Texans Rookie DE David Hunter Tears Toe Ligament Days, Done For The Year
Rookie defensive lineman David Hunter, who got promoted from the practice squad to the active roster just this week with the loss of Tim Jamison, suffered a torn toe ligament in practice Thursday and will have to undergo surgery Monday. In other words, his season is over before it began.
“A bad break – literally,” the disappointed former Houston Cougar said as he limped around the locker room with his left foot encased in a boot.
Hunter was hurt when he stepped awkwardly on a teammate’s foot just before the workout ended.
“It definitely hurts a lot,” he said of having to go on injured reserve. I was really excited about getting an opportunity to play with the fellas. But at the same time it’s part of the game. I’ve just got to do whatever I’ve got to do to come back.”
Kubiak admitted Hunter wouldn’t have played much of a role, if any, against the Ravens but said, “It’s a very unfortunate situation” because of the progress Hunter had made since barely landing a spot on the practice squad.
