How hard is it to not click on a link?

There are tons of threads on here and you come into the one that you find ludicrous when it is clearly labeled as a draft grade thread?

And how is this different from giving your opinion on anything else that you don't know the outcome of? It's just a prediction.

Harris also has a history with injury that might recur (if I remember correctly.)

If both Williams and Quessenberry can stand upright, one of them might see some work at LT.
There's also Brandon Brooks who the Texans said they might try out at OT.

I don't think anything is written in stone yet.
Quote:
Offensive tackle Brennan Williams' father, Brent Williams, had an 11-year career with New England, Seattle and the New York Jets. Williams was asked the significance of following in his father's footsteps. "It was extremely important," he said. "It was an expectation that we always had to make it to this level. I'm truly blessed to be where I am today, but now it's time for me to carve out my own footsteps."

The Texans drafted Williams to compete on the right side with Derek Newton, last year's starter who's coming off surgery to repair a patellar tendon in his knee. "If he comes out and wins the position outright, great," offensive line coach John Benton said. "If not, he's got to learn to play left (tackle), too. That's how it works."

Williams needs to get out of the tub. Missing important time.

If he doesn't play in minicamp, he likely has suffered a meniscus tear that they are trying to treat nonsurgically.

So is there much of a chance this injury could end up being serious enough to
be season-ending for Williams ?

If it's truly a "minor" outer ring meniscus tear, 6-8 weeks of aggressive rehab without allowing exposure to re-injury or injury extension should result in return to play thereafter. Of course, if this is the case, he will still have fallen behind in his position development, having missed a good part of OTAs and minicamp.

If it is simply a "minor" collateral ligament sprain, he should be back for minicamp.

I'm sure there's a chance. Especially if the Texans aren't smart about his treatment & rehab.

However, right now we don't know the extent of his injury. CnD is stating that if Brennan isn't participating in minicamp, that would be another clue to Williams' injury.

So this is inaccurate?

Williams, who will compete for the Texans' starting right tackle job this season, left the morning rookie mini-camp practice early with a knee injury. He had an MRI that revealed no major damage and will resume football activities next week.

"No major damage" (or as has been referred to previously "injury which will not require surgery")doesn't rule out lesser damage. Note that the date of the above report was May 11........over 2 weeks ago.

There are no reports of his participation in last week's OTAs that I am aware of.

did not see any mention of him being out and just assumed he was ok or being given a bit more time to heal.

Ok thanks to you and playoffs. Last comments I saw by Kubiak mentioned some injured players but not Williams. Hopefully he is doing well.

RT Williams thinks he'll miss rest of spring

I bet Kubiak, Smith, & Dennison had a grade on Duane Brown before he did jack in the NFL.

I bet they had a grade on Brennan Williams as well. Just Like Brown's I bet that grade changes as time goes on.

Look, it's a prediction based on how a person feels about a prospect.






But thanks for pointing out that sometimes the predictions are wrong.

I'm sure we'll all keep that enlightening information in mind as we move forward in our evaluations and daily life as this revelation is absolutely shocking and new to me.





Signed,

The human race
