Re: UPDATE: Danieal Manning on IR
The 2013 season for Danieal Manning is over, as the Texans placed the veteran safety on injured reserve Tuesday because of a
tibial plateau fracture
. Head coach Gary Kubiak said the loss of the eighth-year defensive back hurts in more ways than one.
"I think D-Man played at a Pro Bowl level for us," Kubiak said Wednesday. "He’s a big leader on our football team. We’re going to miss him."
Manning was on crutches and said he'll have surgery this Friday. He said he's not in any physical pain, but can't put much weight on his right leg. Even though his season is over, he said it could've been much worse.
"I'm fortunate that it's just that," Manning said of the injury. "In the pictures you guys have seen, it looks bad. It could've been an ACL, a whole knee repair, but thank God it wasn't anything like that."
