    Texans' Coutee, McCarron won't be healthy soon

    HOUSTON -- Texans coach Bill O'Brien said he doesn't expect wide receiver Keke Coutee(ankle) or backup quarterback AJ McCarron(thumb) to be back "soon" for the Texans.



    Coutee missed all but six games last season because of injuries to both hamstrings. In those six games, he caught 28 passes for 287 yards and a touchdown.

    McCarron injured his thumb during the Texans' joint practice with the Packers on Tuesday. Had he not been injured, the backup quarterback was expected to start in the Texans' first preseason game.

    Houston signed quarterback Jordan Ta'amu, an undrafted free agent from Mississippi, on Wednesday but quarterback Joe Webb played the entire preseason game.

    "Tomorrow? No. A week from now? Probably not," O'Brien said. "And so we'll just keep playing it by ear."

    The writing is on the wall in big bold letters. Coutee is joining Fuller as somebody who can't stay on the field and whose value to the team is LESS than zero. Hop takes a battering for all 3 positions and is beginning to go down because of it. Call it "compensatory" injury. Let's give up on the speed idea, put a couple of natural TE's at wideout and slot, and build our throwing game around possession receivers.

    The Kyle Shanahan approach definitely helps the run game as we saw with Kevin Walter/AJ at WR.

    Jalen Hurd looked good last night, he’s a freak specimen.

    @AaronWilson_NFL: Texans rookie tight end Kahale Warring is in the concussion protocol, according to a league source. Warring got hurt in Green Bay after missing time previously with hamstring injury. Warring is making progress. Today marks his third day in a row out after missing the game.

    Hopefully, this doesn't become a string of concussions for him. With our depth at TE, he should rest until the season starts. Another injury and he could land on Magical IR Resort.

    MY LAST UPDATE:


    MANCZ-LOW ANKLE SPRAIN.............AFTER 2 SEASONS OF KNEE ISSUES, WILL LEAVE LOWER LIMB MORE UNSTABLE FOR FURTHER INJURIES

    MARTIN---HAMSTRING.............LIKELY DUE CONTINUED EFFECTS OF 2 HIGH ANKLE FRACTURES

    JORDAN THOMAS----HAMSTRING A WEEK AGO.......BEGINNING TO RUN, BUT NOT CUTTING

    JJ WATT---GROIN........SUSTAINED IN 1 GREEN BAY PRACTICE.........HAS ALREADY UNDERGONE BILATERAL REPAIRS OF SEVERE ADDUCTOR TEAR SURGERY WITH PARTIAL BILATERAL RECTUS MUSCLE TEARS............ALONG WITH 2 PREVIOUS BACK SURGERIES AND THE TIBIAL PLATEAU FRACTURE WITH ITS 2 SUBSEQUENT SURGERIES, HIS CORE HAS BEEN SIGNIFICANTLY COMPROMISED, ESPECIALLY WHEN REQUIRING TWISTING MOVEMENTS AND STRENGTH AGAINST DIRECT HEAVY RESISTANCE..........THIS LAST MINIMIZED "TIGHTENING GROIN" IS NOT A GREAT SIGN

    COUTEE---ANKLE..........REPORTED AS "MINOR" RUN OF THE MILL ANKLE SPRAIN, NOW REPORTED AS SIGNIFICANT...........AGAIN MINIMIZED, AS IT IS NOT BEING REPORTED AS TO WHAT IT REALLY IS.........A SEVERE HIGH ANKLE SPRAIN.........SHOULD NOT RETURN FOR WEEK 1...........AFTER HIS EXTENSIVE HAMSTRING INJURY HISTORY, HIS ANKLE CONDITION DECREASES HIS LOWER LIMB STABILITY, AND INCREASES HIS CHANCES FOR ADDITIONAL LOWER EXTREMITY AND CERTAINLY HAMSTRING INJURIES

    CRAWFORD---UNDISCLOSED, BUT THE WAY HE WAS LED OFF THE FIELD, LIKELY A BACK RE--INJURY.............MISSED LAST 7 GAMES OF 2017 BECAUSE OF A SEVERE BACK INJURY

    MCCARRON---THUMB...........REPORTING HE SHOULD BE BACK SOON..........NOT REPORTED, BUT IT IS AN ULNAR COLLATERAL LIGAMENT TEAR...........USUALLY REQUIRES 6 WEEKS IF NO SURGERY REQUIRED..........IF WE FIND THAT SURGERY IS ULTIMATELY NECESSARY TO STABILIZE THE JOINT, RECOVERY WILL BE 2-3 MONTHS

    WARRING----HAMSTRING..........MORE WORRISOME THAN PRESENTED..........NOT REFERENCED, BUT IN HIS LAST GAME OF LAST SEASON IN COLLEGE, HE SUSTAINED A HAMSTRING INJURY THAT DID NOT ALLOW HIM TO LATER PLAY IN HIS BOWL GAME......THEN WHEN WORKING OUT IN CALIF WITH WATSON IN THE OFFSEASON, RE-INJURED IT...........TRIED TO RETURN TO PRACTICE THE LAST DAY IN JULY, AND AFTER A FEW DAYS WAS ONCE AGAIN SHUT DOWN..........NOT VERY PROMISING SET OF EVENTS............NOT TO MENTION THAT HE PRESENTLY IN THE CONCUSSION PROTOCOL FOR A CONCUSSION SUSTAINED IN THE 2ND GREEN BAY PRACTICE

    DUKE JOHNSON---HAMSTRING............INJURED ON THE 3RD DAY OF BROWNS TC..........SOME SAY IT WAS FAKED".......CONFIRMED TO BE REAL.......DESPITE THIS, WAS CLEARED BY THE TEXANS MEDICAL STAFF, WITH THE REPORTED EXPECTATION THAT HE WOULD NOT BE PREPARED TO PLAY IN PRESEASON GAME 1 DUE TO SHORT SCHEME EXPOSURE...........NOW THE ORGANIZATION STATES THAT HE WILL DEFINITELY NOT SEE THE FIELD PRESEASON GAME 2
