Default Bennie Joppru

Any update on his status? Shouldn't we know more after Week 6?

Yup, this is important to the Texans because he was our 2nd round pick last year. As we all know, our O is progressing along very well - one thing missing is a TE who can be a descent blocker but also possession type receiver for us over the middle - that's Bennie. That's why we invested our very valuable 2nd round pick in him last year. This whole thing with him is a real mystery and really lacking for a full and complete disclosure/explanation. Believe me, I get no pleasure in saying this, but I'm thinking that there will be some litigation re. this situation. I hope not, I hope I'm wrong. Most of all, I just hope it gets back with the team this season after PUP and is able to begin his NFL career in earnest.

Too many damn lawyers.

We have a few frequent posters who are lawyers. They can't all be bad.

I'm not sure I understand why there would be litigation though. Can you elaborate Nun?

One of the writers at hpf have said that the word around the Texans is that Joppru will be active at some point this season.

No, I do not have any specific knowledge about Joppru's injury situation and
litigation. But besides being deeply frustrated as I'm sure he must be, I have
a hunch that he will also be somewhat disgruntled if he can't play this year,
and I don't think he is going to be activated after PUP and given the opportunity to play. And if he can't play (for the second year in a row), I
think he will be pointing a finger at some people for what's happened to him
since we drafted him.

Well, I'm not sure you can point a finger at anyone for tearing your groin.

I hear that he is coming back but I won't hold my breath. If he plays he plays. I'm pulling for the guy. I'm sure he is bummed about the whole thing but I doubt he blames the Texans.

I believe we already have a decent blocker and possession type receiver his name is MURPHY. No knock to Joppru...Miller, or Bruener.

A poster at KFFL who is supposedly Joppru's brother, posted a while back that he would likely be back on October 18th. Take it with the proverbial grain of salt of course. I sure would like to get a look at what he can do for our offense. If he can't go this season we may be forced to look at a TE on day one of the draft. Heath Miller, anybody?

Heath Miller is a first round pick. We need to invest it on a defensive player IMO.

until i see him on the field though i can't assess that. They should get him into games before Joppru comes back so we know what we have in him.

You are right, they need involve him more in the offense not just use him on special teams.

Hey, that's great news. And thanks for the update 3rd-Coast. Great news for Bennie and for our offensive: if we can get a ligit NFL type TE (one who can
block and catch the ball), it's one step closer to having a real formidible O -
we got a pretty good start on that already.

Yep I heard Casserly this morning too. Apparently Joppru has been running but cannot practice with the team until after week 6 (after this Titans game). They have until week 10 to make him active or he goes on the IR.

Definately good news. Hopefully we'll get to see him on the field some before season's end. Good Luck Bennie.

Its almost the time when teams decide to shift players from the Pup'ed list to either the roster or the IR. So was just wondering, what's the word on Joppru?

He can start practicing immediately. I'm sure we will read an article on him in the next week or two.
