    why was this guy cut? slaton is not an acceptable backup. ward looks to be done. What if foster goes down? What about the 5-10 carries slaton wastes that could goto a younger healthier back?

    We all blew off foster last year because of his injury and practice squad title, we liked slaton for awhile ,then kubiak puts in cris brown, we all got surprised by foster. Why not give the guy a shot ? Its been 4 weeks from his injury to heal.

    Jeremiah Johnson wasn't cut. He's on the PUP due to an injury.

    Jeremiah Johnson dislocated his toe. He's not playing for anybody right now and can't back up Foster (though he's arguably got the potential to be an upgrade over Steve Slaton considering what we've gotten out of him recently).

    I don't know if he was released with an injury settlement or what. It's like he vanished into thin air and I didn't get that. He was easily our second best RB in preseason and seems to have a really good feel for running in this scheme.

    I am wondering too where is he on a possible addition back to the team and how the toe was coming along. I think he did a nice return in preseason, I know it was preseason but still, he may be able to get Slaton out of the #2 spot at relieving Foster and start doing the kick offs too. I am correct on the kick off return in preseason? Does anyone else remember?

    Slaton needs to be off the field for good.

    He needs to be cut next year and we need to have another kick returner and we need to have another #2 RB. He may go on to do good things with another club, but his time here looks like it's done. He looks like he can't make anybody miss, and he's always running into piles of bodies.

    I've seen this from too many Texans players before. I don't have a specific name for it, but I can spot it from a mile away.

    Happy trails Steve.

    Not according to the Texans website. He's nowhere to be found.

    I look for Trindon Holliday to be returning and Tate to be your alternate back.

    This thread title needs to be edited ASAP as it reads as "breaking news."

    Not only is he not going to back up Foster, he's not even on the damn team.

    Here's a possible name for it: Pile-driving.

    Definition: Running into a pile, effectively ending a play short of the line of scrimmage. See: Steve Slaton.

    I agree with Mailman. The title is misleading. I saw the title and said "WTF, did they sign him this morning or something?"

    I egree, he's a shell of himself from 2008 and looks totally out of place on KO returns. If you can call it that.
