Didn't see this anywhere.... Texans' Adibi to get 15-20 plays this week at LB The Texans realize if another linebacker goes down, they will be in trouble. That's part of the reason the team is going to start making it a point to get rookie Xavier Adibi involved in the defense. Even though Kevin Bentley will start in place of Zac Diles, Adibi will see 15 to 20 plays. Adibi will play one of the outside linebacker positions. The weak side is where he fits best. That means, if DeMeco Ryans has to leave the field because of his shoulder that's still bothering him, Bentley would wear the defensive transmitter, and he or Morlon Greenwood would move to middle linebacker. Adibi would then fill in for whoever moves. This is what the Texans didn't do with Diles last year, and then later regretted it. They never got him involved until the offseason. They want to see what type of player they have in Adibi. He is behind a little because of the medical issues he was having. But he is now supposedly no longer losing weight and is ready to take on the larger role. ...... Per Manful at the Chronic: http://blogs.chron.com/gamedaytexans/2008/11/adibi_to_see_time_on_field_thi.html I was excited about him as a draft pick. I remember watching him play LSU in the first game of his last college season and was stoked to hear that he had been drafted by us. I guess we might get a chance to see what he can do.
