    For a comparison google Andre Brown NYG's.

    It's much different for a RB coming back from that injury than it is a WR.

    I remember Brown. He played for the Texans a few years ago through preseason and was waived. I think that was O'Brien's first or second year here. When he was with the Giants, He never got a chance to play that first season after the injury because they waived him 1 year after the injury. and back then it took at least a full year to 2 years to recover after that injury, and when he did, he produced until he broke his leg. Then he still produced after recovering from the broken leg. In his second stint with the Giants he helped them get to a Super Bowl. When he did play, he'd run for over 100 yards a game and average 5.2 yards a carry. That's not bad. He just didn't play in many games because he kept getting injured. He never had much of a chance. Besides, his Achilles injury was way back in 2009 his rookie year. The technology then wasn't even close to what it is today. Back then they were still doing the long incision the length of the tendon and doing an extensive suturing job to repair the tendon. Today, there's barely any incision and they use new fusing techniques with endoscopes and laser technology that leaves little to no scarring to repair the ruptures. I think he hung up his cleats after that season with the Texans. That's not a very good comparison.

    Look at his numbers after the achilles injury with the NYG's. He became a GL back. Why?

    We shall see,

    But I think it's wise to temper expectations.

    I don't think that he can he really show anything where valid even preliminary conclusions can be drawn without several contact practices..........anything except if he is not showing promise. I strongly believe he needs at least 2-3 weeks before knowing if he is ready to be thrown into game fire...........if he progresses to that point. With this type of injury, if a player is not truly ready, he is very high risk for injury............not Achilles re-rupture, but a compensatory lower extremity injury. To throw him out there this soon would be nothing short of irresponsible.

    Do you remember Billy Hickenbottom?.........He was Crap before he got hurt. He rehabbed very hard and was able to return to that same level. :bravo:

    Getting ready for NFL hitting is important. But, why is it extra important for Foreman? If he's moving well on his repaired Achilles, that should give the team some confidence in putting him out there.

    It's getting late in the year for full contact practices. Too many guys banged up as it is. Can the Texans pull a couple of guys over from the practice squad and run Foreman through some Oklahoma drills while still running a non-contact practice for the rest of the team?

    Theoretical, this could work. But until there is strong resistance in contact, balance which is a reflection of an Achilles rehab cannot be effectively evaluated/tested. Without full return of this parameter, safety becomes an issue, and a post Achilles player presents a high risk for compensatory lower limb injury.

    It's Sunday morning and I'm ready for some Texans football!
    Should the Texans get ahead, they need to keep the pedal to the metal on both sides if the ball. Don't let up because Luck is capable of coming back. Just don't give him that chance. Stay aggressive and keep after him the whole game. O'Brien! Don't be conservative at all and keep the ball out of Luck's hands!

    Go Texans!
    Git'r Done!

    It is football day. Games is at home. Team appears to be getting better with each game. I think they will come into the game hungry and focused. Defense steps up and the offense eats up the clock.

    Coutee likely out today. Carter needs to step up and hold onto the ball.
    Go Texans!
