    The Texans would never reve ... err, conceal injury information. I'm shocked at these allegations!

    I honestly don't have a problem with it. There was a 0% chance he would miss those games. No point in putting him as "probable" if his status was definite.

    Exactly. Except, you know, those pesky NFL rules.

    LOL, the Texans are like the anti-Patriots. Brady is "probable" every week for the last 7 or 8 years and he always plays.

    The information was out there. It seemed like every week I would read reports throughout the week that Schaub was dealing with injuries and be limited or held out of practice

    Schaub was listed on the injury report for weeks 6 and 7 with hip/shoulder so these accusations are completely false.

    Same here, but to take it a step further...

    I was wondering why they wouldn't just come out and say Schaub will be out for 2 weeks and ready to play again, then in two weeks, say game time decision, for another couple of weeks... just to make teams wonder who's under center for a couple of games?

    That kind of gamesmanship seems to be common in today's NFL.

    This. Who plays proffessional football and avoids bruises? Never played in the NFL but I'm almost positive that being sore is a prerequisite.

    More attention seeking meaningless drivel from Florio and crew at PFT.

    Yellow midget journalism at its best.

    Exactly, Florio is also the asshat that wrote that crap about why the Texans should bring Favre in.

    I'm more concerned about the stipulations that dictate what needs to be reported & what isn't.

    Do they have to list every single thing?
    Because the Texans were obviously not trying to hide the fact that Matt is not 100%​

    If there is no question that Matt is going to play, then does it really matter that they didn't report a hip bruise or a sore shoulder?

    I think teams should report fan injuries too.

    Yah, i just want to know what is considered worthy of a report... Is a "hip-bruise" considered an injury by the league, or just that: "a bruise"... Or if a player sits out a practice because of bruising/soreness, though the intent is for healing and the player will still start that week, does the sit-out require a listing on the report?

    I guess i'm also making the point that 99% of the starters in the NFL should be on the injury report at the least mid-season and beyond, if that is the case..

    Not trying to quarrel with VinnY here, just honestly don't get the big dealness of it..

    Having played "sandlot" football with NFL players in the past, if I played in an NFL game, they would have to open up 2 new categories for me.............ALMOST DEAD and DEAD.:tiphat:

    He supposedly split reps 50/50 with the first team for the entire month. Kubiak said that he had injuries that kept him out of practice during that time period. The Texans didn't put him on the injury report during the time that Leinart was taking all those extra reps. Its the timeline and the math.
    donno, they weren't reported but Kubiak and John McClain both stated that he was too banged up to take all the reps.

    hey, I'm just sharing news I hear. I thought that was what message boards were for - perhaps you think they are designed for spinning stories to match your disposition...donno, whatever. Teams have been fined for this in the past. Seems like something we could talk about.
