It reminds me of a name-shifting ball-toter we had a year ago. I, for one, am worried regardless of what the doctors or players say.

I didn't mean to imply that this was like Domanick Davis/Williams. I was just idly wondering if he was feeling any better and was interested in a game check or two. Then of course I laughed and shook my head at my own folly for thinking such a thing.

I wonder what RB's are out there right now. At one point there were a few guys looking for teams and waiting for phone calls. The Texans might be doing some shopping if things don't go as intended.

I think you are all jumping the gun. Green's swelling was due to contact not activity.

I was pretty critical of the Green signing, and this is why.

The Texans took the chance and it doesn't look like it is going to work out.

This next offseason, they are going to have to do something about the RB position and defensive secondary without using bandaids.

Those two positions have to be improved for this team to really compete in the AFC.

Of course they'll be addressed in the off-season. We have fewer holes and a lot of cap room this year. Last year, we couldn't afford to do much- especially after spending money and picks to get a QB.

Yep. The good news is that those two positions look really deep for next year's draft.

Think the Chargers will trade LT? I mean he looks over the hill. If not, then LJ from the Chiefs?

No way once a rb gets a bad knee like this it is basically over they should retire . Green is only going to hurt the team by hanging on only to bow out after three hand offs .

This is real good to hear . If Green would have been out for an extended amount of time , that would have really hurt us . I just hope this isn't a reoccurring thing with him .

This is what we know:

Green has a history with Green Bay of being nicked up, day-to-day kinda of thing. And has performed well even with that sort of stuff going on. Sherman knows that history.

Running backs over 30 sometimes succeed, but often times not so much.

With DD, the team seemed to make plans assuming that he was coming back and were in a bad situation when he wasn't. The team said they learned from that.

Publicly they are supporting both Dayne and Gado. Publicly they supported their young players last year, until they didn't.

Ron Dayne looked good at the end of last season. He also managed to injure himself during warmups before the Browns game.

Kubiak said Gado was rusty, that he can play better, and that the play calling didn't give him enough chances to get into the flow of things.

The Texans looked horrible last year when they relied on inexperienced running backs in their scheme last year. At some point, they decided that they had to go to plan B and got two guys who hadn't been in camp.

The Boselli Rule: You can't take what the Texans say about injuries at face value. That you get as much information about the injury that you can, and make your own assessment if you want a realistic estimate.

So what does this tell us:

The Texans aren't afraid of Plan Bs.

But they also may not learned that you can't assume players will be back, that you have to plan as though they will not be.

I guess it really has that only a flesh wound feel of it.

What i feel confident with is how the Texans held their own against the Colts and even with all our own turnovers and injuries...Hopefully they learned from them and Atlanta will be easier then Indy, so i'd rather we rest out hurt guys and see if the others can step up again.

Why?

His first year was 1997 and he's played in 150 games. Ahman Green entered the league in 1998 and he's played in 129 games. Sure Dillon has more miles but he's consistently produced. IF for any reason we lost Green for the year I'd consider signing a Corey Dillon or a Stephen Davis (1996 and 143 games) to a one year "Merc" deal to fill the hole. It's either that or bring up Walker (not opposed to that either if they think he can do it) or sign some other "never was".

At this point it's either a "has been", "never was", or "wanna be". There aren't any quality unemployed backs just sitting around wishing they could carry the ball for someone.

I'd work him out tomorrow if I thought Dayne Couldn't go next week. Of course they do think Dayne can go next week so it's a moot point.

Good lord talk about over generalizing. Not all knee injuries are the same. Unless they are flat out lying--the MRI showed nothing structural and Kubiak said it is a nagging bruise from the KC game. Should AJ retire too?

It may not be that bad. He may be alright come Sunday or one week from Sunday. I'm just saying that it doesn't sound all that great - especially considering his age.

I'm over 30 as well and I can tell you that the nicks don't heal that fast. 8-10 weeks in the gym these days is often cut to 5-7 weeks because the strains, pulls, etc. just don't heal as fast. So even with a tremendous athlete like Ahman it's hard to feel confident about injuries (especially soft tissue ones) because stuff just doesn't heal that fast anymore once you get past about 25.

He may be fine. I pray he is because I dig Ahman and loved him when he was working for Favre in GB and I still like the signing. This is a two back league, though, and our number two and three hardly strike fear into the hearts of anyone.

Finally, I think that with all of the injuries we may be seeing the fans lagging one year behind the team. Last year, if things went to sh*t on the field, you could see the team's collective heads and shoulders start to sag. This year, they don't panic and "keep chopping wood." On the other hand, I think that perhaps the fan base still has some of that "Here we go again" in them. Myself included.

I do trust Kubiak and Rick to do the right thing (they've rarely missed so far) so I guess I should just chill out, shut up, and wait to bust out the rally chickens for Atlanta.
