This would suck if true. Luckily we have Foster and Slaton but still, not good.
You know ... the way Foster is playing and the depth they have , I'd rather see him redshirt ( I know college term ) than comeback to quick . Besides I think it's good for young players to sit , learn , and get hungry .
Appears so. John Lopez saying the same and Robert Henslee
Now hearing Tate injury is more serious than a high ankle sprain as previously reported. Tune in to SportsRadio 610 for more. #texans
this really sucks, i was really looking forward to seeing the kid run
610 says the same thing.
just got a flash on my blackberry saying fractured ankle...
And so it begins....
I think if you ask CnD he might say a simple fracture is better than a high ankle sprain .
sad, sad, sad.
He's now damaged goods. I don't like players with previous injuries too much. Just look at Slaton. I mean... folks who thought he was coming back strong from neck surgery... LMAO.
Damn. It looked bad on tv but I was hoping it was nothing too serious. I guess this gives Chris Henry and Jeremiah Johnson a better shot at making the team.
We'll see on Tate .
Slaton wants to wear flags .
If Chris Henry makes the team, I will give myself an enema.
I could not have been more disappointed with his performance tonight. There was one block where he ended up getting himself Meyered silly. I DVRed the game and intend to watch it tonight. I will try and get the time frame of that so called block but it was as clear as day.
It was then... that I realized... we need more RBs. Jeremiah Johnson didn't really look that impressive. Very awkward despite his impressive numbers.
I know there are pluses to getting rookies to sit back and learn, but thats gotta be combined with actively participating in practice.
No one redshirts and spends the whole season sitting down with a clipboard.
Although I agree, the kid will be hungry as crap, if he does miss the whole season.
Nolan did .
Ok, ok you win, lol.
I was talking more along the lines of no one (that I can recall) has a season ending injury their rookie year, and uses the year out to great effect. Although hopefully Nolan will provide Tate with some inspiration!
Gotta disagree on Johnson, I thought he looked fantastic. With this injury Henry and Johnson have great shots at making the final cut. I could see Jeremiah being 3rd on the depth chart and Henry being more of a STs guy and emergency depth/mop up. Still three games to sort it out though.
Foster cannot carry the load alone! Slaton has not changed, not ONE DAMN bit!! I think the boy has an attention disorder or something! I kept yelling at my TV for the boy to TUCK the ball. What does he do? Gets to the goalline and goes HIGH, does NOT tuck the ball, and fumbles!! I wonder how many times that boy has been told how to carry a ball, and what to do in certain situations! I have my doubts that he's teachable!!!BYE BYE playoff hopes if we depend on SS to play with his head screwed on right! Chris Henry and J Johnson are both big ? ! I think we're in deep doo-dooo at RB. JMO!!
I feel really bad for Ben. His facebook post this off season have been fun, and he was so looking forward to making it big this year, as were all his fans from Auburn. A sad twist of fate.
