I really don't think it has anything to do with Texans doctors specifically. It's the culture of the NFL - if you can walk, you can play. I've heard someone on the radio contrast NFL and MLB in that respect. If a pitcher "feels" something iffy with his elbow, he's done, off to the doctors, better safe than sorry. If a QB tears up his knee (RGIII, P.Rivers a few years back), they slap a knee brace on him and send him back out.
