Take it with a HUGE grain of salt but someone told me that there will be a reunion between Matt Turk and the Texans.

Don't shoot the messenger.

So who is this "guy"? Is he someone on twitter? Is he related to you? Are you friends with him?

Some guy I started following on Twitter 2 seasons ago. He usually is right 8 times out 10.

Pretty legit too, runs a independant blog site.

Oh cool, can you copy and paste the info from his feed? You know, source the info and let the guy get some credit? Cause if someone's making good calls, has good info, etc, the only way they get more followers is to quote them. Do the guy a favor and spread the word for him. If he's BS, we will find out.

Matt Turk has a groupie. I met her at training camp in 2010. She follows the guy all over the country... It's pretty spooky to speak with a 30 year old woman who knows every factoid aout a punter. So, at least one fan is thrilled with this possible news.

Congratulations creepy but pleasant lady from training camp 2010

Punch?

I'd straight go Tonya Harding on Turk if that meant he stays away from us.

Seriously, the guy was good for one thing: His huge 4th down run that came off a busted snap from Jon Weeks. Otherwise, what did he do here that would gain him a second chance?

YIKES. I hope this rumor is one of those two times out of ten that the source is wrong.

Billy "White Shoes" Johnson could be an upgrade at KR/WR over Keshawn.

Our pass rush needs some help also. Robert Brazile's probably not up to much these days.

Think there's a better chance that Billy Bob from Varsity Blues comes in to be our punter.

I say bring the whole crew too..... Mox, Tweeter, Wendell (who's mom did his own recruiting by the way). We'll have our QB, #2 receiver, backup running back, right tackle, and punter situation all covered.

The Texans are going after the wrong Ed. Instead of Ed Reed, the Texans should sign Ed "Too Tall" Jones!!

The way players have gotten bigger over the years he'd be Ed "Too Small" Jones today.

Matt Stevens?

I can see the NFL draft ticker now: Houston Texans lose Quin, Barwin, Casey, Ball, Forsett, add Matt Turk, Gardener, and Supernaw.

Best off-season ever!

From Ian Rapoport:

#Texans have lost a few free agents... But sounds like they are interested in re-signing punter Donnie Jones. 47.2 avg in 2012.

You remember this device that was just recently widely publicized?

Wheelchair users walk this way with ReWalk 2.0
January 23, 2013 12:26 PM
Ciara Byrne

A man in a wheelchair stands up and takes his first step in many years. Attached to his legs and waist is a robotic exoskeleton called the ReWalk which helps him to stand, sit, walk and even climb stairs. One person, Claire Lomas, even completed the London marathon in one. Argo Medical Technologies, which makes the ReWalk suit, just released a new version for use in rehabilitation centers in the U.S.

Over 100 people are already walking around Europe and Israel in a ReWalk Personal and, pending FDA approval, the suit will be available for personal use in the U.S. in the second half of 2013. ReWalk Rehabilitation is already helping patients in 16 rehabilitation centers across the United States.

Israeli electrical engineer Dr. Amit Goffer designed the ReWalk suit. He became a quadriplegic following an accident in 1997. Goffer devoted 10 years to developing a device that would help a paraplegic to walk again. Rest of the story and video (http://venturebeat.com/2013/01/23/rewalk-2-0/#C5UuJgup4wABqWTG.99)

The reason I brought this up is because since I've followed this device's development, I recognized that it was "our" Stevens that was one of a short list of only a dozen patients in the original clinical trials back in 2010. It was great to hear that something good was happening in his life.

Amazing. I saw that something like this was being developed for troops, but not for medical use. And I didn't know the technology had progressed this far.
