The texans don't have many game changers on offense. Daniels being gone isn't gone change much because its not like defenses are losing sleep over daniels. Dude can't get seperation and doesn't break tackles. He's a 10 per catch schemed te. Dime a dozen.

I, too, don't think that this was such a good decision. But, he is one of the few "go to" receivers that Schaub seems to always migrate to. Makes me think that Kubiak expects to keep sticking with Schaub come Hell or high water.

FWIW, makes you wonder about all the info coming from the Texans.

RT @adamclanton: #Texans tight end @owendaniels on with us now on @SportsTalk790; he says he has NOT had 2 MRI's on his fibula...
And also instead of 4-6 weeks out, 610 Radio now reporting that the Texans say Daniels would be out 4-8 weeks (closer to the 6-8 weeks that I initially related is more reasonable).

Default Re: Owen Daniels Fibula Injury, Could Miss Time

610 guys were talking about how Daniel Manning returned after ~4 1/2 weeks following a fibula fracture, and there was no reason why OD couldn't. Manning was taken to surgery to place a metal plate at the fracture site. This type of tibial fracture with plate repair allows for fracture support/stabilization throughout the entire bone healing period, and the return is more dictated by the ability to play through pain. There is no report that OD will have his fracture plated (who knows, we may find out after the fact). But if it is not placed, and he is allowed to bear weight without hardware before the bone demonstrates adequate healing upon radiological imaging (~6 weeks) , the fibula is high risk for non-union and to re-break under stress, and probably displace then, thus causing significant surrounding muscular and tendinous damage in addition to the bone damage. And that would undoubtedly put him out for the season.

We have depth at TE, so we'll be fine missing OD for a few games. Make Schaub look somewhere else.....or now 100% of the passes will go to AJ.

The Texans took a short-term step to fill in at tight end, after their long-term answer there was lost for two months.

According to Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego, the Texans have signed tight end Jake Byrne off the Chargersí practice squad.

Byrne was on the Texans practice squad during the playoffs last year, after going to training camp with the Saints in 2012. He was cut by the Texans this preseason.

He takes the roster spot created when the Texans put tight end Owen Daniels on IR/designated for return because of a broken leg. Daniels will be out until Week 14, by which point it might not matter.
And we resign Byrne from the SD PS. Kubiak loves his Sconi TE's.

You're absolutely right. He's not as good as he was in his younger days. The separation just isn't there anymore. He still has good hands and it will hurt our red-zone offense though. 3 TDs in 5 games. But I'm confident our young tight ends like Garrett Graham and Ryan Griffin will step up and play well.

I remember before Owen Daniels' first major injury (ACL) in 2009 when he was a total beast who could take over a game, and that was highlighted with a sweet one-handed TD catch against the Bengals on the road. At that time you could argue he was a top 5 tight end in the game. But that's not the case anymore. People in my fantasy league barely had him valued in the top 15 entering the season.

If not for his season-ending injury in 2009 we probably would have made the playoffs that year. We were 5-3 at the time but struggled without him. This time around I just don't see his loss hurting us as much. We have the #1 ranked defense in the league, an excellent running game on offense with two of the better backs in the league, and an offensive line which is now getting healthy again.

This still comes down to #8 Matt Schaub being able to play a lot better and making the right decisions. Ironically enough, I'd even argue that not having Owen Daniels is a good thing for Schaub moving forward this season. He was targeting Daniels way too much and forcing throws when Daniels wasn't even open. That was leading to numerous interceptions and some of those pick six's.

I'm more concerned with our incredibly poor special teams play, outside of Shane Lechler's amazing punting, than I am with losing Owen Daniels for 8 games. We are not getting any return game at all. It's time to replace Keshawn Martin. I've never seen a worse returner in my life. And Randy Bullock is still missing field goals.
