    I know I (for one) don't believe what the Texans say when it comes to injury reports.. but this really surprised me. I thought we would be among the leagues highest (cough *Jets* cough)

    we are a little more than half way down the list

    Very interesting. I can see where some of these numbers can be significantly skewed by injuries occuring during the preseason (it would seem that these may not be counted), injuries occuring prior to a bye week, and injuries near the end of the regular season rather than the beginning (including how far a team goes into the postseason).

    yes


    I guess with Boselli and DD .. I seem to have a opinion formed that the Texans downplay injuries (overall) but they seem to be right on (according to the link) . however the Colts and KC seem to downplay the injuries and the Jets (mangini era) seem to play possum when it comes to injuries
