Remember the trainwreck the Texans defense was with Dominique Barber and John Busing starting at Safety? Well, that's the first thing that popped into my head when I heard that Bernard Pollard was sent home from practice today with flu-like symptoms.
Gary Kubiak commented on the issue that he was "optimistic" that Pollard would play this Sunday against the 49ers. Let's hope so.
UPDATE: Nick Scurfield updated via his Twitter account that Pollard returned to practice today and appears to be fine. Whew!
