Texans' Trindon Holliday out for season

Texans rookie return man Trindon Holliday, the smallest player in this year’s NFL draft and one of the fastest, will need season-ending surgery to repair torn ligaments in his thumb.

It looks like he’s done,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. “[He] can’t get it under control, so it has to be fixed.”

The 5-foot-5 Holliday, a sixth-round draft pick out of LSU who won the NCAA 100-meter championship in 2009, will have surgery Wednesday.
The thumb injury bothered him in the Texans’ second preseason game, when he dropped two balls.

Holliday is the second member of the Texans’ 2010 draft class to be lost for the season; second-round pick Ben Tate has been placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

    They knew what they were doing.. If he can’t catch, they’ll have a “surgery” for him to stay on the team until he’s ready to be a pro football player.

    Call it the Curse of Cushing. The guy should have just come clean from the beginning and it mostly would have been forgotten now.

    Injuries, no running game, a non-existent secondary, a coach who can’t manage a game clock, and a weak defensive line (outside of Williams) still haven’t stopped Texan fans from, once again, saying this is their year. 7-9.

    He was probably over-training.

    Suddenly all the good humor vanished from the “Trindon Thumb” moniker attached to him in camp.

    Did you forget about the unstoppable passing game? It’s kinda funny that no one could stop it even though they knew where it was goin, because of the lack of a runnin game. Imagine if there was a runnin game… it would be a complete unstoppable offense. The defense is good with the exception of the secondary (excluding Pollard.) Everyone is quick to jump on Cushing, but fail to remember that he passed all of his test during the season. It was the test before the season started that he failed. Must be good juice to make you better and better every week without takin it anymore. And finally, I am if you haven’t noticed already… a proud Texan’s fan. They will make the playoffs this year and should have last year, if it weren’t for the Colts letting the Jets in by throwing the game to them to bust up their perfect season. With a Jets’ loss in that game, the Texans owned that Wild Card spot. I don’t know who your team is, but ask yourself… would they make the playoffs if they were in the Colts division? P.S. I’m glad Holliday is out. He sux anyway. Don’t draft out of LSU!!!!

    Musta been that kick off in the Saints game that hurt his thumb. Morestead does have some power behind his kicks. That was kinda like me kicking to a three year old…………….Maybe next year it will be his neck.
    db3300…………quit your whinning. Texans have not paid their dues yet. They have about 25 years to go…………Ha

    Holliday already had the injury heading into the Saints game. They thought he could play with it. Evidently not.

    Tough break for the kid. Hope he gets back on the field next year. He was just a return specialist anyways. Ben Tate is the bigger injury.
