    Didn't realize the Nolan and Adibi injuries happened -- those sound pretty serious

    Nolan and Adibi's injuries sound serious. I'm guessing we don't see much of Winston the rest of this preseason.

    The broken hand and broken finger might not be THAT serious.

    Breakage is never good, obviously.

    But are the breaks in a really bad spot? Are they considered minor enough to receive a few weeks of rest (remainder of preseason) then get padded up for reg season, holding the guy(s) out of the first game but having them suited and with the team? Then ready for game 2.

    LOL...Like we'll really know with THIS team's prior history of revealing the true injury status of a player. If I hear it's really bad, then the player is OK. If I hear he's going to be OK, then he's toast.

    I'm most concerned about Adibi, its a break, he's an arm tackler and he's gonna be needed as a starter... I thought he played well tonight and it'll be interesting to see if he's out there next week I would be a little surprised

    Winston doesn't worry me, he tweeted right after the game and didn't mention it... he's a tough guy at worst his snaps are limited for the rest of preseason but I wouldn't worry here.

    Nolan is a long-shot and even moreso now, Busing has looked great.

    If Adibi is tough, the broken finger is not a big deal at all. Put a splint on it, tape it up, and it will be healed in a couple of weeks.

    So Grossman hurt his hammy? Is that the reason he made that gawd awfull pass and was pulled? In any case, nothing sounds real horrible so far, not good, but not totally horrible.

    crap I was hoping Nolan would rise up and take Harrison's place as b/u safety. Kid's got really good size. I guess how soon he returns depends on which bone(s) in his hand are broken and how badly. I've played with a broken bone in my hand that I mistook for just getting it jammed. didn't know it was broken until the pain made me go get it x-rayed.

    From Winston on Twitter: "FYI, my ankle is fine. I'm surprised it was even mentioned. Just stepped funny towards the end of the last drive. Thanks for the well wishes"

    Dressen looks fine. He was being interviewed in the locker room after the game and seemed totally unconcerned about it and he wasn't wearing a brace or anything like it.

    Rex Grossman is expected to miss about a month with a hamstring injury and the Texans are looking to sign another quarterback to fill in until he's healthy.
    Grossman, the Texans' third quarterback and the former Bears starter, was injured in Saturday's win over the Chiefs and coach Gary Kubiak says he doesn't feel comfortable finishing the preseason with only Matt Schaub and backup Dan Orlovsky.
    Kubiak says the Texans could bring back Alex Brink, who was with the team last season.
    Also injured Saturday were safety Troy Nolan, a rookie seventh-round pick, who will have surgery to repair a broken hand on Monday and fullback Boomer Grigsby who is expected to be out six weeks with a high ankle sprain.

    BUMMER!!

    More NS tweets:

    Good chance Molden comes back this week off of pup and starts to practice

    Foster likely to return to practice tomorrow. Cushing doubtful for NO but had a good weekend of rehab.


    I asked him if we'll be bringing in street FAs for tryouts to replace injured guys and he said...

    Texans will be looking at QBs, but will evaluate James Casey at FB for now. They like what he has done so far

    Like a broken finger will even slow Adibi down. No pain!
