DeVier Posey could return from PUP next week

NFL trainers are going to have to come up with new schedules, because it appears every injured player in the league is ahead of his.

The latest to make a sooner-than-expected comeback is Texans wide receiver DeVier Posey, who tore his Achilles in Houston’s playoff loss to the Patriots in January.

According to Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com, Texans coach Gary Kubiak said Posey is close to being activated from the PUP list, and could be back as soon as next week.

Posey said his doctor told him a return for the regular season opener was possible.

“I can almost dunk now,” Posey said. “It’s pretty amazing.”

A torn Achilles used to be an automatic year out, but players such as Terrell Suggs have changed the timetable, and Posey could be the next to change what we expect from such injuries.

    Great to have you back DeVier…hard to believe he’s coming back that quick. I tore my Achilles three years ago and I’m still struggling, but then again I’m a 45 year old fat guy.

    …………….A torn Achilles used to be an automatic year out, but players have changed the timetable with HGH. And Posey could be the next to change what we expect from such injuries now that the union and NFL have agreed on HGH testing.

    Well with Hopkins being impressive as he has been Posey may not have a spot to com back to….

    Johnson and Hopkins are locks
    Keyshawn Martin is probably the slot receiver
    Posey is going to have to battle Lestar Jean for that back up outside role. Lestar again looks like he could be a star if he can get the butter off his gloves.

    I have to admit, not many people in Houston thought Posey would be ready for the season rather less camp….
