    Brett Hartmann was on crutches. I'd expect #Texans are shopping for a punter.

    Utterly ridiculous.

    Field position has been CRITICAL for us this year.

    Yeah, it's a shame. You could see on his face how bad it was.

    Next man up!

    Who's gonna take snaps for Rackers? This may be a bigger deal (not that Hartmann was great at it).

    I'm kind of worried about this. Hartmann was a pretty good player for us.

    We pretty much lost 3 positions.

    I hate to say it, but is Matt Turk still an FA? Not that he's a great punter, but he has chemistry with Rackers, which is really the important thing.

    i'll eat my serving of crow, i didnt think hartmann would cut it because he was inconsistant during preseason, but he's been a bright spot with his length as well as accuracy this season. i really hope this isnt something serious because he's been a huge factor in keeping us in positive field position.

    I don't know that I would get my hopes up for seeing him back on the field this year.

    c'mon doc, lie to me until monday lol.

    i didnt figure he'd be back though, just wishful thinking. did meynard land anywhere?

    not that there's ever a silver lining when someone gets injured, but maybe our field goals will improve. hartmann is slow on his plant and rotation isnt consistant from what i can see. rackers would probably benefit from a change.

    What happened to him? I looked up just in time to see him laying face down not moving? Was it non-contact?

    Wow kick off specialist, punter and holder... GONE.

    Get to it Rick Smith.

    Maybe Delhomme is an experienced holder?

    Yep, like he got his cleats dug into the turf and jacked up his leg.

    Well, Rackers can do the kickoffs again so that's not an issue.
