    Ok - I'm confused, which is easily done. On Friday Chad got released, on saturday he ends up on IR.

    Did I miss something?

    Hmmm....I haven't seen anything mentioning him going on IR. Where did you hear this? I know he was battling an injury during the preseason, but I didn't think it was severe.

    lol apparently, it seems like we found a way to extend our practice squad by acouple players. Either that or they really hid how injured some of our players really were.

    I really stoked about Abbate, I didn't want to lose him.

    I said this is some other thread. Specifically in regards to J.Z. Had the theory right, player wrong.

    They could still do it, but I think they want him on the PS incase we lose Schaub or Sage. If they put him on IR they can't get him during the season. I think they are willing to take the risk of him being picked up on waivers to put him on the PS.

    I was also was thinking they might do the same thing with Frye (put him on IR to protect him) since he was hurt during TC and didn't get much preseason playing time to make a good evaluation. JMHO!

    I just logged into this thread for the purpose of offering this very observation. If they have him under contract, and he is worth something to someone, then perhaps the Texans want to use him as trade bait. His injury did not appear to be all that serious - heck he punted in Thursday's Game!

    In a few weeks someone will be desperate for a punter. For the most part, Stanley has done a pretty good job for the Texans. Of course, with some people on this board, if a player ever experiences a temporary downturn in his performance, then that player sucks forever after that. Fortunately, NFL coaches do not generally seem to have this rather short-sited and myopic perspective. So this might just turn out to be a clever move by Rick Smith.

    Once a player is on the IR, he's on there for the entire season and cannot be removed.

    A player put on IR cannot be returned to the team's roster that put him on the IR, but surely if another team wants to trade for a player on the Texan's IR, they would not be prohibited from doing that. Have you seen the actual rule that applies to this situation? It might be interesting to look at it more closely.

    Here's what I think happened. Houston announced their cuts on Friday, but didn't have to submit them until today. Then, they realized that Stanley (as well as Abbate) were elidgable for the IR. That's when they decided that they could put them on the IR and keep them on the roster for next year without running the risk of losing them to the waiver wire. When your on the IR, you are completely done for the season, but can't have them claimed or signed by anyone else.

    Have a link(I tried searching for it but came up empty)? I've never read about it, just assumed it was so, because I don't think I've ever seen 1 trade involving an injured player on IR. If you can actually trade for a player on IR, I pose an interesting question for you. If that player was traded for, wouldn't they stay on IR since it's a season ending ordeal? I really don't think that was their plan to trade him, I think they want to give him another chance next year.
