Texans place Danieal Manning on injured reserve

On Monday, Texans safety Danieal Manning said he was still waiting for word on the severity of the leg injury he suffered against the Rams last weekend.

The reports at the time were that Manning would miss up to two months with a fractured fibula, but, as it turns out, Manning will be out a little bit longer. The team announced that they have placed Manning on season-ending injured reserve. The loss of Manning leaves Shiloh Keo to start alongside Ed Reed at safety, which will not be a good thing for a Texans defense waiting to see Reed resemble the player he was in Baltimore.

Manning is under contract for next season for a base salary of $4.5 million, although the remainder of this season will probably have to play out before we have a clear idea about how much turnover there will be in Houston.

The Texans also announced that rookie cornerback A.J. Bouye has been placed on injured reserve. Bouye, who signed with the team as an undrafted free agent, played two games this season.

The team signed cornerback Elbert Mack, who was with the Texans in training camp, and promoted linebacker Mike Mohamed from the practice squad to replace them on the roster.

    Why wouldn’t D.J. Swearinger fill in for Manning? I feel like Swearinger can be a great NFL strong safety. And with Ed Reed playing free safety behind him, he’ll have a lot less to worry about (considering he’s a rookie). I like Shiloh Keo but he’s mainly a great special team player for us. This is the duo I wanted to see from the beginning of the season, and Manning play a Nickelback hybrid kind of position. Just my two cents.

    What team does Ed Reed play for again? Haven’t heard of him since Feb 3rd.

    It’s not like the Texans will be in the playoffs this year anyway.
