Default Are the Texans using the weight room too much?

Seems like we have a lot of groin injuries again. I'm beginning to wonder if the team is stressing their musscles to much. Is the team streching enough? I see DD has a puffy knee. It looks like we are heading back to the same problems we had a year ago and I don't think many of us were happy with that situation. Some of you are more versed in this subject than I am, but it certainly seems like its becoming all too common. Yes, some injuries are expected, but we seem to get the no return kinds of injuries and the ones that take an awfully long time to heal. Our we bulking up too much and not lengthening the musscles? I know the trainer is suppose to be one of the best, but may be he's going too far with some of this.

It will take your body a while to adjust to a heightened level of activity. Even throwing the weights around won't fully prepare you for training camp. I'm sure these bugs (except Joppru) will iron themselves out as training camp and the preseason progress.

Injuries are common in the NFL. It's a tough, physical game played by guys with the craziest ratios of size/speed on the planet (for a team based game). You just happen to follow our team. Other teams have their share too, trust me on that. That is why it is important to be a deep team and the foundation of why expansion teams don't generally win in the NFL right off the bat.

Running back Chris Brown also sat out practice Thursday with a tight right hamstring. He pulled his left hamstring early in training camp last year, which limited him to 11 games. Fisher said he wasn't concerned.

"When players feel tight and can't get loose, we're going to back them down. We're trying to be smart about this, and hopefully he can get back on the practice field [Friday] afternoon," Fisher said.

V I posted this to get some response from some of you who know more than me on this, but its just that it seems like we have a lot of hamstring injuries. Even Glenn was having some problems again. I wondered if we were doing too many things with the legs to the point of causing deteriation rather than a bulid up of the legs. In some of the pictures it looks like they have been doing some very strenuous things to the legs. Is it possible we are just going to far in an effort to develope the best player.
