Exclamation Forget IR; Chris Brown's Career May Be Over!!

Brown's Injury Considered Career-Threatening

Quote:
The Houston Texans placed running back Chris Brown on injured reserve Saturday, continuing a string of recent disappointments at the position.

Brown has a herniated disc in his back and it is considered to be a career-threatening injury, NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports.
Merge this with the thread about him going to IR if you want, I figured it was worthy of it's own thread because it's pretty massive news.

His career was basically over ever since he stepped on our field. He has always been injury prone. I would not be suprised if he never has another carry.

A herniated disc is a pretty big problem in general life, let alone playing Football. He has a tough road back if that report is true.

CloakNNNDagger's response....
Quote:
Another example of a Texans diagnosis miraculously discovered after weeks of "back spasms?" The first test in a football player with severe back spasms should be to rule out disc herniation by MRI. In a person holding down a "normal" job, it can be treated conservatively without surgery in 90% of cases (if at 1 level) and recurrence at that level is about 5% and less so at a different level. And don't forget that we are talking about a herniated disc (bulging)........not an overtly ruptured disc. If rupture has occurred, surgery is usually the only reasonable alternative. For those who are unfortunate enough to require surgery, 60-90% can return to "normal" activity. When dealing with the monumental stresses on the spine of an active RB, all the statistics can go out the door for both conservative treatment and surgical success.
EDIT:
It was the Coveted Castoffs thread

Default Re: Forget IR; Brown's Career May Be Over!!

Now I am not very knowledgable about NFL contracts but why would we have to pay an injury settlement to someone who doesn't "make the team" and quite possibly was injured BEFORE he got here. If this was preexisting how did our docs not figure that out when they checked him out?

Because he has a contract with the team and you can not cut a player who was injured while in your "care".

Also he will have passed a physical before signing. Which I guess would negate any notion that he was already damaged goods.

LOL, the crowd is getting bigger. Like I said in another thread, just hang cheeseburgers on the opposing linebackers and Buffet Dayne will change into them for five yards a pop every time.

I make fun of Dayne, but the Dayne train did provide a few good memories from last year. And he's one of the few backs we've had that can play every game. Of course we want someone better, but ya know, it's to late for that this year. Slaton with his turf toe leaves us with very little against the Steelers.

What are the chances that some people just don't think they need a real
RB and Brown was brought in just to make it LOOK like they are trying to find one?

I don't get the IR thing. Send his butt packing. It's not like he hasn't made enough money in the NFL to live 10 lifetimes, anyway.

It's been covered several times, but you can't cut an injured player without reaching an injury settlement, and they had to get down to 53 by yesterday afternoon.

He will be waived when they've reached the settlement, but in the meantime, they had to do something to get him off the active roster.

Default Re: Forget IR; Brown's Career May Be Over!!

The thing that just drives me nuts is that Brown wasn't hurt here. He was out of practices with "back spasms" before they even started hitting if I'm not mistaken. Maybe it's just my paranoid-at-times nature but I smell a rat. I think he came into camp damaged (or worse was hurting before he signed) and knew all along that this would be the outcome.

The sooner Brown gets his injury settlement and is gone the better.

So with our medical staff being at best inept show be on the lookout for previously injured guys trying to come to Houston?

Duane Brown better be a hoss. A real deal.

All I gotta' say.

If not, a lot of people here will owe SWTbound a big apology.

Our RB situation is a j-o-k-e. Anybody else ready to be as pissed about Kubiak's methodology on running backs as I have been?

Maybe this is the thing Kubiak needed to see that a quality running back IS part of the equation for a successful team.
