Cause for concern, I think so, but like others have said, maybe putting TJ in from the start isn't such a bad thing.
Full Rest? Well, Walker will be held out of the final mini-camp practices, and will have until training camp to heal up. How long is that? A month and a half? Is that long enough? He could even stay out until the start of the season to heal up if needed and that will give him about 3 months. Is that long enough? Help me out here.

Easy killer, he's not hurt, I'm sure he's got the sniffles or itchy-butt or something. Dom takes care of his vets and he's not gonna overwork his guys. They'll give him some made up injury so he don't look like a grampa over there in the sideline. And even if he really is injured, so what. He ain't that good. He also seems like he's accepted losing, I mean just look and listen to how he composes himself after a loss. Do worry about TJ and his over extended elbow. They won't give a rookie the "stomach flu" or anything like that, he's really hurt yet it does seem minor though.

Don't be surprised if TJ is the wolf.

Bring out the shotgun Old Walker is done for.
I hope the season starts soon so I can hear something logical come out of peoples mouths. Until you hear some definate news don't make assumptions. He is not out for the season or anything like that. I am actually looking foward to the pre-season.

I think you have a serious misread on Walker. He hates to lose and is outspoken about it time and time again. He is also in great shape and will be a force this year.

This is likely one of those injuries that they will take a precaution on but if it was gameday he would be playing. We always see a ton of those kinds of "injuries" throughout the offseason. No point in aggravating it any worse than it is.

I may have a misread on Walker but it isn't a sreious one. I also did not say he doesn't hate losing, just that it seemed as though he's accepted it. I hope you're right about him being in great shape but turf toe (last years injury) doesn't go away (see Eddie George). As far as him being a force, it'd be nice but I ain't holding my breath.

He's one of our few pro bowlers. We seem to lose faith in our injured Texans so easy around here. Texans84 was at his house the other day and he looked fantastic and says that is behind him. He's one of my favorite Texans.

This is a tempest in a teapot. Much ado about nothing. It's making a mountain out of a molehole. He just needs to take it one day at a time. Hey, No pain, no gain. Him getting back to form is a no brainer. Easy as pie, like a hot knife thru butter. I'm sure he'll take one for the team. The fat lady hasn't sung yet. It'll be like shooting fish in a barrell. He may be over the hill, old as dirt, and a little long in the tooth, but I see the light at the end of the tunnell. He may have lost a step, but should he throw in the towel? I say he needs to keep fighting the good fight, overcome all odds and give 110%. That's my two cents.

This just means that Johnson will get more practice in the mean time.

So many people do lose faith in our players when unpredictable things go wrong. I don't think I could make it through a game (let alone a season) recovering from turf toe and a nagging shoulder injury, while being 6 foot 2 and 305 pounds.

Turf Toe is more serious injury than it sounds. When a player sustains a turf toe injury they are actually tearing the capsule that surrounds the joint at the base of the toe. Tearing this joint capsule can be extremely painful. Furthermore, tear of the joint capsule can lead to instability and even dislocation of the joint at the base of the toe. This may lead to accelerated cartilage wear and arthritis of the big toe.



On a positive note, looks like no other alarming injury related to the hammy:

Texans | G. Walker Back with the Team, does not Practice - from www.KFFL.com
Tue, 14 Jun 2005 21:22:31 -0700

Megan Manfull, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans DE Gary Walker (hamstring) rejoined his teammates Tuesday, June 14, but he did not practice because of a pulled hamstring. An MRI revealed no other significant damage.
