Default Earl Mitchell Starting vs. Redskins

Don't know if anyone else caught this or not
Quote:
Defensive tackle Amobi Okoye did not practice Thursday after tweaking his ankle in practice on Wednesday.

Its bothering him and its still sore today, so I kept him out in a boot, Kubiak said. He was not even over here. Hes day-to-day right now.

If Okoye cant play against the Washington Redskins, rookie third-round pick Earl Mitchell would replace him in the starting lineup.

Got confirmation from inside source as well that Earl is starting, so I'm hoping he can have a great game for the Texans on their way to victory

Okoye did practice yesterday. So it's not sure that Mitchell is starting, albeit likely.

Right but it was a non-contact, no-pad walk thru as they do every Friday before a Sunday game.
I'm thinkin Okoye dresses, but is held out and kept in a reserve status.
It's a long season and this is a non-divisional, even non-conference game.
Plus Mitch is talented and this seems like the perfect opportunity to get him some extensive experience.

I think he will play,maybe just a limited snap count but I think he will play because on the video on their website kubiak said amobi was feeling better and that the boot was just precautionary

getting tired of these injuries ?, dude this is football, it's going to happen, TEXANS have good solid depth this year to hold down the fort until the starters heal, also look for some practice squad players to pay huge dividens for the Texans before the yrs. out.

I know this is football and people get hurt (seriously, who doesn't know that???).......but some teams have less people get hurt than others and losing your last two 2nd round picks for the season before week 2 is here is not a good way to start the season injury wise. You don't want to be counting on depth before week 2 even starts.....there's still another 15 games to be played. If lady luck doesn't start looking our way, we'll burn through our depth before the bye week even gets here.

There's in excess of 50 players listed as either out or doubtful for Sunday's games and exactly none of those players are on the Texans roster. The Texans are one of only 5 teams out of 30 (The Monday night game's not listed yet) who have nobody listed as worse than questionable.

Additionally, there's not a player on our IR list who was listed as a starter at any point during the off-season or pre-season. Yeah, it'd be nice to have Barwin and Tate available, but I think we are clearly better off from an injury standpoint than most teams.

I'm looking forward to seeing what Earl can do. He looked pretty dang good in preseason, and seems to be catching on fast. Good challenge for him. I hope he lets the Skins know what a Texas home-boy can do!!

Damn! Nothing against Earl Mitchell but considering how Okoye played against the Colts, I'd rather see him in there.

Earl was getting pretty close to sacking Manning a few times in the game. His run defense is suspect and when I say close to sacking Manning I guess you could say everyone on our d-line was. Just stop the run, and let our boys do work.

Ankle injuries are killing me...I think Okoye still sees some snaps but I'm eager to see what Mitchell can do with some game time. He is going to be a step higher in the rotation now, post-Barwin's injured ankle anyway. I hope Okoye gets a bit of rest from this week and limited snaps, as much as I'm constantly disappointed by his selection he's clearly one of the better DT options on this roster.

Mitchell was a valuable pick (have to admit I was scratching my head last April, though). I'm looking forward to seeing him play; I want to see what he can do.

I like Earl, but in the preseason, I saw several plays where, despite pushing his OL behind the LOS, he never even saw the RB run right past him just to his left.

Very nice argument. I have nothing intelligent to reply, so I'm giving you raspberries.

& while we may be healthy relative to other teams, I'm siding with Carr Bomb on this one. Tate, Barwin, JJ, Molden, ?Okoye? we're eating away at that depth awful early if you ask me.

However, I do not doubt Okoye will play. If he can walk, he'll play. Just like Mario.
