I agree. as much as I was hoping for Joppru to make an impact this season, I do think it is time to look for another TE... If Joppru is as good as advertised (can block and recieve) I wouldn't mind us finding another TE (that can do the same) and then when we use a two TE formation of (Insert name here) and Joppru.. It has got to be better than the Miller and Bruenner combo ... I like both of those guys,but in the nfl a team has to have a 2 dimensional TE..and these guys are only one.

I believe the second injury was a reinjury of the first, I could be wrong but don't think so. He is young and healthy, a year off to recover and who knows what might happen.

I do remember him hurting his finger, I remember him hurting his back and I remember him getting concussions. I also remember him bursting his bursa sac on his elbow once. That looked very painful.

BTW..I'm sorry to hear of your injuries and hope you are completely recovered from them.

that did not work either. what the site said was troy sprained LCL on right knee on 11/24/1991 and sprained MCL on left knee on 11/20/94 and finally a severe bruise on left knee on 11/12/95 also. lots and lots of other injuries but that was it on the knees. good sight on football injuries if you can find it.

Well thanks for trying with the link anyway. I never seem to do that properly myself.

There is alot of difference between spraining your knee and a torn ACL...but it's not a major issue really except maybe to Troy who had to do the suffering!

I don't know if I could stand the physical abuse NFL players have to sustain throughout their careers. It sure leads to alot of problems for them later in life.

I guess I missed this. Bennie Joppru is not on the Texans roster. When was he released?

Joppru is on the Texans roster. But he injured his knee in minicamp & will likely be placed on the injured reserve list prior to the season.

I really wouldn't be to upset if he was released. There comes a point and time where you just have to cut your losses. Even if he does make it back next year he'll be like 3 1/2 years removed from football.

Why release a prospect who is isn't a big cap hit and had a 2nd round grade? He will just sign with another team and play when he gets healthy. If he was a cap problem then we should release him but to release him now makes zero football sense since we have room on IR.

Nobody with the Texans organization will be asking me, but I don't think we
should quit on him if he's willing to try it again next year. Afterall, he is yet
to quit on himself although he may decide to do so after this years injury. The thing is, none of this is his fault, anymore than anybody could fault Cass for drafting him back in 2003 - he had no history of being a fragile player, let alone anyone who would have such an incredibly unfortunate series of severe injurys over 3 consecutive years. But as usual, the financial consideration
re the cap consequences for us will be the factor that weighs the most in whether the Texans go another year with BJ.

Its like groundhog day every training camp. I agree, not like his cap hit is hurting us. Reminds me of a guy named Yatil Green from Miami. Atleast BJ's story has reached this level: Yatil Green

This one you and I agree on Vinny. The guy had a lot of potential. The real question is, will it still be there if and when he gets healthy? He had the potential to be the dominent TE we were looking for and its peanuts we are spending while we are waiting to see if it will ever happen. Accounting wise what has already been spent is not a factor, its what we will spend from here on that matters. Nobody is going to trade for him, so you keep investing and hoping, but you won't get many opportunites from here on to get someone like him from the draft if we are as successful as many hope.

So, is Jopporu out for the entire season again? Or is there a possibility that the can come back at some point in the season?

This is a real bummer that this is going to be the third full season he has missed! :brickwall

Lets just hope we are so successful that we will be picking in the big numbered end of the draft, but I'm sure you know that teams can usually get top TEs at far less the price than say top LTs. Its not that unusualy to get a very good TE in the 3rd round.

I hope Joppru recovers fully, and becomes a great tight end for the Texans. Regardless of whether he does or does not, I hope the Texans take a tight end on the first day of the 2006 draft, and I would be quite pleased if the Texans used a first or second round pick on a tight end. Mark Bruenner is not getting any younger, and Billy Miller is more of a big WR than a big, run-blocking, pass-catching TE. As Bruenner begins to phase out, it would be great to have two solid tight ends on the roster. Or, if Joppru does not recover the way we hope that he will, the Texans will certainly need at least one really good, multi-talented tight end.

All I'm saying is I wouldn't be upset if they released him. Just like everybody else I know its not his fault and its very unfortunate the way his career has started off. Having said that you still only have so long to prove yourself in this league. I hope that he'll be able to produce for us, god everyone knows we need a complete te, I'm just saying patience is wearing thin.
