Default Joppru Hurt Again!!

Quote:
Friday the 13th passed without incident, but tight end Bennie Joppru's run of bad luck reared its head again just three days later.

Joppru went down Monday during the Texans' first coaching session of 2005. The former second-round pick made a cut on a pass route during a non-contact drill and was helped off the field by the training staff.

"I've seen Bennie out here during our off-season work over the past two months running the same kind of routes," head coach Dom Capers said. "It's just one of those things. He planted his foot to make a cut and the next thing I know he went down. We'll not jump to any conclusions. We'll wait to see what the doctor's diagnosis is and go from there."

Joppru, the 41st overall selection in the 2003 draft, has spent the past two seasons on injured reserve with a groin injury.

"He's probably over the last three years had as tough a luck as anybody. But that's part of this game. It's just unfortunate."

Lets wait to hear what the doctors say. But this is something I did not want to talk about.

IMO Enough. I just don't see any point in continuing this. Assuming of course that we're talking about an injury similar in scope to what he's dealt with over the past two years.

If it's a "stubbed toe" or something minor then that's entirely different. If he's done something major though I say this has gone on long enough.

Wow! I won't say it's all over for Bennie but we sure could've used him. I guess I'll just keep my fingers crossed and wait and see what happens, but if he's out again it's a definite blow to our offense.

its only a sprain, please let it only be a sprain, you think we feel bad as fans that joppru is hurt, think about how bad Bennie feels right now, and has been feeling, this has to be 10 times harder for him than anyone of us, the guy is a football player, and would be a solid one, he just cant seem to get past this problem

"helped off the field by the training staff."
That is not the least bit encouraging. Guys can often limp off the field under their own power with a minor type leg injury. How much bad fortune does one guy have to have before he catchs a stretch of good luck ?

Honestly, if he can hurt himself out of 2 seasons and then do it again on his first practice back, how could he possibly withstand any hits in the nfl? one tackle and he'd shatter like the people in those gatorade commercials. this is ridiculous, lets move on.

UFA Tight Ends (Franks is a transition tag FA):
Ken Dilger
Cameron Cleeland
Jay Riemersma
Rickey Dudley

I have no preference. But the Texans need a body at the position. Before you jump on the Texans for not drafting a TE, remember that this was considered an unusually weak TE class. Only 10 TEs were selected, the lowest total since 1980.

Right, but are their really 10 teams that have more issues and uncertainty at
TE than us ? I doubt it.
I dunno...this is the thing that bothers about some of the decisions that Cass
makes - I think over the long term PB is a wise move to replace Glenn, but Glenn probably had another year or two of mileage left. Instead of picking up
PB (or someone like him right now), keep Glenn and use that 2 and 3 this year to get a TE and a top tier center/guard out of the Draft instead of taking only one OL draft pick including TE and that is just a second day pick
at that.

Why don't we wait for the June 1 cuts..............maybe we'll get lucky ?

And this wouldn't have been such a big deal if we'd signed an all-around tight-end instead of Mark "over the hill" Bruener. What was Casserly thinking ?

He had no way of seeing how injury prone Joppru would be, but, he did know that Bruener couldn't catch..........so what was he thinking ? Why didn't we get a TE that could block and CATCH when we had the chance ?


OH BROTHER!
