Default Re: Dunta News

Worst timing ever for a player to have an injury like this. It could cost him millions. He was fixin' to get a major payday extension during the offseason but now I expect it will be late '08 before they do anything on his contract - just to see how he comes out of all this.

And untill I hear other wise, no news means this is Bosselli II untill I see him on the field and hitting it full bore.
You can't cut a guy while he is injured, so we will see Dunta play for the Texans again, even if its just camp or preseason.

Sure they can, if they pay an injury settlement. I think Todd Wade's was around $300K. Chicken feed to a team that gives Jordan Black a $1M signing bonus.

I'm not saying they will, just saying it isn't that hard to do.

Default Re: Dunta News

I said from the beginning that DRob will take the Spencer route next year and I still stand by that. The only real question is what do the Texans do at the CB position next year. Clearly Bennett looks like he can hold his own at that position so who plays his opposite?

Do the Texans draft a CB or do they go after a FA? Then what do they do with DRob?

Of course you can never have to many CB's.

I have no idea what will happen, but it looks like DRob will be out next year. I think we will draft another CB in the later rounds.

Default Re: Dunta Update?

On 610 after the game on Sunday, I think it was Matt and Adam that said Dunta isn't expected to be back until November. I can't find a link though that supports that. I don't know if that was just speculation or what. If that's the case, I think we may need another cornerback more than we need a safety

I don't know if it is career threatening. If people have started to make full recoveries from torn achieles injuries I'm going to hold out some hope.

In his presser, Kubiak said mid-season ( http://www.houstontexans.com/news/St...?story_id=4112 ). I've heard late season. So, yeah, CB is a big concern.

Learning from history, I would expect Dunta back during the 2009-10 season. When has a Texan ever recovered from an injury in time?

Default Brief update on Dunta

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...t/5537040.html

Quote:
Robinson still questionable
Cornerback Dunta Robinson, the Texans' best defensive back, is working like crazy to make a miraculous comeback from surgery to repair a knee ligament and hamstring on the same leg. It still might be November before he can return, and no one knows the level of performance at which he'll return.

The Texans have to find cornerbacks in the draft and free agency. They also need a free safety with range. No area on the team will get the same attention as the secondary.

That's just one of the many reasons Smith and Kubiak will be working overtime on the draft and free agency to help ensure the Texans continue to improve from 6-10 to 8-8 to their first winning record.

It just sucks bigtime that Dunta's injury is as bad as it is. He is one my favorite Texans and we lost a player from the thinnest position. I just hoping that he makes it back and is able to play close to the level he was at.

Keep working Dunta! We miss you and we need you!

I sent him another card the other day, second one since last falls injury.
I'm sure he must enjoy and appreciate hearing from Texans fans and it can't do anything but help his attitude in his recovery/rehab.

One of the things about Dunta that I admire is that there will be no question as to whether or not he is doing everything he needs to do to get back on the field. With at least one or two other Texans' players, I always heard grumblings that though they were working to heal, they weren't doing everything they could to get back on the field. That's not meant to be a dig against those players (Davis, Spencer) - and I'm certainly not a paragon of health myself - but I know Dunta is doing everything imaginable to get back on the field.

There's a video and transcript of Dunta giving an update and 2008 expectations at HT.com. I love the way he's attacked his rehab as well as how optimistic he is.
