I always kind of liked Braman. The guy looks and plays like rabid dog.

Hopefully Mercilus is ready to play same as his name suggests creating the luxury of allowing Brooks Reed to fully recover just in time for playoffs!

Barwin will probably be moving to the SAM, which should suit him better with his added weight.

And then of course since he can't run during that period, he will lose his conditioning. Maybe with a bye week he'll be ready to go in the playoffs which would be mid-January.
Hope he makes it back.

Making it back fully healthy for the playoffs is far from a certainty.

3-4 weeks is good news, when I first saw it I thought it was season-threatening. Hopefully he's back for games 15 or 16 and he's full speed by playoff-time.

Hopefully he will have a couple games in before the Play-offs.
Hopefully we clinch the number one seed before then, too.

So will Houston have three new starting LB's with Reed, Dobbins and James all possibly being out? How will Merciless, Rudd & Sharpton do filling in?

Well, I'm the one that posted it in another thread, and I made the disclaimer that I couldn't swear to the accuracy of it, but it was out there (I'll never forget the John Clayton injury report regarding Kevin Walter).

Tania Ganguli's got an article on Chron.com in which she describes it as "at least" 3-4 weeks, plus she's also got this out there on her twitter account:

Reed could be out up to 6 weeks. Even if it takes that long, he should be back for the playoffs. #Texans

I think they will be OK; they just have to.

Rudd made a couple of good plays.
Sharpston is getting back in playing shape.
And Merci had shown some flash.
Braman also has some burst and Nading has plenty of experience.

We just need all the guys to come back for the play-offs, or as many as possible.

IDEXAN, I would tend to agree with your synopsis. What I posted immediately after it happened.

In one study, as high as 40 % of players with this more severe degree of injury have not been able to see the field by the 20th week. We will know more after an MRI.
I would still stand by this. If the Texans are being straight, it sounds like he has suffered a significant 2nd degree tear. With a supposed 3rd degree tear that you know that surgery will lead to IR ruled out, you are still left with the concern of trying to push too hard too quickly, a notorious reason specifically in the case of this type of injury for recovery being set back (even greater than hamstring injuries)......a reason why many of the 40% couldn't get back on the field by the 20th week.

Yeah right... In Texans lingo, 3-4 weeks means he's out for the year. I do NOT trust one thing that comes out of the Texans. Or even their silence. They haven't come clean regarding Cody either.

I bet Smith and Kubiak are great chess players.
