One Week Later, Texans Waive RB Mike Bell

It didn’t take too long for the Texans to have seen enough of RB Mike Bell – as today the team waived him.  He was signed just about a week ago, and for the Texans, a team with needs at the RB spot, to cut him, it shows that he may be at the end of the road already in his NFL career.  He carried the ball 157 times for 677 yards as a rookie in 2006 with Denver, but fell out of favor last season, and then the Broncos let him go.

Rumor has it Bell came to the Texans out of shape, and his conditioning was an issue, as after the first practice coach Gary Kubiak said: “He looked a lot faster than everyone else to begin with but then he got tired.”  Not a good sign for a player trying to make an impact and make a team.

    Hah, yeah I saw him last Saturday at Training Camp. He didn’t look good and was injured on his first play running out of bounds.

    What really worries me though is Andre Johnson. I know his injury was a groin pull, not hamstring. The Texans might be worried bout him too…so they might be keeping stuff from us. I’ve noticed Kub, much like his old HC Shanahan, does that…tells us everything’s ok and he would be there if it was gametime, but in actuality, the guy would never play. Check Kubiak’s quotes on Ahman’s and Andre’s injuries; they follow that. And so does Kubiak’s talk on Ahman’s injuries last year. Jacoby’s too. Ah Kub!
