I think it's just that this team has been burned so many times in the past with contracts that came back to bite us, even with ones that looked good at the time. Dom Davis deserved his extension. You know the rest.

That said, Dunta's injury is different, and I would love for him to come back this season and show his worth. If anyone can, he can.

Honestly, I don't think Dunta wants to go anywhere. This team is finally heading uphill, he has been waiting for that for some time now. No reason to leave when the getting is good.

Not only that we have Bennett here who is an old friend/teamate of Dunta.

Dunta Robinson-DB- Texans Mar. 9 - 2:08 pm et
Texans CB Dunta Robinson (torn ACL, hamstring) expects to begin the 2008 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

"Sorry to disappoint the people that thought I was going to be out for a year, year and a half – that’s not going to happen," he said. If Robinson is placed on PUP, he'll be eligible to return in Week 7. The Texans' secondary will be a nice fantasy matchup with Fred Bennett and Jacques Reeves starting.

It is news to read that an injured player wants to be back...better news if medical evidence supported the player's claim.

He's going to need a warriors ACL to go with that!

Its not the kinda thing you can play with when its not totally right. I'd rather see him miss all of next season, than try and come back too early and face another layoff.

Default Dunta's Recovery

I saw him running on the news last night and though it is light running and all I didn't notice any gimp or anything to show that he might still be a little nervous. I'm thinking he is trying to get back by the first month and not midway through the season. I'm sure with a contract on the horizon and all he would like to get there as soon as possible.

I heard much of what Dunta and Charles were doing was just running. Was there much else to their training/rehab today? How'd they look?

(They were pretty much just doing running. But it's quite a feat Dunta is even out there already.
Sorry, couldn't find video

Default Re: Dunta's Recovery

Here are some quotes from Dunta off HT.com. I don't think you can get a more positive attitude than Dunta has right now.

Normally I end up with man crushes on Dlinemen, but I love this guy.

Quote:
(on if he is worried losing a step when he comes back) ďNo. If I come back, itís going to be probably a little bit better. Iím not worried about losing a step. I think guys lose steps when they donít take their injuries serious. If you come out here and attack these things, then you can come back better than you were before, and thatís my plan. Iím not going to hurt my team by coming out there and losing a step Ė even though I think me being 85 percent, I feel that Iím better than half the corners in this game Ė but if I come back, itís going to be 100 percent. And losing a step, thatís all mental. That wonít be a part of my game.Ē
Quote:
(on what he would say if he could speak to Texans nation) ďDunta Robinsoníll be OK. Thatís the main thing. I will be back. Youíll see me out there in that 23 jersey running around again, and youíll see the same player I was before this injury.Ē
Check the rest out. Good stuff.

I was encouraged to see him running too. I know he said he wants to make it back by the first month of the season, but I think realistically we should be looking at the middle of the season at best for his return to the field. It is good to see that his rehab is going well, and seems to be a little ahead of schedule.
