    We need another young, mobile QB who can throw. Now. And for next year when DW4 comes back.

    I can't help but wonder if he'll ever be the same. Mobility was a big part of his game. Now we have to just hope that he might be ready for the 2018 season, but will not take part in OTAs, training camp, or preseason games.

    This sucks so freakin' much.

    What you have seen is post-ACL.

    Ah, gotcha'. Wondering about CnD's opinions about how this might affect his mobility after he's healed. Big part of his game so far, especially in the pocket.

    THIS RIGHT HERE. THIS IS WHAT IT IS TO BE A HOUSTON SPORTS FAN.

    The football gods, hateful sacks of monkey **** that they are cannot tolerate even a complete 24 hours of happiness in Houston. The Astros bring joy to the entire region and so along come the football gods and their minions the Houston Texans to **** up our lives with not just an untimely, unfortunate injury. No that would be sad but something the team could work around. No, first the team has to trade the one decent offensive lineman they have and the only thing that might have made it even a little bit possible to protect the statue that we have backing up "The Flash" for even a couple of seconds.

    This season is over. Next season is cast in all kinds of doubt. Sounds like business as usual for this team.

    I looked it up, and his college ACL tear was listed as a grade 3. Link

    I don't see how that's even possible. I've never heard of anyone playing on a complete tear. Unless it was a misdiagnosis.

    Phillip Rivers tore his ACL against the Colts in the playoffs and played the next week against the Pats.

    This is another case of drafting players or signing players with injury histories. Sometimes Ricky gets away with it (Ellington) sometimes he doesn't. (DW)
