injuries were discussed concerning all of the key players..............not ONE comment by either of them or a single question directed to them by the hosts about Mario's injury or status.

I mentioned last week (I believe Sat. nite) that only Practice Status through Thursday was available.......and that there was no Game Status filled in at all.
Week 3 Injury Practice Status for Friday and Game Status were not filled out until AFTER the Saints game.

It's pretty pathetic when you have to go to other sites to find accurate up-to-date injury reports on your own team.

Steelers Vs. Texans Injury Report: Mike Wallace Limited

Steelers receiver Mike Wallace (ribs) limited participant in practice but said he will play Sunday in Houston against the Texans and will not wear a flak jacket.

Sep 28, 2011 - The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night that wasn't without it's losses. Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace was limited in practice on Wednesday due to a rib injury he suffered in the game, but he is expected to play (exhale, fantasy owners) and will not wear a flak jacket. Also to note however, is that an already banged up Steelers offensive line continues to get injured. Starting left tackle Jonathan Scott (ankle) and right guard Doug Legursky (shoulder) both did not practice. The Steelers have struggled to rush the football so far during the 2011 season and more hits to their offensive line will only limit that even further against the Houston Texans.

Wide receiver Arnaz Battle and defensive end Brett Keisel, both also sat out practice with knee injuries. Hines Ward, James Farrior, and Aaron Smith also did not practice but their absence was not injury related.

For the Houston Texans, star wide receiver Andre Johnson missed practice with a knee/toe injury. Also out were defensive back Sherrick McManis and running back Derrick Ward. Joel Dreessen, Kareem Jackson, Jacoby Jones, Kevin Walter, and Mario Williams (knee) were all limited.

Still :cricket: on the nature of Mario's injury. Not on the talk shows. Not in interviews. Not a peep in the extensive QUOTES (http://www.houstontexans.com/news/quotes.html) segments on the home Texans site.

Again, seeing Mario on the "limited practice status" yesterday still leaves me quite concerned seeing that he has suffered a hyperextension injury.

Because the first symptoms of an isolated PCL tear may not initially interfere significantly with an athlete's ability to play sports, many athletes with PCL injuries wait several weeks before they even see a doctor. The athlete may notice that he cannot perform on the level that he could before. He usually describes vague or nonspecific symptoms that the injured knee simply doesn't feel the way it should. If ignored and not properly rested and rehabbed, it will progress with further damage and further deterioration in performance.

right as usual I fear. without being fully explosive off the edge anyone else foresee Mario Williams bumping back to DE, officially or will Wade insist on a less than 100% Mario Williams remain @ OLB? :deadhorse

Umm, by rule, sure you would. Umm, the "plan around" part, I'm not real sure but I thinks that's pretty much about what it's about. :kitten:
