    Finally.

    I really think that Green's injury is a repeated of DD/Ws, and that this is it for his career.

    Over here.
    I just hope we don't keep him another year and see this happen again.

    I don't think I'd take another chance on him.

    I was expecting a season out of him. I know we signed him to a 4 year contract- thought we get 1 good season, 1 mediocre and then release him.

    boy was i wrong.

    And if we do....we'd better get somebody other than Ron 'are you going to eat that' Dayne via draft or FA. :gun:

    Truthfully, I expected the Texans organization to say:

    "we're just resting him the rest of this season, he will be back 100% for next season. We'll have him on a conditioning program although he doesn't really need it because he's in the best shape of his life. It's just a knee bruise and he will run it off in a couple weeks...we expect to extend his contract in year 4 and give him an $8million bonus."

    Good. Let him go, let's just start over at that position in the off season. Even if we don't do anything at all, at least knowing where you stand with Dayne is better than wondering if Green can play and getting your hopes up.

    However, we REALLY need to address the RB position along with the offensive line in the off season.

    You can't have a running game if every week you are having to juggle which hurt or mediocre person is inactive. What a waste of a season.

    We had a problem at RB before this season. The FO tried to make a short-term fix, it turned out to be a bit more short-term than we hoped for. Stuff like this happens, but at least they're TRYING to fix the problem :)

    Of course it is not that big of a shock, but when you couple it with:

    "Green is the 17th player to the placed on the Texans injured reserve this season. They lead the league in players on IR."

    It's a real kick the shorts. :brickwall:

    I wonder if Green was a rookie , would he play ?

    They said he looked good in practice but now it's no ... to the IR you go .

    The Texans are the place to go I guess to get that last paycheck .

    Frog I am going along with your avatar theme .

    Awesome!I might have to keep Yukon for a bit. Pretty tough guy who takes out and tames Bumbles.

    I'm with you on the IR thing. I think this is starting the off-season despite probably being able to play or get through it.

    I can't say I was shocked by this, I hope he rehabs well. Anyone know the cap hit if/when we cut him?

    In other news, I hear the Texans will sign Priest Holmes out of retirement next year ... 3 years/$13M.
