    Was he able to walk off with assistance or did they bring in a cart?

    Ughhh....my heart just skipped a beat. Hopefully it will turn out to be minor injury and he'll be OK. I hope this is not a sign of things to come. I do understand it's a part of camp, but I'd love to come out of this scratch free.

    Uh oh. Maybe Caldwell will be getting first team reps a little faster than we all thought.

    injuries to starters are always bad but at least we have a capable replacement for him in caldwell if it is significant

    I just heard this on the radio. Maybe this will be Caldwell's time to shine if Myers is out for a significant amount of time. I hope its not serious though.

    This sucks. Hopefully he is only knicked up a bit and will just miss a few reps.

    Well if it is going to happen, it needed to happen now. Isn't Chris White next on the depth chart?

    exactly what I was thinking, I dont wish in jury on nobody, not even on other teams (except hanesworth cause of the comments he was making about Shaub being scared etc, but he got his late last season against us and is still paying for it this year bad knee) Chris got a lot of heart and his teamates like him so hopefully he will be fine, I just dont want no more injuries to our back end cause that will just give more leverage to Dunta, I guess they will be more inclined to promise a non franchise next year

    Lets hope this doesn't lead to him missing any significant time.

    This is always something I worry about when you hear players have put on significant more weight to stand up to defenders better. I just read yesterday that he had gained 15 lbs to hold up agains tthe bigger NTs in the league. Sometimes the body can't handle that extra 15 pounds as well as it could the original weight.

    I think Caldwell will be a nice player for us, but this line held up together for a full season last year and the players really played well as a unit. Center is an important position. Heres to a fast recovery

    I've been a critic of Myers for a while now, but this is not the route I wanted to take in order to replace him. Caldwell isn't ready, it'd be White next on the depth chart, I reckon.

    BUT, let's hope Myers will be okay and be ready.

    stuff like this is why you can't slack around and pout because you aren't a starter. You never know when your window opens.

    Must have been a pretty bad practice.
    Richard Justice just tweeted this: Gary Kubiak was as mad as I've seen him after practice. Didn't like how things went. As for me, I was very pleased for the easy column

    I thought we'd see Myers' dad posting on here more.

    He seemed to be active on the Broncos board.

    I'll echo the thoughts on being a critic of Myers last year,but I don't think Caldwell is ready just yet. They did play well as a unit last year and I'm suprised to hear Myers put on the extra weight. Shoes me he wants the starting spot bad, I like that.

    Don't want to get into an extended discussion on Dunta in a Chris Myers thread but, once again Dunta has NO leverage whatsoever. He either signs the one year Tag tender or continues to sit out, lost money, and lose a chance for other teams and this team to see he's worth the bloated contract he's demanding. Personally, I think he wants out of Houston.

    Get well quick Chris!

    based on what? Shouldn't we see him play before we pigeonhole him as a guy 'not ready'?
