The depth at Tight End is quickly depleting in Houston. First, Anthony Hill gets swine flu and has pretty much been MIA all season. Then Pro Bowler Owen Daniels tears his ACL and is out for the season. Well, it was just announced this afternoon that his replacement, James Casey, had to undergo meniscus knee surgery to repair some damage. He is expected to be back after the bye week to face the Titans on Monday Night Football on November 23rd.
Joel Dreessen is expected to be the every down TE this Sunday at Indianapolis. Houston has been somewhat fortunate with most of their injuries up to this point, but it is starting to get back to where it was last year now. Let's just pray it is going to stop here.
