OK. Now there's something to see.

If I'm not mistaken, I saw them playing Braman at OLB in rotation with Mercilus and Barwin.

If you've ever pulled a groin, you know 3 to 4 weeks is a conservative estimate.
And then of course since he can't run during that period, he will lose his conditioning. Maybe with a bye week he'll be ready to go in the playoffs which would be mid-January.

Don't mean to do that. I like Brooks, he just hasn't brought his game this year. At the least i see Barwin making some contributions in other areas, where Brooks Reed just sort of fades into the dust on most of his plays. Those who have been asking for more Mercilus time are about to get it.

I guess the silver lining here is the Mercilus draft.
I hope he steps up big time.

Braman may have the best edge speed of any of the olbs. I think the Texans lose something versus the run but may get a better pass rush with Mercilus and Braman.

Barwin will probably be moving to the SAM, which should suit him better with his added weight.

Making it back fully healthy for the playoffs is far from a certainty.

Well, I'm the one that posted it in another thread, and I made the disclaimer that I couldn't swear to the accuracy of it, but it was out there (I'll never forget the John Clayton injury report regarding Kevin Walter).

Tania Ganguli's got an article on Chron.com in which she describes it as "at least" 3-4 weeks, plus she's also got this out there on her twitter account:

Reed could be out up to 6 weeks. Even if it takes that long, he should be back for the playoffs. #Texans

I think they will be OK; they just have to.

Rudd made a couple of good plays.
Sharpston is getting back in playing shape.
And Merci had shown some flash.
Braman also has some burst and Nading has plenty of experience.

We just need all the guys to come back for the play-offs, or as many as possible.

IDEXAN, I would tend to agree with your synopsis. What I posted immediately after it happened.

From where he grabbed, he evidently has suffered an adductor muscle tear. As much acute pain that he demonstrated, it will not be a minor 1st degree tear. It is either a 2nd degree tear or 3rd degree complete rupture. I would be surprised if this is not at least a 4+ week recovery. In one study, as high as 40 % of players with this more severe degree of injury have not been able to see the field by the 20th week. We will know more after an MRI.

I would still stand by this. If the Texans are being straight, it sounds like he has suffered a significant 2nd degree tear. With a supposed 3rd degree tear that you know that surgery will lead to IR ruled out, you are still left with the concern of trying to push too hard too quickly, a notorious reason specifically in the case of this type of injury for recovery being set back (even greater than hamstring injuries)......a reason why many of the 40% couldn't get back on the field by the 20th week.

First of all, I don't believe the Texans have said anything official. All of the information I've seen is from the infamous "person with knowledge of the situation".

We'll see what they do with his roster spot. If he's truly out for the year, and they know it, they can't afford not to IR him and free up a spot. I think if they put him on IR with the right to return, he could come back for the Super Bowl (if my math is right). On one hand, that's kind of assuming you're gonna get to the Super Bowl - on the other hand, this would be the last week they could designate someone to return, so if they don't use it, it just goes away.

Bottom line if what you say is true (and I'm not as skeptical as you are), there's no way they will let him stay on the 53 man roster and simply take up a spot.

Nothing I said is true. I was being sarcastic and speaking with a lot of distrust. I have learned not to believe anything the Texans say regarding injuries over the years then my recent experience regarding the Cody injury just solidified that to the max.

They're liars and I think like it. Not too sure though.

Well, if you've got a zillion guys claiming every possible outcome to every possible thing, they're bound to hit occasionally. The Bleacher Report is mostly just people giving their opinions and they have no more and no less importance than anyone else's opinions.

It doesn't hurt my iddy biddy feelings that they got this one right but there's no way I was going to take something from the Bleacher Report as accurate until there was another, more trustworthy, source.

From watching games video of Merci this season I actually thinks he will have a bigger impact on rushing the QB than Reed and Barwin. He doesn't run himself out the pocket like those two. He likes to take the shortest route to the QB with bullrush and rips. And if they step up in the pocket to ovoid an outside rush, Merci will be in a good position get a sack.

What I worry most from him is his inexperience in coverage and his run recognition and edge control. That run in the Jax OT nearly cost us the game because he failed to seal the left side edge.

Looks like drafting Merci was a great decision.

It was the only decision.

They weren't going to sign Mario. Brooks had an exceptional, yet spotty rookie season. Sophomore slump was a major concern. Barwin had one good year, again it was spotty. Many questioned his ability to repeat.

Jj Watt, again the sophomore slump was looming. I think him repeating his rookie season was the most unlikely.

We had too many "maybe they can repeat" situations going on to not put another egg in the basket.

Yes, I was wrong about Watt being able to repeat, heck he's far exceeded his 2011 production. Dude's amazing. But the point is, Barwin & Reed have not repeated, or even come close to their 2011 production. 2 out of three of our DL production disappeared.

Drafting Merci, in the first round, as an impact player, was a no brainer, had to be done.

You are correct, sir. McGahee, following the tearing of his "knee ligament" was "designated" on November 21st and will be eligible to play in any games after Jan. 16, which leaves only the AFC Championship Game and Super Bowl on the NFL schedule.
