COOKS, AS I PREVIOUS POSTED CAN BE EXPECTED TO BE LIMITED IN PRACTICE FOR A WHILE AS HE CONTINUES TO REHAB HIS QUAD...........SO THAT HE CAN PLAY IN REGULAR GAME.

GILLASPIA HAS BEEN IMPROVING, BUT WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF HE BECOMES LIMITED LATER THIS WEEK.

GREENARD SHOULD BE ABLE TO PLAY THIS SUNDAY.

HOWARD SUSTAINED A GRADE 1 LOW ANKLE SPRAIN............WILL TAKE IT EASY DURING PRACTICES, BUT SHOULD BE READY FOR SUNDAY.

JOHNSON WAS BACK TO LIMITED PRACTICE..........WOULD NOT GET TOO EXCITED ABOUT HIM APPEARING THIS SUNDAY.........AND IF HE DOES THAT SOON, WOULD EXPECT HIM TO BE INEFFECTIVE AND PRONE TO RE-INJURY.

WATT SUFFERED A HIP INJURY.............AS OPPOSED TO LONNIE JOHNSON'S PREVIOUS INJURY, THIS IS UNLIKELY A SIMPLE HIP POINTER.............LIKELY A LABRUM INJURY. WITH HIS MULTIPLE MAJOR CORE, BACK, AND KNEE INJURIES/SURGERIES, THIS HARDLY SURPRISES ME AS HIS MECHANICS CAN NOT HELP BUT BE COMPROMISED. HE WILL TRY TO PLAY THROUGH THE INJURY THIS SUNDAY..........AND I WOULD NOT EXPECT A BETTER PERFORMANCE THAN WHAT WE SAW AGAINST KC.

DT JUSTIN MADUBULKE
[KNEE]-SUFFERED MCL LATE IN TC AND IS STILL REHABBING

WR/RS CHRIS MOORE [FINGER]-SUFFERED FINGER FRACTURE BEGINNING OF TC.........OPTED FOR NO SURGERY......AT THE TIME OF INJURY, HE WAS NOT EXPECTED TO MISS WEEK 1..........FROM THE HISTORY, I WOULD THINK THAT HE FRACTURED HIS INDEX FINGER (USUALLY AT LEAST A 6 WEEK HEALING PERIOD).........SURGERY WOULD HAVE LIKELY GOTTEN HIM BACK ON THE FIELD QUICKER AND MORE SECURELY

CB JIMMY SMITH [HIP]...........IT STARTED WITH BACK SPASMS ~2 WEEKS AGO...........PLAYED WEEK 1 WITH LIMITED REPS..........HIS CORE AFFECTED HIS MECHANICS LEADING TO A COMPENSATORY INJURY

T RONNIE STANLEY
[ANKLE]...............HAD LEFT ANKLE SPRAIN IN 3RD QUARTER OF WEEK 1 AND DIDN'T RETURN...........REPORTED AS "NOT SERIOUS" SO LIKELY A LOW ANKLE SPRAIN.............IN 2018, HE SUSTAINED A LOW ANKLE SPRAIN AND MISSED ONLY 1 GAME.............EVEN A LOW ANKLE SPRAIN IN A BIG MAN, ESPECIALLY A LT IS LIKELY TO PUT HIM OUT AT LEAST 1 GAME, OR SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT EXPLOSIVE MOBILITY.

RB JUSTICE HILL [THIGH]...............SUSTAINED A WEEK AGO.............ALTHOUGH NOT SPECIFICALLY DESIGNATED, MOST LIKELY A HAMSTRING (A COY WAY OF LISTING A HAMSTRING VS QUAD INJURY, WHICH ARE BOTH THIGH MUSCLES)...........TORE HIS HAMSTRING DURING 2019 COMBINE

ALL PLAYERS HAVE REMAINED UNCHANGED (MY COMMENTARIES ON D. JOHNSON AND WATT ARE UNCHANGED) EXCEPT FOR AN ADDITION OF:

KALAMBAYL [HAMSTRING]-SUSTAINED THE INJURY IN PRACTICE............WOULD BE SURPRISED IF HE PLAYS SUNDAY, AND IF HE DOES WOULD BE INEFFECTIVE OR RE-INJJURED.

STANLEY ACTUALLY SUFFERED A "MINOR ANKLE INJURY" IN WEEK 1. THIS INJURY HAS NOT BE LISTED IN THE OFFICIAL INJURY REPORT. THE REASONING MAY BE THAT IT DID NOT AFFECT HIS PRACTICE STATUS, WHICH UNDER THE GUISE OF HIS HIP INJURY SEEMS SOMEWHAT MANIPULATIVE.

Limited practice can mean virtually anything short of not practicing at all. It's good to see that he is not ankle supported. But this does not mean he won't be supported if asked to cut or jump. Again, this in itself does not make me feel comfortable if he tries to play Sunday. Remember, a Texans pool report will show you only what the Texans want you to see.
