Barwin to Play Big Role in Phillips 3-4; Not Long from 100%

While many Texans fans are loking forward to Connor Barwin’s recovery, the Houston Texans already have plans for his return.  Last offseason, the coaching staff were in the midst of giving Barwin heavy playing time at defensive end behind Antonio Smith opposite Mario Williams.  However his season ended before it began when he dislocated his ankle on September 12.  Head coach Gary Kubiak said about the 2009 second round pick last week:

“We have high expectations for him. He’s a very big part of the future of this franchise, and of Wade (Phillip)’s defense also.”

Barwin told Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com that he’ll be 100% in two months.  If so, he’d may just be back by the Texans June minicamps.  His pending recovery will decide if he’ll be this year’s PUP practicioner throughout the offseason.  That is if the league can stick it together for a 2011-2012 season.
