    The Vikings/Seahawks game is playing right now and I was pleasantly surprised to see Bennie Joppru playing with the 1's.

    I thought I read here sometime not too long ago that Joppru was out for the season? Guess not.

    That's part of the reason I was surprised. I kinda recall early in TC that he was hurt or something.

    Bennie was "tweaked" earlier. His name just connotated "season ending".

    He was on their roster last year, so I wouldn't be surprised if he makes the team. After a year in the system and a full training camp, he has a good shot at competing for a starting slot - IF he has any of his old skills left. Barring those injuries, he could have been the pukka multi-role tight end the Texans finally got in Daniels.

    Its like they say, if a dog hears a bell and then eats, then he drools when he hears a bell. If you hear Jappru, you think of IR.

    Well he didn't show up on the stat sheet. Take it for what it is worth.
