Default Antwaun Molden: Placed on IR

Anyone else disappointed in this guy? I had high hopes for him coming out. It seemed like he had an excellent combination of size/speed plus decent instincts. We actually drafted him BEFORE Slaton but the guy just cant seem to stay healthy. When healthy, he cant seem to get on the field unless its special teams

He was blown up in last year's Titans game, and it shattered his ankle. Molden
has also had a hamstring issue since training camp, and didn't even play
in pre season. Hopefully, he returns to for next offseason, and has a
Jacoby Jones-like turnaround. The bandwagoners wanted that kid gone,
but our coaches know what they've got in their players.

This guy clearly doesn't have "it"

He's either injured or the last corner active

He had a decent run on special teams as the lead tackler his rookie year and has done nothing but regress

The Texans made a roster move in their secondary for the second consecutive day, placing cornerback Antwaun Molden (quadriceps) on injured reserve and signing cornerback Mark Parson from the New Orleans Saints' practice squad.

Parson, an undrafted rookie from Ohio University, was with the Texans from June 5 through the end of the preseason. The Texans released him in their final roster cuts on Sept. 5, then signed him to the practice squad. Parson was let go by Houston on Sept. 22 and signed by the New Orleans Saints to their practice squad on Nov. 4.

This is the second time in two seasons that Molden, a third-round draft pick out of Eastern Kentucky in 2008, has been placed on injured reserve. A physically gifted corner, he played in 14 games as a rookie and was one of the Texans' top special teams players with 19 tackles. He suffered a season-ending fractured ankle in the Texans' Week 15 victory over the Titans at Reliant Stadium.

Quadriceps and hamstring injuries had limited him to Molden to playing in just four games this season. He recorded two special teams tackles on the year.

On Wednesday, the Texans placed starting free safety Eugene Wilson on injured reserve with toe injuries. Veteran safety Brian Russell was signed to take Wilson's place on the active roster.

Unless he has a monster camp in '10 I expect a big fat cut. Guy can't play. People knock on Schaub's health but come right the heck on, this guy can't stay healthy. Physically gifted? I guess. Fastest man to the training room maybe.

I wish the Texans would just cut this guy and move on. He's another example of a wasted pick, one of Kubiak's project players that has never done anything for this team. Just think if we had used that 3rd round pick on an Offensive lineman we'd have a guy that would be starting by now instead of 6th round picks and UDFA's filling our interior O-line. Another terrible pick by Kubiak.

Blah, blah, blah Mr. "Cut Jacoby" guy.

Molden is in his SECOND YEAR in the league. He's obviously gifted, as
he was a BEAST on special teams as a rookie. If you'd like, I could
GIF the play on which he was hurt. Dude got BLOWN UP as he was
gunning down the field to tackle a Titan on a punt return LATE in
last year's game. Fractured ankle, out for that season. His ankle still
wasn't 100% by the start of training camp, and went it healed, he
had quad and hamstring problems.

It was only his SECOND FREAKING SEASON, and his rookie season showed me
he's someone Kubiak can stick with until he has time to play. Jacoby
Jones was in a similar situation last season, and you are quiet on him, now.
The coaches won't cut a talented player because he's hurt. You cut
a talented player when he won't work. This kid gets right, he's gonna
be a good one.

Here's the play where the kid got hurt. It was during the 14th game of
last season. It shattered his ankle. Cut him some slack. He's a good

There are times when I really wonder about this. Either that or if they know how to use them.

I must be one of the other two then! Parson is raw, but I think he has a lot of potential and with the right coaching he could be a good corner in the league.

Definitely something the Texans need.

I always thought of him more as a message board legend like Chris Taylor. If he ever showed what he was capable of, I guess I wasn't paying attention.
