Tough break for the kid. That type of injury takes at least 1 year to recover from. DeMeco Ryans had the same injury. Now WR have to be addressed this offseason. He was starting to come along as a rookie compared to Martin and Jean, who are rarely on the field when we do 3/4 WR sets.

If we don't take a WR in the first 2 rounds or get one in free agency I'm gonna lose it. The passing game is AJ or bust and then we have games like today where Schaub doesn't even look AJ's way and our passing offense just becomes flat out pathetic.

This sucks. He was starting to come around he definitely was improving everyweek and he probably would have been the 2 WR next year.

I agree he showed some good thing, needs to improve still, but he looked good late.

BUT, he will most likely miss a good portion of the season, at least not contribute much....wr should be a bigger need now, via fa or the draft, I prefer free agency

He should miss the whole season. Plus another year after that at a less player then maybe he becomes his old self.

And yes wr is def a bigger need, and we need to move on from the Lenotstar experiment.

That sucks. And I feel bad for him because he was coming on.

But there is one small silver lining. He was going to be the excuse the FO could use to not take a WR early. They can't anymore.

This sucks for Posey since he really seemed to be playing better and growing as a player late in the season. This will most likely guarantee him 2 more years on the team, 1 on IR and another making a come back. Let's hope his surgery goes well and he does make a successful come back in a couple years. In the meantime WR just moved up the list of FA/draft needs.

I hope the coaching staff stays patient with him. I think he'll be really good.

Fast forward 2 yrs. from now, how does a repaired and healed achilles tendon affect a WR? What's it do to his speed, cutting ability/change of direction, explosiveness? I've read that it limits a players explosiveness and speed, that they are forever a little slower than they were pre-injury. We all saw that it seemed to slow Demeco down.

Demaryius Thomas is the most recent WR to come back from it.

This is what I thought of when I heard the news. Thomas is a beast now so I have hope that he will come back fine.

It's a shame. He had clearly separated himself from Martin and Jean and was encroaching on Walter's time as the number two receiver. This could be career-ending for a receiver.

Posey needs to get on the phone with Peterson's surgeon, trainers, and PED dealer if he wants a shot at a comeback.

Until then, I will be pimping my new, totally-not-me friend, DHopkins_Texan.

Obviously, I don't want to see anyone hurt, but at least this takes any typical delusions of coaches or fans that this guy was the answer based upon a highly limited sample size late in the season (especially the TD catch late in a blowout that will be memorable because it was reversed on review, but it wouldn't had to have been if he had just made the catch without bobbling it). This is a 3rd round pick that caught 6 balls in the regular season and 3 in the playoffs. All that makes him is a first year bust. He's done no more on the field to justify being counted on than the 2 stupid preseason games two years ago that had fans and Kubiak convinced that he could be a #2. Saying he had "separated himself" from the other 4 bums means nothing more than saying Fred Bennett at one point separated himself from 4 other crappy corners until he played enough to look as bad as the rest of them.

It's about time the Texans realize that if they ever expect to get to a Super Bowl with a QB over Manning, Brady, Ben we have to have people around Schaub that overcome the distance between Schaub & hall of famers (or enough firepower on defense to get to them like the Giants did). Stick someone like Torrey Smith on this team and we've got a fighting chance.

The Texans strike me as being stuck in the same place the Oilers were in the 70's where the Steelers were just better than them everywhere but RB and the Oilers never put enough offensive talent around Earl to compensate for the difference between Bradshaw/Swann/Stallworth and Pastorini/Stabler and our playmakers.

Pancakes just tweeted that we've officially activated Posey off the PUP

While I was extremely skeptical of the selection of Posey during the draft, and my skepticism continued throughout most of the year, it seems that he's working extremely hard to come back and help this team. While I still think some better decisions could have been made with that draft pick, there's nothing we can do now. I'm gaining more and more belief in Posey. The reports I've read state that he's been doing everything he can, and the alacrity with which he's returned from a very serious injury is definitely commendable. This was a big step in changing my mind on this kid, and hopefully he continues because I'll be happy to admit that I was wrong if he can be a difference maker.
