    Just read John Mclain tweet that said he returned to practice and could start on Sunday.

    FS Danieal Manning, who underwent surgery for fractured fibula 4 wks ago, returned to practice and could start Sunday.

    If true, damn he's a quick healer. He should give Schaub whatever he was taking.

    Unless it makes him look pregnant during drug tests. That would be bad. :)

    Just like with AJ, I'd rather give him that extra week to get back to form. I'm glad to see he's ahead of schedule though.

    I think you are joking but we are talking about Danieal Manning. The only Manning that counts!

    LOL. Good one...

    I'm sure nobody takes Cushing up on his offers to help them out with nutritional supplements. Can you imagine the response? "Uh, no thanks Brian. I'm good with what I've already got." LOL.

    Almost had a heart attack! That's the Manning I need back.

    I'm talking about Danieal as well. Wasn't this supposed to be an 8-10 week injury?

    Actually they did say there could be a 4-6 week recovery if all went well. Glad to see his back at practice. Just made that defense even stronger now. We need all the pass defense we can get for this last stretch.

    Good to hear he practiced with the team. If the Doc's clear him this week, let him play!

    I'd use him in a sub package, if at all. The Jags aren't really an offensive juggernaut where we need our top personel at every position.

    Their defense, otoh, is very good. Their D vs Leinart has me concerned.

    That picture makes it look like he had a compound fracture. Yeeesh.

    I'm looking pretty hard at it and can't find whatever you must be seeing.

    He might be back at practice but I highly doubt he plays on Sunday v. Jacksonville. Like others have said I'd much rather he sit out and get 100% healed up before trying to come back.

    HOU-TEX, your not the only one concerned. Jacksonville had me concerned when Schaub was healthy, with Leinart I worried.

    So I take it this means Nolan goes back to the bench. My only question is... does Nolan deserve to go back on the bench? We have become the #1 defense since Manning went down. I'm not saying Manning sucks or remotely anything like that... just that... what has Manning done to outclass Nolan at this point in time?

    I don't like it! We should just IR him and roll as is, because we know how it's going this year: a star goes down and it's "next man up", a star comes back and it's "next man down"... See you next year, Danieal....

    I think you bring him back like it was said before, split the reps, let him play in the dime, and quarter. Its good because Nolan has been playing well and so has Demps. We have good depth now and can keep guys fresh for the end of the season and the playoffs.
