    Texans promising G David Quessenberry
    suffered a broken foot in practice and is
    expected to be placed on IR. He was
    drafted N the 6th round.

    Not good news!

    That sucks. I also heard this morning that Wade Smith may be ready to go for San Diego.

    I hope it's smoke and mirror.
    Perhaps the Texans are counting on Wade Smith and just need a roster spot somewhere else?

    Well, that's my hope anyway.

    Had we not protected (the awful) Cody White he may have been claimed and we'd be in even worse shape now...

    Damn.

    Well that takes care of the cut that would have happened once Antonio came back after week 1.

    Very unfortunate. And this rookie also provided depth at OT and not just guard. Long-term, he still looks a likely starter in the Texans OLine, but it's too bad he won't be there for us this year.

    Couldn't he be on that special IR where they can return after week 8? I didn't think a broken foot could cause someone to miss a whole season. We've seen guys break legs and still play in the same year. Paging Doc Cloakndagger I suppose.

    I don't know if they would want to use that on a back up O Linemen. Don't get me wrong, I am really excited for Quess in the future, but I seriously doubt he was going to be a starting force on the line this year.

    I bet they hold the designation for a more significant player, if that happens.

    And of course, just as I say that, this happens.

    This team is strong enough to survive losing a rookie offensive lineman.

    Wade Smith has missed one game since 2008 & that was in 2008. I think we are ok but Q needed the work. As Myers is also very steady, Ben Jones will get some reps as he did last year at guard.

    Agree on both counts. Of course my first reaction was 'oh, what fresh hell is this!!!!' but after thinking about it for a few minutes I climbed off the ledge before the cameras showed up.

    I loved the "next man up" thing because it was perfect for that year, especially since we went to the playoffs with so many 'next men.' However, I could live without the need for such a mantra in 2013.

    Have a speedy recovery Quess!

    Sure, but I have to say, this sucks. If you take the view that he was just depth, then this is no big loss at this point. That would seem to be the majority opinion, so that's cool. I do not have the same confidence in the players ahead of him on the depth chart. Wade Smith's play concerned me, and that was before his injury. Ben Jones is just not good. I am just about to the point where I don't want to see him on the field, ever. So in my view, Quessenberry was going to have a chance to continue moving up the depth chart as the season progressed.

    So this sucks.

    Totally sucks, and right as we are gearing up for game 1 injury free. But tis life of the NFL for everyone, and we will forget about Quess soon enough and he will be upside next year. Lets just not have anymore season friggin enders. There are a few players we simply cannot afford to lose if we want to win the AFC, and this isn't one of them fortunately.
