    DE David Hunter, just called up from the practice squad, hurt his toe in practice Thursday. Needs surgery on Monday #Texans

    Tania Ganguli ‏@taniaganguli
    Hunter was brought up after Tim Jamison was put on injured reserve. Depth is becoming an issue for the #Texans up front.

    Kubiak: DL David Hunter hurt his toe yesterday and has to get surgery on Monday. Won't be available for Sunday.

    That is not great news.

    Rather lose depth than someone higher up the depth chart though.

    We'll get to see Rick Smith show off his street FA skills.

    Geez. So the only DE's we have on the roster are Watt, Antonio Smith, and Crick?

    As for available free agents, Tim Bulman is still out there.

    Son of a... Hmm. Delano Johnson from the PS is 6'4" 280. He is rostered as an OLB, but that is about the right size for DE?

    This unusual severe variant of turf toes doesn't usually allow players to return that quickly.....closer to 6 months until fully rehabbed and pre-injury functional.

    Geez, people, how bout a little sympathy for the fella? Gets called up to the show and promptly gets injured, that sucks. He still gets paid though, so he's got that going for him.

    Apparently season ending.

    Who do they sign off the FA list, and do they wait until after the game or do it before?

    They could probably move Barwin inside if Smith or Watt needs to come out for a play. Smith gets tired, Barwin takes over for smith, Braman takes over for Barwin. Barwin goes out for a rest, comes back in. Repeat.

    Don't be surprised if we see a lot of Braman and Nading this week.

    That's a huge bummer for both him and the team. Dude finally gets his chance and an injury screws it up only a few days before his first game.

    3 months for his toe? Cut it off, rub some dirt on it, and get back to work

    What happened to DJ Bryant? He had a few sacks in the preseason as a DE, and then I think we cut him and he mouthed off on twitter. Is he on someone's P squad?

    Bummer/pisser. This just sucks.

    Don't know how much he could have or would have contributed but personally for him it sucks.

    At least he's dragging starter pay VS PS salary.
