Default Spencer according to Megan Manfull

In this mornings Chronicle:

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...t/4440416.html



Texans rookie Charles Spencer has a metal plate and about eight screws in his knee. The fracture that ended his season after just two starts has healed.

That doesn't mean the Texans will have their starting left offensive tackle back any time soon, though. In fact, what appeared to be a bright NFL future for Spencer is now in question because of cartilage around his knee that was damaged as a result of the injury.
"It's certainly an injury that threatens a guy's career, especially a guy like Spencer," said Dr. Walter Lowe, the team physician who performed Spencer's surgery Sept. 18.

Hmm...I was under the impressing it was the initial leg break that would jepordize his career...this is the first I've heard about knee cartillage. This doesn't sound good. That is the stuff that DW is missing.

All the more reason to make a serious effort to acquire some top shelf talent at LT in the offseason.

Unfortunately this year draft is very thin at tackle position and out side of Thomas no one is considered franchise LT in this draft. Both Baker and Long are staying in college for senior year.

"This was a big disappointment," Spencer said. "It was kind of a weird fracture. But it happened for a reason. I'll be out there next year."
Great attitude by Charles......this guy is a winner!

I'm sure counting on Charles, and I hope he's there ready to go full speed. Because if he is, we're going to be better," Kubiak said. "But we've got to operate assuming that may not happen."
Great motivation for Charles.....this guy is a winner too!

What in the world is the "team physician" doing performing this type of surgery? If the injury is as bad as is being reported it should have been done by some uber doc, not the team doctor. Team docs are good for cortizone shots and tapin' ankles.

I hope this is just an honest mistake by Manfull.

Good only for cortizone shots and taping ankles? Maybe you oughta check out Dr. Lowe's credentials first before making such an ignorant statement about him the next time there, slick.

I better see that man out there next season. I want a good offensive lineman protecting our next QB whoever it is.

I wouldn't really listen to atheltes on wheter they would be out there next year. Just look at Jeff Bagwell last offseason, or Domanick Williams(Davis) this preseason. Good attitude, but sometimes the body won't allow you to do it.

The truth (whatever that is) appears to be that they don't know yet:

Quote:
It will take another month or so before the doctors can determine how the cartilage is doing.

We as fans are going to have to wait and see what happens with Spencer. The optimistic side of me says Spencer will be back at full strength, but optimism has led to disappointment with this team before. What a bummer.

Spencer does have a good attitude about it and is working very hard to be back, he appreciates the supporting fans and that helps his confidence. I know I can't ask but I wish all the "Doubters" could keep a cap on it because he does occassionally read this board. He's a bright kid and has a great future ahead of him and he totally believes in himself and his ability,,,,

Most doubters aren't basing much of their doubts on Spencer himself, just on the Texans LT position and the front office's inability to do the right things there. Spencer is one of the most highly regarded players on the team, especially in comparison to the playing time he's had.

First I hope Spencer is back to 100% when OTA's start we need him on this team BAAAAAD.

BUT:
Anybody else out there think we need to Trade-Up to get Thomas?

Up-Side: Spence comes back 100% and is good to go we have TWO big nasties to protect our QB(who ever it is) and plow the road for our RB's.
Our O-line would be set for YEARS to come. (Spencer, Thomas, Winston,Hodgens,Flanagan,Pitts,Mckinney)(I know I'm missing someone?not salamm)

Down-Side: Spence is not ready and may never be. Sucks, but we have to face facts that Knee/leg Injures can be a tricky thing.(REF: DD/DW) But we have Joe Thomas, a true LT to plug in. Will be paying big money but I refer you back to the Up-side listed above.

That said hope Spencer continues to keep up the hard work in Rehab and get well soon.

I was hoping you'd post after I read the article in the Chronicle because of your personal relationship with him, so thanks for that.

If Mr. Charles is reading, I want to extend my best wishes to him and hope he continues to work hard during his rehab. Everytime Coach Kubiak talks about Spencer, he always has great things to say about him as a player. It must give him a lot of encouragement that the team thinks so highly of him.

I hope we soon get that news that Spencer will be back in uniform and at full strength for the beginning of next season. GO BIG NASTY!!!
