Marcel Shipp About To Become A Texan?

You'll never believe this, but it looks like Ahman Green's inconsequential injury from the first preseason game seems to be lingering a bit. I for one am shocked. Because if there's one thing we know about Ahman Green from his time in Houston, it's that wild horses can't drag him off the field. Wait...did I say "field?" Because I meant "training table."


Enough of my childish sniping...the Chronicle is reporting that your Houston Texans are bringing Marcel Shipp in to "add more experience and depth to the backfield." Methinks that's code for "take some reps for the next two (2) weeks and don't plan on being in Pittsburgh," but the fact is that I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if the seemingly inevitable catastrophic injury to one of our brittle RBs opened the door for Shipp to stick. Man, I'm negative tonight.


On the bright side, Super Steve Slaton, who has looked the sharpest of all the RBs in the early going, is going to get reps with the first team offense on Friday night. So we've got that to look forward to, right?
