    Man, that truly sucks. The man was busting his hump to make this team. I wish him well on his recovery and future.

    Is it possible to write anyone to make a limited number of H. Williams # 86 jerseys and/or T-shirts and for those purchased a portion will be donated to a charity say like National Spinal Cord Injury Association or The Gridiron Greats Fund

    Any ideas....I would buy a Jersey and a Shirt

    As soon as I saw Cook got arrested I knew Jon would come back

    Harry is a definate loss to this team, While cook has his head where the sun don't shine.

    Prayers need to be sent Harry's way for a speedy recovery

    Hopefully Harry has some other options. Guys that gambled it all on football (and other sports) often don't have much of an alternate skill set.

    That is actually a real good idea! Consider contacting the Texans administration with this idea ? Its one of these feel-good things that they cant refuse.

    I often peruse the "questions for Nick" thread on the other board and he's apparently in the process of setting something up.

    Here's a thread you can post your well wishes. Nick says he's going to print it off and show Harry when he arrives in Houston.

    Even if you don't like that board go over and wish Harry well anyways.

    I seem to recall that when Frank Bush was a rookie and had some sort of injury that ended his career immediately. The Oilers (Mike Holovak?) gave him a job and he's worked his way up since then.

    Maybe RS and Mr. McNair can see fit to find a staff position for Harry if he's coach material.

    Well, sorry to hear about Harry, but after seeing that hit I knew he would probably not be playing football anymore. The way he was playing I think he had a good shot of making this team. It's just too bad it had to happen.

    One guy's career is over because of injury, and another guy's career maybe over because he chose to throw it away. What can you say about Cook except don't let the door hit you on the way out! Dumb#ss! On the bright side, I love that Abbate is coming back!

    While watching sportscenter tonight I saw stories of chad johnson's torn labrum, brady's boot, umenyiora's knee, manning's whatever, merriman's pcl........

    But NOTHING about this poor guy's career being over. Kevin Everett(also a special teamer) was all over the place when he got hurt and even on the Espy's.

    What's the difference? The Texans not being on the east coast?

    The man's career was ended and it just scrolls along the bottom, as if they are saying, "no biggie, but some guys neck got broken and career was ended this weekend...". Makes me sick.

    Sorry, I just had to get that out.

    From HT.com, nothing new except from Tim Carter and Fenton, and not too suprising at that.

    Released FB Jameel Cook and WR Tim Carter.
    Waived G Mark Fenton.
    Placed WR Harry Williams and OL Scott Jackson on the reserve/injured list.
    Placed CB Dunta Robinson on the reserve/PUP list.

    *edit - thanks for merging KT, I looked but didn't find the appropriate thread to put it in.

    Should be at 75 now with no cuts needed before Sunday (unless they sign somebody before then).

    The cuts actually have to be in on Saturday, I think. But Smithiak has said that they're going to decide the cuts on Friday and tell the guys then.

    they're going to be on the fence in a couple key areas, WR/special teams, DL, RB & CB. they stated the obvious making the it to the 75 roster limit but as yet have really cut no one expected to be there opening day. Any significant additions/subtractions will come post Friday. Starting with the game this thursday its going to be an eventful week leading up to the start of the 08 season. :)
