Draft Scout DeVier Posey News
09/02/13 - WR DeVier Posey played for the first time since suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon in the playoff loss to New England. He caught two passes for 18 yards in the last preseason game against Dallas. He'll be brought along slowly in regular season.
08/18/13 - WR DeVier Posey will be activated from PUP Monday and should play against New Orleans, according to coach Gary Kubiak.
Posey was been sidelined since undergoing surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon, an injury he suffered in the playoff loss at New England.
"It would be up there with me coming back from my suspension," Posey said about being suspended by the NCAA while playing at Ohio State. "It would probably mean a lot more than that, just because I had to dig deep. I had to really pull myself out of this injury."
Just about everybody but Posey thought he'd begin regular season on PUP and be forced to miss at least the first six weeks.
"He's worked extremely hard, and he's been running a lot of routes," Kubiak said. "It looks like we're very close to pulling him off PUP, and, hopefully, he's back working. The thought process in the offseason was it probably wasn't going to happen this early, but it sure looks like it's got a chance. That would be a huge boost to our team."
07/31/13 - WR DeVier Posey is on PUP. He underwent surgery in February to repair a ruptured Achilles tendon. His goal is to be ready for the opener at San Diego, but that might be too much to ask. He could start the season on PUP.
01/15/13 - WR DeVier Posey, who got more playing time down the stretch, suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon in his left foot with 6:31 left in the playoff loss to New England. He had three catches for 45 yards, including a magnificent 25-yard touchdown reception.
The coaches had high hopes for Posey perhaps starting next season opposite Andre Johnson, a job that's belonged to Kevin Walter for the last five seasons.
"I felt like I'd been shot," Posey said. "I'd never felt anything like that before. I kind of bounced, and it happened. I thought somebody had thrown a rock and hit me. We'll have to find the doctor to do the surgery, and I'll start my rehab as soon as possible."
If the Texans determine Posey won't be ready for the start of next season, it could affect their thinking in the draft and free agency.
"It's a big blow," coach Gary Kubiak said. "You just feel bad for the kid because I think he had put himself in a position to come back here next year and push for a starting spot.
"We're still in an evaluation process. We know he has an Achilles that has to be repaired. There are different levels of how they're repaired and whether we're talking about six months or eight months."
01/13/13 - WR DeVier Posey suffered a torn Achilles tendon in Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots, the Houston Chronicle reported. A torn Achilles is a serious injury that will require surgery, and it is uncertain whether he will be ready for the start of the 2013 season. Posey, a rookie, did not have any receptions in the first 12 games of the season, but had six catches for 87 yards in the last four regular-season games. He had three catches for 47 yards in Sunday's game before the injury.
