PFW reports that the Texans are hoping that they can get guard Mike Brisiel back in time for the postseason.
The Texans hope to get ORG Mike Brisiel back in time for the playoff run after he suffered a broken leg in the Week 14 win in Cincinnati. But S Danieal Manning, who missed only three games with the same injury, was an exception — not the rule — in making such a speedy recovery. It could be a much taller order for a much bigger man, Brisiel. Backup Antoine Caldwell, a former third-rounder with starting experience, should not be a huge drop-off from Brisiel, we hear. Houston loves Brisiel because he is the ultimate tough guy. “He would run through a wall if the coaching staff asked him to,” according to a source on the scene. “But Caldwell is actually a better athlete.”
