Default "Green healthy for second season in Houston" - Yahoo Sports

From yahoo sports : "Ahman Green was supposed to be the answer to Houston’s rushing woes when he joined the team last season.

Instead the former Green Bay back was limited to 70 carries for 260 yards as he dealt with a nagging knee problem.

The Texans signed free agent Chris Brown this offseason, but plan to rely on Green as the starter. Green, 31, says he’s past his injury and ready to play, but questions remain about his health.

“He looks good. He’s had a good offseason,” coach Gary Kubiak said. “I want to knock on something every time I say that. He’s been a good worker in the program. He hasn’t missed a day.”

The injury was first listed as a bone bruise and soon led to knee swelling. Numerous tests didn’t uncover any other injuries but the injury caused him to miss all or part of 10 games." http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

Hate to be a pessimist about this, but I'm not counting on Ahman Green. He's on the wrong side of 30 and he's got a recent history of being injury-prone.

It would be great if he got over 1,000 yards this seaon, but who here thinks that's going to happen?

I'm betting he gets another 300-400 yards, tops.

Every single off-season article about Ahman Green over his entire career talks about how good he looks. He really does take care of his body and is an exercise nut.

Doesn't say squat whether the inside will hold up though.

Good luck to him. I saw enough flashes of good things last season, even with him dragging leg, that it would be fun to see a healthy Green. He showed some good vision in games.

The 'bone bruise' monster is sleeping, just waiting for another knock on the door. I expect a reprise.

I would say it was the definition of explosive. He'd get a tiny little crease and he could explode onto the second level. I'll never forget that run where he lowered his shoulder after exploding through the line and just destroyed the safety or LB and ran for another 20 yards. Of course it was week one against KC but if healthy I think he can really be great.

I hate to say it, because I not the glass half-empty type, but yeah man...
Ahman Green is damaged goods.

There's nothing more to say. He came, promised, and failed to deliver. Until he proves he can still be a productive back, he is going to be damaged goods.

Well I'm pretty sure he's going to have every opportunity to try to prove he's worth the pickup as it doesn't sound like he's dealing with any injuries in OTA's or minicamp. Just some food poisoning.

I waiver on Green because he was so absent last season, but he showed what a real running back can do in Kubiak's system with the one game he had that he was healthy ( I consider him healthy for that KC game. He said he hurt his knee in the AZ preseason game, but, he took most of the carries vs KC and did just fine).

I'm prepared for Green to fail miserably, and I think the Texans are too, but I won't write him off all the way yet. He is getting there though.
