Green missed 11 games in 05 , 2 games in 06 and 10 games in 07 . He had a major knee injury in 05 which I dont think he has ever fully recovered from (nor will he). His avg per carry pre injury was 5.65 ypc . His yards per carry post injury 3.81 ypc . At the time of his signing it was a gamble worth taking , at this point I think its shown in his play that he isnt the same player he was in GB . I hope he makes me eat these words but ..... I just dont see that happening .
Just my opinion , but if all they are going to get out of Green is 3.8 ypc they can get that out of one of the younger backs giving them some game time to develop (pending they can pick up the blitz) , its time to cut him and move on .

Im not insinuating he is hurt (that was vinny's post) ..... just that I think the Texans are better off giving carry's to one of the other backs .

Some of those injuries were just piss poor luck , broken bones and torn up knee's ..... some of the others I think could be preventable with a better conditioning program that stresses flexability (IE:hamstrings and the like) . I do believe that the Texans have lead the league in the number of players in IR the past two seasons (didnt look it up)..... that may be coincidence and it may not .

In a word "No" .... In todays NFL almost no team has the kind of depth across multiple positions to withstand 17 players on IR . Thats 32% of the roster ..... Part of winning in the NFL is staying healthy and part of staying healthy is blind luck .
