(Houston Press) – Last week, on my radio show on SportsRadio 610, my cohosts and I went through the exercise of listing our five most irreplaceable Houston Texans for the upcoming season. We each made our lists privately during the break, then revealed them during the subsequent segment. Well, all three of us had the same top two players, and we quickly realized that to keep the segment from getting boring we would have to hastily revise the criteria.
And so it was amended as follows — list the top five most irreplaceable Houston Texans not named J.J Watt or Arian Foster.
Sometime Monday night, while practicing in front of the 5,000 fans who made it out to the Texans’ practice facility, Arian Foster injured his groin, injured it badly enough to likely require surgery that would put him on the shelf anywhere from 3 to 6 months. To grasp the damage this injury inflicts on the Texans’ 2015 season, just go back and read the previous paragraph of this post:
