    Does anyone know the severity of Mathis's hamsting pull?

    It's a day to day thing. But you won't be seeing him play against the Broncos.

    I thought it was a minor groin injury.
     
  4. Dang it, I was looking forward to watching this guy for the 1st time in a Texas uniform.

    Ditto that. I was looking forward to Palmer calling a straight deep pass play for #13.

    I heard he is questionable, hes not officially out for the game. Capers said it depends how fast his groin reacts to his treatment.

    I imagine they'll be cautious with Mathis. I, too, was looking forward to seeing him in action, but I think watching Morrency, TJ, Brown, Hodgdon, and Pettway will keep me entertained.

    He was in obvious pain after it happened Wednesday night. They were running redzone drills and he ran a quick out. The defender gave him a hard shove in the back and he went down. When he went down, he did a high speed rollover on the ground and his legs were flying wildly about his body. I'm pretty sure that's where it happened. I saw the earlier hammy report but it sure looked like groin to me from the treatment he was getting on the field after the play. In fact, I just read the new injury report and it says right groin.

    they will be cautious with mathis. he's one of the rookies that could have a big impact on the team.

    I was pretty dissapointed when I read the Mathis was injured and that he probably won't play this Saturday. He was going to be one of the few players I was going to keep and eye on. But hopefully he heals from this injury because those groin and hammy problems can turn into nagging problems. He's a guy that can do big things for us if he can stay healthy.

    i think he will bounce back. i have not read anywhere that he has injury problems. he might just sit out for a bit.
