    Par for this course if true.......in context of this season, another big blow. I bet it's accurate given that we brought up Henry already. I hate it for Slaton though, hope makes a full, speedy recovery if true.

    Just saw an interview on espn news with Adam Shefler and he said Slaton is going on the IR.

    I swear...number 37 you better not have cursed this team! We seem to have gotten past the Boselli curse, so why not throw another one at us?

    Yikes if this is true, i feel pretty bad for him. Slaton has done nothing for me not to wish he wasnt on this team next year. Just a couple bad fumbles, but i clearly think he is a good back.

    It's no curse. It's stupidity on the coaches' part. We didn't draft
    a mail carrier, and thought Steve could tote the load by himself. Even
    Adrian Peterson has Chester Taylor. This is just another reason a change
    needs to take place. Kubes. Just because you guys found Terrell Davis
    in the 7th Round, doesn't mean you don't need a franchise back.

    Its not like they got Steve hurt this year, by throwing him out there by himself. Hell the guy has had to split time with Brown or be set games due to his play.

    Damn, what a bummer. So it looks like we will have a Chris Brown/Moats/Travis Henry RB by committee. :spin:

    Oh yeah, maybe hes just not battling enough, and busting his tail enough to get on the field.

    I'm sorry but this buggs me and please change it. His name is SLATON, not Slayton!

    :lol: That could be the case. If so, we'll get the inevitable "yeah, I should've given the kid a chance to play more" at the end of the season.

    I thought it was Salton? Damn, this would really suck. I hope it's not career ending. I like Slaton and I think he is a good back that is having a bad season (compared to last year.)

    I saw him on special teams. Looks like he dropped the 37.

    I would burn my DD jersey in hopes of breaking the curse if it wasn't my only Texans jersey.
