    With the Texans performance being so inconsistent.........and last game's show as performance as discoordinated and poor as it was, the team practicing together becomes a premium need. Yet the DNP and LP continues to grow. Some have said that practice is not that important for "veteran players." After last week, it should be evident that timing and being on the same page is something that you are not going to miraculously get just by throwing your players, any players, onto the field on Sunday. Some on this list probably had no business being on the field last Sunday, and should be considered for rest this Sunday through the bye.

    (Note that Cushing has made it on the list with a knee injury.)

    Heres the list and explanation

    http://www.houstontexans.com/news/a...practice/dc94433b-c6df-47b7-9739-8c8e0b3b232c

    Thing is, the guys who arent practicing arent the ones with problems.

    Right now our worst areas are:
    Secondary (everyone healthy)
    OL (everyone who will play is practicing)

    Looks like we got a lot of banged up players. The bye week seems to be coming at a good time.

    That sucks about Cush. I would think he could use the reps.

    He may not be injured but Duane Brown not practicing is a huge issue. Watching Rashad Butler repeatedly get molested last Sunday was sickening.

    Watching anyone get molested is sickening.

    Seriously though, like someone said, the bye is coming at the right time. In Duane Brown's case it's good because now he gets an extra week of practice before coming back.

    JJ practiced today.

    Note that Mario is questionable not because of his groin, but because of a shoulder (side not identified but probably his post surgical side)

    Another CB down.....

    I don't care what he did to the coaches, the teammmates, or the fans....Jacques "Whiplash" Reeves was way better than anything that we're trying to put out there now.

    It's time to bring him back. Even if he doesn't want to come back, there has gotta be a dollar amount that can help him along with his decision.

    We got sold a bill of goods on Kareem. I'm sure he'll be great someday, but we need him to be great today.

    Kubiak's ego will not let him dial all ten digits of Reeves' phone number.
    He pretty much alluded to it when ask about it after the Giants game.

    The only CB that is really struggling out there is McCain. Watch the "Hakeem Nicks" highlights.... that's not Kj getting abused out there.

    Kj made a couple of mistakes... rookie mistakes. He is everything we were told he was going to be.

    McCain played a lot better last year.. kept Reeves off the field.

    & Quin has been damn good all year long.
    Or.. he still believes in the guys he has. That's what I got out of his answer. It's not one player, it's the whole group. After watching our games multiple times, I know it isn't our CBs.

    I'm guessing the extra pounds players have picked up since 'the good olde days' are part of the reason for the increase in injuries?

    The extra pounds have something to do with it. Steroids had a lot to do with a few years ago. Tendons do not grow when you lift weights, but roiding up allows you to go beyond the muscle size that a tendon can support. At least that's what they tell us in med school.

    And see how many former players are now permanently injured because of their playing days and the piss poor way the NFL treats them.
