Fred Weary, having pain. That's a guard out.

Normally, they would let Duane play the first half at LT and Winston probably play the first quarter at RT. Then Salaam or Butler would come in at RT for the second quarter.

Then in the second half, Salaam would probably move to LT for a quarter and Butler play RT. Then Jackson and Butler or Frye would play the fourth quarter.

But now, it's going to be Duane and Winston probably for a half. And then Butler and Frye for the second half. Which is more work for Winston and probabl Frye than they planned.
No matter what, by the beginning of the 3rd quarter, Butler and Frye would have been playing. Salaam is 200 years old. The Texans were not going to be him up much anyway. This opens the door for them to let Salaam go. Save cap space and move forward with Brown at LT

Unless there are complications with his postoperative course, there isn't a chance in HHHH that Salaam is released.............not with his past supportive performance and with the fact that he is the only experienced (in terms of longevity and knowing the system) back up tackle we have.

I'm beginning to see why this new 80 man rule sucks. I say drop a tight end or two, and get some OLinemen into camp.
Problem is, we're tight on TE's, too. We've got 4 right now and we'll probably carry at least 3.

The positions where we have the most players and the most excess is actually at WR, Safety, and maybe CB. I was surprised when they let Bell go to sign Tucker. I expected a wideout to be let go. We've got 5-6 guys fighting for the 5th wideout spot.

This is probably why I'm a NetAdmin for a living and not an NFL coach. LOL

Bell was out of condition and unlike the WRs, he wasn't able to "Fight for a job". Just didn't have it. I'm a bit surprised that a guy who has been in the league and gets cut doesn't work harder at being physically ready to make a new team. IIRC, he did get some pretty good dollars in Denver, so maybe he just doesn't want to work that hard. Happens.

I hope that wasn't it. For his two years in Denver, he made less than $700,000. Remember - he was an UDFA, and his annual salary never made it above the minimum.

For some reason I thought he got some sort of bonus/extension a couple of years ago. Must be thinking of someone else.

Very Nice post. It Put 'em in a pickle. As to how much to expose the QB position to offensive lineman they have no more line on but what they feel about their capabilities. I'm sure they were hoping to get Winston off the field as soon as possible. No one asked the question on six ten yesterday. I'd like the question asked so we can drive a stake in it's heart, wrap garlic around it's neck and bury the fricker.

What would it take to flip Erick to the left side?

Eric would probably have to grow some longer arms, slightly quicker feet to go along wit it. I think if Kubiak had plans for Winston to switch over to the left side we probably would not have Duane Brown on the team at this moment.

Don't let all of the "Go Winston" talk fool you, he's had his pass protection troubles as well. I think if we ever see Winston on the left it would be more temporary than permanent.

Default Re: the injury list

trying to think of who we've got for this week....

Pitts (ankle) won't play. Studdard will start in his place.
Green (groin) won't play until the regular season
Adibi (i want to say it was a foot or something) will he play?
Fletcher (don't know) game time decision

a pretty short list for late august.

Thats all I know of. feel free to update it as you see fit.

What about AJ? Are they going to play him? I didn't figure they would take any more chances in preseason with him.

Kube said AJ is going to play less than 3 quarters.

So unless something else happens, expect to see him in the game.
I don't care whether he played. Moss didn't participate in a single snap last year during pre-season, and look at the season he had.

Also, LT didn't play at all last pre-season either.

Default Re: the injury list

i don't mind him getting reps. he doesn't need them but it would be good for Schaub. maybe even just a quarter or two.

i forgot about the obvious injuries as well.

Jackson (foot) out
Weary (leg) IR
