Sometimes we make this too complicated. I think new WR will be running basic routes and being decoy. He does have some experience so terminology will be the key.

I think AJ & JJ will be out this game only to answer another poster.

It can also reflect a stress fracture. Even though an x-ray has been said to show no fracture, such fractures may not show on x-ray for 10 days, and therefore, confirmatory x-rays should be repeated then to entirely rule out this possibility.

Bone bruises are not really bruises of the bone, but actually inflammation of the layer covering the bone (periosteum). Bone bruises of any sort can be exquisitely tender/painful and can last for prolonged periods of time. They certainly in many cases can affect performance.

We'll just have to see what's really going on with JJ. Time will tell.
I had one in Marine boot camp and it was very painful. What most don't think about is by trying to walk and avoid pain to injured area, I stressed the other foot. Rest is about the only thing I was told to do and in boot camp? Yeah, right.

That is an excellent point. Compensation for injured/painful lower limbs will commonly cause problems with the opposite limb.......sometimes even greater problems than for the original injury.

I don't know that it is number of injuries so much as it is severity of them. Us Texans fans know that first hand (Harry Williams, Cedric Killings).

The game seems watered down without kickoffs cause face it with this rule seems like the KOs have been cut out 90% of the time I heard a couple teams were kicking off short in order to practice coverage cant evailuate special teams coverage without returns. If this stays ib the Texans will be one of the teams that greatly benifits because defense will have better field position and last year the Texans had the most 80 yard scoring drives of any team in the league.

Default Re: Texans sign a RB&WR

There are two basic changes.

1) They're kicking off from the 35 which means almost every kicker can get a touchback and anyone returning will usually have to start from deep in the endzone.

2) The line has to start from 5 lines behind the ball instead of 10. So that slows down the coverage team.

Most returners are going to be taking knees because it's going to be damned hard to even make it back out to the twenty. The kick teams might start going to a strategy of high kicks with long hangtimes to try to pin teams back. So it changes from kickers putting it out the back of hte endzone to kickers putting it right about the 5 with a high, high kick so that the coverage team has the guy surrounded when he catches the ball.

It's going to be interesting to see the strategy.

Like someone else said, it's about the severity. It's why the wedge was outlawed last year. Guys running downfield full blast and sacrificing their bodies to take blockers down and the number of full blast helmet to helmet contacts caused an inordinate number of spinal injuries on kickoffs.

That and I heard them say during the chiefs broadcast that the injuries were proportionally skewed towards more injuries on kick-off.
