Default Re: Is Reggie going to play?

Just as an update since I mentioned it earlier, Jammal Brown didn't practice today nor has he practiced all week and is now listed as doubtful for the game. Second year man Zack Strief will start at LT of Brown indeed can't go. This is a virtual certainty in my opinion since I don't recall anyone who couldn't practice on Friday playing on Sunday during Payton's tenure here.

Good news for your Dline as Brown was getting back to last season's form before he hurt his calf last week. I have some amount of confidence in Strief in that I don't think he will be anything approaching a disaster - he's done admirably when called upon, especially for a 7th round pick - but I'm sure we won't be as likely to "leave him on an island" if you will and will have to adjust blocking schemes in order to compensate. Takes away some offensive flexibility if nothing else.

I'm sorry that Brown is hurt, but that could potentially be great news for the Texans.

The loss of Brown definitly hurts y'all more then the loss of Green hurts us.

I agree actually. Brown is a bit streaky as an offensive lineman it seems, but when he's playing well, he's easily one of the best in the game. Not having him limits us no doubt.

Here's some thought.

Reggie is going to play because there is nothing on the injury report that says otherwise. But that being said...

He reportedly got a concussion against the Rams.

The Rams had at the time the 25th rated run defense. Reggie didn't do so good at running that week. He got 7 carries for 17 yards.

He didn't practice much that week because of what he described as a "knee bone bruise." He said it didn't hurt that much at the time he banged it, but it hurt later that night. He said that there wasn't any swelling though. No team official mentioned the "bone bruise" that was Reggie's description.

So, Bush is coming to play the Texans coming off a ragging performance after not practicing with a knee bruise, and then suffered a concussion from a helmet to helmet hit in the Rams game that knocked him out of game temporarily. He was described as being woozy after that game.

When he was asked this week why he hadn't had a break out performance this year he responded:

"I'd rather skip that question," Bush said. "I don't want to answer that question."

Of course, after not having a break out game this season, suffering a knee bone bruise and a mild concussion, that probably means that he will have a killer game against the Texans defense. I will be really interested to see what the defensive play calling looks like this week.

My prediction torch, torch, torch, uh er duh, maybe we should adjust something.

So you are calling Mario dumber than a horse? Well I am curious as to what you have seen at practice that they are teaching him? Before certain people who like to only blame Mario for all of our defensive line problems and leave out every other lineman (head scratcher there, I mean agenda) and there was nothing new in any scheme until last week and it was on three plays only. If the coaches can't seem to figure out how to change their play calling or change their schemes how in the hell do you expect them to teach anyone a pass rush move?

Reggie is too well known to have a huge game against the Texans. He will probably get hurt early and Pierre Thomas will rush for 200 yards

True. Are we going to have to worry about Billy Miller having a huge game because he wasn't re-signed by the Texans?
