Default Breaking News! Mario has a sports hernia.

Well, breaking news for some. Some assumed it, others thought it possible... I guess the breaking news is that the team has released that information. I think the Texans horribly mismanage player injuries and we have one of the worst training/medical staffs in the NFL. Here's a quick story I just posted on the subject with some links to other related stories from this off-season. I'm contacting Cloak and Dagger to continue a detailed discussion we had earlier in the off-season for a more extensive article on the subject:

They could've shut him down in July or August and had him back healthy in October... Not only that, but I think this is an injury lingering from the '09 season. So, he could have had it dealt with in March and been healthy for camp. Unfortunately, none of that got down and the coaching staff and GM are fighting for their jobs. They believe a crippled Mario gives them a better chance to keep their job than a rotation that includes Tim Jamison and Mark Anderson... I disagree, actually, but this organization is always very slow to make the appropriate personnel decisions.

Mario is a tough dude. He's quiet too maybe he's the one begging to play these games?

I also think Andre is still dealing with injuries himself, That last big play he caught he just didn't have the speed I expect to see out of Dre.

You can't really hold anybody responsible for down talking a guy who is not performing as he has in the past. Not unless they knew this beforehand and decided he was lazy anyway.

8.5 sacks and a sports hernia, yikes.

It's pretty good production for a guy who's hobbled. All I want for Christmas is a new coach and a healthy Mario Williams in 2011.

Except that he is performing as he has in the past, that is, performing very well. DESPITE this injury. Yet some people insist he sucks, has sucked since he's been here, and doesn't try. Nice.

If it were up to me, should we be mathematically eliminated from the playoffs - I would seat Mario and AJ for the rest of the season and let them heal up fully. We definitely need a new wellness staff for next season, no question about that.

I spear-headed a lot of that discussion a few weeks ago. Not that he has always sucked, but that he was playing with a lack of effort that was infuriating... However, I also acknowledged that my opinion is based on the assumption that he is reasonably healthy. It is unfortunate that the organization handled things so badly that I actually had to hope that the top pick of the draft in 2006 was seriously injured.... yippee, I got what I was hoping for. uggh.

sit Foster as well. RBs can typically only handle so many carries in a season.

Don't mind them, those are the undercover VY fan boys. Currently, they don't have anything to say about their boy b/c he's done for the season. In that regard, they just try & find any opportunity to criticize our LEGIT multi pro bowl DE.

I was thinking the same thing. But some of these Texans fans will turn on our stars in a heartbeat. You only have 8.5 sacks?! Corners getting sliced and diced? Mario, you asshole! Lets cut him!

Still think they need to just shut him down and get him healthy. We are done in 2010 anyhow.

I knew there was something going on with him besides the hip injury, glad it's something with a good prognosis.

Shut him down asap, his long term health is more important than a shot at a couple meaningless wins down the stretch this year. His health is also certainly more important than saving someone else's job.

Yep. We have been done, I first thought that right after the MNF debacle and was certain of it after the SD game.

He hasn't been able to change directions for a couple months and its obvious to me. The guy is basically the only playmaker on the defense and it sucks that he has to play hurt because of this. The guy has played hurt every year and people still rag on him. I guess its just the number one pick factor that no matter what he does it will never be good enough for some people.

I'm not so sure of the "good prognosis". Sports hernias are tricky things and, especially since they have been treating it all season with steroidal shots, they may have done further damage to it. I've got a call into CloaknDagger and am in the midst of some other research as well... but, he may be damaged goods, at this point.

No, it's the very pedestrian performance. When the team asserts that he's healthy and fans watch him simply engage TEs and stand still on consecutive plays in big games, some fans are going to think he's not giving good effort. That is something fans care about. I sure do.
