Adibi to Start Alongside Ryans and Diles?

Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com reported Monday that Xavier Adibi will likely be the Texans starting outside linebacker in place of Brian Cushing during his four game suspension.

Linebacker Xavier Adibi, a leading candidate to start at strongside linebacker during Brian Cushing’s four-game suspension, returned to practice after missing the better part of a month with a groin injury. “He did good,” Kubiak said. “He took the whole practice and looked good moving around, so hopefully we keep going. That’d be a big plus if he’s at 100 percent by the end of the week.” Kubiak said that Adibi will definitely play in the preseason finale on Thursday.

Injuries at linebacker have the Texans staying put with what they have.  Look for Adibi to start and Sharpton, although injured, to continue to backup starting weakside linebacker Zach Diles.
