The radio promo I heard suggested it could be worse than this. McClain's blog implies something similar. Sometimes McClain can't say stuff yet, but foreshadows it in his blog.

I'd be fine if McClain had inside info that he could only hint at... because, he also said that the injury, while it could be quite serious, isn't career threatening.

Default Dunta News

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...s/5280150.html

Quote:
Texans cornerback Dunta Robinson did not undergo surgery Tuesday because agent Jason Chayut asked him to get a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews of Birmingham, Ala.

The Texans had no problem with Robinson, 25, getting a second opinion on the surgery, which will be rescheduled and performed within the next few days.
I'm actually really glad that Dunta is going to go and see Dr. Andrews; as he has a well deserved rep of being the doctor to get athletes back on the field as close to their original performance as medically possible.

Ahman Green is going to Birmingham as well, so take that for what it is worth.

I agree - I think it is a good move for both players to make that trip. Let's hope for some good news on both fronts...

Dr. Andrews is the godfather of sports medicine, if I was a major athlete with a serious and/or hard to diagnose injury I'd definitely take the flight to Birmingham too. Hopefully they both get hopeful news.

Whatever helps Dunta recover and get healthy, that comes first obviously. Next, I am really hoping his career can continue as it was.

Default Re: Dunta to get 2nd opinion

I can understand Duntas' desire to get a 2nd opinion and I hope everything goes well.

I have been wondering if the Texans have been doing something wrong with their conditioning or training process. How many teams have come close to leading the league with players on IR as many times as we have over such a short period of time. It can't be just the playing field because we are losing players like Dunta in away games also. I don't know how much a strength and conditioning coach can do to help prevent such injuries but we did keep the same strength and conditioning coach during the change over to coach Kubes didn't we? It seems like our medical staff isn't in any hurry to bring people back so I don't think we are ruching people back too soon all the time.

I agree to an extent, but I don't really think Dunta's injury falls under that category. Cochran is a pretty big guy to be falling on your leg, especially in awkward positions.

Well any time an agent is pushing for a second opinon...makes me wonder that the pilimanary news is not good. They're not going to know anything for sure untill they open it up. This isn't good news.

I wouldn't read too much into it right now. Andrews is regarded as one of the premier orthapedic specialists in the US. I state this strictly anecdotally but it seems like every time you have a high profile athlete with a "blown-out-something," Andrews is the one that they go to.

The fact that the agent wants him to look at it says, at least to me, that he's wanting the absolute best possible care for his client. Shoot, Dunta could make his agent a nice payday. If I were the agent, I'd want James Andrews to look at him, too!

Yeah, but I think its interesting that they didn't say anything about the hammy. Or Ahman's knee.

*sigh*

I try really hard to stay positive about all of this, but it sure does get hard.

What is the recovery time on something like this? Spencer will have basically been out two full seasons. I suspect it would take a smaller guy a shorter period to get back on track, but who the heck knows.

Is there another team in the NFL that has had wose luck with injuries in the past five years? When you combine the bad luck with the bad decisions...you have to feel lucky that we can put a competitve team on the field.

What is this "competitive" you speak of?

We'll be lucky if we see Dunta any next year. A hammy torn straight off the bone? i shudder to think the kind of pain that brings, & this is coming from someone who sees the insides of peoples' chest in heart surgery all day.

Believe it or not, we are still in the playoff hunt Not saying we are going to make a run for it...but hey at least we are not 1-7.

But yeah, the injury sounds REALLY bad. I hope he returns one year, 2 year, I just hope he does. Also if it is 2 seasons long...what is the chance that we re-sign him?
