    Why can't this ever happen to The Colts?

    What the link said is so true. Wes Welker tore his ACL in the last week of the season, and his practicing. Owen tore his halfway through the season, and still isn't practicing. Sucks.

    Worth noting - I have yet to see the ACTUAL QUOTE that Kubiak gave, so I hope the above link isn't mischaracterizing what he said as a "setback."

    It's kind of strange that for something as major (even if it's not major) as this, there's no mention of it on HT.com, on Chron.com, or any local media outlet.

    Also, all stories I've found ultimately credit it to ESPN.com, and if you search Kubiak, and Owen Daniels on their site, there's nothing to be found (at least relating to a setback).

    Yep, exactly. I'm kind of wishing I would have found the ACTUAL quote before I linked to the story here... but still newsworthy I guess.

    Journalistic Integrity FAIL.

    I do seem to recall reading something yesterday about a minor setback, but I'm thinking it came from Dainels. And the setback was a couple of weeks ago.

    But then again, I'm drunk most of the time.

    The only person I remember hearing a setback from was Chris Mortenson yesterday, when he was at training camp.

    Here's a better link (provided by my man BigRon)

    So far, it seems as though the word "setback" is Mort's word. Oy vey.

    Let's hope Journalistic accuracy and/or contextual fail also.

    Cheers. <clink>

    Just brought in a fine lookin' dancin' chicken and am catching up on shoulder pad day. Can't wait till they go full speed.

    This is the first I've read about a setback and I *thought* I'd read *everything*.
    Who's taking pictures???:fans:

    I don't think Gonzalez is even close to the same as losing Daniels. Maybe Dallas Clark or Reggie Wayne.

    This is indeed a concern. A player of viable health should not be suffering a setback this far into recovery. Considering this and the fact that it's his third ACL tear by age 27, there's only one real conclusion I'm starting to accept: Owen Daniels has bad knees, and his best days are behind him. Graham is the TE of the Texans' future.
