There will be no one month recovery this time for Danieal Manning. The eight-year safety has had his season cut short with another broken leg-- this one sustained in the third quarter against the St. Louis Rams. As Tim noted yesterday, Manning broke his leg in 2011 and was back on the field in about a month. Not this time.

Cornerback A.J. Bouye is also done for the year with a hamstring injury.
Drew Dougherty notes the corresponding roster moves the team made to replace the two vacant roster spots.
"The team signed cornerback Elbert Mack to the active roster, and brought linebacker Mike Mohamed up from the practice squad. Cornerback Josh Victorian was added to the practice squad."
The replacement for Manning on the depth chart is already on the roster, but will it be Shiloh Keo or D.J. Swearinger getting the biggest boost in playing time?
With his 2013 season over, Manning has just one more year on his contract with the Texans, where he's set to earn $6 million against the salary cap.
