    I'd probably say in the area of a sprain/bruise. I'm no doctor, but i think he'll miss next week.

    Him being on the bench was a good sign for me, he might miss some time, but hopefully he won't be IR.

    I want him in the pro-bowl too...

    My guesses:

    1. Hyper-extension, or...

    2. Strained ligaments, or...

    3. Bruise on kneecap

    I think he'll be questionable or probable this week at Indy, but then be fully healthy after the bye against the Titans. At least I hope so.

    Casey looked solid, he just needs to keep his legs moving after he catches the ball, lol. Hopefully Owen is alright and gets back after the bye week. I would be really surprised if he played next week.

    I was actually pretty happy with Casey's play today. He's no Owen Daniels, but maybe he can be for the TE position what Andre Davis was to the WR position a couple years ago when AJ went down.

    Yeah, he was leaving his feet on catches and then kinda' getting tripped up and not continuing the play.

    Probably focusing on catching the ball and ensuring that he has the ball.

    He sees what happens to those who don't end the play WITH the ball.

    He made the 4th down punt fake play. Probably one of the most important plays.

    If OD is at 85 percent at the end of this week then I'd play him anything less than that sit him.

    Not sure that the Indy game needs us to risk bringing him back too soon.

    Does he give us a better chance? Obviously he does.

    Do we risk losing him for longer if he comes back too soon? Yes.

    He will have two weeks to get ready for the Titans in Reliant. Sprained knee sounds like he needs a week of rest and a week to slowly rehab it to 100%.

    I was happy with Casey's play as well. He's got really good hands but like someone else mentioned he needs to be able to keep his feet moving so he can get upfield for some extra yards. I really hope OD is alright because I have really liked what I've seen out of the 3 TE formation we've been using so much the past couple of weeks.

    From @ChronicleTexans Twitter

    John McClain reports that TE Daniels will undergo MRI on Monday but it appears he may be done for season with torn right knee ligament

    This is why I side with the players during these holdouts and contract negotiations. I hope the Texans do the right thing and give this guy an extension despite the injury.

    Please don't let that be the case.

    Well that TE pick in this years draft seems like it may have not been bad at all. Hopefully Dressen and Casey can hold it down until he's back no matter when that is.

    This won't help his contract situation.
