Default NT Sonny Harris Out for Year

That stinks! Harris played very well last week too and has looked promising. Running thin at NT. Mitchell and Fangupo are the only two that will be playing Saturday. Phillips and Kubiak mention Jamison and Crick could play NT.

Gary Kubiak says NT Sonny Harris is out for the year with a triceps injury.
Quote:
Coach Gary Kubiak announced the news on Wednesday afternoon at Reliant Stadium. Harris was injured during an individual period of practice on Tuesday.

“It’s a very unfortunate situation,” Kubiak said. “He had been playing really good for us, but he's going to go on I.R.”

Cards are falling for Fangupo!, who will become a fan favorite if his ankles hold up.


Hmmm, sure about that coach?

We're pretty thin at NT. We need Cody to be healthy for us. Watt will also help our run defense when he comes back, but I'm a big believer in rotating guys on the line. We'll need them all to be effective.

I kind of think this is a "stash the guy on IR for the year" situation. We are all pretty aware of the fact that the NT position could be upgraded next year with someone new after Cody's deal expires.

Normally when they do the IR stash we have no clue what they injured or how/when they injured it. I don't think that's the case here, but I could easily be wrong.

Either way, see you next year, Sonny

I think Harris was one of the surprises of this preseason .... I think he had pretty much punched his ticket to a spot on the final 53 and believe this is a legit injury.

If we were talking about a guy .... lets say Posey ... I might tend to agree with you , but not when the guy in question was playing so well and with the starter at his position injured already.

I had Harris making the final 53 in my list .... Wondering if he's replaced by Fangupo or someone from outside the orginization as cuts occur. For now , I'll pencil in Fangupo tho thats subject to change.

That was the first thing I thought, actually. Judging from the preseason, I was thinking they were going to have a hard decision not to keep 3 NTs with Cody and Mitchell as locks and then Harris pushing for a spot and Fangupo going to the PS.

Let me answer your question, Sylvester Williams-DT from N. Carolina in the 2nd or 3rd round. He's 6'03" and 320 lbs. and moves surprisingly well for such a big man. Or Kawaan Short-DT from Purdue, Rick Smiths favorite school, in the 2nd round if he lasts that long. He's 6'03" and 310 lbs. and also pretty quick and agile for such a big man. Either would work well in a NT rotation with Mitchell after Cody leaves in FA as a salary cap walk.

Im not so sure they let Cody walk .... Looking at the defense with and without him in the middle , there's a pretty big drop off against the run.

If Cody is willing to negotiate a team friendly deal - He stays.

I agree. I'm not so sure Cody is going to come back 100% or for long -- two back injections now, but I'm not a doctor.

The BESFs just released Shaun Smith. Don't know if there's any gas left in the tank, though.

This one stings. Fangupo was continually blocked by one man the other night. He ain't ready to be on the 53.

You do know that Cody has been the most consistent player on the Texans DL for the past couple seasons .... might not have put up the pretty numbers some of the others have but he brings it every down.


Could you upgrade the position ?! Yes.

Could you do so via FA without breaking the bank ?! Hell no.

To get the same production , you'd likely be paying a guy 3x his salary ... but hey , this is afterall Madden where you can have an All Pro at every position.

I have to agree .... Harris was looking better than Earl Mitchell IMO ... Dude was very disruptive against both the run and pass.

Fangupo need not mess around on the practice Squad. The guy is almost 30 years old. He needs to be on the roster performing or let go.

I think this is a PS stash like Dutch said.

Came out of nowhere -- Check
Some obscure injury not definitively described-- Check
Looked fine coming out of the game -- Check

Texans are going to have to scrape for roster spots this year and carrying 3 NT's might be a luxury they can't afford.
