Default Earl & Faggins Getting Reps with 1st Team

ESPN.com

^Notes:@ The Texans held FB Moran Norris (shoulder), K Kris Brown (concussion) and RT Todd Wade (knee) out of practice Wednesday, but all were expected to be ready for Sunday's game at Detroit. ... SS Glenn Earl, who has spent the last season working back from a knee injury last year at Notre Dame, got in several first-team practice plays Wednesday.


Very interesting, wonder if it means anything

Wow...could be good, could be bad. I don't know how sure I would be with two rookies starting in the secondary.

I have never been a big Eric Brown fan. Whenever I hear his name I always think of him falling on his face as Graham catches a TD pass from Brady. If Glenn Earl is better, then play him.

I suspect that is what the team is looking at. It was pretty painfull watching Brown get burned and they KNOW other teams will see the same thing. If Earl can get the job done, they will use him. Having three rookies on "D" though is more than a bit worrisome.

ya but we are not trying to get to the playoffs this year. 3 rookies on D, after a whole year of starting and playing together next year they will be the leaders on the team. Why start a 31 year old who probably wont be around next year.

If it weren't for the knee injury, Glen Earl would have been the first safty drafted and not Tylor.

Basically, its' the teams way of staying prepared in case a player goes down. If Earl had not injured his knee, he would have been a pretty high draft selection for safety, thus the Texans taking a chance on an injured player. Don't look to deep into the practice reps, except for preparation for possible injuries, backup time, and grooming to take someones place in the future!
