Default Glenn Earl injured

Quote:
The Texans showed they have a lot more to worry about than a preseason loss, starting with the loss of strong safety Glenn Earl. He suffered a foot injury that probably will require surgery and should cost him the first several games of regular season at the least.

"It doesn't look good, but we'll know more Sunday," coach Gary Kubiak said.

This might not be a necessarily horrendous thing. Guess who's probably going to slide over to SS now.......

The guy everybody wanted to be SS. CC Brown.

The Texans are now forced to find a more ball hawking FS, because thats basically the only types they have on the roster.

Unless they plan to leave CC at FS and try Harrison or Simmons at SS. I personally would like to see CC move over and get a real FS, because CC bites on way to many PA passes, he even did that tonight, but the guy has great range for a SS.

I'd like to see CC Brown move to SS and try Von Hutchins at FS. He made some nice plays today including one interception.

You beat me to it......Von Hutchins has looked like a FS machine throughout TC.

Agreed! Plus he's an Ole Miss guy and you can never have enough Rebels!

Could be a blessing in disguise. I like how Earl has performed during camp but Hutchins has played well in TC and obviously tonight with the pick so he or Harrison could emerge...it will be interesting.

Sorry about Earl's injury but pretty excited about a possible move of C.C. Brown to SS (where he belongs) and Von Hutchins and Harrison battling it out for the starting FS position.

So does CC, which is the reason why everybody including the Texans know they have two SS's out on the field. CC has caused more FFs than Earl while playing the FS spot...... CC Brown is a firecracker that is exposed at FS.

I'd sure like to see somebody take that FS spot from him. Von Hutchins, or whoever.

hate to say it but I don't think we lose much....Benson trucked Earl early....Benson sure looked good. I think we lose nothing with CC starting at SS. We just need to solidify the FS.

I could see a three man rotation at safety, with Simmons at SS on run downs, with Brown moving to SS on passing downs and Hutchins coming in at FS. Maybe Harrison works into the mix at some point in the season.

Without Earl, the Texans are more vulnerable versus the run. The Texans face a lot of good running teams this season. Losing Earl could become an issue if Simmons can't hold up.

I don't know where this thought comes from but Earl isn't that good....

C.C. is a much better SS than him...

Earl is a sell out ball player, but he's not that quick, not overly athletic....

If C.C gets a chance to play SS we will see a noticeable difference in run support at that position....

Even playing FS last year he had more tackles than Earl...When C.C was a rookie he played really well for us at the SS position...He even led the team in tackles for a good portion of the season...

I agree.

You know when you're a good talent evaluator, when you can judge a player's ability off of a single play.
