Houston Chronicle: Injury Bug bites Houston

Post by patriotscpfc on Tue 10 Jan - 21:19

Houston Chronicle (via AP):

Head Coach Paul Patriots announced the loss of 4 of his starting Offensive players for the upcoming games against Arizona and Jacksonville as well as the continued absence of backup QB Johnny Manziel.

"Lamar Miller's injury is an abdominal tear and he will miss the next 2-3 games" said Coach Patriots at his press conference. Miller leads the league in Rushing yards this season as well as in 2017 and carried the ball 27 times in Oakland before getting injured early in the 4th quarter. 

Miller's absence follows a game against Jacksonville where relief QB Manziel suffered a tear as well as starting TE Martellus Bennett who will continue to miss a substantial period of time. These injuries add to the pain of starting QB Brock Osweiler's 9 week injury and 2nd year speedster Will Fuller's 8 week injury occurred back in weeks 4 and 5.

The Texans continue to lead the AFC South at 4-2, but with a crucial game ahead against the 3-3 Jaguars, this reporter wonders how the team can continue to progress without 4 of their 5 key offensive pieces. 

Can a team starting Tom Savage at QB, Alfred Blue and DeAnthony Thomas at RB and an ageing Vernon Davis at TE continue to pound the ball into opposing teams, we shall see.

* DeAndre Hopkins has rejected a contract and does not want to stay in Houston for the foreseeable future. The Texans are tight on cap room but would be looking to cut numerous starting players to fit under the cap. Would the Texans consider a trade for their monster WR? This reporter believes the price would start at 2 1st rounders.

*Jadeveon Clowney is also in contract discussions with the team and is refusing to budge from his 7 year contract request. The Texans are desperate to secure the services of their OLB and will be making another offer.

*Rumours that rookie WR Tracy Lacina has passed Jeremy Kerley on the depth chart haven't shown up yet, but 2nd year LB Bernardrick McKinney has had a big uptake in snaps and may have up-rooted the incumbent Brian Cushing as starting ILB.

I heard that the Texans might accept a 2nd for that WR of theirs.
