Texans Ready to do Whatever to Keep Green Healthy


The Texans want, and more importantly – need Ahman Green to be healthy and 100 percent as they get into the rigors of the regular season and go up against the best in the NFL.  So it’s no shock that the team is going to take it easy against him this preseason as they get set for their first preseason game this weekend.  Same goes for the practice routine, which Green at 30 years old is slowly starting to get use to.

“I’m a practice guy,” Green said. “I love to practice. I love to hit. But I’m learning that I have to sometimes give my body a rest. “It’s a little hard for me to bite the pill on that because I’m the type of guy who will play with anything. I played with two twisted ankles, shoulders busted up and haven’t said anything until the game is over and I just ask for a bag of ice. I’m old school, for sure. But sometimes it gets you in trouble, and the coaches or the training staff has to be wiser than you.”

While Green was with the Packers, he was on the field every chance he could get, to the point where it has been said that people hid his practice gear so he couldn’t get out there.  As the Texans prepare for the season, they will do whatever it takes to make sure their free agent investment is ready to go.  Even if it comes to that.
