Yes it is.

It's about time the Texans got some good news on the injury front.

Great news even if he doesn't play. He will need at least a week to catch up.

Yup. I'm still waiting to hear some good news about Andre myself. I am betting he does not play on Sunday either.

He practiced today and did all the reps with the team.

Also, the thing that made me think he had a compound was it looked like he had a hole in the sleeve on his leg right below the knee, and I thought I saw a smidge of something white poking out from under it.

I'm aware. I'm also aware the Andre has said he's ready to play. Unfortunately, that's not who I am waiting to hear from. I'm waiting for the official report.

Another thing, it's my understanding that Andre has been practicing for some time now.

Dominique Barber was put on IR, that made room for Demps.

Demps will become special teams and rotation safety.

"Felt good" and practiced on Monday Oct 31, but became too sore by the following Wednesday to practice again.

Manning played against a few real offenses.

They've been solid. Done what they needed to. Haven't been giving up big plays.

Manning should start, but Nolan has been plus in his absence.

I'd have to agree with you on your assesment & reasoning for wanting Allen in the game.. by that account, Demps should see more playing time than Nolan.

Nolan has been "solid" but I wouldn't say a plus.

If I were king, Manning gets his job back, Demps sees more field time, Nolan has to work harder.

See if I have a lot of talent I would like to figure out a way to get them all involved some way.

Now I know it's tough to get four safeties involed in the game, but GQ also can play some corner. Plus a good rotation keeps guys more fresh. Keeps guys flying to the ball..builds competition...

And we lost 2 of those 3 that you listed. Also, giving up 40 points is a concern no matter how "good" their offense is. It's still 40 points and well-above their scoring average this season.

Listen... I'm not trying to claim Nolan is better than Manning. I'm just asking what he's done to warrant losing his job? For me, this is about upsetting the balance and chemistry of what we have going right now. He probably wouldn't be returning kicks on that gimpy leg so it's important to weight in the value of breaking a clock that is working flawlessly right now.

IMO, Manning could start on any defense in the league, and Nolan is good depth at this point. Manning is an upgrade over Nolan. Nolan has been serviceable though, and in no way do I want Manning rushed back before he's 100% healthy.

You make a good point point about chemistry, this team seems to keep playing well as a unit, it's cohesiveness I have never seen in Houston. I think we are okay either at this position against Jax. Their offense is unspectacular, I am more concerned about our offense keeping it going with the QB change against a good jaguar defense.

We have 4 wins with Manning, and 3 wins with Nolan, and Manning has more talent.

It's not like it will keep Nolan off the field. I'm sure they'll work Manning in slowly, and Nolan's on the field in nickle anyway.

There's plenty of time left to compare the two.
