Houston Texans Injuries: Danieal Manning Has "Major Hyperextension Of Right Knee," Could Miss Rest Of Season

Heal thyself. - Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Danieal Manning appeared on Houston's ESPN 97.5 and updated fans on the status of his knee injury. The news seems to have gone from bad to worse.

Yesterday, news broke that Danieal Manning, the starting strong safety for the Houston Texans, would likely miss six to eight weeks with a "a significant knee injury." We were all appropriately disheartened. Or so we thought.

No, there was more disappointment to come. Manning went on Houston's local ESPN affiliate and painted an even bleaker picture:

During a radio appearance on 97.5 FM, the eight-year veteran said he could be out six to 10 weeks and has a major hyperextension of his right knee. He’s considering surgery, could be placed on injured reserve, and may miss the remainder of the season.

Recall that Manning broke his leg two years ago and was back on the field in approximately a month. This is not a man prone to malingering. If Danieal Manning's amazing healing powers can't fix his knee in time for him to return this season, perhaps the deck truly is stacked against the good guys in 2013.

Get well soon, Mr. Manning.  Until you return, we're all living in Shiloh Keo's world.
