Default On the health of our Texans players:

OT Charles Spencer was out of the training room and on the practice field today:
Quote:
(on what T Charles Spencer did) “He did everything that doesn’t pertain to where he may end up getting tangled up with somebody. So he’s making great progress. We’ll see how he comes out of it this weekend. Hopefully everything’s OK.

(on what it means to T Charles Spencer to be back on the field) “Well, first off, he’s very excited, you know. He’s as upbeat as I’ve seen him in the last year and a half, and I think he looks really good, too. He’s got his body weight down. He’s part of the team again, so to speak. He’s out of the training room, so, you know, it’ll just be interesting to see how he holds up. You know, hopefully we walk out of here this weekend and we say, ‘Gollee, everything went fine. The knee didn’t swell,’ then we move on to the next step. So we’ll see.”
Matt Schaub is looking 100% again:
Quote:
[(on QB Matt Schaub) “He looked good, you know. We were just talking about him. He hasn’t been around noise or around piles or around contact, that type of stuff, but he looked very comfortable and just make sure I keep people away from him, you know, but I thought he threw the ball really well.
Fred Weary appears to be poised to make a full comeback
Quote:
(on his approach with G Fred Weary) “Well, we’ve got to get Fred totally healthy right now. That’s the key, and he’s very close, you know. We’re hoping that maybe, definitely training camp is what we’re looking for, but we feel good about the idea that he will be 100 percent very quickly or, of course, we probably wouldn’t have done it. But we’re expecting him to be back.”

(on G Fred Weary coming along so well) “Well, it was a clean break, so they felt like he had a very good chance at coming back quickly, but Fred’s an awful hard worker, too, so that’s added to it.”

Sounds like guys are working hard to get back as fast as possible. An update on Dunta will be nice.

PS: Please NO ONE post a thread saying "Wow, we sure seem to be healthy this preseason" because thats what started the onslaught last year

On 610, Matt and Rich were both at the workout this morning, and Matt said Spencer is still running with noticeable limp. If it wasn't Friday, that would ruin my day.

The fact that there are three fine girls about to pick me up is about to brighten my Friday.

I think they said he's probably going to have a noticeable limp for the rest of his life. They were also talking about how he's probably going to slide inside and hopefully can use more brains + knowledge of the game (of which he has none) to work the line rather than brute force and athleticism.

Is there anyway you can back that statement up or are you just assuming Charles Spencer is dumb? I have never read anything nor heard that Spencer doesn't have a knowledge of the game.

He doesn't really have any knowledge on the pro-game because he's only played in 2 games his whole career. You can't assume that a guy like that, who has had to sit out for a few years is going to have a plethora of knowledge on how to play a demanding spot like offensive lineman. It's just not going to happen.

You can only gain experience by playing the game, not by being injured. This is what I implied by my statement.

You still gain knowledge of the game by being on the sidelines. Maybe not as much, but you still do. Ask Schaub.
