Houston Texans fans might be worried about T.J. Yates' shoulder after he went down with an injury during Sunday's matchup. The Texans were already in the playoffs, but Yates was getting his work in when he was hit hard, injuring his left shoulder in the process. With a playoff game looming this coming weekend -- either Saturday or Sunday -- Yates' health is of the utmost importance, which is somewhat scary in itself.
But never fear! Yates didn't need his non-throwing shoulder anyway.
Texans QB T.J. Yates said of the shoulder he injured in the 1stQ against the Titans: "it's my left shoulder. I don't need it."— Mark Berman (@MarkBermanFox26) January 1, 2012
This clearly means amputation is an option. On the plus side, Texans fans probably don't have to worry about the Jake Delhomme Playoff Experience (tm), which should put some fears to rest. Delhomme did well on Sunday, completing 18-of-28 passes for 211 yards and a touchdown, but ... well, it's Delhomme.
