Default Reeves out 6-8 weeks

Just received a tweet that stated that Jacques Reeves is out 6-8 weeks with a fractured fibula. Bummer. In other news, Myers has a high anke sprain and is out indefinitely, and TE Anthony Hill is on crutches (???) due to a foot injury.

Wow the two players I was most critical of got hurt on the same day.

That sucks, but atleast it isn't for the season with Reeves (haven't heard what the prognosis is with Myers yet). Hopefully our depth can hold up. I think Kubes went one day too many with the pads.

Does this make Dunta's contract and happiness more of a pressing issue? I think we need to get him in camp, but don't know what it's going to take.

This can only help D-Rob's negotiating position. It might also convince him further to avoid TC altogether and avoid any chance at re-injuring himself till the games count.

Just got another tweet that says that this injury will not require any surgery for Reeves. Rookie CB Glover Quin has been diagnosed with a bruised knee (yikes, atrocious Ahman Green flashback!)

It's probably just a hairline fracture if he was able to walk it off this morning.

Default Re: Reeves out 6-8 Weeks



Reeves has poor ball skills and instincts imo, but does have great speed. Ok, say he misses four games, that's all good and dandy. But, will he lose a step the rest of the year? Probably, and that's his ace in the hole.

I think we need to redouble our efforts to resign Dunta, and get Molden healthy to see what we have there. Quinn needs to be all that and a bag of chips, and also get over his knee bruise. If there is anything that is going to derail our first winning season, it's the secondary.

Default Re: Reeves out 6-8 weeks

Not good news at all - but I would rather get this now than at the end of camp.

The first regular game of the season is September 13. If he is out 6 weeks - we get him back game 2. If he is out 8 weeks - we get him back game 4.

I am sure some are thinking that Dunta is happy now because he has more leverage. There is no leverage to be had - no one can negotiate long term deals at this point. I won't argue with Dunta's position regarding coming to practice - those are the rules of the game. He is as entitled to sit out without penalty, just as the Texans are to franchise him.

This injury makes me that more mad about this situation - sitting out is a selfish move IMO. It doesn't give Dunta any more leverage - it just punishes the team.

http://www.drchiodo.com/Pages/disord...le_sprains.php

"Most high ankle sprains are initially treated with a walking boot or even a cast. The decision to use either a walking boot or cast depends on the severity of the injury and the preference of the treating physician. Both devices will restrict motion of the ankle as well as motion between the tibia and fibula, allowing the injured ligaments to heal. Again, it is important that injured individuals be informed that these injures take roughly twice as long to heal as lateral ankle sprains. In one large study, the average recovery time for these injuries was more than 40 days. As such, physical therapy may not be initiated for several weeks."

http://www.sportsinjurybulletin.com/...kle-sprain.htm

Incorrect management can easily turn a recovery time from 3-4 months into a 12-18 month epic. Iíve seen it happen and made the mistakes myself as a younger clinician!

Default Re: Reeves out 6-8 weeks

I wonder if this could actually put more pressure on Dunta to sign and get to camp even sooner? Those are his teammates out there and they need him now more than ever. And if we stay thin and its an issue, and he is continually holding out while he would be slated to make however many millions if he reported... the entire fan base could start to turn on him even more so than they would have.

Damn. Our defensive backfield is starting to look even worse than it was last year. I didn't think that was possible. While Reeves isn't great, he was usable. It certainly looks like we'll have some rookies or other very young players starting at CB. Crap.

Our new secondary coach is gonna be busy.

Did Reeves injure himself looking back towards the ball?

LOL...I kid. He doesn't look back towards the ball.
