    Cedric Killings - Left game with severe neck injury - probably career ending

    Anyone I missed?

    I think thats more of an assumption. Even if he is healthy to come back he'll probably never start again.

    Yea don't make that assumption unless you've heard something. It didn't look as bad as Everett's but we'll see. He did lower his head which unfortunately seems to be a theme.

    Hopefully he will have a full recovery

    Total guess based on the announcers sounding pleased that "he has feeling in his extremities following a very serious neck injury"

    Out of our starters, we've lost:
    starting SS (Earl)
    backup made starter S (Simmons
    starting WR (AJ)
    backup made starting WR (Jacoby)
    starting RB (Green)
    backup made starter RB (Dayne)
    starting C (McKinney)

    Well they only sounded pleased because neck injuries are extremely dangerous.

    Just because a guy hurts his neck doesn't mean he is done tho.

    The announcers know just as much as us about the extent of his injury.

    Sounds like another year of the Texans leading the league in injuries.

    You have to have the depth to compete in the NFL. It's great to have all the stars as starters, but it's just as good to have guys that can step up when your stars go down.

    You know all things considered I should be thrilled that we put up a good fight against the Colts but I am not. I am incredibly disappointed over the injuries. I hope Andre, Green, Dayne, and Jacoby can come back next week. This is a really fun team to watch when we have the guys in there.

    Edit: Any news on Spencer?

    I hope that we are able to shake this off and move forward.

    Its ironic... Someone on ESPN said before the season said given his history he doubted Green would make it to Halloween without an injury..

    I hope the guys that got injured are more nicked up than anything else. Cedric Killings obviously is the exception. I pray he's okay. I hope Ahman Green, Jacoby Jones, and McKinney can come back next week. McKinney came back in the game after he went out (according to the radio) so I think he'll be alright. I can't imagine Dayne would be out 2 consecutive weeks with a chest bruise or whatever he had. If both he and Green are out, it's going to be like last year with our awful running game...

    I was hearing he was done for the season. Did I mishear something? I hope so.
