We will see about some of it soon, I guess, though I'm sure getting clear information from the Texans will be difficult.
That may be true. But it could be more of a function of the hit being taken off-center directly onto the fibula only (avoiding direct severe trauma to the tibia, which would more likely cause an ACL and/or PCL). He may have just lucked out.
