Walking Wounded

The Texans have gotten off to a promising start, and although they really didn’t play that well against the Colts, they showed some grit. However, the injury report is threatening to derail what could be a promising season. Battle Red Blog is reporting more scratches from the starting lineup.

By my count, that means we’re missing the following players:

Andre Johnson – our Pro Bowl, #1 WR

Ahman Green – starting RB and only true game-breaking threat in the backfield

Jacoby Jones – rookie phenom, both on kick returns and as a 3rd WR

Jerome Mathis – former Pro Bowl kick returner and WR further down the depth chart

N.D. Kalu – defensive lineman who’s been quietly doing a solid job

Steve McKinney – starting center

Cedric Killings – backup defensive lineman who broke his neck the other day

Ron Dayne – #2 RB who is supposed to play, but is hurting

That’s a long list and it includes a lot of our best players at impact positions. The Falcons aren’t that good, but we could struggle tomorrow.

  1. I hate to point out the obvious, but this isn’t a post about London, nor are there any pictures. We were all promised pictures this weekend.
