First year coming off injury isn't normally considered fully healthy. I'm not understanding why everytime I post something it turns into an attack on grammar,analogy or incidentals. Strange.

So, uhhhh yeah Im looking forward to him having a big year with or without Watt.

I'm sure he does the standard footwork drills with all the rest of the qb's.

I seriously doubt Schaub is out there doing the latter or stepping through tires/ropes. There's better things he can do with his time.

But I could be wrong. Maybe he is doing those drills with the rb's or wr's for some reason.

He's clumsy as heck.

Normally I wouldn't want to see a QB doing such drills, but that's Schaub's biggest weakness, imo. Hell, I'd love to hear he joined a dodge ball league in the offseason.

Default Re: Training camp 2013

Last year, JJ sustained a complete dislocation, where all the elbow ligaments are disrupted. This is a very serious injury, leaving almost all players with combinations of limited range-of-motion, stiffness, pain and loss of strength and/or minor instability (from permanently stretched ligaments). As I posted when it happened, this injury is very prone to re-dislocation......even when considered "fully healed." I emphasized that re-dislocation a second time proves instability and no longer allows for consideration for conservative rehab as was done for the first.......it leads to the need for SURGICAL repair, which is a 6-12 month recovery........and that's why I strongly suggested last year in order to minimized the latter scenario, he would be smart to wear that splint for the remainder of his career.

Before the "soreness" was revealed:

Quote:
J.J. Watt says injured elbow never fully healed last season

Posted on April 3, 2013 at 8:27 pm by John Brannen

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is looking forward to what he hopes is an injury-free season of harassing opposing quarterbacks. (Karen Warren/Houston Chronicle)

Eighty-one total tackles, 20.5 sacks and 16 batted passes earned Texans defensive end J.J. Watt the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Year award.

According to Watt, he wasn’t playing at full capacity.

During the first week of practices in August, Watt dislocated his left elbow. He missed the majority of the preseason and wore a noticeable black arm brace during all 18 Texans’ games.

“In the beginning, it definitely affected me,” Watt said in an interview with SportsRadio 610. “All the ligaments in there were torn, they were all gone, so they had to have time to recover and regroup. So obviously, I wasn’t at full strength. The brace helped a lot, but it was more of a mental thing, getting over the thought process of knowing that it was injured and making sure that I could still have confidence in it. As the season went on, I got more and more confidence in it and obviously, it didn’t hinder me too much; I had some success out there. But (I’m) looking forward to a 100 percent full healthy season.”

For the record, I had no problem whatsoever with your take, and I think it's a good one. I'm looking for bigger and better things from Mr. Crick this year.

"This is the class of the AFC."-- Deion Sanders on the #Texans


Quote:
“It’s great for the DBs to be able to hear how to play the game from somebody like Deion,” cornerback Johnathan Joseph said. “I got a lot out of it, and I know the young guys did, too. He’s a member of the Hall of Fame, and it’s great that he took the time to talk to us.”

Kareem Jackson starts opposite Joseph.

“To get instructions from him is just unbelievable,” Jackson said.

Brice McCain is the nickel cornerback.

“He’s the greatest cornerback to play this game,” McCain said. “We’re blessed to be able to talk to him and ask him questions.”

Default Re: Training camp 2013

Playoffs and anyone else posting camp updates and tweets - mucho gracias my fellow Texans fans. I've been soaking these in every day. I know it's only one or two person's opinions, but it's all we have to go on if we can't make practice.

Interesting that Chris Jones is playing some DE. I wonder if it's just to see if he can do it (IE the more positions one knows the greater the chance of making it) or if this is an actual position switch from NT to end. Jones seems like a NT to me based on everything I have read and the little game action I've seen of him.

I'm starting to really love the talent and depth at both WR and secondary - and both have been notorious trouble spots in the past. Guys on both sides of the ball making plays, lots of competition etc. Steel hardens steel - both sides getting better. The same can be said of the trenches. Love it.

Getting concerning.

Kubiak says he's focusing on linebacker health issues. "Biggest concern is there's 15 of them and 7 are practicing." #Texans
