Default Posey getting Healthy!

Don't know how true this is, but: http://espn.go.com/blog/afcsouth/pos...lose-to-return

Quote:
Kubiak said after practice Wednesday that Posey is very close to coming off the physically unable to perform list. In fact, it could happen next week.

That's the report coming in. I've heard it through several sources although I think it was a bunch of different people reporting based on the same thing.

I personally expected him to be PUPed until 6 weeks in. If he comes back and he can pick up where he left off, that changes that WR group up.

Tweets re: Posey from training camp today... pretty cool.

Posey did a lot of research on guys who returned from Achilles injuries in the past. Went back and watched Ravens film of Suggs. #Texans

Posey told Kubiak after his Achilles tear he'd be ready week 1. He was in a wheelchair & Kubiak looked at him like he was crazy. #Texa

Posey talked a lot about how he changed his diet while rehabbing. How certain foods affect the soft tissues of the body. #texans

Posey said his doctor is ok with him coming back for San Diego. #texans

Asked about being ready for San Diego,"oh yeah". #texans

Posey said this has been a life changing experience. Added that he hasn't taken a day off since surgery. #texans

Kubiak said Posey told him after his surgery that "Don't count him out" #texans

Kubiak said Posey is close to being lifted off the pup list as soon as after Saturdays game. #texans

Ultimately, both Kubiak & Devier Posey think the WR could play in a #Texans preseason game.

Also fwiw, #Texans WR Devier Posey said he's close to being able to dunk a basketball.

WR Devier Posey said he feels "close" to coming back from achilles injury and just needs to get his conditioning up.

If this happens its a battle between Bonner and Jean for that last spot. That's assuming we only take 5.

Great news and Posey deserves big-time congrats for making a phenomenally rapid and apparently successful recovery !
Whatever reservations some of us may have had about Posey in the "character" department should now be forgotten considering the effort and determination and sacrifices this young man has made to accomplish this comeback.

What? That's terrible news!

Signed,

Lestar Jean, Alec Lemon, and Alan Bonner

On a serious note, where he says this is a life changing event - I take that to mean in a positive sense. Wouldn't it be something to take something like this and use it as the fuel to make yourself reach your maximum ability? I think they need to take it slow, and just slowly work him back in over the first month. I'd hate to force things and end up re-injured or having a setback.

I was on the Posey bandwagon from day one .... Had him in my mock , right where the Texans took him.

Saw some pre draft drills with he and some other receivers & he by far had the best hands of the group ....


Really glad to see he's getting healthy ... Can only see them keeping 5 WR's this season , Jean & Bonner will be in a fight for that last spot.

If Bonner doesn't get healthy in a hurry, he has almost no chance. Maybe PS yes, but he needs a bare min of 2 games under his belt or there is no way Kubes will keep him on the active roster.

Don't completely rule out Lemon either if Bonner is an injury scratch.

Yeah , I like Lemon .... he just seems to find a way to get open and doesn't use his helmet to catch the ball.

What was interesting about this was nobody was expecting to hear this today. Somebody threw out a Posey question, and we thought we'd get the standard on track sort of comment, and then he talks about Posey coming back after the game if he keeps progressing.

I was referring to Lestar Jean getting hit in the facemask by a pass from Case Keenum against the Vikes ... He didn't bother to use his hands.

I was thinking the same thing. I sure hope Kubiak isn't pushing Posey to get back sooner than he should, I'd much rather we PUP Posey and then bring him back mid-season.

I kind of feel the same way, but if the team doctors feel like he's good to go then I'm on board with it. Kubiak is known to be shaky about the extent of injuries, but other than a few examples like Arian a couple of years ago I haven't known them to rush guys back before they were really healthy. Honestly I think the Arian situation was more of him just insisting on coming back sooner than he needed to and he ended up re-injuring himself in the 49er Preseason game. I think Kubiak has learned his lesson since then.

Default Re: Posey getting Healthy!

While I'm not trying to suggest Posey will eventually become a 90+ catches/1.4K yards/10 tds WR, his recovery timeframe isn't any difference than what Demaryius Thomas had back in 2011.

Thomas was injured sometime early in Feb. working out, was expected to miss the whole season with the Achilles tear, but was actually removed from the PUP list prior to the first game. He ended up breaking his pinkie during that first practice and missed the next 5 games so it is hard to tell how ready he truly was, but at the same time Posey's injury was earlier than Thomas's, so he's had slightly longer to recover.

Definitely is bad news for LeStar, Bonner, and Lemon though. In my mind pretty much cements that only one of those 3 will find a spot on the roster, so unless Lemon goes to PS and Bonner is IR-stashed, I think after the preseason is over LeStar will no longer be a Texan.
