After last year, we are probably paranoid about any injuries that surface.
Hope the law of averages gives the Texans a break in 04..
After looking at news coming out just this week from around the league, it makes you wonder what is going on sometimes:
Jerry Azumah/Bears - out 3-4 months - herniated disc in neck
Marcel Shipp/Cardinals - out 8-12 wks - dislocated ankle
Peter Sirmon/Titans - out for season - ACL
David Boston/Dolphins - out for season - knee injury
Terrell Owens/Eagles - hip pointer in practice - sounds like he will be fine if his own defense doesn't smack him around too much!
Rattay/Niners - inflamed right forearm
Joe Jurevicius/Bucs - needs surgery to repair herniated disc in his back
Tony Gonzales/Chiefs - resigned to playing with pain all season - stress fracture to right foot
(At the present time, I'm up near Berea, Ohio where the Browns hold training camp. They had a scrimmage in Rochester, NY this weekend against the Bills.
And speaking of injuries, we all remember that backward knee bend that Willis McGahee took ... THAT IMAGE is hard to forget! Anyway, he is looking pretty darn sharp these days in Buffalo. Had a great day against the Brownies, but yes, it was the Browns... trying to morph into a power running team if Winslow should ever decide to join them!)
PS ... what news of the Texans that gets up here ... is GOOD news! They are respected and highly thought of ..
