Additionally at the Chronicle:
Injury woes continue - Mathis questionable
"The Texans just keep taking hits. Wide receiver Jerome Mathis is questionable for Sunday's game in Atlanta because of a sore foot. He started complaining about it Monday afternoon. He tried to practice Wednesday, but had to start icing it midway through. Thursday, Mathis didn't practice at all. Now, coach Gary Kubiak is trying to decide what to do. Mathis isn't a guy who has played through injuries in the past. The team could wait until as late as Saturday to make a decision, but it's tough when his absence would leave the team with only three wide receivers. Their options are clearly limited at this point. With only Andre' Davis, Kevin Walter and David Anderson healthy, the Texans must sign another receiver. The obvious options would be Harry Williams from the practice squad or Bethel Johnson, a free agent. Keenan McCardell is also an option, but would seem less likely since Johnson would at least could help in the kick returns."
Wow, we are extremely luck to be facing Atlanta this week. If it were about any other team, I would think this would be major trouble. I hope Andre Davis can have a big game!
Maybe it would have been luckier to play a great team next week. If they lose to Atlanta it will hurt - injuries or not.
At least it isn't a divisional game. I still think we can beat Atlanta/Miami with this starting lineup - I can't say the same for the Jags or Chargers.
A sore foot? FOOT???? Are they right about that? AAARGH.
Of course, someone who depends on speed for what he does generally can't play through those injuries. See e.g. Terence Newman.
The practice quotes say lower leg:
As an aside, I have to say, I love that the Texans post their press conferences. I've told various people with the Texans that I hope they continue to do so because it is the #1 reason I visit their webpage.
Now if they could only force themselves to post truthful injury reports.
I heard Kubiak talking about a sore leg.....not a foot, on the evening news.
This entire season is being derailed by injuries......it is becoming really sad.
I wonder if it is the foot, if it is the foot he had surgery on. None of the reports I've seen say.
This is starting to get ridiculous.
My fantasy football source says Mathis has a sore lower leg, is day-to-day.
ahhh man, now who's going to return kick offs for touch downs.
Dexter Wynn, if he can get past the 15.
That's the word that Kubiak uses instead of "Oh ****."
The legend of Matt Schaub is going to grow if he can win with this particular group. A crap running game and a bunch of receivers that absolutely nobody else wanted.
Big Bad Schaub, indeed.
It looks like our TE corps is really going to need to step up. I really hope Mathis can play though, but if he has to be out, I'd rather it be now for 1 game instead of play now and we lose him for more time or against divison play.
The foot he was previously operated on was his LEFT (navicular bone which lies one the top part of the arch closest to the front crease of the ankle)..........we'll see what the more detailed reports of his injury are to compare it to the aforementioned site (if you can believe the report).
