Houston Chronicle : When it came to his #2 RB, Gary Kubiak didn't
sound very optimistic after the Texans' 16-6 victory against the
Browns. Kubiak said from what he understands, the Texans may have
to go at least the next 2 weeks without Ahman Green backing up
Steve Slaton. "Unfortunately, Ahman is down," Kubiak said. "It
looks like it could be a few weeks, just talking to (head team
trainer) Kevin (Bastin)." Green frowned when asked about such a
timetable, and said that he is a "fast healer." He will have an
MRI done Monday on his left knee. Last year, he injured the same
knee in the first game. He didn't heal very fast. He played
sparingly in 6 more games before landing on the IR. He said this
injury is different, but he didn't explain exactly how. It wasn't
a topic he was jumping to discuss. The injury itself isn't much of
a surprise, but it is a blow to a team that really does need Green
on the field for the offense to be at its strongest. Green has
been on the field sharing carries with Slaton in all four of the
team's victories. He has been healthy for just four of the 7
defeats. Green said he will do all he can get back on the field
for the MNF game against Jacksonville.
