    How come no one has mentioned Pitts going down in practice this morning or is it buried in another thread.

    I hate to say this but without him on the line I will not feel good at all.

    I don't live in Houston so anyone hear anything on the local radio there?

    Where did you hear this? Man, if he misses any significant amount of time, we are in serious trouble.

    I guess we'd have to go Weary Flannagan McKinney

    Ouch! I hope its not true :(

    I haven't seen anything. I agree with you, though.... Pitts is my favorite lineman.

    On the other site they are saying it is just back spasms, lets hope so.

    At least McGrady knows a doctor in Waco that he can recommend.. Chester, if ya need a ride, I'm sure we can find some volunteers.

    I just read the practice quotes----It does not sound good.

    You usually aren't carted off for back spasms. That sounds awfully serious. Also, there were about 3 or 4 questions regarding possible back ups and how it is to lose a starter. Not good at all.

    Especially since HOdgon was the first name mentioned as backup for Pitts (vomits in mouth)

    Cramps do happen.. and this heat just makes it worse.

    In regard to Owens...Remember TO at training camp last year? Mr. Stationary Bike?

    It's the middle of August and HOT. TO would go get a MRI on a case of suspected "Erectile Dysfunction" if it meant he could skip a practice.

    Just remembering his center play from last year I guess. I haven't seen him at all this year, so I shouldn't have jumped to conclusions.

    He looked small to me, and neve rplayed with the authority I'd seen out of good centers.

    I only assume that Guard is even more demanding than center physically speaking, so was nervous for that reason

    Over here.
    Hodgedon was descent as a backup Center a few years ago. Then, last year he looked really bad to a lot of us at Center when he played it. A lot of people say he just doesn't have enough "junk in the trunk" and strength to really be good.

    If he replaces Pitts, that is a huge drop-off, even if you still find him descent.

    I about freaked when I first saw that Fred Weary got rolled up in the same practice, but it sounds like he's OK. That would've been our two best O-Linemen down in one practice. :gun:

    Heck I got back spasms reading the title.

    I wouldn't put too much into being carted off. A guy that big with back spasms probably shouldn't be walking much. Could be a pinch nerve or cramp. Better safe than sorry.

    I don't think he makes the final roster myself.
