Injury roundup: Texans linebacker Darryl Sharpton out for year


We get the biggest injuries in the rumor mill. (Although there weren’t many on Sunday.) We try to collect other injuries to track every Sunday night right here.

1. The Texans announced that reserve linebacker Darryl Sharpton is out for the year with a torn quad tendon.

2. Browns running back Montario Hardesty will get an MRI on his injured calf after leaving Sunday’s game early. Cleveland had to rely on Chris Ogbonnaya had to take over as the team’s primary back with Peyton Hillis also out.

3. Broncos right tackle Orlando Franklin left Sunday’s game against the Lions with a left knee injury.

4. 49ers defensive end Ray McDonald left with a hamstring injury. He’s quietly enjoyed a great year.

5. Giants wideout Hakeem Nicks will undergo a Monday MRI on his strained right hamstring, which he hurt late in New York’s win. Ahmad Bradshaw hurt his foot in that game, but came back quickly.

6. Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones sustained a right hamstring injury on his first punt return of the year.

7.┬áSaints right tackle Charles Brown left Sunday’s game with a knee injury. New Orleans was forced to go to their third right tackle of the year.

    What the heck is up with the trainers in Houston? Are they not preparing these guys or something? Forget practice go into the cleveland game unprepared and keep them in the gym already. Thats like 7 guys on IR now!!!!

    It’s unfortunate to see Darryl Sharpton suffer a season ending injury. Now if it was Al Sharpton who suffered a career ending injury…

    Adam jones has some serious bad luck. Out for 12 months then the first play of the first game he plays he get injured again. I was looking forward to him coming back because bengals secondary sucks. Should’ve resigned joesph and let hall go.

    To quote Ndamukong Suh, Sharpton’s injury was “karma” for that forearm that Brian “Steroid” Cushing threw at Blaine Gabbert…

    Add Sharpton injury to Karem Jackson’s one and you know the Texans got the wrong injured ones. Sharpton and Jackson? Where have I seen that one before?
