    I figured they would get him on IR and let him have another go next year. If there was no ay to IR him this year they would have had to cut him.

    Agreed, this was inevitable. Kinda like how they found a way to stash Nolan on the IR last year.

    I hope the "new" thumb will hold on to the ball better.

    Ha, yup. I never knew what Nolan was IR's for until a couple few months ago.

    I don't mind being the first to say it, but let him go... he might be fast, but that is it... he is too small to be a receiver or back...and unless he can break one at least 1 a game, he is taking a spot from someone who can play more than 1 position..I don't want the "threat" of being able to... and I have yet to see any positive things from him this preseason so far...
    He gave it a good try..

    Err - he's not taking a spot any more :) (but he would not have made the 53 man roster of PS in my opinion)

    I completely disagree. IR doesn't cost the team a thing besides his minimal salary. There is nothing wrong with it, and another offseason with Joe Marciano could make the difference.

    If Holiday turns out to be the real deal, this in an excellant move by the Texans. If not, no harm done. I'm good with this. We got other folks that can return kicks. Besides, I'm not gonna cry over 6th round picks anyway. They generally are 6th round picks for a reason.

    I was joking in the other thread about putting him on IR or the PUP list just. I didn't think we could actually do this. I don't want to downplay his injury, it just seems like a loophole to me. Hurt thumb? Let's get him some surgery and we can hang onto him for a year. Great news!

    I did the same thing, my thumb got stuck in a face mask on a tackle I should have had surgery but instead I kept playing, now I have this:

    You evidently started watching later in game. He had a 28 yard return the first kick off. Perhaps we should allow him a bit of slack due to nature of his injury? Many of us gave Jacoby Jones a hard time for two years because of his problems but he now looks pretty good. Holliday is a 6th and will be out for year. I am not upset.

    Is there a link to any of this? The injury, the time off, the surgery, placed on IR...anything?

    As long as he's got the wheels I say kick punts to him all damn year and if next year he ain't got it then he never will.

    You think that is bad, Ronnie Lott cut half his finger off to play the season.. I would give my left nut to see a Ronnie Lott type person join this team but we are like a box of muffins on defense.. soft, squishy, and all warm inside..

    All I gotta say is BS!! Good excuse for dropping balls and looking like a dimwit out there. There will be plenty of good punt/kick off returners in the draft next year. WHY pay this guy even a "miminal" salary for doing absolutely NOTHING!!! Geeeezzzz!! Wish my employer was so kind!!
