Default Any news on Slaton?

Any news on Slaton? I know he had that hamstring issue, but haven't heard any updates at all. Was hoping to see him against the 49er's, but guess that isn't gonna happen.

Sure would like to stash Obeyeheyeahaj or whatever his name is on the PS, and keep Slaton so we can trade him, but that seems like a pipe dream at this point.

I hated to start a new thread for this, but there hasn't been anything on the board about #20 for over two weeks.

Thought I saw a post that Slaton had not fumbled in over 50 carries?

Not sure. 19 carries no fumbles 2010, but 7 in 2009 with 5 lost but cannot find last one or game break down.

Oh, wait. STEVE Slaton? I have no freakin' clue. Maybe he moved to Slaton.

Did Slaton give us anything in return for Steve Slaton...if he DID go to Slaton? Damn sure won't be getting any gizzards for him, I can tell you that much. Dammit.

EDIT: DocBar's comment is the best one in this thread, btw. Very LOL-worthy.

Per Rotoworld:

Quote:
FOX Sports Houston considers Steve Slaton likely to be the "odd man out" in the Texans' backfield.

Slaton got off to a nice start early in training camp, but he's been sidelined with a hamstring injury since August 10 and has yet to play in preseason. The Texans would prefer to trade Slaton, but his inability to stay off the shelf will greatly decrease the chances. It's unclear if the injury is serious enough for an I.R. stay. Otherwise, he'll be waived outright.

Trading Slaton sure would have been nice but RB's have been devalued alot in the last few years and I think he gets cut because he just can't stay healthy.

Default Re: Any news on Slaton?

I think releasing Slaton will be a big mistake !!!!! I understand we have 3 other backs that will see the field , but I believe he'll be back to 2008 form . I just know when he gets picked
Up by another team , he will be their feAture back racking up 1100 yards......... Well maybe that's just my homerism . I stiLl think he'll have a good year.



Just my 2 cents

My feeling is that if the Texans feel that he has a decent chance to return to practice by the 1st regular season game, they will make the decision to keep him rather that waive him.

If they do that, they either have to keep four RBs, or let Ward go. I think they keep Ward over Slaton IMO. I know I would. If they keep him, he probably won't see much time as a RB, but rather returning and recieving duties. Have they ever used Slaton as a kick/punt returner? I can't remember.

He was our KR last year. And he was not very good. Which kinda surprised me with his fumble issues.

Betting that if it comes down to keepin' a DE or LB or an extra RB, they go with the defensive guy.

If he is healthy, they may want to keep him for any number of reasons including "RB injury insurance" and even trade possibilities (trade deadline not until Oct. 19).

The 4th preseason game will determine Slaton's fate. If he plays and does something, maybe he makes it.

But if he doesn't play, or if he fumbles it . .

What little brain power I have left, I seem to expend it here. Which is a shame, because I really need to get my spaceship fixed so I can leave.

Steve Slaton went to Slaton and bought some fried chicken gizzards and BBQ sauce. Eric Winston and Mike Brisiel were there and Slaton (the guy, not the town) closed his eyes and ran into their backs. Then he promptly fumbled the BBQ sauce which flipped through the air. Glover Quin panicked and knocked it down but he knocked it down into the eyes of the line cooks behind the counter. They dropped their towels into the deep fryers which started the fire that burned Pinkie's down.

As he was running away, he pulled his hamstring and promptly stepped out of bounds at the one. KJ was running away and fell down.

That probably DID happen. I'll notify Lubbock County Sheriff's Office and give them your hot tip. Cold case just warmed up.

That BBQ sauce was really, really good. You could dip a cat turd in it and make that turd taste like pork ribs from Jack Stack in Kansas City, MO.
