RB Slaton says he’s 100 percent and ready to go

After a week of some not so good news when it came to LB Brian Cushing, the Texans got some much needed good news as RB Steve Slaton declared himself ready to go and 100 percent in a radio interview:

During a Sunday appearance on SportsRadio 610 in Houston, Texans running back Steve Slaton declared himself 100 percent recovered from offseason neck surgery.

The operation, described as “cervical fusion,” was designed to repair nerve damage in Slaton’s neck. Texans coach Gary Kubiak believed that the nerve problems may have contributed to Slaton’s frequent fumbling last season.

The former West Virginia Mountaineer fumbled seven times in 11 games (10 starts) after doing so just three times in 16 games (15 starts) as a rookie.

Slaton also revealed that he’s shed 15 pounds, getting down to 200. The new weight is closer to where Slaton played in college and in his first pro season.
