Everret, Poole and now Joppru

Knee mishap floors Joppru
Injury-plagued TE drops during non-contact drill; MRI set for today

THE PAINFUL TRUTH

Bennie Joppru, a second-round draft pick from Michigan in 2003, has yet to play his first pro game:
2003
• Pelvic hernia: Goes on IR Aug. 31; out entire season.
2004
• Pelvic hernia: Lingering groin woes force return to IR.
2005
• Possible torn ACL in right knee: MRI exam today.


Until about 25 minutes remained in the first of a series of on-field coaching sessions, Bennie Joppru had run, cut and caught with great consistency.

For one of the few times in his brief and oft-interrupted pro career, the Texans tight end was going about his business on Monday as just another one of the guys.

Then, in an unfortunately familiar scene, something went terribly wrong.

Attempting to make a cut in the middle of the outdoor grass field, Joppru tumbled to the ground and clutched his right knee. He tried to get up, but thought better of it and immediately was surrounded by trainers. Within minutes, Joppru had been helped off the field and loaded onto a cart, quite possibly the victim of a third season-ending injury in as many years.

This guy sounds like a Yatil Green, Jr. Better cut their losses and move on.

Yeah man, sucks for Joppru, it's his 3rd year he was injured. I wonder if the Texans will give him another year.

I can only imagine the agony and defeatist feeling of having a season-ending injury and be out for the 3rd straight year rehabbing.
